Omega-3 Fish Oil for Skin & Hair Health

Beauty from the inside out.

The best kept beauty secrets may not be found at the cosmetic counter or drug store. What if we were to tell you that when it comes to healthy hair and skin, you should also be perusing the supermarket and supplement aisles? Oily fish, nuts and leafy green vegetables are high in fatty acids and protein, both crucial nutrients needed to help stimulate the production of healthy skin . We have all heard about good and healthy fats these days. Olive oil, avocados and foods rich in omega-3s top the list as “good” fats that we should be incorporating into our daily diets. The foods we put into our body are as vital as the products we put on it.

We have all heard of the benefits around omega-3s such heart health, eye health and joint health but what is less well known is the role these essential fatty acids play on hair and skin. Our bodies are not capable of producing eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) so we need all these essential fatty acids through diet and supplementation.

1. Healthy, shiny, lustrous hair: Wouldn’t you love it if your hair looked like the hair shown in TV shampoo commercials? Shiny, nearly silky hair is typically what most women strive for but aren’t sure how to achieve these beautiful locks. For healthy, shiny hair, you need proper nutrition. Omega-3 fatty acids nourish your hair follicles for stronger, shinier hair and here at Coromega, we are happy to share these wonderful benefits with you too!

2. Glowing, hydrated skin: Omega-3s support a healthy skin inflammatory response which is greatly a positive aspect for clearer skin. These are just one reason, among many, why we love Omega-3 and the wonderful benefits it has on our skin. Fatty acids can act as natural moisturizers that revitalize dry skin from the inside out.

If you'd like to reap the benefits of fish oil, you can take them in supplement form - like our delicious Coromega Squeeze Omega-3 fish oil supplement. You can also get more fish oil in your diet by eating more oily fish. The American Heart Association recommends eating two 6-ounce servings of fish per week. Choose fish that are high in omega-3 fatty acids, such as some of the following:

• Sardines

• Anchovies

• Albacore tuna

• Wild caught Salmon

Remember to avoid the larger species of fish, such as shark, swordfish, king mackerel and tilefish, as these varieties are very high in mercury. Try to eat mostly those fish that are lower in mercury, such as those listed above, and eat a wide variety of fish to make sure you're getting proper nutrition.
