Accutane Vs Vilantae

Can acne really be treated through an all natural supplement when other treatments have failed? The answer is yes and the truth is that the popular acne drug Accutane is based on a natural source.

The popular acne drug
is actually from vitamin A, but don't rush to the drug store! Vitamin A is only safe in small doses, and small doses of vitamin A are not effective enough to treat acne. Taking Vitamin A in doses large enough to fight acne could be deadly. That is why it was redeveloped into Accutane. Even though
is safer than vitamin A, it is still has many negative side effects.

Fat Soluble Vitamin A

Vitamin A belongs to a class known as "fat soluble." This means the vitamin can only be broken down and stored by being stored in fat cells. The body will store fat soluble vitamins in fat until it uses them.

If the body gets to much of a fat soluble vitamin such that it cannot use, it stores it in fat cells, such as in the liver. The only way the body can dispose of this vitamin is by using it. If the body no longer has room to store the vitamins it can't use, the vitamins will remain in the system until it can. Where there is to much of a substance in the body, that substance then becomes toxic.

That is why drugs like
have so many side effects. Doctors often use
as a last resort. Fat soluble vitamins are generally stored in the liver. This is why blood tests to check the liver are occasionally preformed on those who are on accutane. To ensure the safety of their patients,
is given sparingly and monitored closely.

The fat soluble vitamins are A, D, E and K(think of an addict, or ADEK). All other vitamins are known as "water soluble". They can be taken in large amounts because the body cannot store them in fat. In the body, water is disposed of quite often, along with the water soluble vitamins that are not used by the body.

d-Calcium Pantothenate

A class of vitamins known as d-Calcium pantothenate taken with a B complex is proving to be a safe natural alternative to
. It works in much the same way as Accutane, but is water soluble, which makes it much safer to take in higher dosages.

The two work by decreasing the production of oil. Accutane can completely dry out the oil on a persons skin while d-Calcium pantothenate doesn't dry oil so drastically. The advantages to this method in treating acne is that it will address acne over the entire body including back, neck and face.

Side Effects

There are some side effects to consider with d-Calcium pantothenate, such as stomach irritation, softening of the stool and in some cases head aches. These side effects can be considered mild compared to it's prescription alternative. Often the stomach irritation can be avoided by taking it with meals.

Another draw back is that d-Calcium pantothenate is required in large dosages at first to have any impact on acne. However, over time these dosages can be decreased to a lower amount, allowing a person to remain acne free.

Where to get it sells Vilantae, a supplement of d-Calcium pantothenate mixed with a B complex and provides support and directions on how to take d-Calcium pantothenate for treating acne.

Reduce Skin Oil To Stop Acne

Stopping excess skin oil from being released onto the skin's surface in the first place is the key to stopping acne. Applied products are largely ineffective because they can only address skin oil after the fact.

(isotretinoin) is extremely effective at preventing acne because it shuts down oil production before it reaches the skin's surface. However, it has significant side effects and is only used for extreme cases.

D-Calcium pantothenate doesn't dry out the skin by shutting down the pores completely. It works to prevent only the excess skin oil from being released in the first place. It is 100% all natural, has minimal side effects, and is a step up from applied products in effectiveness.

If applied products haven't worked for you, d-Calcium Pantothenate may be right for you. Vilantae is a brand of d-Calcium Pantothenate that includes a great warrantee. Keep reading to see if Vilantae may be right for you.

D-Calcium Pantothenate is a revolutionary way to fight acne that is just starting to come into mainstream use. Knowledge of its benefits have been relatively unknown until 1997 when Dr. Lit-Hung Leung, M.D. published his studies on d-Calcium Pantothenate's effects in preventing acne. Through years of research, he obtained results that are quite astonishing. The American medical community and the public have been slow to recognize the great effects of Vilantae (d-Calcium Pantothenate). It has had more success in Asia and Hong Kong where the studies originally began and where the medical industry is structured differently (more info on the research and studies).

As a result this may be the first time that you've heard of Vilantae. The news has been spreading mostly through newsletters, acne message forums, back pages on the Internet, and by word of mouth (links to acne message forums that provide first hand REAL and OBJECTIVE accounts of the great benefits of Vilantae (d-Calcium Pantothenate). With the power to eliminate the vast amount of acne suffering in the world and protect so many from the terrible side effects of Accutane (isotretinoin), our hope is that people and the medical community alike will start realizing the great benefits of Vilantae

How it works - stopping oil production before it's released onto the skin's surface is the key to stopping acne.

While you may have heard that acne is caused by different factors including bacteria, increased levels of dead skin cells, inflammation, stress, diet, the immune system, poor hygiene, etc... the truth is that these are merely secondary-causes.

While one could treat the secondary-causes of acne with applied skin products, Vilantae takes the same approach as Accutane (isotretinoin) by focusing closer to the root cause, which is why it's so much more effective. The ultimate root cause is genetics, but short of genetic engineering we cannot fix this problem. We can however focus right above it.

Without overproduction of oil, acne isn't possible and none of the other secondary-causes can play even the slightest role in acne. Applied products fail because they cannot successfully regulate skin oils (why applied products yield poor results). The key to curing acne is stopping the overproduction of oil at its source. That's why Accutane (isotretinoin) is so effective, but it has numerous side effects and other downsides. Vilantae (d-Calcium Pantothenate) on the other hand, has minimal side effects, is 100% natural, and is second only to Accutane (isotretinoin) in terms of effectiveness.

So how exactly do genetics lead to this overproduction of oil?

Unfortunately, many dermatologists are not clear about the causes of acne. It is implied that the exact causes of acne are unknown, but in truth most of the causes are known. The mystery lies in why genetics cause an overproduction of oil, only now we have a pretty good idea.

The reason too much oil is being released has to do with the lipids and fatty acid deposits underneath the skin not getting broken down and re-circulated into the bloodstream. Instead they are being released as sebum (oil). What enables our body to break down these fatty acids is directly related to an enzyme called coenzyme A, which is an essential enzyme to the body and is used for fatty acid metabolism.

Coenzyme A is also responsible for other important aspects of the body including sex hormone synthesis. When there is a lack of coenzyme A, the body is forced to choose between using the available coenzyme A for sex hormone synthesis or for metabolizing fats (the breakdown of fats). Hormone synthesis is given the priority (without it sex organs do not develop) and as result, the body has trouble breaking down all of the necessary fats. Fats that should have been broken down and re-circulated into the bloodstream, instead become deposited in the sebaceous glands (sweat glands) and secreted as oil. Oil is fat only in liquid form. Because teenagers have the highest hormone production rate, they are also the group with the highest amounts of acne.

The body produces coenzyme A from three different components: adenosine triphosphate, cysteine, and Vilantae (d-Calcium Pantothenate). Adenosine triphosplate and cysteine are naturally produced within the body through various glands. They are always plentiful so long as the body's not terribly malnourished. Vilantae (d-Calcium Pantothenate) is the only one that must be supplied from outside the body through one's diet. When there is enough Vilantae (d-Calcium Pantothenate) available in the diet, the deficiency in coenzyme A is eliminated. As a result, a person's fatty acids get broken down and the skin doesn't over release oil. Without the over releasing of oil, acne does not occur.

The role of genetics. Why does Vilantae require megadosing during the first three months?

Switching to a diet high in Vilantae (d-Calcium Pantothenate) is not enough to help acne and in most cases will do very little. The reason for this is our bodies have trouble absorbing the necessary amounts of Vilantae (d-Calcium Pantothenate) due to our genetic programming.

In theory, lets suppose a person naturally consumes an average of 500 milligrams of d-Calcium Pantothenate per a day. The person has moderate acne because their body does not have enough coenzyme A resources to produce hormones and break down fatty acids at the same time. If that were true the same person who consumes 500 milligrams a day could take 1 gram a day and have enough to produce sex hormones and break down fatty acids at the same time. However, this just isn't the case.

The body has trouble producing enough coenzyme A for the breakdown of fatty acids even though the supply of d-Calcium Pantothenate may be "adequate." It has nothing to do with the other two components of coenzyme A, but is merely a matter of getting the body to absorb the necessary d-Calcium Pantothenate and actually produce the coenzyme A. Even though the body is capable of doing this, it doesn't do it efficiently because it lacks the proper genetic programming.

Consequently, one must take large amounts of Vilantae through our special Evolution-X Vilantae Supplements/Liquid Red in order to be effective. By having an abundant supply it forces the body to produce enough coenzyme A allowing for the breakup of fatty acids and the prevention of oil (further evidence on why this is true).

It's also important to have the nutrients available that assist in the absorption of Vilantae, the allocation of coenzyme A, and the breakdown of carbohydrates. Vilantae's supplements are specially formulated with the necessary nutrients, and as a result our Vilantae is more effective than other forms of d-Calcium Pantothenate. It uses superior ingredients and the compression ratio is far superior allowing for higher concentrations of d-Calcium in the given capsule size. On top of that, its prices are the lowest you'll find anywhere. Vilantae offers a full money back guarantee plus an additional $50 if you don't get results. You won't find a better guarantee anywhere.

What it all comes down to.

If you're tired of fooling around with applied skin products and want something that is truly effective at preventing acne then you want the specially formulated Vilantae Supplements/Liquid Red. They're 100% safe with minimal side effects, completely all natural, and unlike every other product on the market they will not dry out your skin! (not even to the slightest degree)
