ONe thing that broke me out that was in multivitamins is IODINE. Once I stopped takking vitamins with that in it, I saw some good results.

IODINE is defintely bad, at least it was for me.

ps, I always thought lemon does something extra for you, but actually it does nothing. has zero effects on you positive. I guess if you want some added taste to water, its ok, but it carries zero healing powers and can only bleach your teeth. It's a nothing food really. No sugars, no fats... waste of cash wink.gif

hmmm. I was actually looking at some of this dietitian's website, freeacnebook.com, and in her forum area she states lemons are a nothing food... no harm (except tooth enamel discoloring with excessive lemons) no help really.

I love the taste of them.. I guess alittle juice here and there to spice up the taste of waste can't be a bad thing.

Yeah I see people keep suggesting supplement to each other like Multi-vitamins and ZINC and god forbid i ever try that again....

it was worse than going on creatine for me... it broke me out to a MAX i've never had for 3 weeks even though everything else was the same.

I don't know if it was the Iodine in it but i guess it could've been either way it was a killer and ZINC even worse... i did it to help me get my not so bad acne to perfect and it backfired and took a month out of my life by turning me to a guy who's full of acne. I so regret taking optizinc.

What type of dosage did you took? I think it was the iodine. Hey, the optizinc does it have other ingredients? If it did that probably was the case on your breakouts.

I'm sorry to hear you broke out badly. sad.gif cry.gif

Well as for myself I had bad experiences with multi-vitamins. I just wish I would of research it first then taking a plunge of breakouts.

OMG! Congratulations if you can stomach even 1/8 of a garlic clove. I try to eat one of the little sections and I gag. You make it seem so easy, what do you do? hold your nose when you do it?

I actually chew the garlic. It's too acidic. It made me had stomach aches. And my breath was pretty bad. YUCK.

Well, there's one thing you can do. You boil the garlic and once it's done boiling. You can drink it. By doing this so you can reduce the garlic taste and you still would be having it in your system. I think.

Actually, I rub the juice of freshly crushed garlic on my skin. It seems to act like a natural antibiotic. It's best used where acne is common as a preventative, and to stop existing acne from getting worse; it seems to halt a spot in its tracks many times.

But you have to be careful- garlic can *burn* the skin (as in *scar*!)

My skin tolerates it pretty well, but some people's don't. Test it somewhere out of sight, like behind the ear, first before you apply it in any major way; and even then be careful. And garlic varies.

I rub it on at night, and wash it off in the morning. Don't try to put chunks of garlic on the skin for any length of time though; that's too much of a good thing.

It's ok if it tingles slightly, but if it burns wash it off.

Oh yeah, and it tends to dry the skin out slightly. That's not actually a bad thing, but if the area starts to get too dry, then add suitable moisturiser and leave off the garlic there for a while.

It shouldn't make your breath smell, but you might notice a *slight* garlic smell if you start sweating.

It seems reasonably good to me. YMMV.

I learned in a science class that IODINE MAKES SKIN PROBLEMS WORSE. So yeah, I try to avoid it. Table salt is usually iodized, since before, people kept dying because they didn't get enough iodine in their diet.

???????. Lemon has vitamin C and is very cleansing.
My regimen:

Eat regularly: a wide variety of vegetables, eggs, meat/fish, cheese, yogurt, butter, fruit, nuts/seeds.

Occasionally eat: beans, squash, potatoes.

Don't eat: sugar, grains, most processed food.

I'm wondering if you could roast the garlic and not lose the healing properties. It tastes AWESOME roasted (you just throw a few cloves on a cookie sheet and bake at 250F for an hour or so), especially when spread on bread or crackers. The taste changes to a more buttery, less tangy, taste.

I also wonder if the garlic capsules (marked "no odor") would be the same...
