New study results published in the professional peer-reviewed Nutrition Journal indicates that fish oil has potential benefits in SLE. The placebo-controlled, randomized clinical study was conducted by several well-known researchers including University of Houston’s Dr. Chandra Mohan, who has received an LRI Novel Research Grant funding in the past.
Investigators noted that fish oil is a widely available oral supplement with minimal risk of side effects. They concluded “Although the study evaluated a small group of patients, there were positive indications in the treatment group for quality of life, fatigue, disease activity, and inflammation biomarkers. Further studies are warranted to confirm our promising findings.”
