Curcumin is anti inflammatory. Bosweilia tells your immune system not to attack your Arthritis. The two work well together.

Thanks Joe, I'm taking a combo of Boswellia and Curcumin from NOW but it's not enough.

High dose fish-oil. I've had slightly swollen salivary glands and joints in feet for few months so I'm going to try it. 3-5 grams of EPA+DHA and 1g curcumin with hydroxychloroquine.

Meaningful anti-inflammatory effect starts from 2-3 grams of combined EPA and DHA per day and even higher amounts are used in studies. There is evidence that fish-oil may be beneficial especially for people with RA and probably other inflammatory diseases. Decreases in pro-inflammatory cytokines, swollen/tender joints and pain etc. The effect is probably small though.

I also take a good fish oil supplement called SPM Active, L glutathionne and Quercetin with Bromelain. I recently switched to this fish oil from  Maxi Tears. I kept with it b/c it seemed to help much better with the brain fog. It's very pricey though.... Also, 200 mgs of plaquenil per day.....

Nexium, synthroid, HRT, plaquenil,  Restasis, Maxi-tears supplement, L-glutathionne, CoQ10, folate, trintillex,  multi vitamin. lisinopril.

I take two 650 mg curcumin daily. If your stomach can handle it, you can take it 3 times a day. I also take 2 fish oil gels twice a day.
