  1. Bumping this so it doesn't go inactive. This is too valuable.
  2. Yes, I think so. I just purchased a juicer and I plan to purchase some L-Carnitine as well. I have also made quite a few other changes over the last couple of weeks. I need to make some time to update my thread.
  3. Update: I have stopped using linoleic acid (safflower oil) on my face. I am almost positive that's what was caused the acne on my forehead.
  4. Yes, definitely. My face doesn't seem to have a "sheen" to it like it once did, if you know what I mean. My current problem area is my forehead, which has closed bumps. Initially I though the linoleic acid was helping, but I might have used too much and caused more harm than good. I plan to use the linoleic acid (safflower oil) again, but just one drop, and only on my forehead at night.
  5. I have been using the pro-biotic "PB 8" by Nutrition Now for a few days now. I will update this thread if I see any difference with this addition.
  6. I recently received Pantothenic Acid (B5) 500mg timed release from Puritan's Pride. They seemed to be the best brand and one of the only ones that I could find that offered timed release. I plan to take anywhere from 500mg to 1g every day for the next couple of months to see if there is any effect.

  8. Just purchased a new electric razor. Hopefully it will cut down on the irritation my skin experiences while shaving.
  9. So which vitamins should be taken together? I am currently taking: 1.2g of NAC (BulkSupplements), 300mg of Milk Thistle (Jarrow Formulas), 50mg of Zinc Picolinate (NOW), 200mg of Selenium (every other day), Cod Liver Oil (going to switch to Krill oil), Probiotics (Nature's Bounty) 5,000 IU of Vitamin D-3 (NOW, every other day). I will also be adding 500mg of time-release B5. I was taking a B-Complex, but stopped due to the B12 being made up of cyanocobalamin.
  10. You can just google the B-complex having caused breakouts for some. The first link is from the love vitamin (natural / caveman approach to acne) http://thelovevitamin.com/15994/b-vitamins-acne/ When I took Biotin (Vitamin B7) I definitely noticed an increase in oil production. Look at any Biotin supplement reviews and you'll see the same results for many people. But it depends on the person. 500mg of B5 is such a low dose in my opinion. B5 is water soluble as well, so any excess is just elimin
  11. Which time release B5 is everyone taking who is following this regimen? I can't seem to find one that is time release that's reputable.
  12. On second thought: I think that I am going to stop taking a B-Complex and instead take 500mg to 1g of B5. Good call! If you're fairly clean on the paleo diet you probably don't need many vitamin supplements, as you'd likely be getting enough from all the veggies. A lot of people have documented an increase in acne from B-complex vitamins as well. I noticed my face got quite a bit more oily when I supplemented with biotin (for my seb derm). If you
