Psoriasis is influenced by: environmental factors (infections and stress), poor dietary and exercise habits, smoking, alcohol consumption and food intolerances such as gluten sensitivity.
This chronic disease has potential systemic complications such as abnormal plasma lipid metabolism, cardiovascular disease, hypertension, chronic systemic inflammation, obesity, higher body mass index, nutritional deficiencies and even nutrient-drug interactions.
Because of the many treatment-related adverse events, patients with psoriasis are often unsatisfied with traditional medical treatments and are turning to the use of alternative and complementary medicine such as nutritional supplements.
Supplementation with antioxidants coenzyme Q(10), vitamin E, and selenium could be feasible for the management of patients with severe forms of psoriasis.
