Learn more about the ingredients in Actimine.
Daily Dosage: As a dietary supplement, take two capsules in the morning and one capsule in the evening with 8 ounces of water. 45-60 days of continuous use is necessary for optimum results.
Vitamin A- Vitamin A has been shown to reduce sebum production and the buildup of keratin in the follicle. Vitamin A is more effective when used in conjunction with Vitamin E and Zinc.
Selenium and Vitamin E- When there is a Vitamin E deficiency in your body, your levels of Vitamin A will stay low, no matter how much you are supplementing into your diet. When Vitamin E is restored to the diet, Vitamin A levels normalize- this is why it is important to use these vitamins in combination.
Vitamin E is important for its interactions with Selenium, which is an important antioxidant trace mineral. Selenium has been shown to have a function in the enzyme glutathione perozidase. This enzyme plays a crucial role in preventing acne inflammation. Those who experience acne usually have low levels of glutathione perozidase. After supplementing Vitamin E and Selenium into your diet, acne can be significantly diminished. (1)
Zinc- Zinc is a very important nutrient for the health of the skin. Zinc is involved in the proper metabolism of testosterone. When zinc levels are low, there is an increase in the conversion of testosterone to DHT. It is known that DHT stimulates the manufacture of sebum and keratin which are primary factors in causing acne. Only certain forms of zinc have proven to be effective. These include effervescent zinc and zinc gluconate. (2)
Methylsulfonyl Methane- Has been shown to improve the permeability of cell walls which allows nutrients to flow in and out of cells with ease. This helps deliver nutrients to the cells and dispose of wastes.
Gum Guggul Ext.- Studies have shown that Guggul Ext can effectively help with nodulocyctic acne. A study with 20 patients showed that Guggul is more effective that Tetracycline. (3)
