A new study demonstrates that people with the highest levels of omega-3's have the lowest levels of inflammation in their bodies. The authors were seeking to shed light on the powerful reduction in heart disease in people who use omega-3's. They looked at two blood markers for inflammation, CRP and IL-6. If you've read my article on Cholesterol you know that inflammation is the true culprit in heart disease and many other modern illnesses. The authors found drastic reductions in CRP and IL-6 in people with the highest levels of omega-3 in their blood.
The moral is: take your omega-3's!
