Today’s topic:
Joint Health – Fish Oils

Fish oils promote joint flexibility and ease of motion. In a study published recently in Nutrition, supplementation with 3000 mg of fish oils daily promoted healthy joint movement and flexibility in a group of middle-aged men.2 This is just one example of the evidence that confirms the benefits that fish oils can provide to your joints. Recently, a meta-analysis of clinical studies concluded that consumption of fish oils led to the promotion of feelings of comfort and ease in the joints of individuals supplementing with them.3 Fish oils play a vital role in supporting the recovery of joint comfort and function associated with everyday activities.
