Herbs, Omega-3's Can Save Millions in Healthcare

A study has found that herbal preparations and omega-3 fats are effective treatments against an array of illnesses including osteoarthritis, heart disease and depression. The Australian study estimated that their use could save that country more than $220 million every year.

The researchers found omega-3’s helped protect against heart disease, and that St John’s wort alone could save $50 million a year as a replacement for antidepressants.

According to NutraIngredients:

“An osteoarthritis herbal blend called Phytodolor was highlighted as having the potential to save $178 million yearly if those taking non-steroidal anti inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) switch to it.”
