I have taken three 1000 mg softgel pills of Natural Omega-3 Concentrated Fish Oil as a Dietary Supplement for over a decade now. Each softgel contains 300 mg of Omega-3 Fatty Acids. During this time my triglyceride count went from a concerning High level of over 400 mg/dl (milligrams/deciliter) to the lower spectrum of Normal at just 44 mg/dl. And an initial precipitous drop actually occurred quite quickly over a matter of just several months.

Now please bear in mind that I also took other steps to help lower my “Trigs”. These productive measures included considerable weight loss, eating healthier, drinking alcohol less, engaging in regular strenuous physical exercise and simultaneously taking the cholesterol-lowering combination drug Vytorin 10/40 mg once a day. But clearly my daily regimen of 3000 mg’s of Fish Oil pills before bed played a significant part in my impressive triglyceride level improvement.

And Fish Oil pills are quite reasonably priced. I can buy 400 softgels at my local Costco for under $10 per bottle.

As you may know, triglycerides are the chemical form in which most fat is present in food as well as in our bodies. Elevated triglyceride levels can lead to the onset of coronary artery disease in some people.

Scientifically speaking (and I am neither a scientist nor a doctor), Fish Oil contains both docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA). Evidence from a number of clinical studies support the intake of recommended amounts of DHA and EPA in the form of dietary fish or fish oil supplements to help lower triglycerides, as well as reduce the risk of heart attacks and strokes in people with known cardiovascular disease and slow the formulation of atherosclerotic plaques, also known as "hardening of the arteries". However, high doses of DHA and EPA may also have harmful effects, such as an increased risk of bleeding, for example.

You should certainly always consult with a qualified healthcare provider before making decisions about any sort of therapies and/or health conditions.

So if you and your doctor determine that your triglyceride level needs to be reduced, a daily dose of Fish Oil containing Omega-3 Fatty Acids may be one of the measures to consider.

Why you want to keep taking Fish Oil Pills.
