“Does Mega Dose Vitamin B5 Acne Treatment Work? Is It Safe?”
Find Out What We’ve Uncovered Before You Try B5 Acne TreatmentWouldn’t it be a dream come true… you just pop b5 acne vitamin and POOF your acne’s gone… no side effects and completely safe.
That’s what so many of the proponents of pantothenic acid acne supplements are claiming.
According to the b5 acne theory to cure acne all you’ve got to do is take EXTRAORDINARILY high doses of pantothenic acid (vitamin b5) and your acne will disappear.
What’s the real scoop?
Well, I’ve spent considerable time, money, and experimentation and put several volunteers through substantial discomfort and risk to bring to you the real scoop about the vitamin b5 acne theory.
In this report I’m going to reveal to you all the shocking details about the vitamin b5 acne theory.
The Vitamin B5 Acne Phenomenon: What Started it All…
The vitamin b5 acne phenomenon all started with a paper published by a doctor named Lit-Hung Leung.
In this paper he proposes a theory that acne is caused by a deficiency in vitamin b5.
So summarize Leung’s theory…
High fat diets aggravate acne because the body is not metabolizing fats properly. (I certainly don’t agree with this, I’m just summarizing his theory.) Coenzyme-A is necessary for the metabolization of fat.
Coenzyme-A is formed from adenosine triphosphate, cysteine, and pantothenic acid. And of those pantothenic acid (b5) is often the deficient one. So if you don’t get enough pantothenic acid then your body can’t make enough coenzyme-A.
Here’s where Leung’s theory gets interesting…
Coenzyme-A is necessary for both fat metabolization and hormone synthesis. And if coenzyme-A is lacking then hormone synthesis takes precedence over fat metabolization.
So when you’re body’s producing lots of hormones (for instance during puberty) then your body needs more coenzyme-A to synthesis those hormones, and if coenzyme-A is lacking then your body will choose to synthesize hormones rather then metabolize fats.
According to his b5 acne theory fats start to accumulate in the skin’s oil gland causing an increase in sebum…which leads to acne.
So what he’s saying is that the reason acne is associated with hormones isn’t because of the hormones themselves. But because the hormones are robbing coenzyme-A for hormone synthesis that could be used for fatty acid metabolization if there was an abundacne of coenzyme-A.In effect fatty acid metabolization is getting shafted by excess hormones.
And to correct a coenzyme-A deficiency all you need to do is take as high as 10 to 20 GRAMS (Not milligrams) of pantothenic acid (b5) a day.
