Is Omega 3 helpful to improve symptoms of psoriasis?

Omega-3s and, of course, supplements, are said to be appropriate treatments for psoriasis. We focus on this topic in this article. In the following, we will examine whether or not Omega-3 is useful for the treatment of psoriasis, and if so, how much should it be consumed and which food is found?

Omega-3 and psoriasis
Studies have shown that omega-3s are beneficial in improving symptoms of psoriasis. A comprehensive review published in the Journal of the American Academy of Skin Care shows that omega-3s have improved symptoms and conditions of psoriasis, including redness, scaling, itching and skin inflammation in 12 of 15 cases. Omega 3 intake can be beneficial in improving psoriasis over a period of three months or more, researchers say.

Omega-3 also improves the symptoms and side effects of psoriasis. For example, people with psoriasis are more at risk for heart disease, while omega-3 consumption can be beneficial for the prevention of heart disease.

Appropriate dose of omega-3
To take advantage of omega-3s, the consumer must ensure that the supplements they ingest contain sufficient and balanced amounts of EPA and DHA. These ingredients are sufficient in most fish oil supplements. Food guidelines for Americans suggest that taking about 200 grams of fish or other seafood and 250 milligrams of EPA and DHA per week can greatly reduce the risk of death from heart disease.

In the same vein, Wilson Liao, a dermatologist at the University of California, recommends that those who intend to take advantage of Omega-3s for psoriasis should do so slowly when they start taking Omega-3 supplements. Gradually increase the dose. He says:

"If patients are going to start taking Omega-3 supplements, I would recommend one gram of EPA and half a gram of DHA per day." This amount should be used for 8 weeks, and then check whether or not recovery in psoriasis has been achieved? "

Meanwhile, it is better to get an omega-3 supplement during meals or afterwards to get a better result. In general, it is advisable to consult your doctor before taking supplements so you can take omega-3s without getting any complications with the advice you need.

Best Resources Omega 3
Still, research on the best Omega 3 resources is still ongoing. But in general, Omega-3 supplements are good options, especially for those who do not consume fish and other seafood. Apart from supplements, there are some foods that have a significant amount of omega-3s, including:

Salmon fish
Kingfish
Sardines
Mackerel
Walnut
Flaxseed oil
Chia seed
It is worth noting that there is currently no evidence that one of the sources of omega-3 is better than other sources for treating and improving psoriasis. Depending on the circumstances, one or more of the above can be used to get the omega-3 needed by the body. Regardless of the above, you can go to the pharmacy and even the reputable stores and buy the supplement of omega-3. One of the most commonly used and best-performing Omega-3 supplements is the following:

Fish oil supplement
Creele oil supplement
Algae Supplement (This supplement is not from algae and is not an animal, therefore it is suitable for those who do not eat seafood and animals.)
Flaxseed oil (this also applies to those who do not consume animal foods.)
Research has not yet shown which supplements are better than other supplements for psoriasis, although research is still ongoing. Of course, a study and study suggests that fish oil supplementation for people with psoriasis is more beneficial than other supplements.

 

Homeopathic remedies for psoriasis
According to the National Foundation for Psoriasis (in the United States), the following can be helpful in improving the symptoms of psoriasis:

The intake of vitamin D (supplementation with vitamin D helps boost the immune system, which may also be useful to improve psoriasis, because it is an autoimmune disease).
Turmeric (Turmeric is a herbal root anti-inflammatory and antioxidant, so it can also be useful in the improvement of psoriasis.)
Oregon grapes (Oregon grapefruit cream can also be used to improve the symptoms of psoriasis, although Oregon grapes are also available as an oral supplement, but you should consult your doctor before taking it).
Aloe Vera (Using Aloe Vera on the skin can improve redness or scaling skin.)
