Executive Summary

Black currant seed oil, tripterygium wilfodii hook F and curcumin effected "weak but positive results for joint tenderness and/or swelling," while borage seed oil is "moderately good for joint tenderness, swelling and pain," Karen Soeken, PhD, et al., University of Maryland School of Medicine, conclude from analysis of 12 randomized controlled trials culled from five databases. Evening primrose oil, boswellia and RA-1 are not supported by studies, they add, but topical capsaicin cream may be effective for pain relief
