Post that question in the fish oil thread to get the best answer. I still am on my first bottle which is a member's mark from Sam's. It does the job, but I want something in liquid form now, which seems cheaper, and more of it.

And yes, things take more than a week to happen. As many things in life, it takes months to see bodily changes. A good example is working out. Let's say you work out and eat right for a good three months, it's only then will you begin to see changes. But with these, it takes less, about a month. Which is a good thing. So keep on keeping on and it will come in time, just go full force, and compliment green tea with efa's (fish) and good things will come, if not a cure, then at least better than where you were before hand

People always think the key to fighting acne is to avoid foods, but in actually it's usually what they're NOT eating that's causing it to happen. It made no sense to start with omitting the small things that MAY cause acne for SOME people. Start with the basics of nutrition. You're a human, not an accumulation of minor problems from every person! Not everyone reacts to the same foods. Not everyone has issues with wheat and such foods. Start with the basics of good nutrition and THEN see what happens, omit foods once you feel something is not working, but don't base a diet off of what to avoid, that will make you malnourished and very depressed when you have nothing left to eat! It is true that some people have issues with some foods, but remember, try it for yourself first :)

Get to the root of the problem, because acne has a relentless and endless arsenal on the surface and it is sadistic.

Testosterone is a steroid hormone from the androgen group. Omega 3 fatty acids can also help to keep the production of androgens under control. Androgens are hormones that influence sebum production and are particularly active during adolescence, which is possibly why many teenagers suffer from acne. Androgen excess may provoke or aggravate acne by inducing seborrhea (sebum). In women, androgen disorders are frequently suspected when acne is accompanied by hirsutism or irregularities of the menstrual cycle. In men, however, acne may be the only sign of androgen excess.

I interpret it as good as you may, but from experience, it's always the marks from current drying actives that seem to go away faster, and the existing blemishes to stay and fade with time, or maybe a bit of both.

Not that I know of, but some people say evening prim rose oil, and flaxseed. But I am not doing that since I am mostly balancing my omega 3 to omega 6.

Good luck man, I hope it works for you, keep us updated on your results as a few days go by, and weeks, etc.

Since you have 100, take 3 a day and see if it starts up faster.

It'll last you exactly one month then smile.gif And a few days.

I think I have asked you, how long have you been on green tea and then green tea extracts? I Know you started the extracts soon, but was it starting to change when you took just green tea?

Eh yeah, I don't know what it is, but I think the green tea and fish oil have pushed my weight down further than I have ever been, and I am already really skinny. Not cool! But it's okay, clear skin > weight right now. Then when I get a hand on things, I will begin working out as hardcore as I eat for my skin.
