Research Reveals the Benefits of Omega-3 Fats Both in Heart Health and Joint Pain


Orlando, FL -- (SBWIRE) -- 08/25/2015 -- Omega-3 fatty acids can be found in certain fish types such as tuna and sardines. Consumption of these healthy fats is associated with a wide range of health benefits. Fish oil is particularly popular among individuals who are trying to improve their heart health. However, it seems that individuals with arthritis can benefit from it, too.

Research reveals the benefits of omega-3 fatty acids both in heart health and joint pain. Omega-3s, such as EPA or eicosapentaenoic acid and docosahexaenoic acid or DHA, are believed to be the cause of fish oil's medicinal value. The use of these fatty acids is believed to help improve joint mobility.

"People can obtain omega-3s from eating fish, but they can also take fish oil supplements to take advantage of the therapeutic benefits," said VitaBreeze Supplements spokesperson, Michelle O'Sullivan.

According to the American Heart Association, people should consume fish that contains high levels of EPA and DHA. These omega-3 fats are believed to help reduce risk factors associated with heart health such as blood pressure. They are also associated with the reduction of some types of inflammation.

Studies reveal that there are several ways that omega-3s work to enhance joint mobility. Omega-3s, such as EPA and DHA, are believed to help increase inflammatory markers such as IL-10 and TGF beta. They are also believed to help slow down the progression of osteoarthritis. Petri dish studies involving omega-3s EPA and ALA also revealed that these fats can help decrease inflammation in the cartilage's cell metabolism. Further studies also added that the combination of EPA and DHA has demonstrated more efficacy in reducing certain inflammatory markers than EPA and ALA combined.

The use of fish oil has long been associated with surprising health benefits. Omega-3s are believed to reduce one's risk of bone marrow lesions, and aid in certain aspects of joint health. Individuals who are engaged in constant and strenuous physical activities, such as bodybuilders and athletes, are also advised to have an anti-inflammatory diet, such as one with fruits and vegetables.

Aside from having an anti-inflammatory diet, they can also take fish oil supplements, particularly the ones with EPA and DHA. Since the use of omega-3s is associated with an improvement in joint mobility, athletes and body builders can take advantage of using fish oil. Even those who suffer from, or are at risk for, heart disease and arthritis can benefit from omega-3s. The most powerful fish oil supplements nowadays are those that contain 2,400mgs of fish oil per serving (
