Omega-3 Supplements Don’t Help After Heart Attack

by Jodee on March 30, 2009

A new study has found that when patients who have had a heart attack are taking the medications recommended by their doctors, adding Omega-3 supplements as well doesn’t improve the prognosis. These results contradict earlier studies which concluded that Omega-3 supplements will help to prevent further heart problems.

Omega-3 fatty acids, which can be consumed when you eat salmon or mackerel, may help to prevent heart attacks. If you don’t eat fish as part of your diet, you can buy supplements to get the health benefits from this dietary supplement.
