Estroblock blocks estrogen and raises testosterone.
Most hormonal acne treatments involve LOWERING testosterone, sometimes raising estrogen and/or progesterone. Ever heard the term "androgenic activity causes acne"? Well, Estroblock will definitely increase your androgenic activity.
Estroblock is the opposite of what you want.
Where did you hear estroblock increases androgenic activity ? It's supposed to solely detox bad estrogens and everything in turn balances back out. From everything I've read it decreases excess androgens.
I read that too, especially on bodybuilding websites, but higher free testosterone can actually mean lower DHT because an increase in free testosterone could mean that it's not binding to DHT receptors anymore.
All the studies I found on DIM point to its DHT-lowering abilities...this one is the most cited (in 156 other studies) about DIM being an androgen antagoniserhttp://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/12665522
Unfortunately, there aren't any studies on estroblock and women with hormonal issues though, so we have to rely on anecdotal evidence and the studies on prostate research in men. More data is needed about DIM and women, right now we're mostly speculating.
Supplements: inositol, DIM, digestive enzymes [don't need them every day anymore, only on cheat days], herpanacine & vitamin C with rose hips [not every day], regular sun exposure for vitamin D3.
Lifestyle & Skin Care: Low histamine diet, avoiding unnecessary stress, balancing skin's PH (using Image Ormedics), using distilled/ filtered water to wash face, occasional high frequency facials... (although I have been slacking lately)
