Research Insight – Omega-3 Makes Statins Work Better
Simply having four capsules of fish oil a day can double the effects of statin therapy, according to a recent Korean study.
Researchers gave 62 patients 2g of omega-3 fatty acids, twice a day, with 20mg of Simvastatin, or the Simvastatin treatment alone. All of the subjects were put on a low cholesterol diet.
After six weeks. the omega-3 plus Statin combination was able to lower triglyceride levels by 41%, whereas the statins alone reduced these levels by only 13.9%.
The combination therapy also produced significant reductions in low-density lipoprotein (LDL).
