Did you know that the human body is made up of approximately 37 trillion cells, and each one of them contains important omega-3 fatty acids that the body needs to stay healthy and function normally?
It’s true. Evidence from over 30,000 studies conducted on EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) indicate they play important roles throughout the body as influential structural components of cell membranes. However, the human body can’t produce the essential fats needed to create these important omega-3 fatty acids on its own, which is why we must rely on outside sources like cold-water fish and flaxseed to get the EPA and DHA we need for optimal cellular health and functioning.
When it comes to skin concerns such as acne (especially severe/inflammatory acne) omega-3s have consistently shown to significantly reduce visible lesions.
This is why an holistic approach to treating acne is so important. You must always focus on internals as well as topical solutions. Topical solutions should always be supportive of the skin. If you’re reverting to ablation in order to get results, you’re doing it very wrong.
The best Omega 3 supplements for acne are ones that contain the highest levels of EPA and DHA, because it’s these two essential fatty acids that have been shown to help regulate hormones and calm inflammation.
Omega-3s may also help with dry and dehydrated skin and other inflammatory skin conditions such as rosacea.
During pregnancy through breastfeeding, the need for omega-3’s increases even more. While pregnant, omega-3’s are a critical building block of the fetal brain, eyes, and nervous system. After baby is born, omega-3s support brain development and immune function, while also supporting healthy postpartum mood and well being for mum’s.
The stuff you find in your local supermarket for $14.95 for 500 capsules is not quality. It may not do you harm, but it certainly isn’t going to do you much good. This mass produced, low quality and cheap fish oil is something you should probably stay away from.
This is why we’ve chosen Nordic Naturals – one of the highest quality, leading fish oil brands in the world. It comes from some of the cleanest waters in the world – all the way from Arctic Norway. You can even retrieve the Certificate of Analysis of each individual product to ensure its purity and meets/exceeds all standards.
