FishOils Lower Trigs
Omega3 fatty acids at high doses (2-4 gms/day) do lower tg's, but are most effective when the tg'sare elevated >500mg/dl.
At this level they can lower tg's up to 45%. The effect is seen with fish based omega3's (epa & dha) not plant based (eg. Flax seed oil). There is a dose response seen. For each gram of 03's, about 10% additional reduction in triglycerides. Fish burp can be a side effect.
