Heart health supplements such as omega-3 are high in demand as they reduce the risks associated with sudden cardiac death.

Further, omega-3 is also supposed to lower the levels of blood triglyceride.

Fiber, especially soluble fiber, has been scientifically proven to reduce cholesterol. Oats have the highest amount of soluble fiber and hence, are one of the key heart supplements.
