I definitely think I'm onto something here, although I appreciate this may just be for me and this might not apply to others as I think B5 seems to work differently for everyone.

As I posted earlier in this thread, due to a return of my acne I started on B5 again. I've been taking NOW Foods 500mg capsules in the following regime giving me a total of 11g a day.

5 at 8:00am, 5 at 1:00pm, 5 at 6:00pm, 7 at 11:00pm.

My skin became nice and dry and my acne started to subside, but my hair started thinning once more. I had some Vilantae (Evolution-X) left over from my last attempt to decrease the hairloss effects, but this time I decided to stick with the NOW 100% B5 brand and only substitute one pill at each time for the Vilantae (Evolution-X) brand.

This means that my regime was:

8:00am - 4 x Now 500mg, 1 x Vilantae 500mg
1:00pm - 4 x Now 500mg, 1 x Vilantae 500mg
6:00pm - 4 x Now 500mg, 1 x Vilantae 500mg
11:00pm - 4 x Now 500mg, 2 x Vilantae 500mg

Each Vilantae capsule contains:

Thiamine - 1mg
Riboflavin - 1.15mg
Niacin - 0.7mg
B6 - 1.33mg
Folic Acid - 20mcg
B12 - 4mcg
Biotin - 60mcg
B5 - 510mg
Chromium - 3mcg
Manganese - 0.1mg
Molybdenum - 3mcg
Selenium - 2mcg
Zinc 0.5mg
Alpha Lipoic Acid - 2mg

Over a few days my oiliness and acne slowly returned despite the small intake of the Vilantae (Evolution-X) capsules compared to ratio of pure NOW Foods B5. The hairloss slowed down though but I couldn't deal with the acne again so I've dropped the Vilantae.

I'm convinced that my body is sensitive to one of or a combination of the B vitamins which results in acne. B5 works for me by making me deficient in the B vitamin/s that are responsible for my acne. As soon as I add the B vitamin/s back to my regime in the form of a B complex or even in doses as small as those contained within Vilantae, my acne returns.

I wonder if those who have tried B5 in significant quantity and for a significant length of time in the past and have said it hasn't worked for them have been taking a B complex which has been affecting them in the same way as me.

I'm going to order all the B vitamins individually in small doses and add them one at a time to try and identify which ones seem to trigger my acne and which ones help with hairloss. My concern at this stage is that the same B vitamin that helps with my hairloss also triggers my oily skin and acne again.

Very interesting Craig!

If we can isolate that one VITAMIN that is responsible for the hair loss and for the causal of your acne, we will be able to supplement B5 + that vitamin/s and nothing more and that should help both acne and hair loss.

Good luck my friend, I am very anoxious to hear about your progress.
