Yes, especially the sardines, and the salmon provided its lid caught. There's also canned mackerel. You want to eat low on the food chain when it comes to fish. Small, oily fish. Tuna are not small, are not that great a source of omega 3s, are over fished and unsustainable, and catching them means killing lots of other animals.
fresh sardines are extremely hard to fine. If you find canned sardines that have no added ingredients, I think they are okay (heck I eat them 4-5x a week\)
I can get sardines. They are of course frozen, which s really the only way you want to get commercially caught fish these days. Lash frozen on the boat.
Status: Clear after 30 years. Wow, I guess it's been 6 years, now.
[ Story: Severe Acne since I was 10. 10+ years of Dermatologists, Antibiotics, topicals and ACCUTANE did nothing. Discovered oranges triggered the worst of my cystic acne = about 70% improvement. Tried some nutrient supplements like B-complex with zinc and C, saw palmetto and a BHA like the aspirin mask = more improvement, a lot less oily. Then, Diet changes = Clear.
Regimen: Anti-inflammatory, nutrient dense, blood sugar stabilizing diet and supplements (for hormones, inflammation, aging, health). No soap or other cleanser except for hand washing! Water only or Oil cleanse. Aloe Vera mixed with niacinimide and a high linoleic acid oil for moisturizer and reduce pigmentation.
Diet effects acne in so many ways: hormone balance, inflammation, Insulin levels, digestion, allergies and intolerances, liver function, adrenal function, SHBG levels, sebum quality, cell function and turnover, nutrient deficiencies, body fat, etc. Basic advice: Eat, sleep, supplement and exercise like you are a diabetic. And eat real food!
