Dietary supplementation with cod-liver oil significantly augments endothelium-dependent relaxations in porcine coronary arteries. The present study was designed to examine the effect of dietary administration of omega 3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (mainly eicosapentaenoic acid, the major component of fish oil) on endothelium-dependent relaxations in porcine coronary arteries. Male Yorkshire pigs were maintained 4 wk on a regular diet with or without supplementation with purified… CONTINUE READING
