Modelled supplements for Autoimmune Disease

Conventional Beliefs

  1. Omega-3 Fatty Acids: Omega-3 supplements (found in fish oil or certain plant sources) possess anti-inflammatory properties. Some studies suggest that omega-3 fatty acids might help reduce inflammation associated with autoimmune conditions. They may be considered for potential benefits in managing symptoms, although evidence supporting their efficacy varies among different autoimmune diseases.

  2. Vitamin D: Low vitamin D levels have been associated with various autoimmune diseases. Maintaining adequate vitamin D levels is considered important for immune function. Some individuals with autoimmune conditions might have their vitamin D levels monitored and supplement with vitamin D under the guidance of a healthcare professional.

  3. Probiotics: Research into the role of gut health and the microbiome in influencing the immune system has led to interest in probiotics for autoimmune diseases. Some studies suggest that certain probiotic strains might have potential benefits in modulating the immune response and reducing inflammation. However, more research is needed to determine specific probiotic strains, dosages, and their effectiveness for different autoimmune conditions.

  4. Turmeric/Curcumin: Curcumin, a compound found in turmeric, has anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. Some individuals with autoimmune diseases may consider curcumin supplements due to their potential to reduce inflammation, although evidence supporting their efficacy in various autoimmune conditions is limited.

  5. Antioxidants: Antioxidants like vitamins C and E are believed to have potential benefits in reducing oxidative stress associated with autoimmune conditions. They may be considered as part of a balanced diet or supplements, although their specific effects on autoimmune diseases require further research.
