Omega-3 Fatty Acids Offer Relief for Early Morning Stiffness and Joint Swelling

Popular non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) used to treat rheumatoid arthritis and other inflammatory conditions, have been pulled from the shelf due to the increase risk of heart disease, strokes and other possible fatal conditions. As patients become more aware of the risks associated with taking NSAIDs, they are looking for more natural anti-inflammatory alternatives that do not have adverse side effects.

A study conducted in the Netherlands was designed to determine the efficacy of omega-3 fatty acids on rheumatoid arthritis. Sixteen patients with rheumatoid arthritis were researched in a double blind, placebo controlled crossover study. The patients continued to use NSAIDs while adding the omega-3 supplementation or placebo to their daily routines. The researchers determined that omega-3 fatty acids provided relief for early morning stiffness and joint swelling, which are common symptoms of this painful inflammatory condition.

Adding a potent omega-3 supplement, like Omega XL®, can be vital in suppressing rheumatoid arthritis symptoms in patients who suffer from this debilitating disease. Seeking natural remedies, with the guidance of medical professionals, can help patients avoid the potentially fatal side effects of NSAIDs while alleviating the pain and affliction associated with rheumatoid arthritis.
