- Do your knees ache when standing or walking?
- Do you live with constant back-pain?
- Do you regularly take anti-inflammatories for joint pain?
Most of us keep painkillers in our medicine cabinet, so they can just become the default choice when it comes to needing relief from a nagging back ache or sore knees. However the relief is short term, a temporary measure until you’re ready to pop another pill when the pain returns so you’ve never actually solving the problem. So how can we help prevent inflammation in the first place?
Did you know we have different pathways in our body that encourage pro-inflammatory and anti-inflammatory responses. Omega-3 essential fatty acids (EFAs) encourage our body’s natural anti-inflammatory response and are crucial nutrients for optimal health including joint flexibility and comfort.
EFA’s are considered ‘essential fats’ because they are required for good health but cannot be produced by our bodies, therefore they must be obtained through either diet or supplementation >>see blog post about best sources for Omega-3. Research shows that the safest and most effective way to obtain omega-3 daily is through a premium quality fish oil supplement. Joint pain can be caused by a number of problems – such as an accident or injury, being overweight or arthritis.
