North America Omega-3 Products Market Trends

This section covers the major market trends shaping the North America Omega-3 Products Market according to our research experts:

The United States Continue to Dominate the Market Share

The Rising Prevalence of Heart Diseases

Across the United States, the prevalence of heart disease is linked to a couple of key factors, such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol levels, and smoking. Other medical conditions linked to heart diseases, namely diabetes, overweight and obesity, unhealthy diet, and physical inactivity, are playing a key role in frequent heart attacks. Heart disease is the leading cause of death for people of most racial and ethnic groups in the United States, including African American, American Indian, Alaska Native, Hispanic, and white men.

Omega-3 has various health benefits, such as the prevention of cardiovascular diseases, by reducing triglyceride levels and obesity, enhancing bone and inflammatory health, and increasing immunity. Omega-3 fatty acids have been proven to help overweight individuals, by contributing to the improvement of body composition, by increasing metabolism and fat-burning potential.
