A small study has shown that fish oil has benefits for heart failure patients. “Adding n-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids, even in patients that had a major improvement [on standard treatment], showed a further improvement in heart function and exercise capacity,” said study co-author Dr. Mihai Gheorghiade, a professor of cardiology at Northwestern University’s Feinberg School of Medicine.
This shows that even in patients who respond to therapy, “we can make them much better,” he added. “This opens the door for the potential of a natural therapy – so-called macronutrients – in the management of heart failure.”
