    Gundry MD Primal Plants

    Helped with teenage acne

    Overall Experience:

    My daughter suffers from acne. Not just the common teenage acne, but the type that stars in the deep layers of the skin creating "pustules" those big pimples that can leave scars.

    We were told by two different dermatologist that topical cream or ointment would not solve that problem. Six months of oral Vitamin A could work, but we would have a better chance if she was 16 years or older. So we opted for the second option, which was an oral antibiotic. The problem with that was getting a high enough dose to work without causing uncomfortable side effects (Sulfamethox, Doxycycline).

    After her being on a low dose antibiotic for over eight weeks and still having "pustules," I decided to try Primal Plants.

    Being on antibiotics left her gut low on both "good" and " bad" bacteria. Primal Plants contains a "good" bacteria supplement. I could be wrong, but I think it also has stuff in it that the good bacteria needs in order to live. I also gave her a daily probiotic pill (Dr. Ohhira's) the first week.

    The taste was a problem with Primal Plants. So I put the Primal Plants powder into capsules (empty vegetable capsules size 00 by Alpine). She swallows six capsules (eight capsules would equal one scoop of Primal Plants) and eats one helping of greens a day.

    It took four weeks to see results, but she has stopped having "pustules." She is still using an optical cream (Tretinoin 0.05% and Clindamycin 1% which together equal Ziana) at the present time. We will have to wait and see.

    Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
