Minor alterations of immune, neuroendocrine, and autonomic function may be associated with the chronic fatigue syndrome.

Omega-3 fatty acids decrease the production of putative mediators of inflammation, including interleukin-1, and tumor necrosis factor.

Since interleukin-1 and tumor necrosis factor are the principal polypeptide mediators of immunoregulation, reduced production of these cytokines by dietary supplementation with omega-3, may be a possible mechanism for the treatment of chronic fatigue syndrome.
