Dr. Barry Sears Dr. Sears Comments:

There is no subject that has more “experts” than fish oil.  However, nowhere do you hear about resolvins derived from EPA and DHA.  These are the hormones that bring inflammation back to equilibrium.  Without them inflammation continues just at a lower level of intensity until there is enough organ damage that you call it chronic disease.  The levels of omega-3 fatty acids to successfully generate resolvins are high.  Taking 1-2 grams of fish oil per day is not going to affect the levels of resolvins and therefore have variable effects in treating chronic disease.
