benefits for arthritis arthritis is a generic term that describes over 100
different medical conditions all of these conditions will cause inflammation
in the musculoskeletal system at this point a definitive cause for the
development of most of these arthritic conditions is not been found however
researchers and doctors do have specific treatment protocols which help
individuals to decrease pain inflammation and improve their function
one of the treatments which individuals and physicians have experimented with
are fish oil supplements omega-3 fatty acids are found in fatty fish both
freshwater and saltwater varieties research over the past decade has found
that both omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids are considered essential this
means there are essential to human health and cannot be made in the body
for this reason they must be obtained from the food together they play a
crucial role in brain function as well as normal growth and development
there has been data from a few randomized double controlled studies
that have demonstrated a beneficial effect to individuals who suffer from
rheumatoid arthritis and use a dietary fish oil supplements in many of these
studies the patients were able to decrease the amount of other medications
they use in order to control or inflammation and in one study the
researchers found that combining fish oil with olive oil could also enhance

fatty acids from fish oil will decrease the inflammatory process in the body and
therefore cause reduced pain and swelling in individuals who suffer from
some forms of arthritis there has also not been any evidence that it reduces
the progression of the disease omega-3 fatty acids also lowered triglycerides

of fish oil which is used for the supplements is important research has

that omega-3 fatty acids and fish oil will impact their clotting times
pregnant women should not take these supplements because of the danger of
mercury poisoning to the baby as with all supplements that you may consider in
order to reduce the pain and inflammation from your arthritis you
must consult with your primary care physician or rheumatologist while they
may be dietary supplements they are still chemicals which you are putting
into your body and can cause either side effects or interactions with other
medications you are already taking your rheumatologist will be able to help you
with these questions and your pharmacist will be able to tell you if there is any
drug interactions with any medications you’re currently on arthritis can be a
seriously debilitating disease the good news is that recent research has
discovered there are excellent natural products including omega-3 fish oils
