I started "vitamin A" higher dosage today to get the sebum production down.

I take 4000 UI x 6 a day. thats a total of 24.000 UI

25.000 UI is the set level of saveness, > above that > you can experience stuff like thining hair.

better try the intake of 24.000 UI for 2 weeks to finaly see an affect. taking vitamin A to a acutane level is wayy to dangerous but this level wil surfice.

after seeing an effect you can try to ajust your level higher or lower depending on your body, some peeple can hande 50.000 UI but that is not adviceble to take longer than 4 mouths.

this level has been set by SOLGAR.

hope it helps ya. wink.gif

:: what would you buy? ::

1 - the ugly colored and graved with bird shit all over it, but Porsche/Lamborgini shaped car what could take you like a jet plane?

2 - or the amazing static red colored shiny, with the green glow under the car but is shaped like a lame cube where old folks drive in?

ps: I don't know cars, only girls... but you got the point.

Better to get Vitamin A through food -- it will absorb better and plus you get lots of other vitamins with it plus minerals..

If you want to overload on Vitamin A, overload on
