Studies Show That Fish Oil Supplements Are a Great Acne Remedy


Orlando, FL -- (SBWIRE) -- 05/19/2015 -- Acne is one of the things that many people suffer from. There are several reasons why acne develops, and people often resort to various remedies just to get rid of it. The good news is that there seems to be a great solution for individuals who want to have flawless and healthy skin.

Studies show that fish oil supplements are a great acne remedy as they can reduce the skin condition by 42%. This natural alternative can be very helpful, especially for women who are suffering from the consequences of having hormonal issues, such as acne.

"Several studies have been conducted to see the effects of fish oil on the skin. These studies have also been able to answer some questions that people normally ask, such as what should be avoided or how much fish oil should they take," said VitaBreeze Supplements spokesperson, Michelle O'Sullivan.

Two studies were also conducted to see how fish oil affects the skin, particularly acne. In one study, it was found that the natural alternative has been able to reduce inflammatory acne by 42% and non-inflammatory acne by 20%. The other study revealed that it can be helpful to individuals who are suffering from severe or moderate acne. However, it will not have an effect among those who suffer from mild acne. There were also studies that found fish oil can be helpful to women who are suffering from hormonal issues, such as PCOS-related acne or premenstrual breakouts.

Fish oil supplements naturally contain omega-3 fatty acids. However, it is important to note that there are different types of omega 3 fats. Among the most popular ones are the DHA or docosahexaenoic acid, and EPA or the eicosapentaenoic acid. Getting these omega-3 fatty acids requires the consumption of fatty fish or the use of fish oil supplements.

The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition published a study that involved 109 women who suffered from PCOS. It was found that women with a higher ratio of omega 6/ omega 3 had higher androgen levels. The researchers divided the women into two groups, according to the blood levels of their omega 6 fats. It was found that women with higher omega 6 also had higher DHEAS and testosterone levels, both of which have been associated with acne.

The researchers made a follow up study where the participants were given omega 3 supplements every day, and the results were remarkable. It was found that there was a drop in the DHEAS and testosterone levels among individuals who were given omega 3 fatty acids (
