4 Supplements for Psoriasis and Eczema

Eczema and psoriasis, autoimmune skin conditions, are linked to gut issues.

Nutraceutical Support for Eczema and Psoriasis

Eczema and psoriasis are now recognized as autoimmune issues. Eczema, also known as atopic dermatitis has an inflammation aspect and psoriasis has abnormal skin growth issues. Since both are autoimmune concerns, their causes come from gut (stomach and intestinal) issues.

What supplements do we recommend for eczema and psoriasis?

  • Extra Strength Probiotic: supports the good bacteria in the gut and crowds out the bad bacteria that may contribute to autoimmune issues.
  • Vital Zinc: helps with wound healing and immune system balance.
  • A D3 K2: supports the immune system and normal skin activity and has anti-inflammatory actions.
  • CurcuExcel Pro: decreases inflammation and helps repair cells.

How much vitamin D3 does a person need to take?

Most adults need 5,000 IU daily or more, but the only way to know for sure is to do a blood test. The vitamin D3 blood test is available from your healthcare provider or through https://www.ultalabtests.com/flourish/shop/items/item/vitamin-d-25-hydroxy-total-immunoassay.

What food items may contribute to eczema and psoriasis?

Since the gut is involved what you eat may be part of the issue.  First, don’t eat the same food every day. That increases the odds of a food sensitivity or allergy contributing to skin issues. Gluten, sweets, sugar, eggs, peanuts are common foods that may contribute to eczema and psoriasis. We recommend the Flourish Food List to help our patients make good food choices.
