You decide: The last several big studies on the efficacy of omega 3 fish oils for preventing vascular disease were all horribly disappointing -- and I wasn't surprised. Some physicians would throw a statin or something at this LDL, others would discuss all options with you & look at other facts about you -- do you have other risks? Would you be open to some serious physical fitness instead? No simple answers. ...Read more

Marine fish oil: does lower triglycerides. You need to take high quality MFO. This means that 50% of the total mgs are in EPA+DHA. Also, large enough dose is needed. One capsule won't do it. Many folks take 2 caps in the a.m. and 2 in the p.m. Some folks take more. Peace and good health. Read the label. Nordic Naturals is a good brand. ...Read more
