Omega 3 Fatty Acids - More Than Just for Joint Pain has long be a fan of adding Omega 3 Fatty Acids supplements along with Glucosamine to aid in a reduction of chronic knee pain caused by degenerative joints. Of course, we advocate both supplements need to be pharmaceutical grade, even more important when faced with an Omega 3 Fatty Acid from Fish Oil, as fish are believed to have a higher chance of toxins (primarily mercury) than other supplements.

We have also talked about how Omega 3 Fatty Acids supplementation can balance the Omega 6 to Omega 3 ratios in our bodies and help reduce inflammation and possibly joint pain.

Omega 3 Fatty Acids have also been linked in numerous studies to better brain and eye development in babies and toddlers. I have several clients who have children between the ages of 5 and 12 who were thought to be ADHD/ADD and who did much better after being put on a daily mineral and anti-oxidant supplement AND an Omega 3 supplement.
