- Anyone with allergies of any kind. Environmental (hayfever, trees, pets, etc.), Foods (including sensitivities, not just true allergies), and Skin allergies.
- Anyone with a skin condition of any sort. Eczema, psoriasis, contact dermatitis, etc.
- Anyone with arthritis.
- Anyone with heart disease/cholesterol problems.
O3FAs have also been found to be useful in reducing the inflammation associated with heart disease and in lower "bad" cholesterol levels.
So where does one get O3FAs. The best, of course is if you can get natural, whole food sources of O3FAs. Some common sources are:
- The flesh of fish - particularly the gray area between the skin and the "regular" flesh.
- Flax seeds
- Soybeans - including, in lesser amounts, tofu
As always, talk with your acupuncturist or other health care provider about appropriate doses for you.
