Acne Pills - How to Choose the Right One

Jun 30, 2008
Fish oil, anti-acne vitamins, and probiotics are all great acne supplements that really work. Too bad most acne supplements fall short of the most important ingredients. And even if some of them have the optimal amounts, the quality of these key ingredients makes it hard for your body to absorb and next to useless. Below are three guidelines to take when choosing an acne supplement:

1. Make sure the acne supplement has scientific evidence to back up their claims.

Many acne supplements that claim to have found a secret exotic herb in some jungle are usually made up by some marketing magician. His primary goal is to sell and make money for his company, not give you real clear skin results.

Be careful of these herbal pills because many do not have the scientific research to back them up to give you acne-free skin. Look for an acne supplement with real clinical studies done on them.

2. Omega-3 supplements should come from a fish source.

Adding fish to your diet can do wonders for your acne and your overall health. But when looking for an Omega-3 supplement, make sure your Omega-3 supplement is made from fish. I am sure that the Omega-3 from flaxseed (alpha-linolenic acid) and other plant sources may help, but they are not as heavily researched as supplements made from actual fish.

Additionally, make sure that that you are getting two grams or more of the actual Omega-3 fatty acids daily and not just the fish oil. Look in back of the label and make sure that the Eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) contents are high enough to meet this requirement.

Also, make sure that the capsules are enteric coated. This is because regular fish oils break down too easily in your stomach acids resulting in less of the Omega-3 absorbed in your body. When fish oil is enteric coated, most of the Omega-3 acids are released in your intestine giving you full acne fighting impact.

3. Make sure your anti-acne vitamins and minerals are easily absorbed by your body.

A famous anti-acne vitamin used extensively is zinc. The problem is that you usually find the cheapest form of zinc (oxide) in most supplements. Make sure that your zinc comes from an organic form like zinc-picolinate because your body can utilize it much more readily.

Another is synthetic Vitamin E (Dl-alpha Tocopheryl Succinate) and natural Vitamin E (D-alpha Tocopheryl Succinate). Look at the back of the label and make sure the vitamin E doesn't not contain the "L" in D-alpha because this "L" shows that the Vitamin E is the synthetic kind. Make sure you get natural vitamin E because your body absorbs it at a much higher rate than synthetic.

The same goes for chromium (make sure it is of the Chelavite type) and selenium (make sure it is of the L-Selenomethionine type) because both are absorbed up to an incredible 600% more in your body.

In conclusion, make sure that you at least follow all of these guidelines. There are many other factors for the perfect acne supplement, but start off with these three guidelines because you will soon notice a dramatic difference in your acne and skin complexion.
