How To Use
Dose 15 ml daily to be taken directly or added to 20 ml water or juice.
Acne is an imbalance within the body and the body needs to be supported in the right direction to find a balance. Sebaceous gland produce the oil for our skin and these glands are affected by the hormonal changes within the body and will react to higher and lower testosterone and estrogen levels which vary throughout our lifetime but especially in our teens. To support a healthy natural balance within the body that needs to “cure” these imbalances nutrient can help. For ex. It has shown that adding vitamin B6 to your diet will support regulating hormone activity and prostaglandin action.
Vitamin B6 can reduce the effects of testosterone and its metabolites such as dihydrotestosterone. By regulating these male sex hormones, vitamin B6 prevents the hormonal imbalance that causes acne.
Vitamin C, E, D and more also have antiinflammatory properties that supports the body by supporting immune system to heal current acne and wounds produced by the current acne. With supporting to heal the current acne the goal is eliminate the acne spot quicker than without the support of the nutrient.
Acne can often leave scarring known as acne scarring. Vitamin E has proven an effective ingredient to support the healing process of wounds, in this case created by acne, resulting in fewer or less visible scarring.
Vitamin C Ascorbicacid
Supports uptake of ingested collagen
Vitamin D has other roles in human health, including modulation of neuromuscular andimmune function and reduction of inflammation.
In 2016, Korean researchers compared vitamin D levels of people with acne to those with clear skin. Their results showed that acne patients were much more likely to be vitamin D deficient than those without acne; 48.8% of acne patients were deficient in vitamin D vs. 22.5% of people without acne.
V itamin E is an antioxidant that protects and repairs your skin.
Vitamin B5 Pantothenic acid is important for our bodies to properly use carbohydrates, proteins, and lipids and for healthy skin.
Vitamin B6 Treats premenstrual acne by supporting normal hormonal balance.
Also supports normal hormonal balance in men. The positive effects of vitamin B6 in acne treatment are generally attributed to the role of the vitamin in regulating hormone activity and prostaglandin action. Vitamin B6 can reduce the effects of testosterone and its metabolites such as dihydrotestosterone. By regulating these male sex hormones, vitamin B6 prevents the hormonal imbalance that causes acne.
It has also been noted that it could promote healthier-looking skin, act as an analgesic for pain, increase appetite if you are run-down, and may even delay hair greying when used in conjunction with pantothenic acid and PABA.
PABA is an antioxidant that protects against free radicals and skin damage.
Grape seed powder Antioxidant properties, protects healthy cells
Yet there is no much data to support or refute this theory. A study published in Dermatologic Surgery entitled "Cosmeceuticals Containing Herbs: Fact, Fiction, and Future," found that while grape seed was noted as a potential cure for acne, there were no studies indicating whether it was effective.
Grape seed powder for acne may still be effective, however, because it is rich in linoleic acid. A study in the University of Liège in Belgium noted that one of the causes of acne may be a low linoleic acid content in skin oil. They found that those that used a topical linoleic acid treatment on their skin found a reduction in the size of their open follicles by as much as 25% compared to placebo.
A study by Kansai Medical University in Japan found something similar. They found that while linoleic acid is unlikely to be a strong cause of acne, it is likely that low levels of linoleic acid allow more inflammation to occur, presumably making acne look worse.
