An animal study conducted by Saudi researchers analyzed the risk of cardiac disease in rats supplemented with omega-3 fatty acid in the form of fish oil. It concluded that omega-3 supplements could reduce the amounts of total cholesterol and proteins in the blood of the animals, thereby improving their cardiac health.
The study was supported by the University of Ha’il. Its results were published in the Australian Journal of Basic and Applied Sciences.
Based on their findings, the researchers proposed that omega-3 fatty acid-rich fish oil supplements might be able to serve as an adjuvant treatment for patients with diabetes mellitus and related conditions.
