    B5


    Anyone know aa cheap (the cheapest) place to get B5 in either caps or powder? Gonna give this a try before moving on to accutane. Or do you guys think it would be better/cheaper to get a script for accutane...i believe this would cost me around $20-$30 for the visit and script.

    The cheapest I have found so far is allstarhealth;
    Twinlab 200-500mg caps for $12.47 if anyone else is interested.
    .....or....
    Twinlab 100-500mg caps for $5.75.

    Has anyone herd of using B6 for acne. If you read the health notes that anyvitamin shop has it ranks B6 over B5 for acne fighting capabilitites.

    GNC; I could swear that there's is the only B5 that works--I tried other brands, but when I go one teh GNC one (at about 4 grams per day) my acne disapears 100%.

    9.99 for 100 of .5g caps. Not too horrible a price-shocking for gnc.

    1fast400 sells b5 powder by now foods. its way cheaper than capsules, and you can measure out your dose accordingly. By week 3 or 4 it should stop oil production almost completely, and it gives your skin a nice tone.

    I just ordered a few bottles of b5 from 1fast, hoping to clear up my back/shoulders/chest, I've had acne on them since I was about 15 years old and now its just trying to piss me off. I hate taking my shirt off infront of anybody beccause of my skin.

    Basically the cause of acne is a defect or deficiency in a person's metabolism of lipids (fats) which occurs due to a lack of coenzyme-A in the body. Coenzyme-A is made of ATP (energy), cysteine, and pantothenic acid. Of these 3, pantothenic acid is the only one which is a vitamin and must be supplied through the diet. The other 2 are produced by the body. So if you supplement with pantothenic acid you create more Coenzyme-A in your body and your fats get metabolized. A lack of Coenzyme-A in the body means that fats don't get broken down. Instead, they get deposited in your sebaceous (oil) glands and get secreted as sebum (oil). Oil is a fat in liquid form. You get acne because the acne bacteria (Propionibacterium acne) in your pores feeds on this excess oil

    just received my package from 1fast400. I'm going to use the b5 like this:

    first 3 days I'll load at 10g/day
    Next 4 days I'll go with 5g/day
    then run a maintence of 2-3g/day

    I think excessive amounts of b5 is a waste. it is a water soluble vitamin so taking large dosages at once simply means you are going to excrete a fair amount in urine.

    If you choose to take the large dosages, space them out as best as you can.

    I have read for optimal results... you start with 10grams/day for 3-4 weeks (more if acne is worse) and then 3-5 grams/day for maintenance.

    When what I read comes from multiple sources and people whose opinion (read: experience) I value AND when I can't experience something for myself? Yes, yes I do.

    Don't be an ass.

    You're right. It can be an expensive route to take.
