Hi,

 

 after taking 5000IU of Vit D for 8 months and still my number was at 41, I decided to up it to 10000IU.

After a week of increasing the dosage I started breaking out like I had 5-6 active acne at any given time. This from being almost clear. At the most 1-2 acne around my period. I thought it was around my period and tried not to stress out too much about it. Now its been about 10 days since my period and I am still breaking out. I have decided to go back to 5000IU vit D. THis week I am not taking any at all. Next week will start taking 5000IUs. My diet has not changed at all.

 

I then read about how Vitamin D supplementation in excess can cause magnesium deficiency, which can cause acne and a myriad of other symptoms. Some say vit d supplementation also unmasks the magnesium deficiency.

I do have a few hours of discomfort during my period..not too bad but it is there.

I am going to start supplementing magnesium from Saturday. Chelated magnesium glycinate from vitacost.

I am hoping this is the last missing piece in the puzzle

 

I have regular comfortable bowel movements every morning as soon as I wake up and would like to keep it like that. I have heard magnesium can give you loose motions. I do not want that. How much do you think I should supplement and when should I take that?

 

Thanks

I think Magnesium oxide Is more likely to have a laxative effect.

And take magnesium at night. It helps sleep.

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!

At night before bed? Does it need to be taken with food? How much?

 

Thanks
