Hello, I have a small book at home called the MSM miracle written by Dr. Earl Mindell and there is a small section in the book that talks about the benefit of MSM for acne. It says: " Acne involves overproduction of sebum and consequently breaks out in the most dense locations of sebaceous glands. Male sex hormones such as testosterone stimulate production of keratin and sebum, enlarging the sebaceous glands. Hormone levels increase at puberty in both boys and girls, but are higher in males, which are the reasons why acne afflicts mainly teenagers and is most common in males. Teenagers will be heartened to learn that studies have been conducted which indicate that acne, including the severe acne rosacea, responds favorably to a diet supplemented with MSM ". It's not big news but I just wanted to share this with you. On the internet you can also find lots of info on the benefits of MSM for acne. To anyone interested, the normal dosage is 3000 mg a day or 1000 mg 3 times a day with meals. Dosages recommended seem to be in the areas of 2000 mg to 6000 mg daily.
