Extensive research show that Omega-3 supplementation with DHA/EPA from fish oil help reduce inflammation and associated arthritis pains, rheumatoid arthritis symptoms and allow patients to reduce their dependence on NSAIDs and corticosteroids. Various scientific clinical studies have established that a dose of 2.6 g/day or more of n-3 fatty acid supplementation (DHA+EPA) generally reduce the symptoms of Rheumatoid Arthritis after about 12 weeks; consuming a larger dose will reduce this latency period*.Additional nutrients supported by various clinical studies include Glucosamine, Chondroitin, Green-Lipid Mussel Extract (GLME such as in Lyprinol), Collagen (UC-II, Biocell Collagen) and Hyaluronic Acid (Joint Fluid). Additional nutritional oils include GLA from Borage oil or similar sources.
