Omega-3 fatty acids might reduce inflammatory processes by boosting a mechanism that cleans out dysfunctional or unnecessary proteins in a certain type of immune cells, according to a study published in the journal Autophagy.

These insights indicate that omega-3 supplements might be beneficial for certain multiple sclerosis (MS) patients, as earlier research indicates that a subgroup of patients might have increased activity in a particular inflammatory pathway, referred to as the type 1 interferon response.

Omega-3 refers to a group of fats that are found in high levels in certain foods, including fatty fish. Despite numerous studies indicating that omega-3 intake — either through diet or supplements — has anti-inflammatory properties, researchers are still in the dark about how these fatty acids protect from harmful types of inflammation.
