Fish Oil for Joint, Heart and Brain Health

Why is Fish Oil Quality So Important?

It is important to ensure that the fish oil you are taking is clean and pure.

Ethical Nutrients fish oil is sourced from smaller fish such as sardines and anchovies. Being lower down the food chain, these fish typically have lower levels of heavy metals, such as mercury, and the environmental pollutant, dioxin. Ethical Nutrients tests every batch of fish oil for heavy metals, environmental pollutants and oxidation – to ensure that Ethical Nutrients fish oils meet a very high standard.

Joint Health and Fish Oil

Many people with mild arthritis struggle to open lids on jars, or even walk short distances without experiencing debilitating pain. Fish oil has been shown in many research studies to help with the pain of mild arthritis. The essential fatty acids found in fish oil may help relieve joint inflammation which is one of the key reasons you experience mild arthritic pain. Arthritis Australia1 recommends 2.7 g of omega-3 essential fatty acids from fish oil to help reduce joint inflammation associated with mild arthritis 2. Ethical Nutrients Hi-Strength Liquid Fish Oil provides 2.7 g of omega-3 in each teaspoon, which may help to relieve the symptoms of mild arthritis, increase joint mobility and relieve mild arthritic pain. Fish oil acts like a natural lubricant for your joints and may help you move around more freely with less stiffness. Taken long term, fish oil may help you enjoy a more active life.
