Fish oil and aspirin for arthritis cure

Washington, Feb 25, 2013, PTI:

A combination of fish oil and aspirin could be the key to beating a host of devastating chronic diseases including arthritis, a new breakthrough study has found.

Researchers found that the two work together to combat the inflammation responsible for a host of illnesses, including heart disease, cancer and arthritis. Experts have always touted the health benefits of low-dose aspirin and omega-3 fatty acids found in foods like flax seeds and salmon, but the detailed mechanisms involved in their effects were not fully known. Now a new study  shows that aspirin helps trigger the production of molecules called resolvins that are naturally made by the body from omega-3 fatty acids.

These resolvins shut off the inflammation that underlies destructive conditions such as inflammatory lung disease, heart disease, and arthritis.
