Designs For Health Acnutrol 180c have been formulated to provide comprehensive support for healthy acne control by focusing on the internal healing process and overall skin health.
There are various factors that cause and contribute to acne, the most common skin disease in the US, with two of the main culprits being bacteria and the inflammatory response. Going hand in hand with these are systemic oxidative stress, insulin resistance, hormonal imbalances and an altered intestinal microflora.
The nutrients in Acnutrol™ work synergistically to target these factors, addressing the root causes of this skin condition that afflicts millions of people.
Pantothenic acid (vitamin B5) plays a significant role in the maintenance of keratinocytes, the predominant cell type in the epidermis, the outermost layer of the skin. Research shows that when pantothenic acid is depleted, keratinocyte proliferation is suppressed. Pantothenic acid also helps to regulate lipid metabolism (which gets disrupted during acne breakouts), working to transport of fats across cell membranes. With proper lipid metabolism, there is a decrease in the excretion of sebum. The skin pores can revert back to a smaller, more normal size, leaving the skin much smoother.
Carnitine is an Essential cofactor in lipid metabolism; it's an indispensable nutrient in supporting the transport of fatty acids into the mitochondria where they can be oxidized and used for the production of cellular energy. It is a Potent anti-inflammatory and immune-supportive nutrient; it plays a key factor in decreasing oxidative stress. It is found in cells throughout the body including skin fibroblasts, and is necessary for cellular repair and prevents cells from self-destructing by fighting against free radicals. It also helps pantothenic acid work more efficiently in lipid metabolism.
