Omega Fatty Acids: Your Skin’s Secret Weapon

Omega Fatty Acids: Your Skin’s Secret Weapon

Spread the love

There are many omega-3 products out there that claim to provide incredible benefits, some obviously better than others. But which ones really work? To help you choose, I will share my experience of Advanced Nutrition Programme Skin Omegas

My skin was dehydrated and dull. Since taking Skin Omegas+( about a year now) it has completely changed my skin! Omegas are your internal moisturiser – although not an excuse to skip your topical regime!

While the best moisturiser is a no-brainer when it comes to a healthy glow, sometimes the best way to fix your skin is from the inside out with skin supplements that actually work.

Alongside your topical skincare routine Skin Omega+ ensures skin cells are kept in tip-top condition, boosting hydration levels, improving radiance and prolonging a youthful complexion.

The supplement combines omega 3, from sustainable fish oil, and omega 6 from evening primrose oil – with the addition of vitamin A to maintain healthy skin cells.Aside from their benefits to skin, these ingredients also maintain healthy functions across the rest of the body, impacting your vision, immune system, blood pressure, heart and brain! The skin’s barrier function is increased, improving the skin’s hydration leading to a reduction in dry, flaky, dehydrated skin.

Both omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids are essential for maintaining good health, and they offer distinct benefits:

Omega-3 Fatty Acids:

  • Heart Health: Play a crucial role in promoting heart health by reducing triglycerides, lowering blood pressure, and preventing blood clots.
  • Brain Function: Support healthy brain function and development, contributing to memory, learning, and cognitive function.
  • Anti-inflammatory: Possess anti-inflammatory properties that can help manage conditions like arthritis, autoimmune diseases, and asthma.
  • Mood and Mental Health: May play a role in improving mood and reducing symptoms of depression and anxiety.
  • Eye Health: Contribute to maintaining healthy vision and may help prevent age-related macular degeneration.

Omega-6 Fatty Acids:

  • Skin Health: Promote healthy skin by supporting cell growth and repair, keeping skin hydrated and supple, and reducing inflammation.
  • Bone Health: May contribute to bone health and development.
  • Immune Function: Play a role in maintaining a healthy immune system.
  • Energy Regulation: May help regulate metabolism and energy production.

While both are essential, it’s important to maintain a healthy balance:

  • Most Western diets tend to be higher in omega-6 than omega-3. Aiming for a more balanced ratio (around 4:1 omega-6 to omega-3) can be beneficial for overall health.
  • Sources of Omega-3: Fatty fish (salmon, tuna, sardines), flaxseeds, chia seeds, walnuts.
  • Sources of Omega-6: Vegetable oils (sunflower, corn, soybean), nuts (pumpkin, sunflower), seeds (sesame, poppy).

Advanced Nutrition Skin Omega’s ( 60 capsules) retail at £34.
