Saw palmetto was my cure


I'm trying to post this around on boards that I used to frequent for advice - I consider myself cured of Acne now!

For the past 5 months, I have been taking 320mg of standardized saw palmetto (GNC) in 2 divided doses (one pill in am, one in pm, or just take both together if I forget). It's very important to get the standardized version.

I'm 30 y.o. female who has suffered with moderate to cystic Acne since puberty, trying everything, including megadosing on B6, except accutane because I have joint problems already.

And now my skin is now AMAZING, I honestly don't recognize it. It took a month or so to see results. And now I've only had one tiny whitehead in I don't know how long. My oily pores have shrunk. My skin is thinner if that makes sense, not so congested and thick and oily. It just glows - the color is more even, less red. My scalp is no longer as oily either.

I've been reading about the hormonal connections of Acne for some time. I got many tests done and I'm totally normal, including a low normal reading of testosterone. But from my reading I understand it's the conversion of testosterone to DHT, the active form in the skin, that could play a role. Saw Palmetto inhibits this conversion. I guess I just inherited this skin sensitivity. (My dad and brother suffer from early balding, could that be a link?)

SP has mainly been studied for inhibiting DHT effects on the prostate in men.
