Well its been 1 week and 4 days since i started taking 10grams of b5 a day, i was three days into it and i come on here saying it was working, then it got worse for 2-3 days. I thought oh crap, but now since wednesday, so 3 days, its been sorting itself out. Less oily skin, like only 1 or none new pimples a day and my skin is starting to look like what it did before i had acne. Fuck yer. Woo. Bless the B5. Now i did wait it out for a lil before posting as to not jinx it. but it only seems to be getting better, after the short breakout period.

Thanks to white fox.

Hi everyone. I am new here but have some specific questions, so I will get right to the point.

There are two b5 products I am discussing. First of all is vitacure's b5clearskin from b5clearskin.com. About 10 months or so ago, I started using the powder formula of their b5 and within only 2 or 3 days I could notice a difference. My skin was less oily and less acne was forming. It didn't take long before it started to work REALLY WELL, it got rid of acne that I had and kept away new acne.

Over the months until just recently I have still been taking it, but here is the strange part, every so often (usually as I am getting through a 1 month bottle to the last week or so in it.) It seems to slowly start losing effectiveness. I find this quite odd, and I would usually order another batch and it would almost always start working really well really fast again.

Because of this strange matter though, I have not had a good opportunity to reduce the dose from 10 grams a day, which is what is instructed to use it at for 3 months or so. Even so, I have been taking a b-complex almost daily, and have seen very little side effects over these months. The only real problem is getting the results to stay consistent for a good period of time, and I have not been able to figure out why this always happens.

Next is skinb5.com. I have just started trying their time-released capsules for a day or so now, and after only about 1 day I have had a few pimples come up suddenly, and in places on my face that I haven't had any in quite some time. I am trying to decide if I should stick with the skinb5 for a while longer and see if it gets better, or go back to the b5clearskin. The skinb5 product sounds "superior" because of the time-release formula and more ingredients contained in it, but it is also more expensive and ships slower. If it will just work and keep working however, I will not mind the cost and stay with it though!

Has anyone else used either of these, and if so, what has your experience with them been? I would love to be able to get a good idea about what to do next at this point! Let me know anything you can.

Hi All

Iv just started a B5 regime to help with skin oil, iv noticed on the ingredients that im taking a huge amount of D-calcium Pantothenate 10g a day (10,000mg). I already take a calcium supplement seperately that givves me 800mg.

And what iv read online is that 2500mg is the peak for safely consuming calcium.

Advice anyone plz????

Im concerned about this. Anyone know more about b5?????

Don't be concerned.

I posted the link earlier in this thread wchich says that it's 8% Calcium in Calcium Panthotenate. Do the math and you will find out that it doesn't exceed the daily intake recommended. However, drop the calcium supplement while using B5.

HI!

I've been using B5 for 5 months now. I've been taking 20 pills/10g a day all the time (exept from some days when I didn't have enough or any at all)..

Im 98% clean now and I've never been feeling greater. I started taking 18 pills/9g a day for about 9 days ago and Im going to keep taking 9g for one more week or so..

The only side effects I've had is dey lips and some stomach trouble once a while..

Im taking b-vitamins together with the b5.

Since im only 15 years old I don't know too much about b5...

Has anyone trapped down from 10g to 5g a day with good results?

Thanks

Hi all. I am still trying to get an answer to this problem. I feel a lot like what I have seen others on this forum say when they say that "you only seem to get 1 shot with b5, then that's it."

I have been using a powder formula from b5clearskin.com for many months now, and the last month or so it has not been working as well anymore. Does anyone know what to do so solve this?

I have tried some b5 products from other internet brands, mainly pill forms, but those have not seemed to work nearly as well as the powder used to for me.

Someone who has had this type of problem please give me some advice! I had my acne knocked out finally for almost a year with b5, and now I seem to be losing my hold on it again.

It is my one year anniversary of taking b5 supplements and I am very happy with the results.

I started taking 6 g b5 per day for 6 weeks and then decreased down to 2 g p/d. After 6 months I decreased to 1 g p/d for 4 weeks. My skin stopped improving during this period so I increased back up to 2 g p/d for the remainder of the year.

After taking b5 for 3 months, my back was completely clear - something I've never been able to say. Now my face is about 98% clear with just some faint red marks along the jawline. (The jawline seems to be a tough place to clear.)

My theory for why b5 works for some of us is that we are not absorbing b5 properly which causes fats (cholesterol ?) to be deposited under the skin. The fats are trapped there causing acne. I also have an intolerance of wheat (gluten) so wonder if there is a connection there.

All the best!

:D

hello. i need some encouragement! :rolleyes:

on thursday, it'll be 5 weeks on b5, 20 pills a day, yadda yadda yadda. the trouble is, i'm not really seeing the improvement i was hoping for. my skin is definately less oily, and i definately had the initial breakout :hand: but i'm still breaking out now. my skin feels a little better, but it definately doesn't look any better.

i'm going to give this 8 weeks, and if i don't see an improvement by then, i think i should quit and try something else.

i wish my acne would just piss off!!!

I saw no improvement my first month, some in my second, and the most in my third. I strongly encourage you to stick it out the whole 3 months.

I agree with MarsBar. I'd give it 3 months and then decide whether you want to continue or not. If the number of pills you are taking is bothersome, buy the 1,000 mg pills instead of 500 mg. That will cut the number down by half.

Best wishes ...

Hi,

I'm new to this site. I'm 55 years old and have had extremely oily skin all my life. I've been taking B5 for over a month and have not noticed a change in the oiliness of my skin. I'm taking it as recommended on this site. Any ideas anyone?

The oil reduction doesn't work for everyone, but it depends on which b5 type you use. I've read much about Vilantae on this forum, and that it is good to oily skin :)

Good to hear :)

I've been taking 10g a day for almost 6 months now (tried with 8g a day, but I think my acne came back)

Nowdays im really worried about that my b5 time can be over soon because I've read that many looses the b5 effect after 1 year or so.. Is this true? Or is it just for someone? Anyone here thats been using b5 for over 1 year?
