Why Exactly Are Fish Oil and Omega 3 Fatty Acids Good for Rheumatoid Arthritis?

There are many ways to incorporate omega-3s into your diet

Both the American Heart Association and the American Dietetic Association state that the best source of omega-3 fatty acids is fish (more specifically, tuna, mackerel, sardines, and herring). Other rich sources of omega-3s include spinach, kale, Brussels sprouts, chia seeds, flaxseeds, and walnuts. Amid other dietary supplements used to treat RA, fish oil is among the strongest supplement that has shown to help reduce inflammation and blood clotting in RA, ease pain, lower the severity of RA, reduce addiction to conventional drugs, reduce the side effects of conventional painkillers, as well as lower the complications associated with RA. 

Try this: Roast halved Brussels sprouts with olive oil, salt, and pepper on 450 degrees for 10 minutes. While you wait, rinse and dry a whole salmon filet. Score the skin, sprinkle with salt and pepper and rub with olive oil. Put the oven to broil. Place salmon skin side-up on a pan and broil for 10 minutes. Portion and serve!
