Supplements for Systemic lupus erythematosus (lupus)

If suffer from lupus, or think you do, we recommend you to seek medical advice. The following supplements have been found to help alleviate symptoms:

Omega 3 in fish oil

Omega 3 fatty acids are well known for their anti-inflammatory properties. They have a protective effect against inflammatory diseases, such as lupus. They also seem to reduce the autoimmune reaction. Fish oil is one of the best sources of omega-3 fatty acids, and can be use as a supplement.

Vitamin D3

If you have been diagnosed with lupus, your doctor has normally told you to avoid sun exposure, as this can trigger additional reactions and symptoms in your body. Therefore, it is likely that you are or will become deficient in vitamin D, which is produced by the body when the skin is exposed to the sun. The problem is that lupus symptoms seem to be more severe in people with low vitamin D or vitamin D deficiency. This is likely due to the fact that vitamin D has an effect on your immune system and its capabilities to respond. Preliminary study suggests that taking vitamin D supplement is beneficial for people suffering from lupus.

Dosage
