What is psoriasis?

Psoriasis is a skin disease, quite common as it affect up to 3% of the population. It is not contagious. It can be more or less severe, from one small lesion, to affliction of the entire body surface. In these extreme cases, psoriasis can be a significant problem for well-being.

Psoriasis usually develops slowly. The characteristic psoriatic plaques are red, sharply demarcated, and bleed easily. These plaques do not usually itch, and will heal without leaving scar tissue or affecting hair growth.

Supplements for psoriasis

Omega-3 Fatty Acids

In case of psoriasis, it is critical to reduce the consumption of meat and dairy products to reduce the intake of arachidonic acid (a fatty acid that is known to increase the inflammatory response and is found in high levels in people with psoriasis). At the same time, you should supplement with Omega 3 fatty acid (EPA / DHA), which are anti-inflammatory. Several clinical studies have demonstrated that supplementing the diet with 3,000 mg EPA and DHA daily results in significant improvement in psoriasis. However, we do not recommend taking that much without medical supervision.

Vitamin D

Vitamin D is low in people suffering from psoriasis and this low level appears to be a contributing factor to the disease. Vitamin D also boosts the immune system in a way that could also explain the improvements seen in psoriasis.

Given the importance of vitamin D in psoriasis as well for general health, supplementation seems critical. Indeed, skin cells naturally produce vitamin D in the presence of sunlight. However, sunlight exposure is often not enough to produce sufficient vitamin D to be be helpful in psoriasis.
