Inflammation and Fish Oil Supplementation

Chronic inflammation in the body has been linked to a variety of illnesses, including heart disease, type 2 diabetes, Alzheimer’s disease and rheumatoid arthritis. Supplementing a healthful, nutrient-rich diet with fish oil may offer some protection against these conditions. According to the Cleveland Clinic, taking daily fish oil supplements is a safe and effective way to decrease triglyceride levels, the risk of a subsequent heart attack, and the pain and inflammation of rheumatoid arthritis.
