Vitamin A And Acne
Vitamin A has been known to help acne breakouts for years. Why it is not used to a greater degree I never understood.
This vitamin is beneficial for many things: night blindness, hormone production, keeping your respiratory, digestive and urinary tract healthy. It also helps your teeth, bones and your skin. And there's the magic word; skin.
Vitamin A has been found to reduce sebum production which causes acne flare-ups. Although, this vitamin can absolutely help you and your acne situation, it has to be used correctly and sparingly. In this case, too much of a good thing can harm you.
Large does of this (upwards of 300,000 IU a day) have been very successful when used to treat cases of severe acne. But as we just stated, be careful. That amount should only be taken under careful supervision of a physician. Vitamin A in those large amounts can be toxic to the body so you are helping one condition and could be actually harming areas of your body including your organs. Without going to that extreme you can help get an abundance of this vitamin into your body by including in your diet: watermelon, cantaloupe, squash, sweet potatoes, carrots, spinach, broccoli and other leafy green vegetables. If you are interested in herbs, alfalfa, cayenne, chickweed and burdock root are great sources for Vitamin A.
Also, when taking Vitamin A or eating large quantities of food high in this particular vitamin, make sure to take Vitamin E, or eat foods rich in that vitamin. This helps it metabolize into the body.
