Study finds oral health benefits in omega-3 fatty acids

Sample News Big
Scientists at Boston University have discovered a new benefit to omega-3 fatty acids – Resolvins, a family of biologically active anti-inflammatories that could help in the war against periodontal (gum) disease. 
Omega-3 fatty acids have been known to help people with inflammatory conditions such as Crohn’s disease and rheumatoid arthritis, but the application of Resolvins extends to the oral arena too. 
The research was presented at the General Session of the International Association for Dental Research in Miami.
