Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids have been found to be very helpful to sufferers of eczema, psoriasis, and many other non-communicable diseases.
The human body has many uses for Omega-3 DHA. The brain is made of 60% fat (much of which is DHA). Some studies have shown that people with a high intake of Omega-3 report increased mood stability, though more research is needed. Additionally, diabetic patients have found Omega-3 very helpful in reducing their insulin dependence.
Even small amounts of Omega-3 can improve your health, but 400mg per day is thought to be sufficient to reduce the risk of serious disease. Omega-3 can be obtained naturally from oil-rich fish and vegetable products, or from supplements.
