根據一項新發表在新英格蘭醫學雜誌的研究補充ω-3脂肪酸不會改善心臟健康。研究人員分析了在意大利風險及其防範研究(Risk and Prevention Study ) 中12,513名男性和女性的數據。在平均五年的調查中,相比那些服用安慰劑的,服用ω-3補充劑的病患者並沒有降低他們心臟病死亡或住院的風險。 這些發現支持了兩個在2012年出版的最新評論。 Roncaglioni MC, Tombesi M, Avanzini F, et al. n-3 fatty acids in patients with multiple cardiovascular risk factors.

Fish Oil Does Not Improve Heart Health

May 13, 2013

Supplementing with omega-3 fatty acids does not improve heart health, according to a new study published in the New England Journal of Medicine. Researchers analyzed data from 12,513 men and women from the Risk and Prevention Study in Italy. After an average follow-up of five years, patients taking the omega-3 supplements did not reduce their risk of death or hospitalization from heart disease, compared with those who took placebo. These findings support two recent reviews published in 2012. Roncaglioni MC, Tombesi M, Avanzini F, et al. n-3 fatty acids in patients with multiple cardiovascular risk factors.
