    I've used Saw Palmetto, nettle and beta sitosterol.

    I used Saw PAlmetto and Zinc for nearly a year and it made my skin a lot less oily and my face was mostly clear. I added nettle, but then I also changed my diet and added more supplements like fish oil. My skin cleared completely, but I can't say for sure what did it. I think diet was the biggest thing. I've since dropped Nettle and saw palmetto and only take the zinc that's in my multi and my skin is still clear.

    How long did it take for the saw palmetto and zinc to kick in?

    I'm sorry, I don't know. It took me a while to grasp that my skin was no longer oily. I kept buying oil absorbing moisturizer and acne topicals and now how full bottles of things never used.

    A woman posted here once that Nettle cured her teen son in about a month I think. Search for posts by Nettleworks.
