YOUR BODY NEEDS FATTY ACIDS LIKE DPA TO HELP THE INFLAMMATION RESPONSE WORK PROPERLY
This might surprise you, but fats actually play a very big role in how the body deals with managing your health, including the inflammation response.
This makes getting enough omega-3s from what you put in your mouth very important to your health since you'll see that your body needs omega-3 fatty acids for biological processes, but can't make enough of them on its own.
Fatty acids (like DPA) are used in the body to create the signaling molecules that start and stop these processes. Scientists refer to these fats as bioactive lipids, since it's been discovered that they have specific roles in health. These bioactive lipids are synthesized by the body as they are needed.
As we'll see just below, omega-3s like DPA play an important part in both roles as an anti-inflammatory and resolving inflammation.
