What Does Omega 3 And 6 Fatty Acids Do For Slowing Your Skin Aging?


Visitors: 169

If you haven't heard of Linoleic acid during your reading about anti aging, now is the time to listen up. This miracle brings another boost for many of us that are feeling the bite of aging not only in fine lines and wrinkles but along the waistline as well.

In fact, Linoleic acid, an essential fatty acid (an omega 6 fatty acid), may be one of the best gifts we can give ourselves when it comes to slowing skin aging. So what's it all about? Well, let's find out!

A diet that is rich in Linoleic acid was connected in a recent study with the prevention of or less signs of skin aging.

What did this study show? The women in the study who had more foods that were high in Linoleic acid were found to show less signs of aging that are linked to dryness. This doesn't mean that all signs of aging were negated by consuming foods that are high in Linoleic or other fatty acids.

As well as these skin benefits, adding Linoleic acid to your diet has been linked to better overall health and exceptionally better weight control. The possibility of working to diminish the signs of aging that we fight so diligently can only be seen as a bonus to something that is already a good thing.

How do you get enough of this good oil into your diet? You can work more Linoleic acid into your diet by consuming foods such as sunflower seeds, walnuts, soy beans, spirulina, fatty fish such as salmon, lamb, and kangaroo meat (particularly those that have been grass fed) and drinking cows milk (again it is much better to drink milk from cows that were grass fed as grass is the primary source of the Linoleic acid).

In fact, there have been many studies recently that cite the impact of diet on skin health. It would be prudent not to ignore these findings if you are concerned with the health of your skin, particularly if dryness is a factor, as it seems to be with Linoleic acid.

So there you have it.

As you can see, it's quite easy to add some of these foods to your diet and gain the benefits right away. So as usual, it's the wholesome unprocessed foods from nature that will help you regain great skin that's smooth and youthful looking.

You now know yet another way of improving your diet to include foods that are rich in essential oils to help you to reduce wrinkles and other signs of skin aging, and to have youthful skin for years to come!
