Nordic women are known for their natural beauty. Using high-quality skin care is a contributing factor, in addition to a healthy diet that includes an abundance of berries found growing wild in the Nordic forest. The short but intense summer with 24 hours of sunlight packs lingonberries with exceptionally high amounts of antioxidants, plant sterols and essential Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids. In Sweden, Norway and Finland, lingonberry is widely used and well-known as a health-promoting berry.
Among other things, Omega 3 and Omega 6 regulate moisture levels and improve the strength of your skin. Deficiency of these fatty acids leads to dry skin, increased sun sensitivity, pale skin, wrinkles and hyperpigmentation. A classic sign of being deficient in Omega 3 and Omega 6 is having dry skin despite using moisturiser.
The tiny seeds of the lingonberry have been found to contain naturally high quantities of Omega 3 and Omega 6 in a perfect ratio to each other. The omega fatty acids are extracted from the seeds through a special process where they are cold-pressed with carbon dioxide under high pressure. This is an organic and environmentally friendly pressing method; free from solvents, chemicals and contamination.
Just think; an Omega 3 supplement that, in addition to providing all the usual benefits of Omega 3, also reinvigorates your skin!
