Eating More Fish May Help Ease Symptoms of Rheumatoid Arthritis

Rheumatoid arthritis is characterized by painful inflammation of the joints. A recent study suggests that eating fish two times per week may help ease painful symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis.

Participants in the study included 176 people with rheumatoid arthritis. All of the participants filled out a food frequency questionnaire, which assessed their fish consumption over the previous year.

After examining the data, the researchers determined that people who ate fish twice per week had lower disease activity — including swollen and tender joint counts — than those who never ate fish or ate it less than once a month.

Researchers from Brigham and Women's Hospital and Harvard Medical School led the study. It was published online ahead of print on June 21, 2017, in Arthritis Care & Research.

More and more research is showing that fish consumption is extremely important to maintaining good health, especially as we age. Many of these studies have linked the positive health benefits of fish to their omega-3 fatty acid content. Omega-3 fatty acids have been associated with benefits ranging from improved heart health, better moods, improved joint mobility, and aiding your immune system.

If you don’t like the taste of fish or are concerned about the mercury levels present in some fish, try adding a high quality supplement to your daily routine. Make sure, however, that your supplement has been tested for potency and purity in order to get the most out investment.
