Fisk & Omega 3 besegrar hudens inflammationer

Fish & Omega 3 defeat skin inflammations

Norway has high mountains, beautiful fjords, pristine waters and an abundance of healthy food. Salmon fishing has made Norway famous and of course part of the Norwegian diet.

Salmon is a powerhouse of omega-3, which is beneficial in defeating skin inflammation. If the inflammation is not controlled, it can lead to the skin not only becoming red, but also losing moisture. Each three-gram portion of salmon contains 1.7 grams of omega-3. In addition, salmon is a healthy source of vitamin E, a potent antioxidant that helps protect the skin against free radicals.

Other fish with a high content of omega-3 include mackerel and herring. Each three-gram portion of fish contains mackerel 1.6 grams and herring 1.4 grams. If you prefer a lighter white fish, you can enjoy halibut, haddock, cod or trout, which still contain omega-3 but in smaller amounts.

When shopping for fish, choose fresh and local fish. Find out when it has been caught or shipped from a farm. Make sure it has a good color and smell before you buy it.

The benefits of collagen for skin health are incomparable. Common sources are fish, chicken, beef, eggs and dairy products. In Norway, reindeer meat is also included, a tradition that began with the Sami. The meat is included in many dishes, including hearty stews. The Sami honor the life of the reindeer by using all its parts. Reindeer bones and bone marrow are the starting point for making a healthy, collagen-rich reindeer bone broth.

Collagen works best together with vitamin C. It also has its own skin benefits by reducing inflammation and protecting the skin from harmful UVA and UVB rays in the sunshine. Of course, we like to look in the woods for wild strawberries, blueberries, lingonberries, elderberries and blackberries. These berries are full of vitamin C and have an intense flavor. Due to the cold climate, the berries take longer to grow and then ripen during the summer.

No matter how well we eat, we can always need the nutritional boost that supplements give our bodies. Aarja Health's Omega 3 Krill Oil contains healthy EPA and DHA found in fish and shellfish. The red color comes from the powerful antioxidant astaxanthin, which naturally occurs in krill. For vegans, we have Vegan Omega , a completely plant-based product.

For best absorption, use hydrolyzed collagen type II, found in Aarja Health's Collagen with Pine Bark . The natural antioxidants in pine bark are one of the reasons Norwegians have been brewing tea from pine needles for centuries. And don't forget to add a vitamin C tablet to support collagen production. We love Aarja Health's Vitamin C 500 + Zinc + Chaga + Rosehip , which helps maintain healthy hair and healthy nails too.

Incorporate some of these ingredients into your daily meals. Support beauty from within. Your skin will thank you!
