A few studies have found that there may be evidence to suggest regular extra virgin olive oil consumption may help in the maintenance of rheumatoid arthritis. One found that many symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis were improved with fish oil and olive oil supplementation. This disease is extremely painful and involves the immune system of a person attacking its health cells (mainly in the body joints). Antioxidants are known to help with reduction in inflammation throughout the body. Future research may find more evidence to suggest extra virgin olive oil significantly helps those who suffer from rheumatoid arthritis.
