NotFish; 2Omega3Fats: Evidence is mostly 1 (epa), possibly a 2nd (dha), omega 3 fatty acid from phytoplankton; harvested from fish (easier/↓$), along with whatever else. About 1, 000 mg/day of epa tends to lower LDL particle concentrations ; in trials have ↓ed death rates ~12-15%. >4, 000 mg/day of epa (less so epa+dha), tends to ↓ blood triglyceride fat concentrations (far more effective: stop all sugars ; most carbs).
