I've just read in a newspaper that a swedish doctor researching acne discovered that people who have acne prone skin are low in selenium , Has anybody tried taking selenium and if so what type of results did you see, He also reccomends cutting out refined carbohydrates as they cause a rush in hormones thus producing further skin oil and spots.
I,ve tried selenium shampoo for dandruff but never for spots

Re: Selenium

Not sure if it's true or not, but I was browsing a site on selenium and it said:

"If you decide to supplement, take 200 micrograms per day. Supplements made from organic forms of selenium (selenomethionine and high-selenium yeast) are absorbed more efficiently than inorganic forms. Since vitamin E and selenium work in tandem, consider buying a supplement that combines the two nutrients. Look for a broad-based antioxidant supplement that contains selenium, vitamin E and vitamin C.

Do not exceed 400 micrograms of selenium per day. Higher doses can cause loss of hair and fingernails, nausea, depression and anxiety."
