Does Omega-3 fish oil really help to lower high triglycerides as revealed by a blood test? If yes then how long to take it for results to show? TQ

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.
