Fish Oil

Optimum Nutrition's Fish Oil contains pure fish oil, high in biologically active omega 3 fatty acids EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid). EPA and DHA are precursors to beneficial prostaglandins that act as hormone-like regulatory compounds. Research suggests that fish oil omega 3s support wellness, improve mood, relieve rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and prevent chronic diseases.

Omega 3s are considered essential fatty acids because the body can't make them from other substances and they must be supplied by the diet. Some experts believe that the western diet is deficient in omega 3 fatty acids. Therefore, fish oil supplementation can have important nutritional benefits. Research suggests that people with depression and rheumatoid arthritis have decreased levels of omega 3s.

A study review, published in the American Journal of Psychiatry, found that fish oil omega 3s offer therapeutic benefits, including mood-stabilizing and antidepressant properties. "Deficits in omega-3 fatty acids have been identified as a contributing factor to mood disorders and offer a potential rational treatment approach," the study authors conclude.

Omega-3 fatty acids can help treat and prevent arthritis by reducing inflammation and improving joint function. Researchers found that omega-3 rich foods or supplements can help reduce the number of tender joints and amount of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIS) prescribed for patients with arthritis.
