Fish oil and neurovascular reactivity to mental stress in humans

01 Apr 2013Jason R. Carter, Christopher E. Schwartz, Huan Yang, Michael J. Joyner

8 wk of fish oil supplementation significantly attenuated both HR and total MSNA reactivity to mental stress and elicited a paradoxical blunting of calf vascular conductance. These findings support and extend the growing evidence that fish oil may have positive health benefits regarding neural cardiovascular control in humans.
