Nutrients YOU need but maybe didn’t realize it!

Vitamin A is essential for collagen synthesis and can help treat wrinkles and prevent skin injury and ulcers. A study was done on a group of elderly people living in senior citizen facilities and found that topical retinol (Vitamin A1) application helped improve fine wrinkles associated with natural aging. This was partially due to increased collagen synthesis and better water retention in the skin.

Our skin is constantly bombarded with elements that cause oxidative damage such as UV radiation, smoke, and free radicals. ALA helps to fight the toxins that result from oxidative stress to the skin and lead to photoaging and even skin cancers. ALA is the omega-3 essential fatty acid that you can find in plants and seeds.

Essential fatty acids are potent antioxidants and important for many aspects of our health, including skin care. Essential fatty acids are important in the cell membranes of the skin, as well as in the skin barrier function and preventing inflammation. It can also help in the case of allergic skin diseases, acne and other skin disorders. Generally speaking the western diet is very high in omega 6 fatty acids due to our overconsumption of processed foods. That’s why in order to maintain a healthy ratio of omega 3 to omega 6 we should eat more natural food sources that include but are not limited to fish, pumpkin seeds, flaxseed oil, walnuts and so on.

Vitamin B helps provide important benefits to the skin and a deficiency may lead to different skin defects. A study done with rats showed that they developed different types of skin disorders based on whether they were deprived of B6, B2 or flavin. Another study found that deficiency in vitamins B2 and B6 affected the maturity of collagen in the skin and may be related to skin lesions. Vitamin B2 and Vitamin B6 can be found in whole grains, spinach, liver, and dairy products.

Vitamin C and E are both strong antioxidants and therefore useful in combatting oxidative stress in our skin. Vitamin C and E are often used in combination. Together, these two vitamins have been found to possess photoprotective properties. These vitamins are also able to protect against skin cancers. Vitamin C is found in many fruits and vegetables such as oranges, green peppers, watermelon and berries. The best source of vitamin E is wheat germ but it can also be found in liver, eggs, nuts, sunflower seeds, sweet potatoes, avocado and asparagus.

Bottom Line

Following a diet that includes these vitamins and nutrients will help prevent a number of skin disorders and improve its overall complexion as well as help facilitate its function in protecting us from environmental pollutants and damage.

Organic Vs Conventional: A study confirms our crops provide more nutrients through organic farming

The organic vs. conventional debate: Organic onions boast more antioxidants after a six-year study found more antioxidant activity and higher flavonol content in #organic onions over #conventional onions. The question of whether organic food is any more nutritious than conventional has been a long-running and heated debate.

One of the latest developments in this ongoing debate, however, suggests it is. Researchers in Ireland have found in an experiment that onions grown organically contained higher antioxidant levels than their non-organic counterparts. It’s a relatively narrow finding, but significant because of the duration of study, which is said to be the longest-running focused on the organic vs. conventional question.

For the study, published recently in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry, the research team grew two onion varieties—“Red Baron” and “Hyskin”—in a variety of conditions between 2009 and 2014. They analyzed levels of antioxidants and other compounds associated with various health benefits, and found higher antioxidant levels in both types of onions when grown using organic practices. The organic onions also had up to 20 percent higher flavonol content than the conventional crop. The researchers attributed the differences mainly to different soil management practices.
