Krill Oil and Arthritis Pain

One of the newest oils available OTC is Krill oil. It appears to have the same heart healthy effects as fish oil, plus it might help your arthritis.

According to the “Journal of the American College of Nutrition,” Feb. 2007, krill oil “at a daily dose of 300 mg significantly inhibits inflammation and reduces arthritic symptoms within a short treatment period of 7 and 14 days.” Here’s also what they said, “After 7 days of treatment NKO™, reduced pain scores by 28.9% (p = 0.050), reduced stiffness by 20.3% (p = 0.001) and reduced functional impairment by 22.8%”

Also, according to Consumer Reports on Health, March 2012, krill oil is just as good as fish oil for heart health.

That’s good enough for me to give it a try.

Check with your doctor of course to see if there might be any problem with you taking these.

I found them at Costco for $18 for 90 pills.
