One needs to know the amount and type of fat (oil) in the supplements to know if it conflicts with a heart-reversal program.

Assuming a person consumes 2000 calories a day, then 10% or 200 calories could come from fat. That's about 22 grams.

That sounds like a lot, but it really is a small amount. Even romaine lettuce contains over 10% calories from fat, so you'll see that fat calories add up quite quickly.

To see if the oil in supplements exceeds the maximum you wish to consume, you'll need to carefully count the fat calories in all the things you eat during the day. (For fat, dividing calories by 9 will give you grams.)

For an effective reversal program, any animal-based oils are best avoided.
