A study appearing in the Bangladesh Medical Research Council Bulletin (2009; 35(2): 63-8) looked at omega-3 supplementation in patients with rheumatoid arthritis.  Subjects were divided into two groups, with one group receiving indomethacin along with 3g of omega-fatty acids and the second group receiving indomethacin only. The group receiving the supplement along with the medication had improvement in physical function, less pain and improved grip strength when compared to the group receiving only medication.
