There have been extensive studies about the benefits fish oil has on inflammatory diseases. For people living with rheumatoid arthritis, fish oil can help reduce inflammation and stiffness. When you ingest the fish oil, the EPA and DHA block the inflammatory response by converting into anti-inflammatory chemicals, reducing the stiffness and swelling. Combining fish oil with olive oil may enhance the benefits. Fish oil capsules with at least 30 percent EPA and DHA seem to be the most effective. You may also opt to eat up to two servings of fatty fish a week, such as mackerel, salmon, cod, halibut, and tuna.
