    Default Advice on supplements

    Next month will be one whole year since the rosacea and seb derm started for me. It's still weird for me to even say that when I'm only 15 but anyway I need some advice on supplements. Which ones have worked and which ones should I avoid? I have persistent redness but also I have very long flare ups. Food is a huge part for me. I'm doing juicing right now but it hasn't been that long yet to say if I think it's helping. Also if anyone can explain to me why you have to cycle supplements that would be helpful. Just share any experience you have had with supplements. Thank you!

    You may experience flushing to ANY supplement you take, though it's rare.

    A quick list of what I take:

    Grapeseed Extract
    Fish Oil
    Evening Primrose Oil
    Alpha Lipoic Acid
    Coenzyme Q 10
    N-Acetyl Cysteine

    The last 6 can be purchased in bulk powder and you can make your own capsules--way cheaper. They're extremely potent anti-inflammatories and mitochondrial boosters.

    20 + laser treatments.
    Toleraine Soothing Light Facial Fluid for moisturizer. I don't use a special cleanser. Clonidine daily; klonopin sometimes.
    BEST and CURRENT TREATMENT I use: Low-Level Red Light Therapy LED array.
    Please feel free to PM me with your low-level red light therapy (LLRLT) questions. I'm happy to help if I can.

    Protein supplements don't increase weight, mass gainers do. More importantly, you need to be eating more calories which is better got from food.
    What you need is 1 gm protein per pound of body weight. This is for muscle building nutrition. You should also be getting 2500 calories a day (calculated based on your age, height, weight) to gain 1 pound per week.
