I recently started using Alpha Male after having a break from Tribulus products and as expected my acne started to flare up a bit. It is fairly mild, and no where near the levels that led me to do a course of Accutane about 4 years ago.
I did a search on here and someone recommended Pantothenic Acid (Vit B5) so I thought that I would give it a go. After doing some more research I found out that the recommended dose for treating acne is anywhere up to 5-10 grams a day.
Considering I could only find 250mg grams tablets I decided to start on a lower dose and just see what happened. I had a couple of days at 2 grams and now having either 1 or 2 grams a day and my skin is looking better than ever (and none of the fun side effects of Accutane)
I have changed nothing else in my diet or training so I am pretty confident that the Pantothenic Acid is doing the job. I have done some more research about supplementing B5 and the only concerns that I can see are the potential for it to lead to a deficiency in other B vitamins.
I would appreciate it if anyone knows of any other concerns that I should be aware of.
Just thought that I would share my story for any others that may be in a similar situation. Keep in mind that I said my acne (only facial) was fairly mild to start with.
