    Canola oil isn’t the oil we use for cooking especially frying?

    Yes I'm talking about the usual canola oil you may find at the groceries store. The reason why I take canola oil is that studies show that lutein is better absorbed by the body when you take it with some fat food:

    «For example, the consumption of fat (in the form of a salad dressing, cooking oil such as extra virgin olive oil, or whole eggs) at the same meal as carotenoid intake (e.g., a raw vegetable salad or cooked vegetables) has been shown to effectively increase the absorption of some carotenoids»

    Default report after 2 weeks

    It's been two (2) weeks now since I started to take Lutein/zeaxanthin (10 mg). I have had in the last few days a couple of « very tiny» bumps, which were gone the day after. This can't be compared at all to my previous situation. I can't claim to have a total remission, but the improvement is so great, that I will be the happiest men on earth if things stay as they are.

    I would greatly appreciate to know if some of you have started to take this supplement and how your skin reacts. In my case, the improvement was noticeable very quickly.

    Good luck to all.

    Hi Marcello, Congratulations on your success! It's so great when we get some relief from this skin condition.

    I'm wondering though - did you start the canola oil when you started the Lutein? I ask because I've noticed that people with rosacea often find some relief when taking certain oils. Borage, flaxseed, evening primrose oil, etc. This has been my case recently. I started taking flaxseed oil in capsule form - several a day - I'd say anywhere from 4-7 1000 mg capsules of Jarrow's brand flaxseed oil. I also have read on this forum and elsewhere that people who take the oil in tablespoon form have done really well - because they're getting more.

    It's made me start wondering if certain oils help our condition because the oil is in a sense moisturizing, soothing and coating our skin from the inside. I cant remember where I read it now - but I read where some skin doctor mentioned that the internal oil you're taking helps plug up our damaged skin barriers - essentially filling the holes.

    What I've noticed is that my skin is lighter and just feels very well moisturized and pillowy - versus that awful dry burny skin feeling.

    It hasn't taken rosacea away - I'm probably not taking much either - but it's helping enough that I'm thinking about buying the liquid kind to take as a tablespoon or two. Also I might try evening primrose oil as well. But I kind of thing it's just the oil itself - granted you wanted a healthy one - but I think it's the format that helps the most.

    Anywho, that's why I asked about the canola oil. I've also tried a similar Lutein supplement and didn't have success with it the way I have with flaxseeed.

    Yes, I started to take canola oil at the same time in order to increase lutein's absorption (see one of my previous post on this thread), but I was already taking omega 3 supplement before I started the lutein, without any relief.

    I honestly would be very surprised that canola oil is responsible for what is happening to me, apart from the fact that it helps the lutein and zeaxanthin to be absorbed by my body. Given the fact that lutein and zeaxanthin are strong antioxydants, I think that they just block the oxydative process of the free radicals that could be responsible for my rosacea.

    By the way, did you take your lutein with some fat food (like canola oil) at the time? If not, it could explain that it wasn't well absorbed by your body. Moreover, it seems that lutein is more effective when coupled with zeaxanthin. Hope it answers your question.

    Default Thanks - this supplement helped my tear glands work after occular rosacea!

    Marcello,

    Thank you so very much for posting the original article in this thread!

    4 days ago I started taking a Lutein (10 mg) + Zeaxanthin (2 mg) supplement to help my meibomian glands and eyelids recover from inflammation caused by occular rosacea / blepharitis demodex. There are a number of articles on the web with doctors recommending Lutein+Zeaxanthin+Omega 3 supplements for blepharitis patients to reduce the lid inflammation.

    I had blepharitis demodex / occular rosacea for many years as it was misdiagnosed as "allergic conjunctivitis". Treatment with oral ivermectin and oral metronidazole finally cleared up the demodex infestation. But my lids were still swollen with the meibomian glands not functioning very well.

    Its amazing! My meibomian glands are making the oily tear film much more easily now. And my eyelids feel and look less swollen. My vision seems much sharper as well. Having a working oily tear film really helps the eyes!
