Omega-3 Fats Potentially Useful as an Anti-Acne Remedy


Orlando, FL -- (SBWIRE) -- 11/19/2015 -- There are quite a number of commercially-available skincare products that are formulated to treat acne. However, many of these products contain chemicals that are not ideal for all skin types, and some of them can even cause long-term side effects on the skin. The good news is that nowadays, people are turning to natural remedies to achieve healthy and flawless skin.

Omega-3 fats are potentially useful as an anti-acne remedy. Omega-3 fats can be found in cold-water fish such as herring, tuna, sardines, and halibut. These healthy fats are believed to be essential for body functioning, and their use is associated with a variety of health benefits.

"Individuals who do not want to consume fish on a daily basis but want to obtain omega-3 fats may take fish oil supplements instead," said VitaBreeze Supplements spokesperson, Michelle O'Sullivan.

According to studies, omega-3 fatty acids have the potential to reduce acne by 42 percent. It is found to be helpful among the female population who are experiencing hormonal issues, which often result in the development of acne. Omega-3s are healthy fats that are widely studied by researchers and scientists, especially for the treatment of conditions such as heart disease.

Researchers conducted two studies to determine the effects of fish oil on acne. In one study, it was shown that omega-3 fatty acids have been able to reduce non-inflammatory acne by 20 percent and inflammatory acne by 42 percent.

The second study, on the other hand, found that omega-3 fats are potentially beneficial to people with moderate or severe acne. While researchers added that omega-3 fats may not have any effect among those who suffer from mild acne, they can benefit women who suffer from premenstrual breakouts or PCOS-related acne. DHA, or docosahexaenoic, and EPA, or the eicosapentaenoic acids, are types of omega-3 fats that are believed to be very therapeutic. Individuals who want to consume these omega-3s can use fish oil supplements.

A study was published by the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, and it involved 109 female subjects who suffered from PCOS. It was found that women with higher omega-6 fats also had increased levels of DHEAS and testosterone, which are associated with acne. After a follow-up study, it was found that the subjects who consumed omega-3s on a daily basis experienced a reduction in their DHEAS and testosterone levels.

Today, omega-3 fats have become widely available through fish oil supplements. The most recommended fish oil supplements are those that contain capsules with enteric coating, which gets rid of the fishy aftertaste and increases absorption inside the body (
