Also making red blood cells slippier, reducing the chance of clotting. Check with your doctor

Omega-3 Bad Cholesterol Fighter----Omega-3 also has positive effects on heart health because of its effect of raising HDL cholesterol (also known as “good cholesterol”) and lowering LDL cholesterol (popularly nicknamed “bad cholesterol”). Plaque sticks to arteries because of inflammation.
Fighting Back High Levels of Triglyceride-----High triglyceride levels risk leading to atherosclerosis – the build-up of plaque in the arteries. Plaque build-up in arteries is a restriction of blood flow with the long term risk of a complete blockage. The right fish oils help reduce triglycerides.

Diabetes leads to increases in the density of fats in the bloodstream because the insulin is less efficient at delivering fat to cells. In short, insulin resistance means a higher level of triglycerides in the blood. Omega-3 effectively reduces the levels of triglycerides in the blood.

If you are taking a Quality Fish Oil and you experience negative symptoms –

Try taking the supplement immediately after you finish eating, as it will mix with the food  and be easier on the digestive system.

Take a small amount of the fish oil every day when you first start taking the supplement, as that will give your body time to get adjusted to the new supplement.

If you are taking a high quality fish oil and symptoms of any kind persist, you may need support with your digestion. Ie: digestive enzymes
