Fish Oil Lowers Triglycerides

Wednesday, 02 January 2019 04:31 PM Current | Bio | Archive

I’ve been recommending fish oil supplements to my patients for 20 years now, and I’ve seen the benefits with my own eyes.

Fish oil contains omega-3 fatty acids from polyunsaturated fats, which are beneficial in treating numerous conditions, from asthma to osteoporosis. But where they really shine is in helping prevent heart disease.

In fact, I generally prescribe fish oil over prescription drugs as my first line of therapy to lower triglycerides.

Fish oil also reduces inflammation, the process that initiates heart disease. If that wasn’t enough, fish oil also has an anticlotting effect on the blood, which helps to reduce the risk of heart attack.

I recommend taking 2,000 mg of fish oil daily.

If you’re already taking blood thinners such as Plavix or Coumadin, keep an eye out for telltale bruising. This indicates that your blood is being thinned too much, and you should stop taking the fish oil.
