( — June 29, 2018) Orlando, FL — Omega-3 fatty acids are believed to be among the most popular anti-inflammatories nowadays. These acids are even one of the widely used ingredients for supplements, especially those formulated for the use of arthritis sufferers.

Omega-3 fats are believed to be helpful in promoting rheumatoid arthritis (RA) remission. Rheumatoid arthritis is one of the painful and debilitating conditions that impacts millions of people today. While there has not been any cure yet, there are ways to manage the condition.

“Omega-3 fats can be efficiently obtained through supplementation,” said VitaBreeze Supplements spokesperson, Michelle O’Sullivan.

An Australian study published in the Annals of the Rheumatic Diseases revealed that when high doses of fish oil, which contain omega-3 fats, are added to a traditional triple therapy for rheumatoid arthritis, sufferers have a greater chance to achieve positive outcomes.

Rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune, inflammatory disease. It develops when the body mistakenly attacks the joint lining, which can result in pain, inflammation and joint destruction.

According to rheumatologists, disease-modifying anti-rheumatic drugs (DMARDs) are often used to manage symptoms as well as stop joint damage. However, they may not work efficiently for everyone.

In previous studies, the omega-3 fatty acids in fish oil have demonstrated their potential ability to decrease inflammation as well as pain linked with rheumatoid arthritis. The use of fish oil supplements may give RA sufferers an opportunity to reduce their use of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs).

According to Susanna M. Proudman, a clinical Associate Professor at the University of Adelaide in Australia, lead author of the study, they aim at determining whether fish oil in its appropriate anti-inflammatory doses, could offer additional benefits when it comes to disease-modifying capabilities.

The study reveals that the high-dose fish oil group experienced faster remission and tapered off NSAIDs by 12 weeks. Dr. Proudman believes that omega-3 fats have the potential to act like NSAIDs inside the body.

This is good news considering that NSAIDs have been widely used by arthritis sufferers over the years. Unfortunately, their pain-relief effects may not last long and their use has also been associated with side effects. It is reasonable to assume that fish oil supplementation may be a safer alternative to pain medications.

The use of omega-3 fats has not been associated with side effects. As a matter of fact, it has been linked with a myriad of potential health benefits. Many people take fish oil supplements to reduce their risk of developing various conditions. They are also believed to be helpful for individuals with arthritis due to their possible anti-inflammatory effects.
