h2>Omegas and Your Health

We hear about staying away from fatty foods from doctors and the news. However, there’s one type of fat you don’t want to cut back on: omega fatty acids (EFAs). There are 3 kinds of omega fatty acids –ALA, EPA and DHA. Not only does your body need these fatty acids to function, but also they have big health benefits. Omega-3s are “essential” fatty acids because the body isn’t capable of producing them on its own. Therefore, we must rely on omega-3 foods in our diet or supplementing to supply these extremely beneficial compounds.

Acne is the most common skin disorder in the United States. Somewhere between 40 and 50 million Americans suffer from acne and nearly 85 percent of Americans have acne at some point during their lives. Most occurs on the face, chest, and back. Many people are self conscious about their acne because it appears in such prominent places. If you suffer from acne and don’t want to use chemical solutions, home remedies can be a great option. A baking soda exfoliant reduces breakouts and inflammation and you can clear up acne and balance the skin’s pH with apple cider vinegar. Coconut oil and tea tree oil combat acne with antibacterial properties. Also, you can use honey, cinnamon, and nutmeg as an acne spot treatment.
