A Big Risk Factor Often Overlooked…

Dear Member,

When it comes to your heart’s health, your doctor may be focused on your cholesterol and not enough on other risk factors.

One risk factor and predictors of heart trouble that you need to consider when measuring your heart health is your triglycerides. I’ve been warning my patients about the link between triglyceride levels and heart health for years.

Triglycerides are often overlooked, particularly when cholesterol levels appear normal. High levels can substantially affect your heart’s health.

Triglycerides are a type of fat found in your blood. They provide a major source of energy for you between meals.

When you eat, your body uses the calories it needs for quick energy. Any extra calories it doesn’t use it turns into triglycerides that are stored in fat cells to be used later on. But, if you consistently eat more calories than you burn off, your triglycerides can become too high.

A simple blood test can show if your triglycerides are in a normal, healthy range. Following is a table of the ranges considered when reading your levels.


Less than 150 mg/dL


150 to 499 mg/dL

Very High

500 mg/dL or above

So what can you do to maintain healthy serum levels of triglycerides?

The first thing I’ll tell you is that you can do it safely and naturally.

One of the best things you can do for yourself is to get enough omega-3 fatty acids. And one of the best sources is fish oil. I recommend it to all my patients. It’s the healthiest fat you can have.

You don’t always get the omega-3 fatty acid that your body needs from your diet, so supplementing daily with fish oil will make up for it.

In fact, there are numerous studies that show the benefits of fish oil for heart health. And one recent study showed that treatment with fish oils significantly helped blood lipid levels.1 *

So for the heart health benefits of omega-3’s try taking one tablespoon of fish oil a day. If you don’t like the taste of the fish oil or for some reason can’t tolerate it, try fish oil capsules. They are a good alternative. They are also a bit more convenient and portable. However, since fish oil capsules are not as potent you usually would have to take several a day.

That is why I decided to develop a fish oil capsule that provides all the important EPA and DHA you need in just one capsule a day.  This new capsule packs a powerful punch of 700 mg of Omega-3’s (both EPA and DHA), which gives you what you need to maintain healthy serum levels of triglycerides and keep your heart healthy.*

My fish oil capsule is called Omeganol. Although it’s not available for general sale yet, as a loyal reader I am offering you a chance to try Omeganol RISK FREE.

To Your Good Health,

Al Sears, MD
