i take a good amount of vitamins everyday. they include:

Biotin- 1000mcg

Vitamin B-6- 100mg

Vitamin A- 8000IU

Vitamin C- 500 mg

Vitamin E-400IU

Chelated Zinc- 50mg

Fish Oil- 1000mg

They seem like they are doing their duties, but i would like to know when to take each vitamin and with what other vitamin would be a good combination together. I take the one biotin, 1 vitamin b-6 , and one vitamin c in the morning, then at night i take one fish oil, one chelated zinc, one vitamin E and A. I would like to know if i should change my routine or add more of each. Any feedback is welcome.

Thanks,

Corey

Yes it is for acne. I have been taking these vitamins for about a month and i can say that i have seen a difference so far, but like i said its only been a month and i have seen some improvement. I want to see how much clearer ill be in a couple of months. I heard zinc was good for acne so i picked some up, its actually working!

Are you taking the vitamins for your acne? and has it worked? I take niacinmide ( with Zinc and Folic Acid) and my acne is gone.

I would love to know how many mgs you take of each, and how long dit it take to get clear? Also, what was your skin like before? I'm on the same supps + vitamin C and B6 but lately it has not gone well.

The niacinmide I take is prescribed by my derm. I believe it's 700 mg ( I could be totally wrong). I haven't taken it in a few weeks because I'm too lazy to drop off my prescription but when my derm prescribed me my vitamins I had no pimples at the time but my face would still break out. But once I started taking them, I'd say it took like 2 to 3 months for me to see my face consistently clear.

Oh and I forgot to add! The vitamins she prescribes me is niacinamide and it has folic acid, cupric acid and zinc oxide in it. I don't take it separately. She actually just prescribed me something else cause she had a coupon for it so its almost free. I hope it still works though.

Please, consult a medical professional before taking any vitamins/supplements on your own.

This is nonsense.

http://orthomolecular.org/resources/omns/v07n16.shtml

You do realize that doctors and healthcare professionals take under 10 hours of seminars in "nutrition" in med school? Most of them are completely oblivious to the effectiveness of many vitamins and supplements and ground their beliefs in the insufficient RDA levels. RDA, the amount of a vitamin needed to keep you from dying, but not put you in optimum health.

Yep. Useless. Although if you are taking prescription drugs or have a known ailment you should consult them about any issues. And do your own research. And if you are taking prescription drugs, you should reconsider, know all the negative consequences and do your own research for better solutions. Food is the best medicine, along with sleep, laughter, active lifestyle, etc.

Biotin is known for breaking some people out, and so is B6. But if this combo works for you, then keep taking them I guess.

Honestly you should stick to just one vitamin at a time. That way if your skin gets better or worse you know exactly what's causing it. Taking an assortment of vitamins at the same time you won't know what vitamins are actually helping your skin and which ones are making it worse. Nevermind that certain vitamins can interact with each other, it's just a stupid thing to do.

Be careful. All those vits in high amounts seem dangerous.

Please do not listen to baseless claims like these. The OP isn't even taking high doses....

Vitamin e

Vitamin a

Vitamin c

http://orthomolecular.org/resources/omns/v07n14.shtml

http://lpi.oregonstate.edu/f-w99/kidneystones.html

There is no known toxicity level for vitamin c. 250 grams of sodium ascorbate has been used daily for long periods of time intravenously in numerous cancer treatment protocols. The only side effects at these high levels is a little thirst. Vitamin c is actually considered safer than water. Optimum dosage http://vitamincfoundation.org/www.orthomed.com/titrate.htm . The OP is actually taking insufficient amounts of vitamin c for optimum benefits.

Zinc

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2872358/#!po=36.2500

Toxicity level for zinc in humans is 27 grams .

Acute toxicity level of aspirin is 10.5 grams in an average weight human.

B6

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/16320662

Neuropathy occurs at intakes of 1000 mg and more.

There is only a certain amount the body can take in from vitamins. I have done some research ;)

Sorry again , you clearly haven't if you are making straw man statements with no evidence to back it up. You should just let this go and realize that you are wrong.
