Fish oil Omega 3 and heart disease

By , April 7, 2015 1:36 pm

Individuals with high intake of Ω-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids,
usually associated with a high fi sh and low red meat diet, have
low rates of heart disease. Fish oil concentrates reduce triglyceride
levels and increase LDL particle size, a benefi cial effect when
administered in high doses (6–12 g/day).

 

Patients who had
LDL-C levels of less than 70 mg/dL and CRP levels of less than
1 mg/L after statin therapy had the lowest rate of recurrent CV
events.
