Fish Oil Fails to Help MS

A Norweigian randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial has found fish oil supplements of no help in treating patients with relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis (MS). The serum fatty acid levels in those receiving the fish oil supplements increased, yet at 6, 9, and 24 months there were no differences as measured by MRI disease activity between groups. Quality of life scores, fatigue, and functionality did not differ either.

PositiveTip: A wholesome, healthful diet and lifestyle combined with standard treatments is probably the best option for those with MS.
