ONC: Dietary Supplements and Medical Food Supplements Containing Fish Oil (2013)


The effect of dietary supplements and medical food supplements (MFS) containing fish oil (specifically eicosapentaenoic acid [EPA]) on body weight and lean body mass (LBM) in cancer cachexia was reviewed. A dietary supplement is a single nutrient supplement in the form of a pill, capsule, liquid, chew, or other form. An MFS is a commercial or prepared food or beverage that supplements energy, protein, carbohydrate, fiber, or fat intake.
