Eczema and supplements

In this blog article, I would like to cover the use of supplements to strengthen the body to deal with eczema.

Essential fatty acids (omega 3)
High quality omega 3 oil is a good source of anti inflammatory fatty acids taken as a supplement for eczema. Essential fatty acids must be ingested because the body cannot synthesise it. Omega oil also helps to soften the skin. If the reader is taking an Omega 3-6-9 supplement set, the reader should note omega 6 is an inflammatory fatty acid.

From experience, I found it makes a big difference ingesting omega 3 oil. The skin heals more quickly and subject to less dry cracks. All eczema sufferers should consider taking it.

Vitamins and minerals
I use to take an A to Z supplement everyday but research has proven that the human body absorbs minerals and vitamins most effectively as complex forms rather than as synthesised forms. Hence, I would not advocate taking any vitamin supplement but to focus on eating nutrient rich foods.

Vitamin E is an important vitamin for eczema because it protects the skin from UV damage, keeps skin soft and limits oxidative stress. Food rich in vitamin e includes
1. Broccoli
2. Red pepper
3. Spinach
4. Kiwi fruit and papaya

Vitamin C is another important vitamin because it restock vitamin E supplies as well as protect cells from free radicals. Food rich in vitamin c includes
1. Kiwi fruit and papaya
2. Broccoli
3. Strawberries
4. Chillies
5. Oranges

Probiotics
Depending on your dietary habits, I would advocate the intake of high quality probiotics to help maintain a good balance of microorganism in the gut.

Bee Pollen
Although I don’t take A to Z vitamin supplements, I do take 10g of bee pollen everyday. Bee Pollen is one of the most nutrient-dense food offered by mother nature containing minerals, vitamins, folic acid and enzymes.

From experience, I also found that ingesting bee pollen also has a positive effect on my well being. Energy level as well as overall well being is generally better.

Cranberry juice
During eczema recovery, I would take half a cup of pure unsweetened cranberry juice everyday. It is a good tonic for cleansing the lymph nodes and liver.

  1. Fish oil is constituted of the omega-3 fatty acids EPA and DHA, both lacking in American diets. As a general guideline, a 130 pound woman should aim to take 1700 mg EPA and 1300 mg DHA daily, a 170 pound woman should take 2500 mg EPA and 2000 mg DHA daily, and a 230 pound woman should take 3400 mg EPA and 2600 mg DHA daily. These amounts may be scaled down for someone as light as 100 pounds, but lighter women are cautioned against the regimen.*
