Hello,
Yes, this is because fish oil contains the omega 3 fatty acids that help in reducing bad cholesterol, LDL. Helps to be the main animal source of omega 3. It acts in the prevention of diseases cardiovascular problems and improves blood fat levels, reducing triglycerides and increasing HDL. It also has anti-inflammatory and antioxidant action.

Cholesterol is critical for the good performance of various functions in our body, such as the production of sex hormones, cortisol and also vitamin D, essential in calcium absorption. Balanced eating, regular exercise and good lifestyle habits like avoiding drinks and cigarettes are the first step in maintaining a healthy heart. However, either by medical recommendation or by precaution, many people make use of supplementation to reduce bad cholesterol. This happens due to the rush of the day to day, the lack of time or just to ensure a healthier life
