Omega-3 acids have a positive impact on components of the metabolic syndrome such as lipid and carbohydrate imbalances and insulin resistance. Omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids improve the lipid profile of blood serum by intensifying the fatty acid β-oxidation process in the liver, by increasing lipoprotein lipase activity, reducing the VLDL-cholesterol fraction and slightly increasing the HDL-cholesterol synthesis.
