Fish Oil Improves Heart Arrhythmia Problems

A new article in Forbes - “Fish Oil Nutrient Boosts Ailing Hearts”, discusses two new studies in which the use of fish oil improved arrhythmia , which is an irregularity in the force or rhythm of the heartbeat. The first study was on people receiving bypass surgery:

Following surgery a potentially lethal form of irregular heartbeat, postoperative atrial fibrillation, developed in 12 of the patients (15.2 percent) who received omega-3 fatty acids compared to a much higher 33.3% who were in the control group (those not given omega-3 fatty acids).

The patients treated with omega-3 fatty acids were also hospitalized for significantly fewer days following surgery than those in the control group.

The second study involved people with pacemakers:

The second study included 40 people with pacemakers and a history of atrial arrhythmias. Treatment with omega-3 fatty acids resulted in a dramatic reduction of atrial arrhythmias.
