Will this multivitamin give me acne?

Recommended Posts

This multivitamin looks really good, has lots of vitamins and minerals and since I exercise it looks good for restoring energy. However, the only thing that's bad about it is that it has 100% the daily value of iodine.


Do you guys think I should take this vitamin or should I avoid it? Thanks.

I wouldn't take it... I'd start by increasing my intake of nutrient-dense and properly prepared food first and foremost.

switch to mercola vitamins, he uses albion chelated minerals, perhaps the best available. and its not a tablet its in a capsule, which can also be opened and mixed directly with food.

I think its one of the best available.

and this iodine thing, im not sure its a big deal.

I have used this vitamin because I needed one and it was the only decent one readily available in my house and it didn't make my acne any worse. I ran out and my face looks the same...if anything it looks worse since I've stopped taking it. Just wondering I've heard about the iodine link with acne before and I debated taking this vitamin in the first place because of it but what if we don't use iodized salt at all. None. Will I still get the trace amounts that I need for normal thyroid function? I use sea salt and it is not iodized and I don't eat seaweed or anything with iodine in it.
