A recent study conducted by the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas revealed that popular fish oil supplements may be “worthless” and may not provide any health benefit.
The study pointed out the large number of health claims made in the labels of fish oil supplements, targeting heart and brain health, joint and eye health, and immune health. The study confirmed that there is no scientific basis to support these claims.
Furthermore, the study showed that some labels on fish oil supplements suggest they support immune function, which is misleading and inaccurate.
The study pointed out that despite claims that support the benefits of fish oil for mental health, brain, joint and eye health, there is no strong evidence to support these claims.
Accordingly, more detailed and comprehensive studies are needed to accurately and reliably determine the benefits of fish oil.
Therefore, people should consult a healthcare professional before taking any nutritional supplements.
