1g of Omega-3 Daily
In two very large randomized controlled studies, led by Harvard University comprising over 26,000 participants who were tracked for 5 years, it was definitively shown that one derives significant heart health benefits from taking 1 gram of omega-3 fatty acids in a daily supplement. In fact the data were so positive that one researcher commented "The lower risk of heart attack was found particularly in those who have low fish consumption," Manson said. "That group had 19 percent reduction in all major cardiovascular events, plus they had a 40 percent reduction in heart attack."
Let me repeat that: A 40 percent reduction in heart attack! Wow, there has never been a drug that can show this type of benefit, and omega-3 comes with all the other benefits of lowering systemic inflammation.
I am very pleased that we finally have very large data sets to confirm the benefits of taking omega-3 daily. So even though many media outlets seem to seek out negative studies regarding omega-3 fish oil supplements. Be assured that the benefits are real and incomparable.
Now, let’s not forget that the type and brand of fish oil really matters. The vast majority of fish oil sold at the supermarket/drugstore/vitamin shop are of very low quality and negligible health benefits as they typically contain less than a couple hundred mg of actual omega-3 and are always in the inferior ethyl ester form - which loses 70% of it’s potency in digestion.
