Our skin, being the largest organ we have and also visible, is one fantastic indicator when we are in good health and also when we aren’t! It can affect our daily life in so many ways like self-confidence, maybe the clothes you wear, even where your family vacation might be. Having Psoriasis can be a frustrating thing for people that suffer from it. There are specific links between vitamin deficiency and psoriasis, and this is how Nutritionally Yours can help you get back to having superstar self- confidence!
Psoriasis is a malfunction of the immune system which occurs when skin cells have an abnormal replication rate. Psoriasis causes the skin cells to divide ten times faster than in the healthy skin. Because of this rapid replication, skin cells can’t shed so they accumulate which causes the silvery scale skin. If the immune system is weak or if digestion is not functioning correctly one result can be psoriasis.
Common vitamin deficiencies that are linked to Psoriasis and healthy skin are:
Deficiencies in Vitamins A and D CAN trigger a psoriasis attack!
Omega-3 fatty acid
Omega 6 fatty acids
Take the guesswork out of taking vitamins. ONLY take the vitamins YOUR body needs. Simple vitamin deficiency testing, to find the correct amounts of the vitamins and minerals your body may be lacking, could begin a fantastic change in your life and your skin!
Consider the Vitamin Test Kit Plus Omega 3 Index when ordering to check ALL of your essential fatty acids.
Remember, your body can heal itself given the proper nutrients!
