Fish oil has been said to help a wide range of diseases, including Alzheimer’s and arthritis. A study at Queensland University aims to discover the benefits that fish oil may provide for those who suffer from kidney disease.
Dietitian Rachel Zabel explained that fish oil, taken daily, may decrease inflammation, which is a common symptom for those with kidney disease.
“Research shows that patients with kidney disease on dialysis experience a range of complications thought to relate to chronic inflammation,” she continued. “They can have poor nutritional status, disturbed appetite and a lower quality of life.” With the incidence of chronic kidney problems on the rise, it is more important than ever to find effective methods of treatment.
Those looking to increase their fish oil intake may want to consider taking dietary supplements, such as those provided by Dr. Newton’s Naturals.
Omegakrill from Dr. Newton’s Naturals contains three times more Omega-3 fatty acids as fish oil, and harvesting Arctic krill is far more sustainable than fish. Benefits may include increased bone health, healthier cholesterol levels and a reduced risk of coronary disease.
