Connection between opioid receptors and fatty acid receptors

... it more viscose and likelier to spread slower but if FFAR senses too much fat it could widen blood vessels or block blood coagulation to minimize viscosity. For example omega-3 polyunsaturated acid inhibits blood coagulation. Another free fatty acid also widened blood vessel in heart. Uncaring ...
