  1. if your not fructose intolerant, i wouldnt even bother. im still struggling with this jawline cystic bullsh!t.
  2. yea, 30-40% of central europe has fructose intolerance or malabsorption. im pretty sure i have it, becuase i cut out all sugar and fruits, and my skin is doing ALOT better, and also i dont have as bad of digestion as i used to. i kinda came to the fructose conclusion after eating a spoon of honey on my breakfast oats, about 3-4 hours later my abdomen felt like it was going to explode...and i broke out a the day after. After reading about it, symptoms, and its most common frequency in central eur
  3. hey lilivg really random question but may i ask what you ancestry is, like irish, german, mexican, etc. i have strong central european ancestry from germany and i think im fructose intolerant but im not 100% sure, when i looked it up fructose malabsorption and intolerance is the highest in central europe,...
  4. maybe poeple with acne have problems absorbing nutrients, and thats what the diet acne link comes into play. like people curing acne with vitamins and diet...
  5. hmm yea i tried borage oil and it made my skin more oily and borken out, thats why i just stick with fish oil and res v. i also breakout mainly around my mouth chin and jawline. you should really try fish oil instead and see how it works for you.
  6. hey andersoj im kindof tempted to try the resveratrol cream that rev genetics sells. also beacuse when they did their studies on res v in regards to acne, and other skin problems it was with topical use of resveratrol. i wonder if the cream has them same ingredients or close...
  7. im a male and i get acne on my chin, jawline and upper neck. could it possibly be from hormones or is that only a female thing?
  8. oh really, i just bought the rev genetics 500mg so i can only hope for the best. i also bought some borage oil and im gonna give that a try.
  9. has anyone tried Rev Genetics Resveratrol, megaresveratrol is currently out of stock with the 50% resv and im trying to decide if i should go with rev genetics or mega resveratrol's 99%, what do you guys think?
  10. so borage oil fish oil combo is the best way to go? I'm currently just using fish oil and it's helped alot but I'm not 100% clear I'm trying to decide if I should add borage oil or just up my fish oil. Any help would be much appreciated, thanx guys!
  11. hmm sesame seeds, well I know that resveratrol is a very potent AA inhibitor but I wonder how it compares to sesame seeds. Have you noticed any significant difference supplementing sesame into your diet?
  12. hah thats awsome im actually considering transfering to boulder. but yea my skin is doing really good right now i have no new breakouts old one are healing, ive been avoiding oily foods and i upped my fish oil to 6 pills a day, and res v to 6 pills also (which still really isnt much of either considering res v only yeilds 500 mg per 2 pills, and fish oil is 600mg per cap so it come out to like 3.5 grams of fish oil) but im doing fine as far as that goes. i might gradually go to 8 resv and 8 fish
  13. whenever i eat vegetable oils, fatty meats, or anything too high in omega 6, that truns into too much Arachidonic acid inside the body which causes breakouts. there are a few threads on this also. ive noticed this becuase i was visiting colorado for a few days and all i ate was carbs, cereal bars with sugar, and alcoholic sugar drinks, no meat, no oils, and i didnt breakout at all! carbs and sugar dont seem to affect me nearly as much as fatty foods. i also breakout on my chin and jawline. i not
  14. hmm, im not quite sure that the resveratrol we take has too much of an effect on our insulin resistance. the study they did on the mice was in extremely high doses, much more than what we take as humans. and also i think the main reason for res v's action against acne comes down to its ablilty to regulate PPRs and inhibit Arachidonic Acid in our bodies. i also notice that res also works much better when used with fish oil supplements. whenever i eat to much fatty foods, or fatty meats, with vege
  15. what do you think is helping you the most out of everything?? im currently using 4 res v pills, and 4 fish oil which comes out to a total of 2.4 grams of omega 3, and im doing good. im upping my dose to 6 res v pills, and 6 fish oil now, i might add the borage oil to see if that helps also. i was reading that resveratrol has a very short half life in some of the imminst forums and other articles, so it doesnt stay in your blood stream for very long. i figured if i up my dose a little mayb i can
  16. yea it has to be hormonal becuase ive gone days eating terrible carb filled sugary foods with alcohol and not had anybreakout, and then ive gone days where i eat great like salads veggies and stuff and i still breakout, ive been using omega 3 fish oil and that helped alot but i still breakout around the same spots. ive been juicing greens for about a month and a half now and my skin has been doing pretty good but im still breaking out a little bit on my chin and jawline.
  17. yea i think my acne is due to a hormonal imbalance because i always breakout in the same spots on my chin and jawline and its either patchy red pimples or cysts. i rarley get zits anymore like i did in middle school. i dont know for sure if it is though what do you think??
  18. does anyone think the DIM in the cruciferous veggies is maybe whats helping with the acne?
  19. hows everyone doing so far. im doing ok i recently got a cyst on my chin and im starting to seriously dought that diet has an effect on me. the only thing that hurt me in the past was protein shakes which gave me severe cystic acne all over my face, but after accutane it was gone. now i only get patchy red irritations on my chin and jawline and an occasional cyst. i think i might have hormonal acne problems but i dont know what to do anymore. maybe il up the res v dosage and hope for the best.
  20. This is correct, i also use twin labs cod liver oil. It is not a typo, the reason why it is one table spoon is because it is mixed and emulsified with lecithin, and other palatable ingredients (lemon, mint, etc) so dont worry and keep takin that cod liver oil!!
  21. hey guys i have a good update. i recently upped my fish oil intake to about 4 grams a day, and i have no breakouts, execpt for like one white head. but my skin is the best its been since this website, and i really think the omega 3 balance has alot to do with it after reading some articles. but one thing is my skin is more dry than ussual. also i think the fish oil is what helping you guys much more than the borage oil. i tried borage oil before and it didnt keep me clear like this.
  22. hey ive been trying these green smoothies and theyve been great clearing my skin and giving energy but... now im kinda skeptical becuase ive been reading alot of information on green cruciferous vegetables cointaining goitrogens which cause thyroids problems in uptake of iodine. could someone maybe clear this up, becuase i dont want to get a hypothyroid!! thanx
  23. my feeling on topicals is that once you use them you have to use them forevver because you never give your skin a chance to heal itself on its own. thers a couple of threads talking about the acid mantle we have on our skin that is damged everytime we use anything, even mild cleansers. you should check it out. my skin has been healing pretty rapidly on this regimen. the fist few days were kinda gnarly cuz all of my oil and sebum came to the surface pushing everyrhing out, then all of a sudden al
  24. hey im the same way, my mom had acne in her teens and still gets it now and then and also my dad had acne. i had severe acne on my chest back and face. i did all the topicals and they just didnt work for me, so far the best thing ive been able to come across is a decently healthy diet and this "caveman" regimen has been going really good so far. you should give it a try and take some fish oil supplements or something that will help balance out your hormones. but thats just my two cents. acne is
