Did you know fish oil is a natural blood thinner?
The growing use of fish oil supplements is a reflection of the ongoing battle to fight heart disease. As you probably already know, the omega-3 fatty acids in fish oil reduce inflammation and cut your risk of numerous degenerative diseases.

But did you know that omega-3 fatty acids also have a natural blood-thinning effect? That's right - these healthy fats influence your ability to forms clots that can cause a stroke, heart attack or another serious health problem. Keep reading to learn more about fish oil as a blood-thinning agent.

Fish oil has remarkable blood-thinning benefits…

In some cases, fish oil’s ability to reduce blood clot formation can be considered an acid. Fish oil’s blood-thinning benefits can help lower your risk of thrombosis. In this condition, a blood clot breaks free and circulates in your bloodstream. Finally, it lands either in your brain, where it can cause a stroke, or your heart, where it can cause a heart attack.
 
What’s more, the Linus Pauling Institute in the United States reports that in some cases fish oil has been found to reduce the risk of ischemic stroke, which occurs when a blood clot blocks an artery to your brain.

Take note of these blood-thinning risks associated with fish oil

In some cases, the blood-thinning effects of fish oil can be considered undesirable and even dangerous. For example, if you have a bleeding disorder such as haemophilia, you may find that fish oil exacerbates your condition.
 
If you’re already taking blood-thinning medications such as aspirin, warfarin or clopidrogel, the additional blood-thinning effect of fish oil can hinder your body’s ability to stop bleeding from a wound. The University of Maryland Medical Center in the United States says you shouldn’t take fish oil with any blood-thinning medications unless you do so under the supervision of your doctor.

THE BIGGEST COVER UP IN HISTORY: Lower cholesterol and statins could be making you older, sicker and weaker.
