Rheumatoid Arthritis:

Rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune disease that is characterized by inflammation of the synovium (lining) of the joints. Over 15 clinical trials and 2 meta-analyses favor the use of omega-3 fish oil in patients with rheumatoid arthritis,. One double-blind placebo-controled trial showed that omega-3 supplementation of 103mg/kg/day decreased the number of tender joints, duration of morning stiffness, pain and global arthritis activity versus placebo. This study suggests that fish oil supplementation may relieve some of the symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis and reduce the need for non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug use.
