Should You Consider an Omega-3 Supplement?

Omega-3 supplements are among the most popular supplements taken
regularly by Americans, with an estimated
10%
of the population taking the vitamin regularly. Yet,
research suggests that not everyone will benefit from them.
Here’s a closer look at who may benefit from an omega-3
regimen.

In November 2018, researchers presented their findings from the
VITAL study
at the American Heart Association’s annual meeting. In the trial,
more than 25,800 healthy adults were put on a daily Vitamin D and
Omega-3 regimen, with a goal of determining whether omega-3 would
help to prevent cardiovascular events. Their findings didn’t
present one answer across the board, however.

According to the study’s lead author, some groups did benefit
from the vitamin, while others didn’t. The supplement didn’t
reduce the risk of cardiovascular events overall, but there was a
28% reduction in heart attacks. It didn’t appear to prevent heart
issues in healthy people overall, but participants who had less
than 1.5 servings of fish per week did experience benefits,
including a 40% reduction in heart attacks. African American
participants saw the largest benefit, with a 77% reduction in heart
attacks, which the study’s lead author says must be investigated
further.

A subsequent study,
REDUCE-IT
, looked at adults who were middle-aged or older and
had significant risk factors for cardiovascular events, including
elevated triglyceride levels. Participants were given either a
high-dose, prescription omega-3 medication, or a placebo. In
participants who took the medication versus the placebo, there was
a 25% reduction in the risk of dying from heart disease or
experiencing a cardiovascular event.

High-dose omega-3 supplements aren’t always recommended, as
they do present certain medical risks. Nonetheless, the study
author says that for people who are at risk of cardiac events, the
benefits of the supplement appear to outweigh its risks.

In general, omega-3 supplements should be reviewed by a medical
provider to determine if a patient would benefit and at what dose.
Practioner-grade supplements are recommended and if you are
