Inflammation. A Very Likely Suspect in Chronic Pain
October 9th, 2018
Inflammation is one of the biggest sources of pain in our lives. Whether it’s back pain, knee pain, or arthritis pain, swelling in the area compresses on those nerves and causes pain. Reducing inflammation has the effect of reducing almost all kinds of pain, including the most commonly suffered kinds of pain. When swelling presses on the nerves, it also causes stress in your muscles, which can become, tight, tense, and have decreased blood flow.
“Simply put, inflammation is not natural. Your body’s natural state of being is not an inflamed one.” In our most recent blog, we outline all the ways inflammation in your body might be the cause of a great deal of your pain and how you can treat it naturally. Many of the medications used to treat pain and inflammation have unwanted side effects, which supplements don’t have. Also, using Omega-3 fatty acid supplements has been shown to be even more effective than some of the leading inflammation medications with none of the dangerous side effect. NSAID drugs like Ibuprofen or Naproxen can often lead to digestive tract problems including bleeding, ulcers, and some cancer have even been shown to be related to long-term NSAID use. Before starting any course of treatment for longer than 2 weeks, call your doctor.
Omega 3 fatty acids are often found in food, and including them in your diet can’t be discounted. For maximum benefit, you should try to include omega-3’s in your regular weekly diet. However, we know it can be hard to consume a diet that is high in fish every day. Likewise, it may be hard to take regular fish oil every day. Luckily, Omega XL does not smell or taste like fish.
Omega XL has a special extraction formula allows for protein removal, which makes their product the only kind like it on the market. Not only does this curtail the smell, but it also makes the product safe for people with fish and seafood allergies. Some people may want to enjoy the benefit of Omega-3’s, but are stuck taking plant-based ALA instead of the more proven effective DHA and EPA. Because Omega XL is safe for people with seafood allergies, people can enjoy more proven benefits with not only DHA and EPA, but a patented 22 other healthy, free fatty acids that help keep your heart healthy and reduce inflammation.
