Cholesterol-lowering food for PCOS and Heart Health Part 2

By Robin Nielsen, CNC, BCHN

As we said yesterday, dealing with PCOS is tough enough without having to worry about what it is doing to our cardiovascular system. One of the ways to relieve that concern, however, is to eat a diet that’s rich in healthy fats for heart health.

Eating the right fish can be heart-healthy because of high levels of omega-3 fatty acids, which can reduce blood pressure and the risk of developing blood clots. In people who have already had heart attacks, fish oil reduces the risk of sudden death.

Doctors recommend eating at least two servings of fish a week. The highest levels of omega-3 fatty acids are in:

  • Mackerel
  • Lake trout
  • Herring
  • Sardines
  • Albacore tuna
  • Salmon
  • Halibut

You should bake or grill the fish to avoid adding unhealthy fats. You can also take an omega-3 or fish oil supplement that helps to reduce inflammation, can help to regulate your menstrual cycle, balance blood sugar and improve brain health.
