    Re: The idiots guide to B5

    Face Off- The complex you bought only has 100mg of B5 and the recommended dose for acne is 10 grams. That means you would have to take 100 pills a day! You need to find a bottle of B5 that has 500mg a day so you only have to take 20 pills.

    LkK2507- If you are taking a vitamin that only has 10mg in it, that means you would have to take 1,000 of those pills a day to clear your acne! You are not going to notice a difference unless you buy a bottle of b5 specifically.

    usedtobewantsittoend- Nope, haven't seen any webisites that I can recommend.

    Re: The idiots guide to B5

    I just got some b5 (500mg) and I am thinking of taking 4 grams a day because I am also on birth control and I weigh 98 pounds. I was wondering if that is enough to control the oil on my face. Also, I take about two doses of 1000mcg Biotin a day, would that be enough Biotin to prevent my hair from falling out or becoming brittle?

    You don't necessarily need Twinlabs brand - its just a good quality brand in the US. I'm sure there are many quality vitamin products in England. Support your homelands economy!!

    I think it is worth it and so do many people on this board. 20 pills does seem like a lot, but you only have to take that much initially. After you start to clear up you can reduce the amount for maintenance and take between 2-8 pills a day.
