DHA supplementation improves fasting and postprandial lipid profiles in hypertriglyceridemic men
It never ceases to amaze me the bias in medicine today against Mother Nature. We see clinical trials with statin drugs that lower levels of triglycerides maybe 20% and the medical community bows down before the might of the HMG CoA reductase inhibitors. Well, here we see good ‘ole DHA drastically lowering both triglycerides (24%) and lowered large VLDL (the worst of the worst for lipids) and incredible 92%. So why on Earth do we still use the statin class of drugs?
Incidentally, this study found that all the changes occurred up to 45 days and not beyond.
