Fish beneficial for heart rhythm disorders

Eating fish is beneficial for people with abnormal heart rhythm, according to a new report which speaks of its positive influence on the electrical system in the heart. There has been fresh proof from detailed animal study that has shown the link between consumption of fish oil and its benefits on heart rhythm disorders.

Dr. Dariush Mozaffarian, of Harvard Medical School, Boston, and colleagues studied the statistics gathered from 5096 adults to examine the link between consumption of fish n-3 fatty acid and its impact. The study subjects were aged 65 or more.

The study found that consumption of fish once a week brought about discernible improvement in the rhythm of the heart. And when fish was consumed atleast 5 times a week, there were marked improvements in the heart rhythm.

Mozaffarian said "Previously we have seen that intake of fried fish - which in the US are most often commercially sold fish burgers or fish sticks - is not associated with blood levels of n-3 fatty acids. This suggests that it may be the n-3 fatty acids in tuna and other broiled or baked fish that are having a positive impact on the heart's electrical parameters."
