Topics I've Started

I beg all of you to try Zinc + Chromium

07 October 2005 - 12:53 AM

After two weeks I am completely clear. I've been taking 100 mg zinc and 800mcg chromium gtf daily and this has really contained my acne. I've recommended this treatment to three of my friends with really bad acne and it's worked for them too. They haven't had any new flareups after only a few days of taking the zinc and chromium.

I had been on the regimen for about 5 months and just got tired of the dryness and hassle of benzoyl peroxide. I posted a while back about how vegetables seemed to help my acne alot in combination with BP. In retrospect i think the zinc and small levels of chromium in the vegetables were the reason why. 100 mg zinc and 800 mcg chromium GTF are more than you could ever get eating pounds of fresh vegetables.

Please try this, it really works. If your unsure, do some online research yourself and you'll see how zinc and chromium work to strengthen the immune system and lower blood sugar levels.

word of caution: > 100 mg zinc daily may cause copper deficiency over many months, so stay below 100 mg zinc, or eat lots of copper rich foods, (like cashews).

a Healthy Diet Can Help Acne Alot

This is my first post. I just wanted to share with you my experience with diet and acne. I tried Dan's regimen and i got great results but still got occassional acne. After adding a few things to my diet my acne completely disappeared. These are the foods I added and reduced from my daily diet.

1. 1 or 2 bowls of mixed vegetables : peas, carrots, and corn ( frozen bags from ralphs or albertsons, really cheap)

2. 1 cup of green tea (supposedly rich in antioxidants)

3. no binging on sugary foods like we all like to do sometimes (ie icecream until we're tired of icecream)

And that's it. After 1 week I didn't get any new acne and its been about 6 or 7 months since starting the regimen. I searched around the internet looking for an explanation and found this article among many that argued vegetables and antioxidants have an anti-inflammatory effect on the body, helping with acne. http://beauty.ivilla...0,,qjhj,00.html

I urge eveyone to try this cause it worked really well for me and i hope it works well for you if you still have problems. By the way, thanks Dan for sharing the regimen with all of us.
