    The importance of vitamins to Acne

    Acne is one of the most common skin disorders in the United States: over 17 million people suffer from this condition. Eighty five percent of people between 12 and 24 years old have acne.

    Acne is often considered to be an adolescent problem as the vast majority of teenagers suffer, to some degree, from the condition. Usually, acne has cleared up by a person's mid-twenties. This isn't always the case, however, and adult acne plagues some people throughout their lives unless they seek treatment. Diets high in salt, fats, and animal products are contributing factors. Genetics, hormonal imbalance, industrial pollutants, allergies and stress can also make the condition worse.

    Although experts agree that cleaning up your diet and ensuring you have adequate levels of the basic nutrients can help with skin disorders, there are a few strong studies which show friendly bacteria (probiotics) greatly help this condition. In a West German study involving 23 atopic eczema patients and nine healthy controls, participants who took friendly bacteria such as acidophilus showed "clear cut changes toward normal ranges".

    Distinct clinical improvement was recorded in a majority of patients.
    Reasons given for this improvement included the fact that toxins and foods, which are not processed completely, sometimes end up getting eliminated through the skin as acne or eczema. When intestinal friendly flora is compromised due to lifestyle abuses, the body will build up these undigested toxins which, in turn, show up as digestive and skin disorders.
