If you haven’t heard about omega-3 fatty acids, it’s time to pay attention to this compound that can help fight inflammation wherever it’s causing trouble in the human body. Eating foods or taking supplements with omega-3 fatty acids has been shown to help fight heart disease, improve brain functionality, and, yes, limit pain associated with arthritis.
So, what foods contain omega-3 fatty acids? Perhaps the most popular omega-3 food is salmon, which contains an ample amount of the compound. But that’s not all: omega-3 fatty acids can also be found in tuna, trout, and mackerel. Not a fan of fish? Then look to flaxseeds, which are often found in whole grain breads.
