Before we dive into their potential influence on pain, let's briefly discuss what Omega-3s are.
Omega-3 fatty acids are a type of polyunsaturated fat that the body cannot produce on its own, making them essential to obtain from our diet.
The three primary Omega-3 fatty acids are:
Eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA)
Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA)
Alpha-linolenic acid (ALA)
These fatty acids have a myriad of physiological roles, including involvement in inflammation reduction, promoting brain health, and supporting cardiovascular function.
