Omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids have anti-inflammatory, antithrombotic effect (decreased blood clots) and reduce high blood pressure by reducing vascular walls.
Omakor exercises its effect by lowering levels of triglycerides in the blood and the formation of triglycerides in the liver, which reduces the risk of heart attack.
