Progressive Health's Actimine - Product Review  Hot

 

Description

Progressive Health’s Actimine is an all-natural supplement specifically formulated to combat acne breakouts, regulate sebum (skin oil) production and restore skin health. This proprietary formula contains a synergistic blend of researched nutrients including vitamin A, selenium, vitamin E, zinc, and gum guggul. Actimine addresses the cause of acne internally and works to stop the damaging effects of acne breakouts.

One of the causes of acne is believed to be due to the damaging effects of DHT (dihydrotestosterone). DHT is derived directly from the male hormone testosterone. DHT stimulates the production of sebum and keratin (skin cells), which are primary causes of acne. The trace mineral zinc is necessary for the proper metabolism of testosterone. Low zinc levels can increase the conversion of testosterone to DHT. Studies suggest that zinc supplementation can be as effective as antibiotics in reducing acne.

Vitamin A, selenium and vitamin E synergistically reduce skin inflammation and sebum and keratin production. These essential nutrients are potent antioxidants and possess anti-inflammatory properties. Studies suggest that vitamin A, selenium and vitamin E can prevent skin nflammation and significantly reduce acne breakouts.

The botanical, gum guggul, has been used for centuries in Ayurvedic medicine. Research indicates that gum guggul can treat nodulocystic acne. One study, published in the Journal of Dermatology, found that guggul was as effective as tetracycline in treating cystic acne.
