Fish Oil Supports Those With Sickle Cell Anemia!
A recent study showed that fish oil supports those with sickle cell anemia. Fish oil decreased the time kids missed school because of the disease. It also reduced their severe anemia and their need for a blood transfusion. This study shows lots of promise for fish oil supporting those with sickle cell anemia but there still needs to be more studying in this area. However, if I had sickle cell anemia I would talk to my doctor about possibly adding fish oil to my daily rutien since fish oil in this study was shown to be safe for people with sickle cell anemia.
