DHA Omega-3s Linked to Reduced Heart Rate

Increased heart rate has been shown to be a risk factor for sudden cardiac death. A recent study suggests that taking DHA omega-3 supplements may reduce heart rate.


Researchers from Soochow University in China examined data from 51 randomized controlled studies that included approximately 3,000 participants. After examining the data, the researchers found that consuming DHA and EPA omega-3 supplements was associated with a “mild” but “significant” average reduction in heart rate of 2.23 beats per minute (bpm).


When the researchers looked specifically at differences between the effects of EPA and DHA, they found an average 2.47 bpm reduction association with DHA but no significant reduction for EPA.


The study was published online ahead of print on December 28, 2017, in the European Journal of Clinical Nutrition.


There are two types of omega-3s: DPA and EPA. Omega-3s have been linked to a number of health benefits, including improved mood, improved joint mobility, reducing the risk of age related macular degeneration, and aiding your immune system.


Because omega-3 fatty-acids are not found naturally in the human body, it is especially important to make sure that they are a part of your daily diet. Oily, dark fish such as tuna and salmon are high in omega-3s. For people who don’t like fish, consider taking a daily high quality non-fish supplement that has been tested for purity and potency.
