The Importance of Omega-3

It's one of our most popular products for good reason. Literally everyone needs omega-3, and most everyone doesn't get enough from fish (mainly salmon, mackerel and sardines) to maintain a healthy level of omega-3, which is where the supplement comes in.

Simply put, omega-3 helps to reduce inflammation in various parts of the body. Inflammation is often at the root of many problems in our bodies. Omega-3 can be very effective in reducing pain and inflammation for people with joint pain, arthritis, fibromyalgia, cardiovascular issues and even Alzheimer's, which is considered inflammation in the brain.

How to Take It

As a start, our nutritionists recommend supplementing with 1,000 mg of omega-3 and going up to 3,000 mg daily.

It's recommended to take it with meals throughout the day; for instance if you're taking 3,000 mg daily, you could take one softgel with breakfast, lunch and dinner.
