Omega-3 And Eczema

In light of recent headlines surrounding the health benefits of Omega 3 some people are asking if taking a fish oil supplement might help care for eczema and ease its symptoms.

Unfortunately, it is in fatty fish like herring, mackerel, sardines, tuna and salmon that we find the most important Omega 3 fatty acids known as Eicosapentaenoic acid or EPA and Docosahexaenoic acid or DHA. This leaves us with no option other than to eat contaminated fish or take fish oil supplements if we want the health benefits associated with Omega 3.

The Omega 6 and Omega 3 imbalance

We need Omega 6 just as much as we need Omega 3 but the Omega 6 fatty acids just so happen to be abundant in our diet so we dont have any problems getting enough. We can find Omega 6 in meat and dairy sources, vegetable oils and processed foods. However, the same doesnt apply to Omega 3.

What is Eczema and can Omega 3 help?

Its possible that by redressing the balance between Omega 3 and Omega 6 we can help to reduce inflammation and therefore all the health problems associated with inflammation, including eczema. Healing eczema products naturally can be a daunting task for many eczema sufferers. Once you strengthen your immune system and start to eat the proper food then your skin infection can be drastically improved.
