Experts have found that in some cases, taking omega-3, often prescribed to reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease, can trigger the development of atrial fibrillation.

“Fish oil supplementation is given to patients with elevated plasma triglycerides to reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease … However, analysis … has shown that omega-3 unsaturated fatty acids in people with high blood lipids may increase the risk of developing … atrial fibrillation, or atrial fibrillation, “said study leader Dr. Salvatore Carbone.
