Newbie needs opinion....

Postby iluvsun » Tue May 15, 2007 7:22 am

Hello everyone...I'm really glad this message board exists! Well, to the point.....I was in our local health food/supplement store and over heard the owner talking to another customer about how she will never go another day with MSM and why. So I did a bit of research on it. I learned that it can be beneficial for those with acne. I am 38, as of today in fact, and have mild to moderate adult acne. I feel pretty certain that it is hormonal. I purchased the powdered version that the ower of the store recommended. It's Jarrow MSM with the OptiMSM stamp. I started out for a couple of days of 1000mg in the a.m. and 1000mg in the p.m. Then I bumped it up to 2000mg in the a.m. and 2000mg in the p.m. and have been doing that for about 5 days now. I then noticed, on the 3rd day at this dose a huge breakout. Is this normal? Is this all part of the detoxing process? Am I upping my dosage to much to soon? I have no other side effects that I am currently aware of besides noticably more energy throughout the day (but I hardly think of that as a side effect, in a negative way). Should I just push through at this dose for a few more days and then up it again? What does everyone think?

Hi iluvsun.
Happy Birthday and welcome to the board. :)

My opinion only...
If it was me , I would chalk that up to detox.
I would stay at your current level for a few more days and see how things develop.
Some people seem to be able to increase at a faster pace than others.
I would also be drinking plenty of water if you aren't already.
Good luck and keep us posted on your progress.
Greg

I second Greg's opinion on the water. If you don't flush the toxins out through the urine, they just come out another way (like through the skin). Stick with it and I think you'll be happy with the results in the long run if not for the short term.
