Post SweetJade: How much Vit. A?

Sweetjade, after beening off accutane for like 4 months I think my ance is gradualy comming back. It is not as bas as before. I am taking 75,000 IU of Beta Carotene (Vit A) and 24,000 of Vitamin A fish oil. Is that okay to take i know i can take high amount of Beta. Could i safety take more fish oil or should i stay with that? I am trying to get the most effect but safest amount of Vitamin A. Thankyou

Don't take vitamin A at it is toxic in large doses. All you need to take is Beta Carotene which is a pre-cursor to vitamin A; you body converts Beta Carotene into vitamin A. I would probably stay away from fish oil as it potentially loaded with mercury. I think there might be some safe brands out there, but I'm not too sure. Why don't you look into safer modalities for treatment like Saw Palmetto, Beta Sitosterol and Essential Fatty Acids.

Re: SweetJade: How much Vit. A?

i take 40,000iu of vitamin A, along with i think another 3500iu of beta carotene from my multivitimin

i know everyone say this is bad for you and everything, but it has helped me a lot, and i can tell that ever since i started taking it, it is harder for me to get zits.
