BETTER SKIN! Sisson's Damage Control Master Formula and nutrients

Answered on August 19, 2014
Created July 20, 2011 at 2:34 PM

Has anyone used Mark Sisson's formula and noticed a great skin glow? I have lots of beta carotene in my diet regularly so I always have clear skin from paleo eating and a glow from the nutrients, but Sisson's gives me a great look. Wondering which nutrients in his formula do that??

Also, there probably are related threads that I'll look at, but what have people found that gives them a great dark, glowing skin tone?

Edit from Chase: I should rephrase....which nutrients in his formula produce the effect? So that we can just buy them seperately

That is a lot of Vitamin A...

Holy mega-doses Batman! I feel like taking all that after having some nutrient dense food like liver or oysters could leave me in the hospital.

I will admit though : it's tempting. So tempting. I'd love to try it out when I'm eating really well (nose-to-tail + lots of different animals + lots of greens), just to see how healthy one can become.

not to mention your bodily "maintenance" should be up to par or as best you could get it( fitness/posture, habits or lack thereof) but i guess thats a given here. premium gas doesnt do squat for a car that needs an oil change or alignment work, right?

That's what I've heard; it's too "potent".

Nope. Sorry. I'm not into paying $130 for a month supply of vitamins ;-)

Skin needs fats and collagen to have good integrity. I find my skin is happiest when I get omega 3's from my FCLO and plenty of good fats and even homemade bone broth! :D I also wash with egg yolks from time to time and moisturize with coconut oil - no need to buy fancy pants products :D

I like Mark Sisson too and I appreciate his blog a lot but I'm not likely to pay the man that much money for prettier skin, my skin isn't doing too bad on it's own lol

If you take a look at the above image, that's a HUGE list of supplements. Lots of them are unnecessary. While 130$ is okay (if you'd replace that combination of supps with individual supplements you'd lose much more), it's wasted money.

Everyone who takes such a long list of supplement should question their diet. I take something like 6 or 7 different supplements, and already feel lazy/guilty that I do. 50 supps ... that's just ridiculous.

How about vegs and fruits high in carotenoids? Like bell pepper, tomatoes and carrot, perhaps berries.
