Controlling oil with.... lactoferrin!phenol
Posted 12 March 2011 - 06:14 AM
The key point is that a reduction in sebum was found through taking lactoferrin: a milk protein.
I'm about to start a 400mg per day experiment of lactoferrin and see if there's a reduction in sebum.
My sebum is out of control and systemic retinoids and topical polyphenols are unfortunately out of the question for me!

I've been taking Life Extension lactoferrin, 2 to 4 caps at 300 mg each, for over a month now, and my acne has actually gotten worse. I don't understand it at all. I believe the lactoferrin cleared up an infection from a sliver in my toe that a doctor tried to take out but couldn't, and another doctor told me I would have to take antibiotics or I could lose my toe, but I decided to wait to see if the lactoferrin would work, so I really think it did, but I would say my face is even oilier now.
The other thing I do not understand is I have also been taking copious amounts of betaine hcl for the past few weeks. I started with the incremental hcl test for low stomach acid and am able to take 7 capsules (500 mg) with a high protein meal, then I got a brand with pepsin and take one of those with 5-6 of the other, and I also take 1 digestive enzyme capsule at the same time.
My diet is pretty good, I don't eat any gluten and even avoid the GF stuff, I juice raw veggies every day, I drink lots of water and take vitamin A and it's the same or better than before, so I do not understand why my skin is worsening. I also take vitex to balance my hormones and I take magnesium and use pureed prunes instead of sugar and they keep me very regular.
I am so frustrated.
