Although I eat a healthy and good diet, I was suggested to take Vitamin B12. Vitamin B-12 is a vitamin which is important for the normal functioning of the brain and nervous system. Fruits and vegetables are often a good source of vitamins. I guess eating more fruits could help to solve many problems. In large doses, some vitamins have documented side effects that tend to be more severe with a larger dosage. Overdosing from vitamin supplementation does occur. At high enough dosages some vitamins cause side effects such as nausea, diarrhea, and vomiting etc.

Recommended Food To Get Rid Of Common Acne

A recommended list of food rich in zinc and vitamin C to fight with common acne.

Acne is an infection of the skin, caused by changes in the sebaceous glands. The most common form of acne is called acne vulgaris, which means common acne. The redness comes from the inflammation of the skin in response to the infection. Bad acne often leads to bad scars where the skin has the shape of a volcano. It is difficult and expensive to treat acne scars.

A mix of commercial and homemade treatments including diet can help with acne for various reasons. Try the following:

  1. Cut down sweets, salted snacks, sugar, chocolates
  2. Eat zinc rich food such as shellfish, nuts, spinach (boiled) Lamb loin (roasted), green peas (boiled), yogurt low-fat, Crimini mushrooms, raw etc.
