Fish oil is widely used for its high levels of EPA and DHA, two essential Omega-3 fatty acids. Our bodies can’t manufacture these compounds so they must come from food or supplements. Omega-3s are important for circulatory health, red blood cell formation and in the formation of cell walls. Additionally, they increase HDL cholesterol, known as “good cholesterol”. They are also commonly used for joint health and cognitive function. For athletes, intake of essential fatty acids improves in-training endurance and strength. Omega-3s can reduce inflammatory response from training, promote faster recovery and affect muscle growth.

This daily dose is research supported and can positively influence heart health.

Can Omega 3 Fish Oils help reduce joint pain?
In any kind of joint problems, pain comes from two main sources:
1. Exposed nerves in the bone which are vulnerable to friction and chemical irritants when the protective cartilage layer is destroyed.
2. Inflammation which causes the synovial membrane of the joint to swell and produce excessive amounts of joint fluid, example: “water on the knee”.
Omega-3 fatty acids have been research shown to reduce inflammation by blocking the production of inflammation-producing chemicals which stimulate pain nerves in the body.
