Omega 3's to Reduce Inflammation

Video by Dr. Erik Waldeland

This green smoothie is a refreshing and nutritious blend that effortlessly combines the sweetness of strawberries and bananas with the vitality of leafy greens. This recipe not only satisfies taste buds but also provides a rich source of essential nutrients. Packed with vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants, this vibrant drink is an ideal choice for a wholesome start to the day or a revitalizing midday pick-me-up. The key ingredient, which we add to almost all our smoothies, is the Innate Choice Omega-3.  This essential nutrient comes with a laundry list of benefits ranging from pain relief, decreased inflammation, cardiovascular health, and much more.

As for the omega-3 benefits for pain, the attached research article highlighted the following insights: “Omega-3 fatty acids have been shown to have potential anti-inflammatory effects” and “A diet rich in omega-3 fatty acids may be beneficial in the management of chronic pain.” These findings underline the potential role of omega-3 fatty acids in alleviating inflammatory pain and suggest their significance in managing chronic pain conditions.

When it comes to how we approach pain, our Chiro Health clinics always address the foods and nutrients that our patients consume for this exact reason.  We need to ensure the body has the ability to health from the inside out, because this is important for not only getting out of pain but staying out of pain.

Ingredients
  • One handful of Spinach
  • 1/2 Banana
  • 5 Strawberries, frozen
  • 2 Tsp Innate Choice Omega 3’s A+
  • 1 cup of water

Blend until smooth and enjoy!
