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

In brief: 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.
