This is a much more detailed look, for anyone interested:

5. Cardiovascular Health

5.1. Cardiovascular Disease Risk

In secondary prevention of cardiovascular disease, a ratio of 4:1 omega6:3 or lower is associated with a 70% decrease in total mortality[317] as assessed by a single blind prospective study.[318]


5.2. Lipoproteins and Cholesterol


5.3. Triglycerides

Fish oil appears to be highly reliable in reducing triglycerides over a period of 8-16 weeks, and tends to reduce triglycerides by about 10-20% in persons with high triglycerides supplementing with a moderate dose.

The effect on triglycerides is chronic, as it does not influence TG levels after a test meal.[319]

Fish oil may be inhibited in part by Alpha-Linoleic acid in reference to triglycerides. One study noted a 51% decrease of TGs in a low ALA group compared to 21% in a high TG group.[320] This antagonism does not appear to carry over to incorporation into immune cells though, and may be unique to triglycerides.[321]


5.4. Endothelial Interactions

The mechanistic basis for the improved endothelium-triggered relaxation with n - 3 PUFAs may include the suppression of thromboxane A2 or cyclic endoperoxides, a reduced production of cytokines, the augmented endothelial synthesis of nitric oxide, an improvement of vascular smooth muscle cell sensitivity to nitric oxide, and a reduced expression of endothelial adhesion molecules[322].
