The omega-3 fatty acids DHA and EPA play an important role in regulating the immune system and fighting chronic inflammation. According to a small American study, each of them has its own distinct contribution.
The study found out that DHA is the more powerful in fighting inflammation in the body, whereas EPA is better in improving the balance between pro- and anti-inflammatory proteins. This balance is essential in preventing different diseases, caused by chronic inflammation, such as heart diseases, diabetes, cancer, arthritis, neurodegenerative diseases and bowel diseases like Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis.
The results of this study are a good motivation to enjoy even more your fatty fish, isn’t it?
