Fish oils are anti-inflammatory. You can certainly take any omega-3 oils with asacol or any other UC med. The New Eating Right for a Bad Gut has great information on omega-3 supplementation to reduce gut inflammation.

Sadgirl -

If it is only the omega3s you are looking for, there are capsules you can take without having to drink any nasty oil! They might even make cod liver oil caps. Just because your Mom is a masochist and drinks that stuff doesn't mean you have to suffer as well. lol

So we can now add Omega 3 to the list of a million things that "help"? This is becoming a joke, it really is - everyone taking advantage of us.
