Seasonal allergies are a result of the body over-reacting to environmental allergens that invade the body, like pollen, dust, and molds. While these things aren’t inherently dangerous, the body can categorize them as threats anyway and react in a way that causes imbalance. Even outside of allergy seasons, the skin needs proper care and nourishment to remain healthy. The skin and coat can benefit greatly from the following things:
Krill & anchovy are super great protein-based sources of EPA and DHA (ideal for a carnivore!). They are also very tiny fish, which makes them less of a harbor for high mercury levels. Unlike salmon (which is often used as a source of Omega 3), anchovy and krill are at the bottom of the food chain, so they do not experience the effects of biomagnification quite like salmon do.
Saturated vs. unsaturated fats
Saturated fats break off into long-chain and medium-chain triglycerides (and are generally bad for you in large amounts). Beneath long-chains are the “bad fats”, AKA the ones that really aren’t good for you. Coconut oil comes from the medium-chain triglycerides and is one of the few types of saturated fat that can be good for the body. Unsaturated fats (the “good fats”) split off into monounsaturated and polyunsaturated. Omega 3 and Omega 6 fatty acids fall under the polyunsaturated side.
