Benefits of Omega 3, 6, 9: Cheryl’s X Factor fish oil secret

If it’s good enough for Cheryl, it’s good enough for us. News reveals that the X Factor guest judge uses supplements to ensure she gets her fix of fish oils to keep that trademark glow with her busy schedule.

She includes Omega 3, 6 and 9 in her daily dose of vitamins.

She told The Mirror the one product she can’t live without is “fish oil capsules, because if you’re eating right it will show in your skin.”

Nutritionist Cassandra Barns said: “As well as being necessary for our heart, brain and eye health, omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids play an essential role in the structure and appearance of the skin.
“They are incorporated into cell membranes in the epidermis (the top layer of skin) and form a matrix around the cells, helping to maintain the skin’s barrier function and prevent moisture loss.
“They are also thought to have a role in the dermis – the lower layer of skin – by controlling inflammation and minimising collagen damage from UV rays.”
“It can be beneficial to take a good quality supplement, such as Super
Omega 3-6-9 by Quest Nutra Pharma (£12.19, www.qnutrapharma.com ),”
adds Cassandra.
Fish oils also have the following benefits, according to The Sun:

Omega-3 supplements are prescribed to help conditions including:

  • ADHD
  • Cancer
  • Diabetes
  • High cholesterol
  • Infertility
  • IBD (inflammatory bowel disease)
  • Alzheimer’s disease
  • Depression
  • Macular degeneration
  • Skin issues (eczema and psoriasis)
  • Inflammation
  • Arthritis
  • Anxiety

Of course, if any of the above conditions are serious, you must consult your GP. But if you don’t eat fish, or just generally have an unbalanced diet, supplements are a simple way to give your body a boost.
