Vitamin B5 & Acne

How does Vitamin B5 STOP Acne?..

The main cause of acne is oily skin! Too much skin oil leads to clogged pores and promotes bacteria growth leading to pimples, blackheads, whiteheads and breakouts. Vitamin B5 regulates the amount of oil your skin produces returning it a normal level, ultimately reducing acne.

Your skin is producing too much oil because the lipids and fatty acid deposits underneath the skin are not getting broken down and re-circulated into the bloodstream. Instead they are being released as sebum (oil). What enables your body to break down these fatty acids is directly related to an enzyme called coenzyme A, which is an essential enzyme to the body and is used for fatty acid metabolism. When there is enough Vitamin B5 available in the diet, the deficiency in coenzyme A is eliminated. As a result, a person's fatty acids get broken down and the skin doesn't over release oil. By minimising the amount of oil that is released, acne does not occur.

Vitamin B5 Myths Dispelled...

First of all, Vitamin B5 is NOT dangerous. Even though high dosages are required to effectively treat acne, Vitamin B5 is water soluble, meaning any excess is lost through urination and not retained by your body.

Vitamin B5 is the world's strongest acne treatment with no side effects.

Correct Daily Dosage...

The amount of Vitamin B5 needed to effectively treat acne varies depending on the formulation of the acne treatment. Many naturopaths recommend 5-10 grams of Vitamin B5 each day. Because Vitamin B5 is water soluble, you will need to be periodically taking it throughout the day to ensure it is available when your body needs it.

It is possible to effectively treat acne with a daily dosage as small as 3 grams (this is what acne treatment brand SkinB5 has). Look for an acne tablet that has an 8-hour time release formula. This helps your body maintain the B5 and also lowers the necessary daily dosage.

For the first 2 days take 5 grms, then increase to 10 grms a day until your acne is clear then gradually lower dose to a maintenance level. Everyone's body reacts differently to Vitamin b5 so your acne might clear in 4 weeks or it may take up to 6 months. Once clear find a maintenance dose that suits your skin.

Vitamin B5 powder -- 1 teaspoon 3 times daily : 1 glass = morning, 1 glass = lunch, 1 glass = dinner

Vitamin B5 tablets -- 2 tablets, 3 times daily: 2 tablets = morning, 2 tablets = lunch, 2 tablets at night

What acne treatments DON'T Work?...

Topical treatments (creams, cleansers etc) treat acne after the problem has occurred. These can be effective at reducing the amount of oil on the skin’s surface, but don’t actually do anything to cure acne. Do NOT waste your money on topical treatments. They are over-priced and yield poor results in treating acne.

Acne must treated internally at the core of the problem. We've tested over 50 vitamin supplements sold online and none of them were highly effective. Our tests have shown that Vitamin B5 is by far best supplement needed to treat acne.

Possible side effects of Vitamin B5...

Vitamin B5 is water soluble meaning any excess is excreted out of the body through urination. It is safe to use for all ages. Side effects for Vitamin B5 are extremely rare and only occur if you’re taking 10 or more grams of B5 a day.

In the first 1-2 months you may experience mild diarrhoea or stomach irritation. This will subside once your body adjusts to the levels of Vitamin B5.

If you do experience any of these side effects, take lower amounts at great frequencies. Ie: 5 grams spread over 5 doses during the day.

If your mild diarrhoea continues, reduce the amount of Vitamin B5 you’re taking or stop all together and consult a healthcare professional.
