In brief: Fish oil

We use fish oil to treat high triglycerides.
I suppose in some circumstance it might be associated with an increase in triglycerides but since we use it to lower them, probably not very common.

In brief: Fish oil supplements

Fish oil supplements help lower triglycerides, raise heart-protective HDL cholesterol, promote heart health, improve joint function.
Fish oil supplementation along with regular cardiovascular exercise can help you lower the triglycerides.
