US physicians have found that fish oil and vitamin D in the most common dietary supplements do not reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease and cancer.
In higher doses prescribed by doctors, fish oil helps people with high triglyceride levels and reduces the risk of death from cardiovascular disease.
Professionals welcomed the results of two studies presented at the American Cardiology Association conference. They said they were guidelines for a new treatment option for hundreds of thousands of patients.
About 10 percent of Americans drink apples of fish oil. Still, they used vitamin D, although there was no major research on their benefits.
"Vitamin D supporter claims it is beneficial to everyone but in this research, vitamin D has shown a great deal of" "said James Stein, cardiologist at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, who was not involved in the study.
Fish oil, also called omega-3 fatty acids, is found in salmon, tuna and some other fish. Reduces triglycerides and reduces inflammation. There are different types of fish oil with different dominant fatty acids.
With one study, doctors from Brigham and Womens Hospital in Boston tracked the effect of 4 grams of fish oil supplements available only on prescription. The study included 8,000 patients with high triglycerides and a higher risk of cardiovascular problems than statins. After five years, 17 percent had a surviving incident – heart attack, stroke, arterial obstruction requiring medical intervention, to 22 percent of people at the placebo.
This means that adding olive oil with high fat content reduces the risk of cardiovascular events by 25 percent, according to BTA. However, it has side effects such as arrhythmias.
The second study, carried out in the same hospital with a lower daily dose of 1 gram of fish oil, including 26,000 healthy volunteers, showed no difference between addictin and placebo although the first infarcts were smaller.
The second team also tested the effect of additives in the year. D. The study participants drank 2000 international units per year. D-3 or placebo for five years. The results show that vitamin D does not affect the incidence of heart attacks, stroke or cancer, although the latter have little to reject.
