ARE SUPPLEMENTS NECESSARY FOR TREATING PSORIASIS AND VITILIGO?

Drugs pose certain risks that include potential side effects ranging from mild to severe and this is why psoriasis patients are often concerned about the long-term use of conventional drugs. It makes sense to try different kind of therapies that do not cause long term side effects since psoriasis is a chronic condition that is likely to affect you for a quite some time. Psoriasis and vitiligo sufferers are often lured into taking conventional drugs because of their rapid effect. However, patients are not generally informed about the long-term side effects that can occur especially with systematic drugs.

Adding certain specialized dietary supplements to your daily regime has many benefits. Dietary health supplements can be concentrates or extracts, and they can occur in many forms, such as capsules, soft gels, tablets, gel caps, powders or liquids. Some patients find that including supplements and vitamins in their diet help to allow the skin to heal much faster and keep their skin clear. You can safely use 100% natural dietary supplements even if you are taking conventional medications. Dietary supplements do not cause side effects and do not have a rapid effect with psoriasis, which is why you will probably need to take them for several months to see improvements.

Your best initial approach is to take high-potency multivitamin along with a potent antioxidant supplement daily. You need to make sure your multivitamin contains vitamins A and C. Good multivitamins also contain adequate levels of vitamin B12. These are all important for healthy skin growth and repair. Antioxidants and Omega-3supplements are very important to reduce inflammation and combat free-radical damage. Zinc deficiency is common for vitiligo patients. Zinc supports a healthy immune system, fights diabetes (an autoimmune condition commonly associated with vitiligo), fights cancer and helps heal and repair tissues, bones and muscles. Many people suffering from psoriasis and vitiligo are sensitive to the sun and this is because of some conventional treatments. This is why incorporating vitamin Din your diet is highly recommended. The best sources of vitamin D include wild fish such as salmon, tuna and mackerel, cod liver oil, eggs and mushroom.

  • Sulphur:

    KIKI Health Organics MSM Powder

    MSM (methyl-sulfonyl-methane) is an organic sulphur compound, which is the largest nutrient found in the human body. It is also commonly found in other foods such as vegetables and meat. Sulphur is undeniably one of the most important nutrients required by our body. It has several prevention and healing properties for the human body. MSM provides a detoxification effect as it in increases the cells’ capability to flush out excess fluids and toxins. It makes way for essential nutrients into your system thereby improving the overall functioning of your cell membranes.

    Psoriasis patients swear by MSM as it produces generous quantities of keratin and collagen.

  • Probiotics

    KIKI Health Body Biotics

    Probiotics are live microbes that are considered good for your body. Psoriasis patients often have higher amounts of inflammation-causing bacteria in their intestines. Incorporating beneficial bacteria to your diet might balance your intestine’s bacterial mix. Probiotics stimulate the body’s T cells, which are responsible for regulating the immune system that in turns helps in reducing inflammation. Psoriasis patients also experience reduced skin inflammation.

    One of the known possible causes of vitiligo is viruses and bacteria. In an ideal world, every human being would have all of the balanced microbiomes and there would be no need for supplements. However, our modern diet full of processed foods, use of certain medications and overuse of antibiotics deplete our microbiomes. Replenishing our body with these beneficial bacteria can help restore our balance and provide support to your overall health.

    Other common sources of probiotics for the treatment of psoriasis and vitiligo: Yoghurt, fermented cheese, sourdough bread.

  • Vitamin A

    KIKI Health Organic Nature’s Living Superfood&Organic Wheatgrass Powder

    The main ingredients in KIKI’s Nature’s Living Superfood are organic wheatgrass and organic horsetail stem which are all highly beneficial for psoriasis and vitiligo.

    Organic Wheatgrass is a good source of Vitamin A, which is commonly used to treat psoriasis by reducing overproduction of skin cells. Vitamin A can also help stop and re-pigmentation vitiligo spots thanks to its antioxidant properties. It also helps reducing the oxidative stress in the cells of the skin such as melanocytes.

    Organic horsetail is known as the richest source of silicon found in nature. Silicon is what collagen is made of. It is highly effective in treating irritation, inflammation and itching. It has wound healing and anti-inflammatory properties that can also be effective with eczema and psoriasis lesions.

    Other sources of vitamin A are: Carrot, Turnip, Papaya, Grapefruit, Spinach, Kale, and Sweet Potato.

  • Zinc and Vitamin B12

    KIKI Health Spirulina and Chlorella Powder (Also available in Tablets)

    Vitamin B12 is present in great quantities in algae plants such as spirulina and chlorella. Many important biological processes in the human body, including nervous system function and red blood cell formation require vitamin B12. It is highly recommended for people suffering with vitiligo and psoriasis. It may help prevent depression, a common side effect of a Vitiligo and psoriasis diagnosis.

    Both psoriasis and vitiligo patients suffer from zinc deficiency. Zinc is considered important owing to its antioxidant properties which help in having healthy skin. Sufficient presence of zinc is important as it plays an important role in the process of melanogenesis. It may be effective in the treatment and prevention of vitiligo.

    Other sources of Vitamin B12: Animal products including fish, meat, eggs and Milk products

    Other sources of Zinc: Pumpkin seeds, Chickpeas, Watermelon, Garlic and Dark Chocolate

  • Vitamin C

    KIKI Health Organic Baobab Powder, Organic Camu Camu Powder, Goji Berry Powder, Acai Powder, Acerola Powder

    Like vitamin B12 and zinc, many psoriasis and vitiligo patients are also deficient in vitamin C. Vitamin C is essential to fight free radicals, help slow cell damage and to build the collagen necessary for joints, ligaments, skin and healthy bones. Antioxidants can be a powerful adjunct in the treatment of psoriasis and vitiligo, by preventing damage associated with oxidative stress. The level of antioxidants (substances that help prevent the oxidative damage) in people suffering from vitiligo have been found to be abnormally low.Ultimately, the cells are unable to cope and start deteriorating hence ensuing vitiligo.
    The destruction of melanocytes in conditions such as vitiligo has been attributed to oxidative stress exerted on cells by factors like free radicals which eventually cause irreversible oxidative damage. Free radicals are generated as a result of environmental stress. Vitamin C possesses the ability to block the harmful effects of oxidants on melanocytes with its potent antioxidant properties. Oxidative damage can hence be stopped in its tracks before reaching the irreversible range. If you start incorporating vitamin C in your diet, the cells can start to stabilize themselves and start imparting colour to the skin.
    Other source of Vitamin C: Consume fresh, organic fruits and vegetables.

  • Vitamin D

    The role of vitamin D in healing autoimmune diseases such as vitiligo and psoriasis cannot be over emphasized. It is scientifically considered to affect cell growth. With the right level of Vitamin D, cellular growth can be controlled hence causing the abnormal speed of cellular growth of a psoriatic patient to stabilize.
    T cells, a type of white blood cells, play a key role in the immune system. It fights off disease causing foreign matters like viruses, bacteria and fungi. In case of autoimmune problems, the T cells get stressed, imbalanced and overreacts hence resulting in autoimmune response-attacking body’s own cells. Vitamin D helps by regulating the t cells, it makes your immune system smarter in a way that it can differentiate between the body’s own cells and foreign invaders. It also reduces inflammation in the gut and has also been proved to repair the leaky gut.
    Best sources of Vitamin D: Sunlight, Cod Liver Oil, Sardines, Salmon, Eggs, Mushroom and Raw Milk.
