Omega-3 Intake Reduces Stiffness In Arteries – Study

July 6, 2011: 10:05 AM EST
An analysis of data collected in ten clinical trials has found that omega-3 fatty acid intake was associated with improvement in two measures of the stiffness of arteries, a finding that “may account for some of its purported cardioprotective effects.” The study, conducted by Australian researchers, analyzed the impact of omega-3s on pulse wave velocity and arterial compliance and found that “supplementation with omega-3 offers a scientifically supported means of reducing arterial stiffness.” Several recent studies have verified the benefits of daily doses of omega-3s for cardiovascular health, including a reduction in the risk of sudden cardiac death.
