Jacob Bogatin: oily fish reduces the risk of heart disease
Scientists also found that a more extended daily use of 30 ml camellia oil rich in alpha-linolenic acid, which is part of the omega-3 fatty acid, reduces the amount of harmful intermediate-density lipoprotein (LPP) particles, notes Jacob Bogatin.
Lipoprotein LPP is the precursor of low-density lipoprotein (LDL), which is also known as bad cholesterol. Previous studies have shown that long-chain omega-3 fatty acids contained in fish have a beneficial effect on the size and composition of lipoproteins. "Both these changes can reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease," says Jacob Bogatin.
