Lower triglycerides with fish oil

May 19th, 2011 Comments off

To lower triglycerides you will need to consume large amounts of Omega 3 fatty acids. Take 6 capsules of fish oil per day. Take 2 in the morning ,2 at lunch and 2 at dinner. Flax seed oil capsules are “ok” if you dont like the fish oil. Even thou Flax seed is alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), some of it (~10%) is converted to eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) which reduces triglycerides. Also starting a zero carb diet will get you to an optimal level of triglycerides, which is aprox under 100mg/dL. When purchasing a good quality Omega 3 supplement, make sure the ratio is 2:1 of EPA and DHA.
