Omega iii's- A necessity, not a luxury

Healthy fats are one of the most important elements in skin health. They are the ultimate in nurturing beauty from the inside out. Nuts, seeds, avocado, grass fed butter, coconut and olive oil all have benefits when it comes to skin health, but Omega III's are where it's at. Why? because Omega fats help slow down the aging process and restore moisture to dry skin and promote a healthy complexion. They have strong anti-inflammatory properties, Omega-3s help heal and reduce inflammation underneath the skin’s surface, which speeds up healing and reduces the severity of acne as well as other inflammatory skin conditions.

When pollution, stress and an unhealthy diet trigger inflammation, your skin’s collagen suffers, which in turn, can lead to wrinkles around the eyes and mouth and on the forehead. Eating more foods packed with omega-3 fatty acids, like salmon, chia seeds, spinach and kidney beans, and other inflammation-fighting foods, helps support your skin’s structure, reducing the appearance of fine lines.

Omega-3s are a crucial part of your skin’s lipid (fat) content. Each skin cell is surrounded by two layers of fat and help bolster its barrier function, which, when working properly, acts like a seal that keeps moisture in. High levels of omega-3 have been shown to plump up the look of the skin, by reducing inflammation as well as supplying the building blocks for healthy skin cells.

Other benefits of Omega III fish oil are 

  • promotes heart health

  • promotes cognitive health

  • promotes normal cholesterol levels

  • helps maintain healthy blood pressure levels

  • promotes eye health

  • supports joint health

  • helps enhance mood  

I don't know about you, but I want all of those things!


It's important to know that not all Omega III fish oils are created equal. Let me ask you this? Would you eat rotten fish? Fish that's been sitting on the counter for 3 days? I would say that's a hard no, right? Unless your fish oil has a preservative in it, it is likely rancid, or will be before you're finished with the bottle. Would you eat a toxic fish? The fishes that are used for fish oil, many times are laden with PCB's, mercury, pesticides etc. It's best to consume fish oil sourced from small fishes and clean water sources. 

You really can't "save a buck" when it comes to one of the most important supplements we can take. My belief when it comes to taking a high quality Omega III supplement- it is not a luxury, it is a necessity-
