New Study Shows Clear Benefit from Increased EPA & DHA Intake

omega 3 analysis

The relationship between Omega-3 intake and cardiovascular disease has a long history, going back to the 1970’s, but results from clinical trials have sometimes been contradictory.

This month, The Mayo Clinic Proceedings, published the most up to date meta-analysis of randomised controlled trials looking specifically at Omega-3 supplementation as opposed to including dietary advice or increased fish consumption. The results from 40 clinical trials, in total 135,000 subjects, show a clear benefit from increased EPA and DHA intake in terms of myocardial infarction, coronary heart disease events and mortality.
