Omega 3 deficiency manifests itself in other areas too: dry, cracked skin, brittle hair and nails, and joint pain are all classic symptoms. Modern diets typically contain insufficient quantities of Omega 3. This is because Omega 3 EFAs are easily damaged by heat, air and light. Since most meals today are heated or processed our food contains too little Omega 3.
Supplementing our diet with 1-2 tablespoons of flax oil daily helps correct this Omega 3 deficiency, and alleviates the associated symptoms.
