Researchers in Japan have found that fish oil activates receptors in the digestive tract of mice, so cells are stored in the nervous system for fat metabolism. The researchers gave one group of mice a fatty diet containing fish oil, while the other group was given a diet without the supplement. They found that rats fed fish oil weighed 5 to 10 percent less.
