Omega-3’s Role in Inflammation and DNA. A recent study showed that overweight, sedentary adults who were given a daily omega-3 fat supplement realized a lengthening of their DNA telomeres and reduced blood markers for inflammation and free-radical damage compared to subjects given a placebo. In general, the findings of the study suggest that simply taking a supplement containing sufficient omega-3 fats (1,250-2,500 mg) each day may significantly reduce inflammation and oxidative stress, and re-lengthen telomeres.

Other substances in citrus, including potassium, may also play a role.
