I read a new study today that says eating fish and taking fish oil may reduce the risk, progression and symptons of MS. (https://www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/321075.php)
"Omega-3 PUFAs have been shown to be neuroprotective during aging and suppress MS-related inflammation through multiple mechanisms in cell cultures and animal models. This provides at least two biologically plausible mechanisms whereby higher omega-3 PUFA intake and biosynthesis could protect against development of MS."
- Dr. Annette Langer-Gould
Does anyone take fish oil and have you noticed any effects?
I have heard of fish and omega-3s helping protect nerves, heart and brain. My doctor recommended eating fatty fish 2 times per week or fish oil pills if that wasn't reasonable.
He also suggested taking a test to find out what my actual levels were instead of guessing. It was easy and nice to know instead of just hoping the "snake" oil was working.
Here's the information we have about fish oil/Omega 3s and MS: Omega-3
