RA is a condition that far too many people deal with firsthand. Any one of those people will tell you that it is a battle they’d rather not endure, but since they’re left with few other options, they look for ways to stop the pain. New studies suggest that it could be seafood that helps stop the aches and pains associated with RA. Perhaps it is time that you got a little fishy. What do you need to know about this new correlation?
- Fish consumption has been noted to have many beneficial health effects and our findings may give patients with rheumatoid arthritis a strong reason to increase fish consumption
- The research showed that people with RA who consumed fish at least two times per week had lower disease activity compared with individuals who ate fish once per month or less.
- Findings suggest that higher intake of fish may be associated with lower disease activity in rheumatoid arthritis patients,” said the authors of the study in a public joint statement
“A recent study from Brigham and Women’s Hospital, and Harvard Medical School, concluded that the consumption of fish may correlate with lower disease activity in people living with rheumatoid arthritis”
