Dr. Perricone claims it does in his book, but you have to eat a crazy amount. Not only would it be expensive (he says to eat only the wild alskan kind) but you'd have to worry about toxins in the fish. If you are trying to concieve, pregnant, or breastfeeding you're supposed to limit your fish intake so you couldn't eat the amount he reccommend safely

It's the omega 3 fatty acids. They are readily digestible in fish, unlike in plants where some may not be able to convert them. Taking fish oil is economical and effective. For about $3 a month you can get all the omega 3 you need this way. Take the fish oil in liquid form not in the liquid gel caps.

I get mine from bodybuilding.com It's health From the Sun ultra omega 3(Lemon Lime flavour). The shipping is extremely cheap to Canada so I imagine it's even better in the states. I got about 4 months worth including shipping for $14.

you don't need to eat alot of salmon to see the benefits. i eat a 7ounce salmon steak for dinner with vegetables and then wait for 20 minutes -- you will notice your skin changing to a very nice texture

for those worried about the cost of alaskan salmon you might consider buying bulk from an online source. ive been checking in to this lately and i found a couple sources that sell alaskan for around $7.00/lb. even with shipping it works out to less than 10 bucks a pound. at the supermarket the alaskan can range from $14 to $17/lb.

alaskan salmon is supposed to be relatively low in pollutants (or so i read) compared to other wild salmon, and especially compared to farmed salmon. and did you know that farmed salmon would actually be grey if it werent for the pink dye in their feed?

its important not to over-cook salmon and other meats. low temperatures will limit the production of heterocyclic amines and other carcinogens. heterocyclic amines arise when amino acids and creatine in the meat combine at high temperatures. also the charred surface of burnt meat is full of carcinogens. there are studies linking regular consumption of burnt or well-done meat with higher rates of cancer.

I know Salmon is awesome, but I believe Tuna works as well, or the white albacore types at least.

I eat Tuna at least once a day, usually 2

I have heard that salmon is great for skin... but I believe it cotains iodine, which is a no no for ppl with acne.

Tuna and Salmon contain high levels of mercury, which is not good for you at all. So i wouldn't be eating a lot of it. just a heads up.

Albacore tuna is actually the more toxic kind of tuna. Here is a link to the FDA website about fish and mercury.

Yes I heard it is good to minimize your intake of fish due to the Mercury found in fish mainly albacore tuna.

Is Salmon from the can ok?

Like chicken of the sea brand of salmon?

does it have to be pink salmon?

honestly, I'd be scared to touch the salmon in a can with a 10 ft pole (scared as in blech, not scared as in worried for my health). Canned meat/fish tends to be VERY disgusting. (The good parts of the fish are being sold for $7-10/lb at the deli, they generally can what's left over and only a little good meat/fish..ie what people won't normally buy if they can look at it first and/or can afford better). I haven't compared brands of canned salmon though (I think I've only seen one brand of canned salmon-don't remember what it was, several brands of canned chicken and tuna).

The canned stuff is definately going to be farmed salmon. In most grocery stores, even the stuff at the deli will normally be farmed salmon (at least my local grocery store explicitly states "farmed salmon" under it, which I appreciate).
99.5% Clear (skin gets 'congested' PMS week, but no actual breakouts)
---------------------------
Fragrance-Free Baby Wipes + a few drops Rimmel Makeup Remover solution
3/4 AHA Toner* & 1/4 Glycerin (cotton pad) -- good toner, moisturizer, and makeup base (use less glycerin if not under makeup)
Occasional Treatments (2-3x/week): Exfoliating bp wash* in shower, 2.5% bp lotion* at night
CoverGirl TruBlend Powder Foundation
---------------------------
* = Klear Action Kit (Pro-Activ knockoff)

Gluten-free diet (for non-acne reasons, but it seems to have cleared my acne)

I thought mercury levels were so low in these fish that the only people affected would be a pregnant women's baby, and even then in HUGE quantities.... I wish I found that link...

Anyways, salmon and tuna (albacore) are great, I eat them all the time.

Know what else is good and it is cheap and you don't have to worry about toxins since they are small - sardines. Sardines in either hot sauce or mustard, don't do the ones canned in oil. At WalMart they are .47 cents a can! My son eats those now and Omega 3 Eggs. In addition, he has cut out all sugars, wheats, grains (occasional brown rice and quinoa) and anything processed. He lives on ground turkey breasts, turkey breast steaks, other lean meats, sardines, mahi mahi, kippers, eggs, shrimp, oysters, squid, all the vegetables he wants, all the fruit he wants. He went from cystic acne to almost totally clear in a few weeks. In fact, it was one month this Sunday. I highly recommend trying this and seeing if you are one of the ones who sensitive to the insulin reaction that processed refined foods have. That in turn makes for more surges in hormones. He looks so much better I can't believe it. Try it and see. He was cursed for sooooo long and went through every treatment from antibiotics, to 3 laser/levulan treatments, creams, etc.........
