OmegaPure PRM: The Omega-3 Advantage with Specialized Pro-Resolving Mediators (SPMs)

Omega-3 fatty acids, particularly EPA and DHA, have been extensively studied for their anti-inflammatory properties. But OmegaPure PRM by Xymogen goes beyond just EPA and DHA. It’s formulated with a specific 3:2 EPA to DHA ratio and includes additional benefits thanks to specialized pro-resolving mediators (SPMs).

Think of SPMs as the body’s natural “off switch” for inflammation. These specialized molecules are derived from EPA and DHA and actively promote the resolution of inflammation, helping your body return to a balanced state after injury or stress.

A review published in the National Institutes of Health database suggests that omega-3 fatty acid supplements may be effective in reducing pain and improving joint function in people with osteoarthritis.

Additionally, OmegaPure PRM by Xymogen is:

  • High-quality fish oil with molecular distillation for purity.

  • Formulated with a 3:2 EPA to DHA ratio for optimal pain relief benefits.

  • Minimizes potential fishy aftertaste.

Turmeric Forte: Unlocking the Full Potential of Curcumin

Turmeric, a vibrant yellow spice, has been used for centuries for its anti-inflammatory and pain-relieving properties. The active compound responsible for these benefits is curcumin. However, curcumin has a major drawback – it’s poorly absorbed by the body.

Here’s where MediHerb’s Turmeric Forte shines:

  • Enhanced Absorption: Turmeric Forte utilizes a proprietary whole-food blend that includes turmeric root and other synergistic botanicals. This unique combination helps improve curcumin absorption, maximizing its potential benefits.


  • Standardized Extract: Unlike some turmeric supplements, Turmeric Forte features a standardized curcumin extract. This ensures consistent potency and delivery of the key pain-relieving curcuminoids.


  • Quality & Purity: MediHerb/Standard Process prioritizes quality and purity in their products. Turmeric Forte undergoes rigorous testing to ensure it’s free from contaminants and meets the highest quality standards.


A study published in the journal Arthritis Research & Therapy found that curcumin may be as effective as certain pain medications for managing osteoarthritis knee pain.

Other Pain Relieving Modalities:

Acupuncture: Rebalancing Your Body’s Energy Flow

Acupuncture is a cornerstone of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) and has been practiced for thousands of years. By inserting thin needles into specific acupoints on the body, acupuncture aims to restore balance within the body’s energy flow, known as Qi. This can promote pain relief, improve circulation, and reduce inflammation.

Ear Seeds: Tiny Allies for Big Results

Ear seeds are small adhesive seeds placed on specific acupressure points on the ear. They can be a valuable addition to your pain management plan by:

  • Calming the Sympathetic Nervous System: Ear seeds can help activate the parasympathetic nervous system, promoting relaxation and reducing stress, which can exacerbate pain perception.

  • Promoting Pain Relief: Studies suggest that ear seed acupressure may be effective in managing pain conditions such as migraines and low back pain.

Pain Relief Patches: Targeted Herbal Support

Our pain relief patches feature a blend of powerful TCM herbs formulated to address specific types of pain. These patches are applied directly to the affected area for targeted and sustained relief. Pick some up at your next acupuncture appointment!
