Day 58—Something’s Fishy January 12, 2010

Fish oil fights inflammation, so relieves arthritis.

For many of us pre-seniors,   😉   joint pain and inflammation—aka arthritis—keeps us from exercising as much as we need or would like to. Regardless of where the pain resides—knees, hips, shoulders or wherever—it can drag us down and prevent us from keeping our health and fitness commitments.

It’s been known that fish oil contains an ingredient—DHA—that the body converts into Resolvin D2, which reduces inflammation. And, it seems, a little fish oil goes a long way.

Read the report at http://www.sparkpeople.com/resource/health_news_detail.asp?health_day=632450 . And stock up on that fish oil (Be sure to get the enteric coated variety, which keeps “fish oil breath” at bay).
