Can linseed oil be a natural alternative? This question can neither with still no answer will be, but must be regarded as differentiated by medication and type of rheumatism. So it is undoubtedly so that modern developments in the field of anti-inflammatory drugs have made the rheumatism therapy while maintaining the effectiveness of friendly. However, new risks can arise. So it’s only understandable, if people are looking for alternatives, which are on the one hand effective, should be on the other but also largely free of side effects. Patients with inflammatory or degenerative rheumatic diseases are often very high values of the so-called inflammatory markers.
One of them is the tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNF-alpha). The control and reduction of TNF-alpha is a target of treating rheumatism. This common anti-inflammatory pain relievers (NSAID) and in severe cases called DMARDs (Biologicals) be used. The latter can effectively inhibit TNF-alpha, and are a valuable support for those affected. Unfortunately are NSAIDs such as DMARDs, also not without some serious side effects. So, it’s the question of whether there is a side effect-free effective alternative for lighter cases, or in addition to the drug therapy? In this case, nature has an answer.
Her name is alpha-linolenic acid (ALA). ALA is a naturally occurring plant-based Omega-3 fatty acid, which has proved effective and well tolerated inhibitor of TNF-alpha in various studies. Currently researchers were able to demonstrate that flaxseed oil, which has the highest natural level of ALA also best anti-inflammatory effect. Because pure linseed oil tastes not very good and also easily spoils, there are highly purified linseed oil under the name OmVitum in easy to swallow capsules. Over 300 mg of ALA contained per capsule. Rheumatism-ridden people is thus a complementary way to provide positive impact to influence the inflammatory process in the joint. OmVitum (PZN 4604232) is available in pharmacies, good health centres and available directly from Navitum Pharma under.
