Omega-3 fatty acids protect the skin

They are extremely important for human health and their adequate intake is key to the proper functioning of the heart, brain, liver and immune system. Speech is about omega-3 fatty acids. They also affect the health of the skin.
Skin is the largest organ of our body. It forms a barrier that protects the body from fluid loss, temperature fluctuations and surrounding harmful microorganisms. Contains sensory cells that let us know about touch or cold. The skin has a large number of indispensable functions, and care is therefore very important.

Essential for beauty  

DHA and EPA are omega-3 fatty acids. DHA is a structural component of the skin, responsible for the health of the cell membranes of the skin cells. Insufficient skin suffers. DHA is especially important for:
  • softness of the skin,
  • its humidity,
  • its flexibility,
  • reduction of wrinkles.
EPA affects the skin in several ways:
  • involved in the formation of skin sebum,
  • has an effect on hydration,
  • slows aging of the skin,
  • acts as a prevention of acne,
  • prevents skin damage by sunlight.
  • Prevention of skin cancer

    Skin cancer is one of the most common cancers. The number of people affected by this disease is rising every year. Significant influence on the development of this type of cancer has sunlight - it suppresses skin immunity. Enough omega-3 fatty acids, however, alleviate this weakening. The skin can thus better prevent inflammation and tumor growth. However, Omega-3 fatty acids do not protect yourself. Sunscreens and other types of protection also play an important role in the prevention of sunburn and sun damage.
    Omega-3 fatty acids are important for the health of the skin, preventing its damage and aging. The body can not create these fatty acids itself. It is therefore necessary to receive them regularly in the diet. Achieving optimal intake can be included in the diet, at least twice a week. You can also use food supplements with fish oil.
