Omega-3 – Type 2 Diabetes

A recent study as published in the Journal of Nutrition & Intermediary Metabolism supports the use of dietary omega-3 in the management of Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus. Type 2 Diabetes is an increasing health concern and management is best achieved under the guidance of a CAM Practitioner where a person’s individualised needs can be monitored and met.

Omega-3 has anti-inflammatory, anti-thrombotic and anti-lipidemic properties that may be beneficial in the management of Type 2 Diabetes and its complications. Norsan Omega-3 vegan oil is a popular supplement. Ideally a CAM Provider can evaluate people’s health requirements for and create a helpful strategy to achieve wellness goals.
