Thank you for your enquiry

Firstly, it is always advisable, as stated in the media coverage, that anyone with concerns about prostate health should be checked by their GP.

However, for those people taking omega 3 for general health, it is important to gain perspective on this research, which most experts believe has significant flaws. The Health Food Manufacturer Association (HFMA) has issued a very helpful response to the media coverage, following consultation with specialists in this field. This may be viewed by following the link, below;

The conclusion is that there is no demonstration of cause and effect in this study, that almost all of the studies on omega 3 are positive and that the general public and healthcare professionals should bear in mind that Omega 3 fatty acids are an essential part of a balanced diet.

Once again we do stress that those with symptoms related specifically to prostate health should seek the advice of their doctor.

I hope this helps, but if you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact our Nutrition Advice Line on 01892 552175 or sally.davenport@naturesbest.co.uk
