It is vital that the body is capable of triggering an inflammation against an infection or damage. However, when this process is misdirected or prolonged it can cause adverse health effects. Similar processes are seen in rheumatic artritis, asthma, or inflammatory bowel disease. 

Omega-3 fatty acids and carotenoids use anti-inflammatory effects in the later stadium of inflammation. They prevent further activation of certain immune cells and by reducing the production of pro-inflammatory mediators. (19) (20) (21) Making sure to adequately take high-quality Omega-3 fatty acids and Astaxanthine can lead to a reduction of severity of these chronic inflammations, seen in certain chronic disease (22) (23) (24) (25) (26). 

Artritis - Studies have shown that within 3-4 months Omega-3 fatty acids can lead to a lesser level of joint pain, duration of morning stiffness, amount of painful joints (27

Asthma - Supplementation of Omega 3 fatty acids for children showed a reduced risk of developing asthma and a reduced need for medicine for asthma patients (28) (29). 

Neuroinflammation (for example: Alzheimer, Parkinson) - When ingested, the Omega-3 fatty acids are primarily incorporated in the brain. This could decrease the amount of neuroinflammation. Diets rich in Omega-3 fatty acids have the potential to improve cognitive functioning and to lower the risk of dementia, Alzheimer's or Parkinson's disease (30) (31) (32). An increased intake of Omega-3 fatty acids may increase the efficiency of anti-inflammatory medications, and perhaps reduce the need for conventional medicine (33).
