(Health-NewsWire.Net, October 14, 2015 ) Orlando, FL -- Arthritis is one of the painful conditions that causes immobility, and even disability. In the United States and many parts of the world, people are suffering from the consequences of having the condition. The good news is that there seems to be a potential natural alternative that can change the lives of sufferers for the better.
Fish oil is believed to be a powerful natural remedy for arthritis. Fish oil can be obtained from consuming fish such as herring, salmon, mackerel, tuna, cod and halibut. However, consumers can also take advantage of the fish oil supplements available nowadays.
There has been a widespread belief that fish oil can significantly help improve the condition of individuals who suffer from rheumatoid arthritis and other ailments such as depression, psoriasis, lupus, and Raynaud's phenomenon. It is believed to help reduce inflammation as well as morning stiffness. According to some studies, this natural ingredient can also be helpful for inhibiting the development of rheumatoid arthritis and improving brain function.
"The therapeutic benefits of fish oil are believed to come from its omega-3 fatty acids," said VitaBreeze Supplements spokesperson, Michelle O'Sullivan.
There have been numerous claims about the health benefits offered by omega-3 fatty acids. These claims are also supported by some scientific research studies, and this is why the use of fish oil has continually been increasing over the years.
The omega-3 fats in fish oil, particularly EPA and DHA, are believed to be effective for blocking inflammatory cytokines and prostaglandins. They are converted by the body to become resolvins, which are powerful anti-inflammatory chemicals.
Both EPA and DHA have been widely studied for inflammatory conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis, depression, heart disease, lupus, and Raynaud's syndrome. In a meta-analysis published in the Archives of Medical Research in July 2012, it was found that fish oil has the ability to significantly reduce joint tenderness and stiffness in individuals with rheumatoid arthritis. It is also believed to help reduce or even eliminate the need for NSAID use. Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, or NSAIDs, are typically used by arthritis sufferers to achieve pain relief.
Preliminary studies also support the finding of the meta-analysis, and revealed that fish oil may also have similar effects on osteoarthritis. In 2005, a study was conducted by the Londrina State University involving people with rheumatoid arthritis. Published in the Nutrition journal, it was found that fish oil combined with olive oil provided enhanced positive effects on the condition of the participants. Today, fish oil supplements are widely available in the market, and are believed to be a safer, more effective, and more inexpensive remedy for arthritic conditions (amazon.com/Omega-Fish-Oil-Supplement-Softgels/dp/B00O8NS20K).
