Low-dose Omega-3 Linked to Lower Blood Pressure

f inflammation, C-reactive protein and interleukin-6 (IL-6), were not affected significantly by supplemental DHA.

The potential mechanism behind these effects was not studied directly, but the researchers state that other studies have proposed a direct effect of the omega-3 fatty acids on the electrophysiology of the heart by affecting the sinus node (the heart's natural pacemaker) or efficiency of the ventricles.

"Future work is needed to confirm these findings and to investigate further the effects of DHA on cardiac function," concluded the researchers.

Hypertension, defined as having a systolic and diastolic BP greater than 140 and 90 mmHg, affects about 600 million people worldwide and is associated with over seven million deaths.

Commenting independently on the study, June Davidson, a cardiac nurse from UK charity, the British Heart Foundation (BHF) told NutraIngredients.com: "This study shows that low dose supplements with long chain omega-3 can lower diastolic blood pressure. However we need further research to show whether such low doses could reduce cardiovascular events, such as heart attacks or strokes.

"Diets rich in long chain omega-3 fats are beneficial for heart health. The best source of these omega -3s is oily fish, such as mackerel, sardines, salmon, trout and fresh tuna."
