High omega-3 levels reflect healthy weight

In an omega-3 study, doctors said that earlier research found omega-3s can help the body burn stored fat by raising core body temperature, called thermogenesis. Researchers measured blood levels of omega-3s in 124 adults who had healthy weight, who were overweight or who were obese. As omega-3 levels rose, body mass index was healthier, and measurements at the waist and hip were smaller.
