Heard about vitamin F? Don’t worry if you haven’t, it’s just another word for fatty acids, which are as essential to your health as nearly any other vitamin or mineral and can be vital to vibrant healthy skin.
If you want to know a bit more about what these fatty acids do, here’s a piece from ModernMom about the importance.
What They Are
A discussion of fatty acids, or vitamin F, is most often about omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids. These are polyunsaturated fats from animal, plant, fruit and vegetable sources. These fatty acids come in the form of docosahexaenoic acid, eicosapentaenoic acid, linoleic acid, gamma linoleic acid or alpha linolenic acid. You may find these names on the packaging of foods, but you are more likely to find their more general categories–omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids.
What They Do
These acids are important for cell building and brain function, but vitamin F is good for your skin, too. According to the University of Maryland Medical Center, these acids help build skin cells and encourage skin cell growth. This is good for blemishes, scars or other superficial concerns when you want new, fresh skin to hurry up. This stimulation will also help your skin have a healthy glow as old skin is more quickly sloughed off and replaced with fresh skin. One of the first signs of a lack of vitamin F in your diet is dull, dry skin. Fatty acids play a critical role in keeping your skin moist and elastic.
