  1. Inositol seems to be effective in the treatment of PCOS and acne
  2. It's a myth that beta-carotene is converted to Vitamin A "as needed" and it's also a myth that beta-carotene is safer than preformed Vitamin A. Read here:
  3. Has anybody read the articles of Ray Peat? Ray Peat is a Ph.D. biologist, who strongly argues against fish oil consumption. Please check out the folling articles: http://raypeat.com/articles/articles/fishoil.shtml http://raypeat.com/articles/articles/unsaturatedfats.shtml Also check out the following forums: http://health.groups.yahoo.com/group/AV-Skeptics/messages http://groups.msn.com/TheScientificDebateF.../nutrition.msnw The moderators of both forums make a strong case against PUFA (incl
  4. Iodine does only cause break outs in VERY high amounts. Most people only get acne problems with several 100times the RDA of iodine. I can attest, that the amounts of iodine you find in common foods is not enough to affect your skin. I experimented with very high amounts of iodine myself. I gradually increased the dose over several weeks to 50mg/day, which is 400x the RDA! I only had a slight increase in acne on the very high dose. A few milligram does not affect my acne. Actually, I believe, it
  5. Here's a very interesting site with lots of positive reports about the health effects of virgin cocount oil: http://www.earthclinic.com/Remedies/coconut_oil.html Quite a lot of people are reporting less acne! I've been taking virgin coconut oil myself for the past 10 days and I definitely see an improvement in my skin.
  6. Spinach contains huge amounts of oxalic acid. That's probably the reason why it can cause break outs in some people. Read here: All sorts of dietetic regulations have been laid down as part of the treatment of acne and seborrhoea, mostly useless. The patient must of course avoid overeating and drinking, food which upsets the stomach, and food containing much oxalates. The importance of the latter restriction is not generally appreciated. I may mention the ease of a dermatological colleague who
  7. Here's another very interesting thread about niacin: http://www.acne.org/messageboard/index.php...t=0&start=0
  8. Interesting. Here are some more positive experiences with niacin: http://www.avantlabs.com/forum/index.php?s...st&p=249600 Is niacin still working for you?
  9. Iodine does only cause break outs in VERY high amounts. Most people only get acne problems with several 100times the RDA of iodine. I can attest, that the amounts of iodine you find in common foods is not enough to affect your skin. I experimented with very high amounts of iodine myself and actually still take it. I gradually increased the dose over several weeks to 50mg/day, which is 400x the RDA! It't not iodine itself that causes skin problems, it's because high doses of iodine will increase

    Vitamin D

    It seems, that the good results reported by Maynard (1938) could not be replicated in later trials. Here's an interesting quote from a paper published in 1942:

    Vitamin D

    The official recommendations for vitamin d are much too low. Please watch this very informative video from one of the leading vitamin d researchers: http://www.insinc.com/onlinetv/directms13o...tvnetplayer.htm Most people need about 3000-5000 I.U. vitamin d during winter time to get adequate blood levels. No adverse effects have ever been observed with doses below 20'000 vitamin D3. I've been taking 4000 I.U. for the past 4 months.
  12. Here's a very interesing article about vinegar and it's antiglycemic effects: There's also a very interesting discussion about acv on the mind and muscle forum. Here's a quote from a user who seems to be very knowledgable
  13. I found another article that questions the benefits of fish oil supplementation. Check it out! http://www.brianpeskin.com/efa-analysis.pdf
  14. No, it's not 400, it's 800mg Lactoferrin per day. Forty-four teenagers were enrolled into the study (23 males and 21 females, with an average of 15.3 years (range 13 to 19)). The subjects consumed orally 200 mg of chewable Acne Eraser tablets per day for 8 successive weeks, to be consumed as two tablets in the morning and two in the evening. http://proteinfactory.com/store/article_in...articles_id=265 I think, Praventin contains basically Lactoferrin. They just invented their own tr
