Are You Taking Diet Drugs That May Interfere With Important Vitamins?
Many diet drugs - even the over-the-counter ones like Alli, can affect your complexion and health.
Alli is a fat blocker
meaning it blocks the absorption of those all essential fatty acids and
fat soluble vitamins that help keep the dermis moist and soft.
It binds with those fats so they can't be digested and
carries them out of the body, but that also means your complexion won't
get them either.
Certain fats like omega-3 fatty acids are very important for your complexion. They act as antioxidants to strengthen and protect.
They are important for the life cycle of dermis
cells, and helps prevent acne and dry scaly complexion.
What To Do?
If your dieting and/or taking drugs like Alli make sure you also take a good vitamins that contain fat soluble vitamins (A, D, and E).
Your daily vitamins should contain at least 5,000 IU of vitamin A
(including mixed carotenoids), 400 -800 IU of vitamin D and no less than
400 IU of vitamin E.
And make sure not to take these vitamins when you take Alli – Space them out a few hours before or after taking Alli.
