We have highlighted some of the brand/products that would be suitable for eczema skin health :
HealthAid Omega 3 Capsules
Omega-3 is an essential fatty acid that is vital for healthy skin and are classified as essential fats. They are essential because your body cannot produce them on its own so they must come from your diet. Most of us are aware that oily fish like salmon are rich source of omega-3 fatty acids.
HealthAid Omega 3 capsules are specially formulated using Norwegian salmon fish oil to give a highly concentrated source of Omega-3 Polyunsaturates, EPA and DHA in their free from for improved digestibility, assimilation and efficacy. If you do not consume sufficient good quality fish for omega 3 or if you have very dry skin, you can add this supplement as part of your dietary requirement.
Sundown Natural Cold-Pressed Flaxseed Oil
Sundown Naturals®, from USA offers a full line of the quality vitamins and supplements that are 100% free of gluten, dairy, and artificial flavors. Thus, their products are suitable for allergy-prone or sensitive diet needs. One of the key feature of this brand is that ALL their vitamins and supplements are 100% Non-GMO (genetically modified).
However, even though salmon & tuna are generally low-mercury fish, some consumers have concerns on mercury exposure. Flaxseed oil is a safe and low or non-allergenic ingredient which is a reliable source of Omega-3.
Sundown Natural’s Flaxseed Oil supplement is natural and cold-pressed. It is made of organic flaxseed. The flaxseeds go through a unique cold processing method where they are pressed at very cold temperatures and processed without solvents, to mantain its integrity.
