The American Heart Association (AHA) has recommended the use of Omega-3s obtained from fish and fish oil to reduce cardiovascular events in people who are already suffering from cardiovascular disease (CVD). In addition, Omega-3 is also used in reducing triglyceride levels, lowering blood pressure levels and slowing down the growth rate of atherosclerotic plaque. Therefore, growing CVDs along with rising concerns regarding health issues are the prominent factors for fuelling the growth of Omega-3 market.
