Headlines hit recently, warning that we should take caution in thinking a ‘high’ omega-3 diet is as good for us as we previously thought just because the Inuit had low cardiovascular illness, including reduced incidence of metabolic syndrome markers such as high LDL cholesterol and poor insulin sensitivity.

The correct functioning of this extremely precise process is dependent on numerous factors including diet, stress and sleep – each […]

Due to EPA’s relatively low levels in cells, there […]
