Study Finds Fish Oil As Effective as Lipid-Lowering Medications
Posted Wednesday, July 9, 2008

A study recently published by the medical journal Mayo Clinic Proceedings found that a combination of fish oil supplements, therapeutic lifestyle changes and red yeast rice was as effective as the statin drug simvastatin in lowering LDL-C cholesterol.  The supplements group, who were also encouraged to lower their intake of saturated fats and to increase their daily exercise, also displayed larger reductions in triglycerides and weight loss than the simvastatin group.

This is another terrific example of a study proving that dietary supplements, combined with a healthy lifestyle, can be as effective or more effective than prescription drugs.  Click here to read more information about fish oil, and, as always, please feel free to leave your comments.
