Brushing away dental disease with omega-3?
Well, that’s according to a new study from Japan…and we must admit that we couldn’t agree more.
You see, in addition to the risk of losing teeth, dental diseases are usually the result of bacteria-triggered inflammatory host responses that cause destruction of alveolar bone and periodontal connective tissue. Dental diseases have also been implicated has risk factors for cardiovascular disease.
So where does omega-3 come into play?
In brief…anti-inflammatory properties. Omega-3 fatty acids have been shown to inhibit inflammatory mediators and our Omega 3 / DHA Fish Oil is proven to have more than two and a half times** the anti-inflammatory properties of other fish oils.
