INTRODUCTION Omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (omega 3-PUFAs) seem to favorably affect cardiac hemodynamics and may benefit the clinical course of heart failure patients. The role of omega 3-PUFAs supplementation on the left and right ventricular function of patients with chronic compensated systolic heart failure, under optimal treatment, was studied.(More)

Dietary or non-dietary supplementation of vitamins could potentially benefit energy balance. OBJECTIVE The objective of the present(More)
