Does oleic acid help in increasing the benefits of omega-3 fatty acids when it comes to inflammation?

We are not aware of any specific role that oleic acid plays in helping augment the anti-inflammatory effects of the omega-3 fatty acids; however, when oleic acid replaces saturated fatty acids in the diet, LDL (bad) cholesterol levels improve, HDL (good) cholesterol levels remain stable, and insulin resistance improves. In addition, when oleic acid replaces excess carbohydrates in the diet, HDL cholesterol levels increase and triglyceride levels decrease.
