Hi guys.

Just wanted to let you know what i noticed the last few days.

I started using 1 / 2 x 550mg B5 by Solgar with really great results. The thing is that each bottle with 50 capsules costs like 27 euros in my country. Kinda expensive i'd say.

So i searched and found B5 by Swanson, 500mg x 250 capsules per bottle for the same price.
I instantly bought that and started using it as i run out of Solgar B5.

So it was alright the first few days but the last 2-3 days now im noticing that the effects of B5 stopped and my skin is coming back like it was before B5 (not so good!). After some searching and reading i found out that other users reported different results with brands as well. Most reccomended is Solgar and Twinlab.

I of course now wait for my (expensive oompf.gif) bottle of Solgar to start using it again and im sure that i will see results again.

Out of curiocity, did anyone try with any other brand than Twinlab and Solgar and had good results? Also, in what quantity every day?

To all you vitamin b5 users out there be very careful and dont over do it i was taking them for roughly 2 years starting at a lower dosage before upping it to 10grams a day for one whole year (crazy i know) and yes i do really regret it because now ive been diagnosed with coeliac disease sad.gif and i know 100% this is what caused it

I come from a very healthy family with no history of coeliac disease so i havent inherited it

I was suffering for 2 years with stomach problems,hair loss,dry skin,constipation,diarrea,fatigue etc without knowing what was wrong i made several trips to the doctors but they couldnt find anything wrong apart from low vit d levels so i had to go on suffering until i came across coeliac disease on the internet and started to make all the connections so i went back to the doctors told them what i thought was wrong and it turns out i have coeliac disease and im also allergic to wheat

Since removing gluten and wheat from my diet ive bin seeing some gradual changes in my hair and skin in a good healthy way

I just wish i had a mature head on my shoulders back then and wouldnt of bin so stupid in taking all them tablets because now i have to live with this forever theres no cure sad.gif

I wish i knew how b5 has caused this could it have changed the way my digestive system works or has it took something out of my body that i needed to break down food i dont know but wish i did

Goodluck to all the rest of you i just hope you dont have to go through what i do and IF you do start to get any of the symptoms i mentioned then get it checked out you could have coeliac disease aswel
