Omega-3s may extend life
Doctors have been studying the heart-health benefits of omega-3 fish oils for over 40 years. In this review of 11 studies covering 371,965 people, those who got the most omega-3s from diet and supplements, and those with higher circulating levels of omega-3s were less likely to die from any cause compared to those with lower levels of omega-3s.

For diet and supplements, doctors found that each 300 mg increase in omega-3s per day reduced the chances of dying from any cause by 6 percent. Measuring circulating levels of omega-3s, each 1 percent increase in circulating levels of EPA and DHA reduced the chances of dying from any cause by 20 and 21 percent, respectively.
