Vegetarian Omega fatty acid slows down the ageing process of the skin it has long been known that a healthy diet can also positively affect a person’s physical appearance. The skin becomes firmer and just healthier. Now American researchers in a large study have tried with over 4,000 women to find out what nutrients for healthy skin tight could be responsible. To do this, they studied over several years very detailed the eating habits and the health of the skin by 4025 Americans of middle-aged. The researchers found that consumption leads to wrinkled skin fat and Kohlehydratreicher food. An effect that most women want to avoid if possible.

Vitamin C and Alpha-Linolensaure(ALA) had a positive influence on the appearance of the skin. ALA is an omega-3 – fatty acid, which occurs only in vegetable oils, particularly common in linseed oil. The researchers found that with ALA the drying out and shrinking of aging skin can be prevented because it promotes the regeneration of the skin and at the same time dampens the natural processes of inflammation, which can lead to redness, inflammation and eczema. Capsules with highly purified linseed oil for daily consumption for beautiful healthy skin are available as OmVitum. These capsules represent, so the manufacturers, an ideal complement to cosmetic care products with Omega fatty acids. OmVitum (PZN 4604189) is available in pharmacies or directly at Navitum Pharma under. Source: Cosgrove MC et al. Am J Clin Nutr. 2007;86(4):1225-31
