Flaxseed oil, a fish oil challenger?
53 rue Auguste Buisson, 92250
La Garenne-Colombes, France
The too low level of omega-3 intake in the modern diet is a fact which is worrying health professional and authorities. Among the “traditional” recommendation for a safe and equilibrated diet, recommending food containing omega-3, is there, out of the inescapable fish oil leading to some digestive discomforts, any alternative? Two human clinical trials conducted to verify the effective efficiency of this re equilibrated diet on various skin parameters (hydration, surface evaluation, inflammation) are reviewed here. The results of the clinical trials on various skin parameters (hydration, trans epidermal water loss, roughness, scaling, superficial inflammation and blood flow) were quite convincing about the interest of such a supplementation.
Key words: PUFA / skin / hydration / inflammation / blood flow
