Omega-3 Fish Oil is a rich source of docosahexaenoic acid (18% DHA) and eicosapentaenoic acid (27% EPA), essential fatty acids which play an important role in the metabolism of prostaglandins involved in inflammation. Research has been carried out into the benefits of omega-3 fatty acids taken in conjunction with Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs (NSAIDs - the most commonly used method of pain relief for joint discomfort) and found to be of benefit in joint discomfort. Since Jointace® is a 100% nutritional formulation, it can be taken alongside NSAIDs and other treatments if desired.

Is Vitabiotics Jointace® Omega-3 suitable for vegetarians?
No. Jointace Omega-3 capsules are not suitable for vegetarians as they contain fish oil in pharmaceutical grade gelatin from bovine source. Adults can obtain DHA and EPA indirectly through the conversion of the essential fatty acid alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), present in vegetable oils such as linseed but this process is very inefficient. Jointace Omega-3 capsules contains fish oil as it provides a much more reliable, direct source of DHA, EPA and ALA.
