Rheumatoid arthritis

Rheumatoid arthritis is an inflammatory form of arthritis. There are a number of dietary factors which cause this inflammation to increase - including gluten, sugar, processed foods.

Rheumatoid arthritis is quite different from osteoarthritis. Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) is an inflammatory form of arthritis which can occur at any age. The body's immune system starts to attack its own tissues (autoimmune response), but no definite conclusions have as yet been reached as to why.

Typically the small joints are affected first; that is, the joints of the fingers and the toes. They may become deformed and this inflammatory response can also lead to 'flare-ups' which makes the joints swell and parts of the body to ache. Uncontrolled rheumatoid arthritis is a cause of bone erosion. Fatigue is also a key symptom of Rheumatoid Arthritis.

If you have RA, you may like to buy organic krill oil to supplement along with AminoBoosters or AminoPure+ as there is strong evidence of krill oil being effective for RA - see https://examine.com/supplements/Krill+Oil. Good quality organic krill oil is not expensive and can be taken alongside AminoBoosters or AminoPure+.

Omega-3 fatty acids, the primary ingredient found in fish oil, are healthy fats that your body needs to perform a number of important functions. Fish high in omega-3 includes herring, mackerel, and tuna.

There’s been substantial evidence that suggests omega-3 fatty acids may prevent chronic inflammation and ease symptoms associated with arthritis pain. In one study, patients showed significant improvement from baseline joint tenderness and duration of morning stiffness over 26 to 30 weeks. In some instances, omega-3 fatty acids may eliminate the need for continuous NSAIDS use.

People who are taking anticoagulants should discuss using fish oil supplements with their doctor.

Adopting a low-inflammation diet is important. Eating "Vegeo" - a combination of vegan and paleo - means largely plant-based food and avoiding gluten, sugar and processed food. This can have a dramatic impact on your wellbeing.
