Fish Oil is Dead… or Is It?

If you’re a patient or a regular reader of my articles, you know that one supplement that I often recommend is fish oil — a good source of omega-3 fatty acids.  These fats are essential to our health, because our bodies cannot make them from any other type of fat.  The many benefits of omega-3 fats include:

  • Cardiovascular health benefits
  • Immunomodulation
  • Anti-inflammatory effects
  • Psychological and behavioral health improvement
  • Improved bone density
A large study published recently in the New England Journal of Medicine (1) has called into serious question the well-established cardiovascular benefits of fish oil.
