Final Thoughts on Fish Oil Effectiveness

Fish oil is effective for lowering triglycerides and preventing repeat heart attacks. It is probably useful for a number of other conditions as well.

This is especially important if you take it in high doses (which are often necessary to obtain the health benefits of fish oil).
