Acne

Skin inflammation, impure skin, and skin problems

The Story

The Story

At the age of 15, my face was in a particularly bad state - I suffered from severe acne. This was not only an aesthetic problem - the severe skin blemishes put a huge psychological strain on me. I had tried everything, all the branded products from the adverts that promised clear skin, and also consulted several dermatologists about my acne. Whatever I tried, my skin condition always improved in the short term, only to get worse again soon after. At the age of 19, I decided to undergo treatment with the drug Ciscutan, which unfortunately didn’t have the desired success either.

The Journey

I simply didn’t want to accept my skin condition and, as a trained nutritionist, I started to look at the connection between skin condition and nutrition, especially the role of micronutrients. For a long time, I’d had a general interest in omega-3 fatty acids and their positive effects on the body. However, I found the studies on the topic of omega-3 fatty acids and acne particularly exciting as they sounded extremely promising. I wanted to try it, so I started supple- menting daily with omega-3 fatty acids from various manufacturers. On the advice of friends, however, I quickly switched to Omega 3 forte 700 because I was impressed by both the high quality and the high dosage of omega-3 fatty acids they contain.

The Success

Taking the omega-3 fatty acids quickly had a major impact on my skin - the acne receded, and my face became clearer. For me this was an enormous success, because acne, especially on the face, causes a heavy psycho- logical burden. Excitingly, I also noticed positive effects on my quality of sleep, and recovery after sports also improved. Since environmental issues are important to me, and I eat an almost entirely plant-based diet, I switched to Omega 3 vegan DHA & EPA 450 Gold some time ago. I’ve since started working as a store employee for Biogena and am happy to recommend omega-3 fatty acids to other customers with skin problems - with complete success.

The Scientific Assessment

Skin,Hair,Nails_Table-06.png

The right ratio of omega-3 to omega-6 fatty acids in the diet is particularly important for diseases associated with increased inflammation. Omega-6 fatty acids have a pro-inflammatory effect and omega-3 fatty acids have an anti-inflammatory effect. Both are important for the body, but neither should be overdone. Increasing the intake of omega-3 fatty acids can have a regulating effect on excessive inflammation.
