5 foods that improve Psoriasis and 5 foods that make it worse

Psoriasis is a chronic condition that occurs when skin cells grow so quickly that they accumulate, resulting in flakes, red spots, and dry patches that cause burning, itching, and irritation. Symptoms worsen when the person suffers from infections, stress and viruses such as the flu.

Studies show that psoriasis is an immune system problem that affects 2% of the world's population. Psoriasis is a non-contagious disease that has no cure, however, its symptoms are not always present and occur in cycles. During the active phase , which can last weeks or months, the person feels the discomfort mentioned above. Upon entering the passive phase , the lesions disappear.

Below we show you some of the foods and habits that, together with the Dermaccina Psoriasis treatment, help reduce the symptoms of psoriasis and prevent the disease itself:

5 foods that improve psoriasis:

  • Fish oil: Omega-3 or polyunsaturated fatty acids reduce arachidonic acid and are also anti-inflammatory. It is also a natural moisturizer that helps regenerate the skin, preventing dryness.
  • Mono-unsaturated fatty acids (MUFA): They are in extra virgin olive oil and help reduce inflammation.
  • Vitamins A, E, D and C: Taking vitamin supplements helps combat symptoms and prevent acute outbreaks. Vitamins C and E act as antioxidants while D promotes the absorption of calcium and phosphorus and vitamin A plays an important role in maintaining healthy skin. Each of these works in the correct functioning of our organisms.
  • Zinc: A dose of 30 mg to 90 mg of Zinc per day may be sufficient to prevent psoriasis. Zinc is a micronutrient that acts by regulating gene function. Studies have shown that a Zinc deficiency is one of the main causes of skin diseases such as psoriasis.
  • Diet high in vegetables and fruits: People who suffer from psoriasis are recommended to eat a diet high in antioxidants as they reduce skin inflammation. Vegetables and fruits have high levels of vitamins therefore they can act as antioxidants. In the case of fruits, you should make sure to choose fruits that do not contain excess sugar.

5 foods that make psoriasis worse:

  • Gluten: Barley and rye are proteins found in wheat that feed serious psoriasis symptoms such as skin inflammation.
  • Dairy: Dairy products contain arachidonic acid, a component that contributes to the activation of the acute symptoms of psoriasis, forming common skin lesions of this disease. Milk, for example, can be replaced with plant-based drinks.
  • Red meat: Like dairy products, red meat contains the same component, arachidonic acid, affecting the improvement of psoriasis symptoms. They also contain high levels of saturated fats that affect the skin's healing process.
  • Alcohol and tobacco: Cardiovascular risks are elevated in patients with psoriasis and these substances increase the risk of contracting them. In addition, studies show that drinking alcohol increases the risk of suffering from psoriasis for the first time.
  • Processed products: Those packaged, canned or products that are known to have high amounts of preservatives, high levels of sodium and sugars, are a threat to the improvement of psoriasis symptoms by causing greater inflammation.

With these tips and also with the constant use of the psoriasis treatment Dermaccina Psoriasis Cream & Spray , your symptoms can greatly improve and enter the passive phase in which you will no longer suffer from signs of psoriasis for an indefinite period.
