LATEST RESEARCH UPDATE: A 2018 systematic review and meta-analysis found that omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acid (PUFA) consumption significantly improved several markers of rheumatoid arthritis (RA) severity. Twenty Randomized Clinical Trials (RCTs) with 1288 RA patients were included in the analysis. Participants supplemented with omega 3 fish oils for at least 3 months, and all patients maintained their conventional drug treatment throughout. Omega-3 intake significantly improved early morning stiffness, tender joint count, erythrocyte sedimentation rate, and pain scale. For more information check out the PubMed abstract
