Omega 3s and Fatty Liver Disease

Whilst most people in the UK are familiar with alcohol-related liver disease as a result of heavy drinking, which is on the rise, many of us are unaware of the problems associated with another form of liver disease, non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) – also known as non-alcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH). A recent review of four human studies by a group based at the University of Edinburgh found that long-chain omega-3 fatty acids not only improve liver health and function, but also increase insulin sensitivity in people suffering from fatty liver disease.

I’ve recently published an article on Omega 3s and fatty liver disease and the study led by Dr Gail Masterton and I would be very interested to hear your feed back!
