If so what form did you take. I do not like liver so I will supplement. I do not know if I should take a concentrated liver extract or just a liver oil supplement. I have read blue ice clo is good but there is no iu on the vit a content. Maybe a concentrated liver oil with high vit a and the blue ice clo?

I don't understand the low pufa in relation to acne. Being as people like dr perricone are advocating high pufa diets for acne with reports success as well

Oh I'm sure it's a high dose, but no higher than what others here have used for acne, and I also supplement 8k IU D. The lamb livers I buy are about 1.5 lbs, and I go through one of those in maybe 2 weeks. Most any A supplement you'll find is extracted from fish liver, and since they'd be lacking the PUFA, I don't see what would be wrong with it.

This is not what I wanted to hear. How much liver do you consume? It might be acting as a megadose vit a

I think that 50mg/day of zinc helps with my acne. I think that I tend to start breaking out when I stop the zinc, and the zits recede when I start again.

My dandruff/eczema went away on Paleo (+goat/sheep fermented dairy). It became lesser immediately, but it went away completely about 3 months after I started the diet. I supplement with a lot of things, but not A. The main ones to supplement are D3, Mg, K2, fish/krill oil. The rest can help, but they're not required if you're eating enough of the right things. This is what I eat: http://eugenia.queru.com/2011/10/20/how-to-make-free-healthcare-cheap/#update2 and these are my staples: http://eugenia.queru.com/2012/03/05/top-10-must-eat-paleo-foods/

I didn't have acne, so I can't comment on that. I mean, I had bits of acne on my back, and on my nose that became much better on Paleo, but I didn't have any major problem with acne.
