SkinB5’s Extra Strength Acne Control Tablets are a game-changer. There has never been a formula designed that is quite like it to be as effective at naturally treating acne. It’s important to understand that the management & treatment of acne should come from within, because it is the body’s internal responses that stimulate things like production of excess sebum which is very common in moderate to severe acne.
Let’s talk about the science behind it. Sebum in our skin is designed to lubricate, moisturise and protect our skin, it’s very important - but too much of it can block the pores and makes a perfect environment for bacteria to thrive, all of which contributes majorly to acne. Sebum is made of fats, oils & waxes, so when you have an over production of the sebum or blockages occurring, the body needs to break it down better to prevent acne lesions occurring. Pantothenic Acid (aka vitamin B5) increases the production of CoEnzyme A, and the more CoEnzyme A you have, the more fatty acids can be broken down in the body. If the body is breaking down your fatty acids better, you are less likely to get an overproduction of things like sebum, and less likely to provide an environment for bacteria to thrive!
Studies have shown that the effects of vitamin B5 as a natural treatment for acne are nothing short of amazing, and when combined with other vitamins & minerals such as the ones found in the Extra Strength Tablets, the patients get even better results.
For example, the Extra Strength Tablets also contain zinc, a potent mineral which many people can be deficient in. Zinc is involved in over 300 different processes in the body, and it has been shown to increase wound healing, and is very important for the immune system. Zinc is also important for hormonal production, and can assist in decreasing inflammation. I would be here all day if I were to tell you about all the things that zinc does in the body!
Copper, vitamin B3 & folic acid are also in the formula. Copper has also been shown to be important in the treatment of acne – a study from 2006 showed that the combination of copper, zinc, B3 and folic acid had great benefits for acne.
The other ingredients found in the Extra Strength tablets are:
Vitamin A, which has been widely used & studied for its ability to assist acne. Vitamin A is really important for the immune system which can help to prevent infections in the skin.
Silica is added to assist in skin healing & cell renewal – silica is really important for collagen & connective tissue, and helps improve the condition of hair, skin & nails.
Biotin is also added, which can have a therapeutic action on acne due to its ability to assist the fatty acid breakdown, alongside vitamin B5.
As you can see, the ingredients in the Extra Strength formula are all specifically designed for skin healing, reducing inflammation, and controlling sebum – naturally.
The Extra Strength tablets are best taken by someone who has moderate to severe acne, enlarged pores and/or oily skin. It is the best choice for body acne and can be used in conjunction with the Caplets for hormonal or adult acne, because the caplets contain the extra hormonal balancing ingredients. The extra strength tablets really are a game changer, because of the combination effect of the vitamins & minerals, and often people can see results rather quickly. For severe acne, patients can take up to 2 tablets 3x day, with food.
