Omega-3 fish oil supplements lower the risk of heart attack and CVD

Post by AlbertY » Tue Oct 15, 2019 11:06 pm

People who received omega-3 fish oil supplements in randomized clinical trials had lower risks of heart attack and other cardiovascular disease (CVD) events than those who were given placebo, according to a new meta-analysis from Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health and Brigham and Women’s Hospital.

Kind of cliche, but anyone taking omega-3 on a daily basis? Any recommendation?

Here is an article that may help with some recommendations. I have been taking krill oil for over a year now and have seen LDL fall and HDL rise.
