Fish Oil helps Rheumatism Naturally

Researchers say that at least 2.7g of the EPA component found in fish oils is needed to provide an anti-inflammatory effect for rheumatoid arthritis. Less than 2.7g isn’t effective. And the effect takes 2-3 months to take effect. The authors of this study admonish against across-the-board use of non steroidal anti-inflammatory drug therapy (NSAIDS) because of increased cardiovascular risks associated with their use.

To get the dose recommended by these authors, that would be a total of 4g as formulated by Nutriwest, which is about 8 capsules per day. The authors also advise AGAINST cod liver oil, but rather oil from the flesh of the fish. Cod liver tends to concentrate too much vitamin A and D at these doses. Taking a liquid is recommended at these doses (Nutriwest carries the same formula in a bottle.)

Have two shot glasses of juice. Pour the fish oil in the top of one of them and don’t stir. Drink the fishy one first and sip the 2nd juice shot slowly to get the juice off the lips. Take with solid food meal.
