Omega-3 anti-inflammatories have been shown to reduce the pain and inflammation in arthritis. We manufacture our own brand of Knee Center Omega-3, which is superior to most store-bought brands or Internet brands because of several reasons. Knee Center Omega-3 is purified, and all harmful chemicals have been removed during the molecular distillation of the fish oil. It is as pure as Lovaza, which is basically a prescription fish oil sold for many times the price of Knee Center Omega-3. Knee Center Omega-3 also has a thicker capsule; so there is no "fish burp." We also encourage people to freeze Knee Center Omega-3 and take two capsules in the morning and two capsules in the evening of frozen Omega-3 further reducing the chance of any unpleasant after taste. Knee Center Omega-3 is concentrated and provides more of the essential ingredients than most store-boughE brands; so, therefore, basically the capsules are double-strength.
The only side-effect of Omega-3 may be an increase in bleeding time; so if you are on Coumadin or another blood thinner, sometimes it pays to check with your family doctor before taking them; so it is important to let Dr. Cooper know what other medications you are taking. Personally, I have found that supplementing arthritis treatment with 4,000 mg. of Omega-3 per day is an inexpensive way to reduce the pain and inflammation that goes along with arthritis.
