A report published in "Rheumatologia," a publication of the Institute of Rheumatology and the Polish Rheumatological Society and cited by Reuters, proves the superiority of Omega XL over standard fish oil in treating joint pain. To attain the same effects as Omega XL, large doses of standard fish oil would have to be used over a long period of time. Because this could potentially increase adverse side effects, the report recommends that physicians use Omega XL for reducing joint pain.

According to Wikipedia, Omega XL contains over 30 beneficial fatty acids. One of these is eicosapentaenoic acid. The fatty acid plays an important role in pain relief, and it is also thought to be capable of treating depression and schizophrenia. Omega XL also contains docosahexaenoic acid, a fatty acid that improves attentiveness and visual acuity in pregnant women. Studies cited by Wikipedia have also shown that docosahexaenoic acid improves infant intelligence.

Omega XL is extracted from the New Zealand green-lipped mussel. The mussel is farmed under controlled conditions in New Zealand's Marlborough Sounds. The environment contributes to the unique pain-relieving properties of Omega XL, reports Reuters.
