Chewing tablets to get rid of acne

Hey all! I just picked up these chewable Acne Relief tablets at the Vitamin Shoppe that promise to clear up the acne and prevent new pimples from forming. It says its a "homeopathic" remedy, I was just wondering if its safe though? I'm willing to down it if it'll improve my yucky skin. Here's what it says its got: Belladonna(Nightshade)6X, Ledum palustre(Wild Rosemary) 6X, Sulphur(Sulfur) 6X, 12X, 30X, Graphites(Graphite) 10X, 20X, 30X, Bromium(Bromine) 12X, Hepar Sulphuris Calcareum(Calcium Sulphide) 12X, Kali bromatum (Potassium Bromide) 12X, Selenium(Selenium) 12X, Natrum Muriaticum (Sodium Chloride) 30X. Any of the nutrition buffs that can make sense of this, I'd be so happy. Also if anyone has tried it (it's called "Acne Relief Natural Homeopathic Medicine" from Natra-Bio) and has a testimonal to share, do tell! I want to find that magical pill that will make it all go away.

Re: Chewing tablets to get rid of acne

I read the ingredients you listed and became alarmed when I saw the name Belladonna. Belladonna, also called "deadly nightshade", is a poisonous hallucinogen. Just thought I'd warn you.

Re: Chewing tablets to get rid of acne

Maybe they are trying to get you to hallucinate that you have clear skin. I don't think that there is a pill out there that will work. You can try a multiple vitamin suppliment to make sure that your body is not deficient in anything but If the doctors don't have a magic pill then there is almost no chance that any regular store will.

Re: Chewing tablets to get rid of acne

It's a homeopathic remedy. That means the herbs are diluted to vanishingly small amounts of the ingredient. A homeopathic remedy will either work positively or have no effect. They are safe that way.
