Based on two articles that looked at multiple studies, fish oil supplements do not appear to have any previously claimed benefit in the prevention of heart disease. However, omega-3 fats have other benefits so if you choose to take supplements, they have no known side effects. One precaution: it is not advised that you take fish oil supplements with other blood thinners like aspirin that may interfere with normal blood clotting. Check with your doctor.
Choose salmon, tuna, trout or sardines for the most omega 3 content. Once again, supplements do not offer the healthy benefits of eating whole foods. Save your money and spend it on the fish.
