3 Ways Fish Oil Helps Get Rid of Gout

This blog is dedicated to finding natural gout cures you can use to help you overcome painful attacks. One of the best ways to do this is to take a supplement of fish oil. Fish oil is a great natural remedy for gout pain for a variety of reasons.

Today, we will discuss 3 of them.

Fish oil reduces swelling

Fish oil has been found to be as effective as ibuprofen and aleve for reducing swelling in joints. Most of gout pain comes from the swelling in your joints. By reducing this swelling, you can reduce your painful gout symptoms.

Fish oil is great for your heart

Fish oil has long been noted to be beneficial in helping prevent or slow down heart disease. I personally used a fish oil supplement every day long before I found out it can help with gout.

By increasing the health of your heart, you will be more likely to exercise more often and reduce your weight. Seeing how being overweight is a major problem among gout patients, fish oil can be beneficial. Also, gout sufferers are at a higher risk of heart disease due to usually being overweight.

I highly recommend that you don't go to just any store and get fish oil. Lower grade fish oil can contain metals so you will want to get a higher grade distilled fish oil that gets the metals out of the oil.

As for whether you should take a liquid versus capsule it is a personal choice. I personally take a capsule. If you wish to take the liquid but are not thrilled with sucking down the oil, Carlson's has a high quality fish oil that has lemon flavoring added to it to help you get it down.

A great resource for other useful supplements that help with reducing swelling can be found at alternative cures. Terry has a great blog on alternative methods of curing diseases and has a link on the post to a place you can get high quality health supplements.


Fish Oil helps heal damaged joints

Again, gout patients tend to be overweight and the excess weight, plus the multiple episodes of gout attacks can destroy your joints.

Fish oil has been found to help heal damaged joints which will enable you to exercise and lose weight. Be sure to see your physician before you start exercising.

Give fish oil a try. I use it every day.

Until later,

Thanks for the mention Tom. Sorry for the slow response - busy times over here!

I just posted another gout epic on alt-cures talking about bicarbonate of soda as a potential treatment, by the way!
