Fish Oil, Perhaps Combined With Aspirin, May Reduce Gum Inflammation

April 24, 2012: 12:00 AM EST
A review of eight studies on the effect of omega-3 fatty acids on gum inflammation has found that a combination of fish oil and aspirin seemed to have a significant impact, at least in two of the studies. The Australian researchers said the evidence that fish oil can be effective in reducing periodontal symptoms is growing, but is not conclusive. More well-designed studies are needed to assess the effectiveness of fish oil alone, and combined with aspirin, in combating periodontitis.
