How do omega-3 fatty acids help knee osteoarthritis?

ANSWER

Omega-3s may help relieve your joint pain and decrease morning stiffness by lowering inflammation in your body.

One easy way to add them to your diet is to eat two 3-ounce servings of fatty fish each week. Some of the best sources of omega-3s are trout, salmon, mackerel, herring, tuna, and sardines.
