Today’s hangout is on the “Truth About Fish Oil”
Many of our patients come to us taking high doses of fish oil, in an effort to decrease their inflammation, lower cholesterol, and promote vascular health.
While fish oil can do all of these things, we have found several other factors to be more important in decreasing inflammation and cholesterol, so that an individual does not have to rely on taking fish oil, or frankly some other antioxidant product.  Therefore, we will discuss the nuances of this in our broadcast today.
