There are many benefits to adding omega 3 oils to prevent dry skin to your diet. These commonly known benefits are listed below, but first I want to mention that omega 3 fatty acids are also excellent for your skin, including for preventing a dry scalp. Here is the amazing list;
"• Reduce the risk of stroke and sudden heart attack by 50-80% • Improve good cholesterol • Decrease bad cholesterol • Reduce joint inflammation and rheumatoid arthritis • Improve brain function • Prevent Alzheimer's • Reduce the risk of breast cancer • Reduce the risk of prostate cancer • Reduce depression • Improve memory • Improve sleep • Increase energy • Reduce severity and frequency of migraines • Boost infant IQ • Improved eye health
"The most important supplement for people to be taking is fish oil. Just three grams a day may provide enormous benefits. It may lower the risk of heart attack or sudden cardiac death by 50 to 80 percent. It may reduce the risk of prostrate and breast cancer. It may reduce depression. When given to pregnant and nursing mothers, it may increase a baby's IQ."
From: Newsweek Jan 16, 2006. While research is rarely deemed conclusive, it is certainly supportive.
