Effects of fish oil fatty acids on low density lipoprotein size, oxidizability, and uptake by macrophages.

Abstract

The effect of fish oil and corn oil supplementation on plasma lipids and lipoproteins and on low density lipoprotein (LDL) oxidation was examined in 20 treated hypertensive subjects. The randomized double-blind crossover study consisted of two 6-week interventions with 4 g/day of a highly purified fish oil or corn oil. Fish oil significantly (-24%, P < 0.01… (More)
