  • Enrichment of low density lipoprotein (LDL) with long-chain fatty acids, such as eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA; 20:5 n-3) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA; 22:6 n-3) found in fish oil, is thought to increase its oxidative susceptibility although such an increase has not been clearly demonstrated. The purpose of this study was to determine the composition and fatty acid concentration of LDL obtained from postmenopausal women given a supplement of fish oil and relate these values to its oxidative… CONTINUE READING
