The mechanism which makes omega 3 fish oil effective appears to be the activation of receptors on macrophages – a type of white blood cell – found in abundance in body fat. This has been well known for some time, and it certainly helps to explain the huge benefits of fish oil for human health.

Omega 3 fatty acids bring about a wide reduction in inflammation throughout the body, and also they improve insulin sensitivity in the body.

Reduced generalized inflammation is good for most aspects of health: including reducing propensity to develop arthritis, most cancers and heart and artery disease.

And improving insulin sensitivity mean that less insulin is needed to reduce excessive blood sugar levels. This not only reduces the tendency to develop diabetes, but also avoids the bad-health effects of too much insulin in the blood stream.

Now that this mechanism has been identified, there is even more reason to make omega 3 faty acids a part of your daily diet. It cannot be stressed enough how important it is to reduce ‘generalised inflammation’ in the body. This is rarely talked about, and not considered at all by most doctors: but it is vital information.

And make sure you are taking enough omega 3 in your supplement: I take 6-8 capsules a day of this omega 3 supplement. The best deal is to get the 240 capsule size sent to you monthly.
