Benefits of fish oils
Omega 3 fish oils help circulation and reduce the risk of clots. There is strong scientific evidence that omega fatty acids reduce cholesterol levels, especially triglycerides. Regular intake reduces the risk of heart attack. Omega 3 supplements are beneficial if you don’t eat a lot of fish.
Reducing joint pain
Omega 3s have an anti-inflammatory effect, which reduces the pain and stiffness associated with inflamed joints and arthritis. Lyprinol is a highly potent anti-arthritic omega 3 supplement available in Whelehans Pharmacy, Mullingar. Trials have shown that Lyprinol has 200 to 300 times more anti-inflammatory potency than other Omega 3 supplements and is as effective as prescription-only medication for inflammatory joint pain.

Omega 3 and its benefits for depression
