Please, consult a medical professional before taking any vitamins/supplements on your own.
This is nonsense. http://orthomolecula...ns/v07n16.shtml
You do realize that doctors and healthcare professionals take under 10 hours of seminars in "nutrition" in med school? Most of them are completely oblivious to the effectiveness of many vitamins and supplements and ground their beliefs in the insufficient RDA levels. RDA, the amount of a vitamin needed to keep you from dying, but not put you in optimum health.
Yep. Useless. Although if you are taking prescription drugs or have a known ailment you should consult them about any issues. And do your own research. And if you are taking prescription drugs, you should reconsider, know all the negative consequences and do your own research for better solutions. Food is the best medicine, along with sleep, laughter, active lifestyle, etc.
Status: Clear after 30 years. Wow, I guess it's been 6 years, now.
[ Story: Severe Acne since I was 10. 10+ years of Dermatologists, Antibiotics, topicals and ACCUTANE did nothing. Discovered oranges triggered the worst of my cystic acne = about 70% improvement. Tried some nutrient supplements like B-complex with zinc and C, saw palmetto and a BHA like the aspirin mask = more improvement, a lot less oily. Then, Diet changes = Clear.
Regimen: Anti-inflammatory, nutrient dense, blood sugar stabilizing diet and supplements (for hormones, inflammation, aging, health). No soap or other cleanser except for hand washing! Water only or Oil cleanse. Aloe Vera mixed with niacinimide and a high linoleic acid oil for moisturizer and reduce pigmentation.
Diet effects acne in so many ways: hormone balance, inflammation, Insulin levels, digestion, allergies and intolerances, liver function, adrenal function, SHBG levels, sebum quality, cell function and turnover, nutrient deficiencies, body fat, etc. Basic advice: Eat, sleep, supplement and exercise like you are a diabetic. And eat real food!
