High Dose Of Omega-3 Supplement Reduces Inflammation In Weeks After Heart Attack

March 4, 2015: 12:00 AM EST
A U.S. study among 374 heart attack patients within weeks of the infarction found that taking a prescription-strength omega-3 supplement (Lovaza, 4,000 mg) lowered inflammation and seemed to protect against further declines in heart function. Researchers used cardiac magnetic resonance imaging to look at changes in patients' hearts and see the disease process before and after treatment. The researchers acknowledged that the study did not explore the association between omega-3 fatty acids and post-attack cardiac events, nor did it evaluate the treatment immediately after a heart attack.
