Jason Carter, PhD, chair of kinesiology and integrative physiology, Michigan Technology University, Houghton found that adults that had taken a daily dose of fish oil or olive oil for two months, then their responses to a mildly stressful situation measured. The result was those that had taken fish oil showed less heart-rate and nerve response to stress than those who had taken olive oil, possibly due to the omega-3 fatty acids in fish oil. If you’re under stress: talk to your doctor about taking a daily fish oil supplement. However it is important to mention any blood thinners or other medications you take because fish oil may interact with them.

The Dr.’s at South Orange Chiropractic Center are well versed on the appropriate amount of fish oils necessary to deliver a therapeutic effect. Fish oils/ omega 3’s are also a benefit for the cardiovascular and musculoskeletal systems as well as eye and brain function. Visit our website at www.SouthOrangeChiropractic.com.
