Many people use fish oil supplements with the expectation that it will benefit physical health, including the heart and mind.
But does it really happen? This question has been answered in a new medical study conducted in the United States.
The University of Texas Southwestern Medical School reviewed all evidence and data in this regard.
Research suggests that even if you think fish oil supplements are good for your health, you’re probably wasting your money.
During the study, the researchers examined the effects of daily use of the supplements and all other available data.
They discovered that most supplement companies make claims to improve heart health.
They also discovered that 1 in 5 people over the age of 60 use these supplements for heart health.
If you want to control high blood pressure or cholesterol, instead of wasting money on such supplements, eat more fruits or vegetables, start going to the gym, or take medications prescribed by a doctor, the researchers said.
They said that fish oil supplements do not improve heart health and people should not use them without a doctor’s advice.
They said that clinical trials of fish oil supplements in different countries have not found any benefit regarding the effects on the heart.
According to the researchers, instead of these supplements, if you make a habit of eating fish twice a week, it can benefit the heart more.
The results of this study were published in the journal JAMA Cardiology.
