Increased consumption of omega-3 fatty acids may protect against obesity-related damage of the liver, which may lead to diabetes, says a new study from Spain.

"Our study shows for the first time that lipids called protectins and resolvins derived from omega-3 fatty acids can actually reduce the instance of liver complications, such as hepatic steatosis and insulin resistance, in obese people," said researcher Joan Claria from the University of Barcelona.


Pharmanex Optimum Omega

Supports Cardio, Immune, and Joint Health*

Optimum Omega is a dietary supplement providing ultra-pure fish omega-3 fatty acids. Used daily as part of an essential nutritional supplement program, Optimum Omega provides important omega-3 macronutrients for optimal health and wellness.

Primary Benefits

  • Promotes cardiovascular health*
  • Promotes a healthy immune response*
  • Supports joint function and mobility*
  • Provides natural vitamin E, a potent antioxidant

What Makes This Product Unique?

  • Ultra-pure source of fresh fish oil tested free of toxins, pollutants, and heavy metals
  • Omega-3 fatty acids from a marine source is more desirable than from a plant source for two reasons. One, most plant and vegetable oils offer only limited amounts of omega-3 fatty acids (less than 1%). And two, even the best plant sources, such as flaxseed oil, do not offer EPA and DHA, the specific omega-3s with the most notable health benefits.

Since we are talking about Optima Omega, I thought I'd put in another link. his time about latest findings on Omega-3.
