It's the story we've all heard before, "take your fish oil supplements to prevent heart disease."
Well apparently those fish oil supplements may have no benefit after all according to BBC.
A review of roughly 112,000 people across 79 trials found that people using supplements of omega-3, a fat that's prominent fish oils like cod liver oil experienced little to no benefit over a year or more.
Conducted by researchers at the University of East Anglia, they analyzed people from Asia, Australia, Europe, and North America.
Most were given omega-3 supplements and compared to those who took a "dummy pill."
The results show that supplement-takers had an 8.8% chance of death compared to 9% in the control group and there's little to no difference in heart-health problems like stroke, heart irregularities, and coronary heart disease.
What do you think about this?
Are you still going to take your Omega-3's for your heart?
