Neither is helpful: Recent studies have shown vit e supplementation to do more harm than good, and omega-3's have not been found to improve outcomes, i.E, no effect on cardiovascular health. So, get your nutrition from white meats, fresh fruits, green vegetables, and some nuts and whole grains. If your lipids are high, you may need to take rx medication -- see your doctor.
