Fish Oil Capsules May Improve Rheumatoid Arthritis

Rheumatoid arthritis is an extremely painful and disabling form of arthritis affecting many joints at once. Unfortunately, there is no cure for this condition, although there are ways someone can ease their pain. In this recent clinical trial performed by the Rheumatology Unit at Royal Adelaide Hospital and the University of Adelaide in Australia, patients who suffered from a recent onset of rheumatoid arthritis had an increased rate of remission (total absence of symptoms) and a lower rate of failure by the drugs used to treat the disease if on a high dosage of fish oil in capsules.

The randomized trial compared the effects of high-doses of fish oils versus low-doses and found that with every measurable increase in the level of fish oils in the plasma there was an accompanying 12% increase in the probability of remission anytime during the study. The study is published online in the British Journal of Nutrition on August 18, 2015.

Fish Oil Benefits

The oils from fatty fish supply amazing health benefits. It’s true – fish is “brain food”. The key component in fish oil is their EPA-DHA (Omega-3) fatty acid content. Fish oils benefit every aspect of brain health, from mood regulation all the way to possible prevention of severe brain problems like stroke and dementia. They also support heart and circulation health, protect your vision, help maintain the digestive tract, and offer support for the kidneys, joints, lungs, and essentially every other tissue in your body. They improve and control immune function, support detoxification, adjust blood pressure and heart rate, and maintain lung function. In short, you cannot do without them – at least not for long.

Fish oils have been shown to provide excellent support for Brain Health, as well. Read Jerry Hickey, R. Ph’s, “Fish Oil Capsules: Ancient Food for the Modern Brain” by clicking here!
