Fish oils are an excellent source of Omega 3 Fatty Acids. Omega 3’s are important because they help reduce inflammation, improve our cardiovascular health and are crucial for the development of the brain and nerves.
Inflammation caused by back and neck pain can also be greatly alleviated by supplementation with a quality fish oil. Inflammation is a protective mechanism our bodies have to protect our muscles and joints. However, long term or chronic inflammation can lead to a breakdown of those same muscles and joints are bodies are trying to protect. 1000 mg of fish oil per day is recommended to help reduce inflammation and improve your health.
The anti-inflammatory benefits of Omega 3’s are well documented in the research. Even athletes will achieve better performance through enhanced lung function, improvement in circulation, endurance and muscle strength. But you don’t have to be an athlete to take fish oils.
Look for good quality fish oil that does not have a fishy smell or taste and preferably one that has been sustainably farmed and is environmentally responsible. At Biscayne Wellness Center, we carry Orthomega Fish Oil- a high quality, pharmaceutical grade supplement.
