Carrot Juice - Like Accutane ?

Recommended Posts

I think that carrot juice is healping my acne - but i take it daily - i started to get dry lips

maybe also dry eyes - maybe

i wonder if it has the same dangers ? cause im juicing 8 carrots a day

i think it has as much vitamin a as the pill - right ?

why does raccutane have to be taken constantly ? why the say you need to complete a cycle ? isnt it just stored in the liver and that shouldnt matter much ?

Your hands and feet might start to turn orange (harmless, but can look a little weird). Otherwise probably not dangerous.

It is actually very dangerous, its called Oompa Loompaitus. In extreme cases, Oompa Loompaitus sufferers end up working in a large chocolate factory.

Actually, I've been doing this for quite a while. Whenever I get a breakout, a couple days of eating a few carrots a day usually settles it down.

However, because it Beta-Carotene and Vitamin A are lipid soluble (you can't just pee them out), so they will build up in your body. Over time this can have a range of side-effects including damage to your liver and neurotoxicity. This is why Accutane users need to get regular liver enzyme tests.

When you notice a slight yellowing of your skin, you know you're probably over-doing it. It'll be hard for you to overdose on carrot juice, but it comes down to common-sense and good judgement.
