Which supplements can help lower my triglycerides?
When it comes to supplements that can help to lower triglyceride levels, the best evidence, by far, is for high-dose fish oil (providing high concentrations of DHA and EPA) — although are some caveats for people who also have high "bad" LDL cholesterol and the freshness of your fish oil may matter. CoQ10, Red yeast rice, certain probiotics, cinnamon, berberine, liquid apple cider vinegar and other supplements may help to lower triglycerides in certain people, but the evidence for some of these is primarily from a small number of clinical trials (which are often company-funded).
