People who suffer from joint pain know how uncomfortable standing, sitting or any physical activity can be. Many sufferers are forced to consistently take non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) and prescription medications.
Long-term use of these drugs have shown the potential for serious side effects and many have already been removed from the market because of these issues. According to researchers, more than 100,000 people in the United States are hospitalized and nearly 20,000 patients die annually of complications related to the use of NSAIDs for the treatment of pain.
Pain associated with osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis has no simple antidote. Unlike anti-inflammatory drugs commonly recommended for arthritis, omega-3 EPA and DHA do more than mask painful symptoms. Harvard Medical School reports the use of omega-3 EPA and DHA as an effective tool for lessening the symptoms of arthritis: “It is important for patients to understand that less-toxic alternatives to anti-inflammatories are available.”
EPA and DHA are natural anti-inflammatories, which can reduce the need for NSAIDs, while reducing the risk for cardiovascular disease. In a review from Arthritis Research and Therapy, a collective study reported that a daily dose of anti-inflammatory omega-3 EPA and DHA of 2-3 grams is a safe and effective tool for reducing the symptoms of osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis.
