Wooah, flashback post of my unhealthy days lol.

B-complexes back then seemed to break me out, but now Garden of Life's food based b complex doesn't cause me problems. As to why, no concrete ideas, though I'd wager I was dealing with major systemic inflammation. Lol, back then I took so many supplements, didn't want t believe in the diet/lifestyle/acne connection. Shame!!!!!

B Vitamin health supplements is actually a set of nutritional vitamins that has niacin, thiamine, riboflavinB-6, folic acid b vitamin, B-12, choline, biotin and panthotenic acid. A few of the potential benefits of b nutritional vitamins consist of higher energy levels, increased or maybe more constant emotional behavior, much healthier epidermis, hair and sight. The natural vitamins are necessary for accurate central nervous system and immune mechanism operation.

Honestly, good sums of the vitamin b complex class set are required regularly to ensure the right purpose of some systems within the body anatomy. Niacin (during the vitamin b complex collection set) can be found in nearly every cell within the body. Inappropriate quantities of niacin inside the eating habits can cause dermatitis (moistureless, scratchy, infected epidermis), muscles discomfort, cramping pains, weakness, sleeping disorder, stomach upset, emotional difficulties, lesions during the oral cavity and appetite loss.

One other vitally important portion of the b complex collection is folic acid b vitamin, recognised till not too long ago as folate. Sound males and females older than Thirteen might need not less than 400 mg on a daily basis. Women that are currently pregnant or breastfeeding will need more to help the development requirements of small children. Inadequacies could lead to a range of studying impairments and growing disorders.

Virtually no higher restraints have already been founded on the vitamin b complex class set. Basically no overdose implications have already been known, apart from immediately following intravenous treatment of prescription levels. After consumed orally, your system uses precisely what it desires and excretes all that remains.

I'm pretty sure the B-complex broke me out, so I feel the OP's pain. Then again, it could have been any number of other things. 9___9

I'm still oscillating on whether or not B5 is a good idea for me. I think I'll settle that score like this: go visit a nutritionist / herbalist. Have some guidance. Ya dig?

Animal Pak never broke me out although that very well could have been because of the million and one other amino acids, minerals, enzymes and herbs in it.
After suffering with acne since age 11, finally found my triggers 11 years later.
Clear for almost 1 year & in control of my acne, although due to some hyperpigmentation, I believed I was still breaking out. In fact, I thought I had just cleared up a few months ago, but after realizing my "breakouts" were simply scarring I also realized I was technically clear for much longer than I thought. Rare breakouts only whenever I get lazy with my diet.

The Cure for Acne:
-Avoid the Acne Trifecta: Soy, Gluten, and Dairy like the plague.
-Eat a Low-GI diet and avoid Sugar.
-Get lots of green vegetables and sunshine.
-Supplement whenever possible. Due to how much we've ruined food in the past 60 years, the amount of nutrients found in food nowadays is lower than it was decades ago.
-Exercise, get sunshine, and avoid stressful situations.
-Don't fear food. Go out & eat. It's not good for the skin, but it's good for the soul.

fwiw: b vitamins werent my problem. i havent taken a mutlivitamin or a b-complex in at least a month and my skin issue have not changed. none of my other habits have changed, and back when i was taking a multivitamin and/or a b-complex, i still had the same issues i have now.

so b-complex vitamins will not make EVERYONE break out. this thread title is misleading. the message should be about moderation and getting your RDA of vit b --- in all its forms -- via a healthy diet.

B vitamins totally break me out! Especially in fortified gluten free cereals and kids multi-vitamins!

OK here's the deal: I've been an acne.org member for actually 14 years. FOURTEEN LONG YEARS. And this is what I found out:

  • - B-Complex DOES cause acne. (May be due to intestinal permeability / "Leaky Gut" / intestinal hyperpermeability - YES this is a real condition, not quack, ask Dr. Galland, MD)
  • - Biotin alone does cause acne
  • - CHEESE, PROBIOTICS, COW's MILK, any Animal milk, CREAM, SOUR CREAM ALL yield acne, at least for me AND MY SISTER. They probably come out to the bloodstream as foreign because of leaky gut again. To close up leaky gut, you need to be on a strict gluten-free diet and take Omega-3 (enteric) + glutamine
  • - TAURINE gives me acne too - maybe large or small enough molecule to pass through the gut into the bloodstream like the dairy products.


Eggs and butter are fine for me.

Try this experiment and EAT CHEESE, CREAM, COW'S MILK + WHEAT all month long. Even the people I know who don't get acne do get one at a time on the chin after they ate a ton of dairy products.
