When it comes to the debate over fish oil’s heart benefits, medical opinion keeps shifting more than lead changes in a Duke/North Carolina March Madness basketball showdown. But the tide has turned with a couple of recent studies.
“Omega-3 fish oil supplements linked with lower cardiovascular disease risk” – ScienceDaily. People who received omega-3 fish oil supplements in randomized clinical trials had lower risks of heart attack and other cardiovascular disease (CVD) events compared with those who were given placebo.
And a new study suggests that even plant-based Omega-3s, from sources like walnuts and flaxseed, may improve heart health.
