The typical American’s diet, and more particularly the typical teenaged American’s diet, is anything but skin-healthy. In fact, it’s not healthy for any part of the body. Teenagers like to eat what is fast, easy, and socially convenient. This usually translates into meals made up of hamburgers, French fries, pizzas, hot dogs, and sodas. For snacks, they go for the chips and the candy bars.
There are many nutrients that are important for the body to be healthy and to function properly, but there are three nutrients that are of special importance to the health of the skin and the prevention of acne.
Inflammation is our body’s natural reaction to injury or infection. Inflammation may sometimes lead to weight gain, which gives rise to lethargy, high blood sugar levels and hormonal imbalances. This can be checked by consuming naturally processed grape seed extract (an excellent antioxidant), green tea extract and mineral extracts.
Many of the plant oils like soybean oil, Royal CBD and corn oil can be used for cooking. It has to be kept in mind that plant oils lower blood pressure significantly and therefore you shouldn’t take these oils directly in large amounts. cbd oil is one of the best plant sources of omega 3 fats as it also contains omega 6 fats which are required by the body.
Flax seed oil has been found to be very useful in the context of controlling bad cholesterol levels in the body. It is also beneficial for the stomach and is highly recommended to people with stomach ulcers and other similar problems.
Fiber helps your body digest food efficiently, rather than leaving it lingering in your digestive tract. Without daily fiber you will feel and look more bloated than you otherwise would. Protein boosts your metabolism and helps your body build muscle, and burn off that pesky fat. Focus on foods that are low in fat, and high in EFA’s (Essential fatty acids). The best EFA to look for is omega 3, which has many health benefits, and is found in supplements like fish oil, and vitamin D.
Many fad diets emphasize the elimination of certain food groups or eating primarily only one or two food groups. Your body needs a balanced diet that supplies you with the diverse nutrients that will keep you healthy.
You will need to consume sufficient healthy fats, in particular Omega-3 and Omega-6 found in fish oils and a variety of seed oils. Unfortunately our levels of these fats are usually wildly out of balance as Omega-6 oils are far more abundant in our diet than omega-3 For this reason you should look for a supplement with a ratio of 3 parts omega-3 to 1 part omega-6 either in the form of a capsule or by using hemp oil.
