If you want to reduce your joint pain, you’ll want to take a high-quality omega-3 supplement every single day (choose one high in DHA and EPA).
Omega-3 is one of the best things you can do to counteract and fight against inflammation.
In fact, researchers found that 300 mg of krill oil per day significantly reduced inflammation, pain, stiffness and functional impairment after just 7 days, and even more profoundly after 14 days.
Further, omega-3s may help your heart by lowering your triglycerides, while omega-3s have also been proven to benefit your brain, slowing memory loss and improving conditions like ADHD, inflammatory conditions like arthritis and pain, depression and much more.
Unfortunately, not many foods contain high-levels of Omega-3’s. The only substantial source of omega-3 is freshwater fish like salmon, mackerel and sardines.
However, you need to eat a LOT of them!
Maybe you love sardines and that’s a great option for you. Personally, the thought of eating an entire can of sardines makes me feel sick! (but that’s how much you need to get an adequate amount of Omega-3s)
How Much Omega-3 Is Right for You?
There is no one answer to this question, as how much omega-3s you need depends on your body size, age, health status, the type of omega-3 and more.
There is no set recommended standard dose of omega-3 fats, but some health organizations recommend a daily dose of 250 to 500 milligrams (mg) of EPA and DHA for healthy adults.
Keep in mind this applies to EPA and DHA, not to ALA (alpha-linolenic acid, a type of plant-based omega-3 found in flaxseeds, chia seeds and hemp).
While your body can convert ALA into EPA and DHA, it does so at a very low ratio, and only when sufficient enzymes (that many people are deficient in) are present. This means you’d need to consume far more ALA to reach optimal omega-3 levels (and even then may not reach therapeutic levels).
Even though there is no set recommended standard dose of omega-3 fats, but some health organizations recommend a daily dose of 250 to 500 milligrams (mg) of EPA and DHA for healthy adults.
The American Heart Association recommends people with coronary heart disease consume 1,000 mg of EPA and DHA daily while those with high triglycerides may need 2,000 to 3,000 mg per day
Since it’s so difficult to get 2,000 mg of omega-3’s through your diet, we highly recommend you supplement with a high quality omega-3 supplement.

Stop Pain With These 5 Natural Compounds
If you didn’t get the report already, I’d like to share another FOUR of these methods with you.
It’s all revealed inside a free report called “5 Natural And Powerful Ways To Curb Pain (That Big Pharma Doesn’t Want You To Know)”
Inside you’ll learn more about essential fatty acids, how they treat your pain, and more information about the best, most bioavailable sources.
Plus, you’ll learn four other natural pain-relieving methods (which don’t involve any doctors, needles or injections).
One of these methods is what we consider the “MASTER” pain reliever due to it’s incredible ability to reduce inflammation and act on the same pathways as opiate medication (without the nasty side effects).
