Some people use fish oil to lower blood pressure or triglyceride levels. I do.
My doc has me taking low-dose aspirin for a completely different reason, although that's not to say it couldn't also contribute similarly.
I have a mechanical valve in my heart. (still trying to decide whether that makes me a cyborg) The aspirin makes the blood molecules slick, allowing them to pass through the valve with fewer of them being torn up in the process, so that more molecules remain functional in their different purposes. Being slick also helps keep torn molecules from gathering (clotting) at the valve.
There is more evidence that omega 3 fatty acids help your body in other ways too. You could 'search' for other benefits.
Remember that 'nutritionist' is not a professional degree.
