Vitamin B12 and Acne

Commented on July 22, 2013

Hi Paleohackers!

Recently I've been looking at my diet on Cronometer and realized that I've been consistently getting more than 1600% of the RDA for B12 daily (combination of beef, liver, occasionally oysters), and my skin has been breaking out more than usual. I hope it's not the B12 because I really need to eat the liver for my skin though...! Fingers crossed.

Did a quick google search and people notice also that when they get B12 shots they tend to get bad breakouts too, though certainly I'm sure a B12 shot isn't exactly the same as food sources of B12.

Has anyone else noticed a link between their B12 consumption and acne flare-ups?

Thanks! :)

This is an interesting question! Since going Paleo a year ago, my digestion and skin issues have greatly improved. The only bad side effect has been acne on my face, something I've never had before. Ive been wondering why this is. I eat lots of beef and lamb daily. Im curious to see if excessive b12 causes acne, too.
