Understanding Recent Omega-3 Science07 Dec 2018, Posted by Advocacy in
In November 2018, three scientific studies were published that looked at various aspects of the effect of long-chain omega-3s on the risk of cardiovascular events: ASCEND, VITAL (looked at Vitamin D and Omega-3s) and REDUCE-IT. There was much discussion about the findings of each report and whether or not they “proved the case” for or against the use of omega-3s to support heart health. You’ll find an overview of the findings from the three studies in this GOED Science Update. And a handy infographic based on the VITAL study results.
