Did you know?

Did you know… that scientific interest in fish oils was sparked off by studies in the 1970s with traditional Greenland Eskimos who had much lower rates of heart disease and arthritis than even their geographical neighbours in Denmark; they also ate much more seafood than Danes.

Since then very convincing studies have shown that in men who have had a heart attack, eating oily fish or taking fish oil supplements improves survival rates and reduces the risk of another attack. Slightly less strong evidence also suggests that fish oil consumption (as food or supplements) reduces death rates and heart attack risk in normal adults. Growing evidence also suggests that fish oil may help to prevent or reduce the symptoms of arthritis.
