Insulin resistance is behind so many health issues, and so many people have insulin resistance. Of course, a low-carb diet and fasting can help improve insulin resistance, but so can omega-3 fatty acids.

DHA and EPA are the two omega-3 fatty acids. These both have the capacity to improve insulin resistance and diabetes type 2.

These omega-3 fatty acids have very powerful anti-inflammatory properties. Anything that can reduce inflammation will also help reduce insulin resistance.

They support immunomodulation, which is the control of the immune system. There is a huge link between inflammation and the immune system. Omega-3 fatty acids also support the mitochondria in the muscles.

One study found a significant lowering of fasting insulin levels and decreased insulin resistance when they tested fish oils for insulin resistance.

Foods that contain omega-3 fatty acids (from highest to lowest):

1. Mackerel

2. Salmon

3. Cod liver oil

4. Sardines

5. Caviar

6. Anchovies

7. Tuna

8. Oysters
