One dietary supplement that has gained recent media coverage is Omega-3. This supplement is intended to help the functioning of several different types of cells in the human body and it is a needed nutritional element for healthy mind, nerves, and joints. The human body cannot produce Omega-3 on its own, and because of this people need to find an external source of this element. One of the best natural places to find Omega-3 fatty acids is in oily fishes like salmon. However, if you don’t like to eat fish, or if you live in an area where getting fresh fish is expensive or difficult, there are several Omega-3 dietary supplements available.
One company that produces a gel capsule Omega-3 is Inverness Medical, Inc. This is a Massachusetts pharmaceutical company that can be reached at 1-888-698-5032. You can find their Omega HMJ (heart, mind, joint) at many supermarkets and department stores like Wal-Mart for under $10 a box. Each box contains 30 softgels, good for an entire month. Unlike most other supplements that require you to take several capsules, this product only requires that you take one softgel a day. The ingredients that this product contain include: Omega HMJ concentrated fish oil, Eicosapentaenoic acid, Docosahexaenoic acid, gelatin, USP water, glycerin, natural vitamin E, soy, and fish oil from anchovy, sardine, mackerel, and/or jack mackerel. If you have allergies to any of these ingredients consult your doctor before taking this product. Also if you are on any prescription medication you should consult your physician before taking this product to learn of any possible drug interactions and hazards. You should also make sure that this product is stored in the appropriate environment to ensure the quality of the product. To accomplish this you will need to store your softgels inn a dry location that stays between 59 degrees Fahrenheit and 86 degrees Fahrenheit. This is not a product that you should refrigerate.
I started taking this product several months ago because of a recommendations made by my physician. As a sufferer of arthritis, I noticed that my symptoms where reduced after I started taking this product, and the clicking in my knees stopped. Now I don’t know for sure if it was this supplement that created this relief, but the relief in symptoms does seem to be at least partially caused by the Omega HMJ supplement. Another great aspect of this product is that it is a softgel instead of a pressed powder caplet. This makes it pretty much tasteless and easier to swallow. The only real drawback to this product is that it is a large softgel. If you have problems swallowing you may need to cut up the softgel for easier swallowing. To improve the results created by this product you may want to supplement this product with other multivitamins and supplements that are intended to promote heart health, nerve health, and memory health such as Ginko Biloboa.
