Description

No supplement is approved by the FDA and is not evaluated by the FDA. The data below is taken from smaller studies in the medical literature which are also not evaluated by the FDA. 

Consumption of the fish-oil component eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) lowers rates of unstable angina and nonfatal coronary events in patients with high cholesterol, researchers report in Lancet. In an open-label, industry-sponsored trial, researchers randomized some 19,000 Japanese patients with total cholesterol levels at 6.5 mmol/L (roughly 250 mg/dL) or greater to receive either 1800 mg of EPA a day plus a statin, or statin alone. Five-year cumulative rates of major coronary events were 2.8% in the EPA group and 3.5% in controls (relative risk reduction, 19%). Rates of sudden cardiac and coronary death did not differ between the groups.

So lots of fish oil and a cholesterol lowering statin agent reduced heart disease better than a statin alone in patients with heart disease.

An observational study finds an increased risk for adverse neurodevelopment in children whose mothers limit seafood consumption during pregnancy. It should be noted that this study was sponsored by the fisheries. Probably the safest thing to do is to eat fish once weekly.

Eating fish at least once a week is also good for the brain, and may slow age-related mental decline by the equivalent of three to four years, a study suggests.

The research adds to the growing evidence that a fish-rich diet helps keep the mind sharp. Previous studies found that people who ate fish lowered their risk of Alzheimer's disease and stroke. Fish, such as salmon and tuna that are rich in omega-3 fatty acids also have been shown to prevent heart disease and sudden death.

In a recent study, researchers measured how well 3,718 people did on simple tests, such as recalling details of a story. The participants, all Chicago residents 65 and older, took the tests three times over six years. They also filled out a questionnaire about what they ate that included 139 foods.

"We found that people who ate one fish meal a week had a 10% slower annual decline in thinking," said co-author Martha Clare Morris, an epidemiologist at Rush University Medical Center. "Those who ate two fish meals a week showed a 13% slower annual decline."

The American Heart Association recommends that most people eat fish at least twice a week to reduce the risk of heart disease. Eating fish at least once a week cuts sudden cardiac death by half.

They also recommend 1 g/day of fish oils (EPA plus DHA) from diet or supplements for patients who already have heart disease. This amount may reduce risk of future cardiac events by 15%. Most fish oil comes in 1 gram soft gels and contains varying amounts of omega 3s called DHA and EPA.

Higher doses of fish oils can lower triglycerides... 2 to 4 grams/day of DHA and EPA can lower very high triglycerides up to 45%.

I recommend fatty fish such as salmon, tuna, halibut, herring, etc at least once a week. If you don't eat fish, take fish oil supplements even if you do not have heart disease. This is an all-star supplement-as if you couldn’t tell!
