B5 Pantothenic Acid

While I have not tried this exact brand per say, I am familiar with the main ingredient B5 Pantothenic Acid. The idea behind taking B5 is to reduce sebum production that your body produces. In theory less oil will help acne because the pores will not fill up and become inflamed with trapped debris. The B5 does its job at reducing sebum production however you need to take a significant dosage to see any appreciable results. Look into the powdered B5 which you can buy in bulk and then mix it so you can apply it on your face. It will save you having to swallow all the pills and it will be cheaper. The B5 pills are not cheap and you need to keep taking them or else your face will produce oil at the same rate before you started taking the B5 supplement. Its an alternative method that may work for others so there's no harm in trying it out for yourself

Doesn't last - Taken on and off for a few years

I've taken this while it worked, then stopped when it no longer dried up my oily skin. Then again re-started and it worked for a time. Unfortunately it just doesn't last. yes while it works it is great, oily skin to zero and great skin. But the funny thing is right now as i've cycled it for a few years it no-longer works at all. Even Pantethine won't kickstart the oily skin reversal anymore. I no longer want to touch the stuff, the effect of it not lasting is a right teeze. So screw it, back to the drawing board to figure out what exactly is happening that makes this stuff work even for short spells. I figured out that while im skinnier it lasts longer, while chubby it takes longer to work and for less time - so cholesterol lvl is a factor. Any of u guys have the same effect as me and are researching solutions plz message me.

Odorless garlic tabs are effective against skin bacteria and acne. The additional option is taking milk thistle to clean your liver to help skin. Esther C 500mg + and Lysine 500 mg+ increase collagine and keep skin wrinkle free.

Be careful with what you eat. The vitaminb5 become less efective the more trashy food i eat. Also take multiple small doses trooughout the day rather than 1 or 2 massive doses a day.

It works but don't overdoze too much!

Hi! I tried Vitamin B5 for over a year and I saw some improvement. It kind of calmed my skin all over and took the edge of my acne and rosacea. However I still had a lot of blackheads, and cysts and zits would still pop up here and there. You need to take a lot of it to really see a difference, but taking 10-20 grams of Vitamin B5 a day is very bad for you in the long run (it can damage your body and give you chronic headache). I would stay around 5 grams of vitamin B5 and ad a few other things. I found a really great regime on this website: [link removed] My skin has never looked better!

Why is everyone overdosing?

The recommended intake for adults is 5mg, you guys are talking about grams! Please do your research before taking that much. Too much of a good thing is always bad.

Its water soluble it doesn't matter if I take 10 grams, my body will use what it needs then the rest is flushed out. Thats why you take it 3-4 times a day and at high doses. Its nearly impossible to tell exactly how much your body needs so its encouraged to mega dose to make sure you get what your body needs. Dont hate the results, I've had severe acne and then I started this two years ago. Everyone now comments on how flawless and clear my skin is. Just sayin.

It reduces oil, eventually reducing acne. turns pastules and papules into white heads, which are smaller takes a LONG time You MUST use cleansers on the side, doesnt work alone Dry lips and skin Costs alot you need about 10g a day Great but you need a lot of money to spend sisnce dosage is high.

It dose cost a lot at first but after about two years (albeit slowly lowering my doses) I now take about 4 grams a day and still maintain acne free skin.

-I would say it is clearing my skin up -No hastle....takes less than a minute to take a pill -reletivly cheap if you find it in a shop. -Taking longer than i expected - Mega dosing ?????? i'm really enjoying using this product mainly because it is so easy to use and i am seeing a gradual difference in my skin. One thing i'm not to sure about though is the dosage. My B5 supplement is 500mg (per tab.) Now i;m constantly reading reviews that say to take up to 10g (20 tabs!!) per day. I mean i'm still only in my teens but i think i'm mature enough to know that 20 vitamins per day could be considered mega dosing. Personally i'm going to limit myself to 2g (4 tabs) per day, because i'm scared of any side affects. Preferably 2 tabs in the morning before school and 2 before i go to bed. Besides the dosage, its true, i think this supplement is working for me - slowly but surely. Although i dont see any difference to my blackheads on my nose which is a shame, but then again i have only been using these for about two weeks. Two weeks is also the time when people say that you should start seeing results which makes sense. In conclusion vitamin B5 seems to be a natural remedy for skin and acne and i would definatly reccomend it to anybody. But please bear in mind your dosage. Seriously 20 tablets per day...everyday?!?!?

- Clears acne - Less oily skin - Broken, dry, brittle, frizzy, untamed hair - Lots of tablets to take - Can work out expensive I started taking 1,000mg a day for a week, and then upped it to 2,000mg in week 2. I noticed a distinct improvement in my skin. My acne had decreased in a couple of weeks. I would still have approximately 1-2 active spots at any one time, but that was much easier to handle than the 10-20 spots I had any any one time beforehand. However, I started to notice that my hair texture changed. It became completely unmanageable, I could not style it at all. Within minutes of styling it would become wild, and I'd have to tie it up. I also noticed lots of broken hair, where beforehand my hair was in great condition. Therefore, I decided to stop taking B5. It has been 2 weeks and my acne has unfortunately increased again. I am going to try something else......The search begins again!

- oily skin reduced thus acne slightly reduced - taking 5 pills 4 times a day - relatively costly since it builds on top of the daily skincare regime. - Paid $70 every 2 months that excluded P&H If oily skin is the cause of your acne, this should work. I think it does what it says - which is reduce the oil production on the skin. Whether or not that reduces acne is dependent on the participant's skin. It reduced my acne occurrence but as mentioned, I dont think oily skin is the only attribution towards acne. Try it if you have oily skin. Take this with a good cleanser/toner/moisturizer regime. This can be quite costly since it builds on top of your daily skincare.
