Omega-3s for Healthy Skin

With summer just around the corner, our thoughts often turn to keeping our skin healthy and glowing! With this in mind, it’s important to be aware of the two types of ultraviolet light that can cause damage to the body: ultraviolet A (skin aging) and ultraviolet B (skin burning). UV light can cause damage to DNA skin cells, which may lead to mutations that cause skin cancer and premature aging (UV radiation and the skin). It is extremely important to protect yourself against this harmful radiation. Of course, sunscreen is a must, but what you may not know is that we can also protect our skin from the inside out!


Omega-3 fatty acids play numerous vital roles in the body, including an important role in maintaining skin health and preventing sun damage. DHA and EPA are two forms of long-chain omega-3s that reduce the skin’s sensitivity to UV rays. Additionally, omega-3s have shown the potential in reducing the severity of photosensitivity and sun-induced damage (Omega-3 Polyunsaturated Fatty Acids).


Beyond the sun damage-reducing effects, omega-3s can also improve acne by reducing inflammation of the skin. Furthermore, these amazing fatty acids also promote glowing skin by improving the skin barrier and holding in moisture (Omega-3 Polyunsaturated Fatty Acids).

If you’re seeking an effective way to enhance your skin- and really, who isn’t? - then EO3 is perfect for you! In just one EO3 drink, you can meet your daily omega-3 requirements, as it contains 1600mg of omega-3 fatty acids. What sets EO3 apart is that it offers far more than a typical skin supplement. While supplements isolate specific vitamins for a targeted benefit, EO3 provides a wide array of nutrients and health benefits. In addition to its plentiful omega-3s, each serving of EO3 provides 20 grams of protein, 1.5 grams of fiber, 25% of our daily recommended intake of Vitamin D, 20% of Vitamin E, and 58% of iodine. With all of these amazing health benefits, EO3 is truly the drink of the summer!
