Just when you thought the benefits of fish oils couldn’t get any better, there is some evidence to suggest that fish oils may benefit certain kinds of arthritis, such as rheumatoid arthritis
Rheumatoid arthritis, briefly, is an autoimmune condition in which the “synovial membrane that protects and lubricates your joints becomes inflamed.”
This is obviously not the case of every type of arthritis, such as osteoarthritis.
In short, does omega 3 and fish oil benefit arthritis?
Only possibly in those cases of inflammation induced pain, but not in some cases such as osteoarthritis where this isn’t the case.
Fish Oil Arthritis
Some of the best fish oils on the market are combined with other inflammatory agents for added effectiveness to counter joint aches and pains.
For example, concentrated extract of green lipped mussel has gained acclaim “worldwide as an effective anti-inflammatory and natural pain reliever and supports connective tissue and joint function to enhance ease of mobility.”
Im summary, choose a high quality pharmaceutical grade, molecularly distilled fish oil supplement….and perhaps look for one that contains other natural anti-inflammatories.
