consuming omega-3s had a beneficial effect on rheumatoid arthritis and reduced inflammation.
Fort Lauderdale, FL (PRWEB) January 14, 2013
Researchers have long explored omega-3s extensively, and many studies have shown these essential fatty acids to be helpful in reducing inflammation and pain associated with arthritis. Recently, researchers from Japan Women's University, Tokyo, Japan, assessed whether rheumatoid arthritis activity was affected by omega-3 fatty acids, such as found in Omega XL.
The nutritional status of 37 patients with rheumatoid arthritis(RA) was studied. All the volunteers completed a food frequency questionnaire and kept a daily diary of their food and supplement intake for three days. Researchers analyzed levels of inflammatory markers in serum and saliva and came to the following conclusion: consuming omega-3s had a beneficial effect on rheumatoid arthritis and reduced inflammation.
These results confirm research previously reported from a study published in Rheumatologia, the official journal of the Institute of Rheumatology and the Polish Rheumatological Society. The results of that study demonstrated PCSO-524™, an all natural, patented, omega-3 fish oil extract containing DHA and EPA from the New Zealand green-lipped mussel, found in Omega-XL, may provide more benefits for joint mobility and pain in arthritis patients compared to standard fish oil.
Omega XL is one of only two Omega 3 supplements sold in the world that contains the patented stabilized marine lipid extract PCSO-524™ derived only from the New Zealand green-lipped mussel, with 30 healthy fatty acids including DHA and EPA. Sold in other parts of the world under its sister brand name Lyprinol, Omega XL is manufactured exclusively by Great HealthWorks Inc., and is the most widely available omega-3 fish oil supplement containing the potent PCSO-524™ marine lipid extract.
