    Can omega 3 cause skin breakouts?


    I'm just looking to gain a little more knowledge around Omega 3. If your happy to help or could provide me with some more information please read below.

    At 18, 10 and a half stone only 5ft 3 I am unfortunately classed as obese. I've recently made some changes to my diet, all for the better.

    I'm a very fussy eater and usually eat a lot of processed and unhealthy foods. I wouldn't say I've started dieting just making some healthier choices. One of these is a freshly made smoothie for breakfast every morning.

    Amongst various fruits I have been adding 1 heaped table spoon of ground flax seeds & goji berries.

    I have never ever suffered from any form of breakouts even through the earliest part of my teenage years, but now, when my diet changes for the better I am getting quite a few large spots on my face (mostly around the chin and jaw line area if his makes a difference)

    The only think I can think that is possibly causing this is the flax seeds which I have added to my diet. Prior to this, because I am a fussy eater and don't like fish I will probably have had no Omega 3 what so ever in my diet.

    My final question, could flax seeds be causing my breakouts? Is this a logical explanation. I should be feeling better about my healthier lifestyle but it's just making me feel uncomfortable about myself. Please help

    It could be the flax seeds. One way to find out is to stop eating them for 3 or 4 days to see if the spots go away.
