Fighting Addiction? Omega-3s Can Help

By Res-Q editor September 1, 2016 No comments

Stress makes many people reach for a drink, which all too easily turns into three drinks…and sometimes three more after that. When alcohol doesn’t cut it, it’s not uncommon to seek something else, whether it’s prescription pain pills from a long-ago surgery or recreational drugs from a friend who promises a quick escape from the realities of life. 

Unfortunately, numbing the pain, whether with alcohol or drugs, often creates a menacing cycle of addiction. It also depletes your body of nutrients, which fuels the cycle of addiction and further damages your health. Thankfully there is promising research that shows omega-3s can help fight addiction and boost your health at the same time.
