How Omega-3 Fatty Acids Work to Reduce Inflammation, Insulin Resistance

Love to Eat| Researchers have identified a key receptor GPR120 on macrophages found in body fat, that responds positively to omega-3 fatty acids. Omega-3s activate this macrophage receptor, creating a broad anti-inflammatory effect and improved systemic insulin sensitivity. The discovery represents a key understanding in why omega-3 fats are so effective in reducing inflammation and helping to control insulin resistance. Read on in Scientific Food | Diet Facts.
