Acne- These foods are proven to reduce acne flare-ups

New research finds that diet can be instrumental in managing acne.

Over 9 out of 10 people with acne were diagnosed with low levels of omega-3 Ω-3
The research team of the Department of Dermatology and Allergies of the Ludwig-Maximilian University in Munich, Germany studied 100 patients diagnosed with acne and by measuring nutritional parameters in their blood, discovered that 94% of patients had levels of omega-3 fatty acids below the recommended limits (8%-11%).

The researchers also looked at the patients’ diet and saw that those of them who reported that they regularly consumed legumes, such as chickpeas and lentils, while abstaining from sunflower oil, had higher levels of omega-3

The key role of nutrition

“Nutrition plays a pivotal role in the prevention, onset and progression of many diseases, including skin disorders such as the common ‘’acne vulgaris,” said Dr. Ann Girtler, lead author of the new study from Ludwig-Maximilian University, adding that “doctors should provide patients with information on how their choice of diet can affect and possibly improve therapeutic outcomes.”

The anti-inflammatory effect of omega-3

“Omega-3 Ω3 fatty acids seem to be highly promising thanks to their anti-inflammatory action.” It should be noted that the omega-3 contained in foods such as legumes, nuts, wild salmon and sardines, reduce inflammation by activating the production of anti-inflammatory prostaglandins E1 and E3, leukotriene B5 and reducing the levels of insulin-like growth factor-1 (IGF-1) – the main hormone that causes acne.

The cost of acne for sufferers

Acne ‘acne vulgaris’ has a great cost for sufferers, negatively affecting their personal and professional lives. This new study helps us get one step closer to effective treatments for the millions of people who feel uncomfortable because of this skin condition and who can provide additional health benefits. It also reinforces the idea that a healthy diet is vital for the long-term remission of acne.

While this path needs further exploration, it gives hope to patients looking for ways to manage their condition.”
