Just got my 21oz tub from VitaCost, came faster than expected.
There is a 3 gram scoop, should I start with 1 scoop twice daily? The recommended dose is 1 gram twice daily.
P.S. My acne is fairly under control thanks to resveratrol, light wave CS, acnomel and limited sugar consumption with no milk, or COFFEE. I still get random pimples that tend to scar, or leave bad hyper pigmentation especially around my chin. SO even if I only have one pimple on my face it is really frustrating because I know it will stick around for a while. In my past I have been on accutane twice, the second time low dosing for close to a year.
I am fairly confident that my acne is related to digestion. Resveratrol got me pretty clear, but I am suspicious that its extreme laxative effect was what improved my skin. I also have low energy levels and inattentive ADD and I cant help but think all of these issues are intertwined.
If this supplement can clear me completely and allow me to eat what I want without feeling guilty, or self conscious then I owe you one to say the least. Restricted diets are not my style, I love food too much!
I think you're right.
I heard a family physician who has gotten into natural theories explain it this way.
Sometimes we have 20 different symptoms but the root cause could be candida or gut dysbiosis. We get overwhelmed by all of these symptoms and if you put all of your trust in the average family physician, or in my case, the dermatologist, they just weren't taught about these matters, even though the science has been pretty much settled about it.
For example.....I have been into natural health since the early 90s and did my first candida cleanse back in '91. Waaaaaaaaaaaayyyyyyyyyyyyyyy back then, BELIEVE IT OR NOT, probiotics was "controversial" to the medical establishment!! Can you believe it? Now, we have yogurt commercials advertising "active cultures"! When I would tell people that seratonin is mostly contained in their gut, AND that their immune system is generated in their gut, they would tell me I was a kook! Yet this is fact!
Believe me guys....the original medical doctor who wrote the very first book about candida, Dr. William Crook, was called every name in the book back in the late 80s.
Colostrum isn't a magic bullet, but if you have done pretty much everything and still have to eat restrictively, you should give it a shot. One great thing about it too is it greatly boosts seratonin levels and you feel fantastic while on it. I remember while first taking it and I had the biggest brain buzz. I just felt fantastic. I was looking at the sky and clouds just feeling so alive. It was really oddly refreshing.
I know that sounds weird but I was somewhat used to feeling tired all the time. To feel so radically different, happy, and alive...was just awesome. Like I said....I take it for many reasons; firstly immunity, but right up there is how good you feel emotionally while taking it. Oh! I started sleeping better, too!
I think you can start with a scoop a day. As you can see, one full serving is 1/3 of a scoop. There is over 600 servings in one cansiter. My son actually took 2 scoops a day at one time and is now down to the normal serving size.
Keep us updated and good luck.
