Found naturally in fatty fish (think mackerel, tuna, salmon, and sardines), these healthy fats can reduce the inflammation tied to heart disease — among other benefits. “These healthy fats are not made by the body so you have to get them from food,” says Suzanne Steinbaum, DO, attending cardiologist and director of Women’s Heart Health program at Lenox Hill Hospital in New York City. She sometimes falls short of the American Heart Association’s (AHA) recommendations that call for eating fish twice a week, so she takes omega 3 supplements daily. If you don’t eat fish often, consider having your blood levels tested, she advises. These supplements may also lower the risk of dying after heart failure or a recent heart attack, according to the AHA.
