Omega-3 & Body Weight

A recent study from the British Journal of Nutrition, looked into the relationship between omega-3 and body weight. The study included 124 participants of different weights.*

Blood samples were taken from the participants to check for levels of omega-3. Researchers found that the obese individuals had significantly lower plasma concentrations of omega-3, compared to healthy weight individuals. They suggest that omega-3 may contribute to a smaller waist and healthier BMI.
