I have been wondering whether nuts are good or bad when talking about Acne? Actually I eat a lot of nuts, especially almonds every day. What's your opinion about nuts? I have read different things about nuts on this forum.
Have a nice day!
Depends on your individual intolerances and what else you eat, I.e how many other sources of omega 6 fats you eat. And whether or not they are rancid. I do hope you are talking about raw nuts?
Also, it is best to soak/sprout them for digestibility and bioavailability.
And, not everything you think is a nut, is a true nut and may be completely unrelated thing. So you might e allergic to true nuts, but not almonds or cashews, for example. Or vice versa.
Almonds are not nuts, but seeds of fruit related to stone fruit. You could be allergic to the whole family.

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!
