Omega-3 fatty acids are basic building blocks of the cell membrane. When skin cells have adequate omega-3 fatty acids, the epidermis performs normal functions with greater efficiency: regeneration, hydration, removal of wastes and toxins, transport of oxygen and vitamins.
Deficientcy in omega-3 fatty acids can cause skin conditions like dryness, inflammation, eczema and premature aging.
Omega-3 fatty acids must be absorbed from other sources. The body cannot synthesize them.Omega-3 provides a foundation to maintain healthy skin, prevent skin aging, and improve moisture content--without adding oiliness--to both acne-prone and chronically dry skin.
