I have oily(face)skin.Currently oil cleansing w/Sweet Almond Oil.Does oil really decrease the overproduction of sebum or will it cause more oiliness?
How much inflammation does aspirin and fish oil really reduce in high risk patients with cad? Does it reduce plaque buildup?
Depends: Nothing much can make up for the typical horrible American diet and lack of exercise, and smoking. Pills without lifestyle changes can help some but there is clinical evidence that a 10% fat diet does REDUCE plaque over time. See the Dean Ornish, M.D. diet plan. And do what your doc recommends medicine-wise. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Can refined sweet almond oil be used over glyc acid or retinol to prevent redness and help hydratation? I read that this oil helps exfoliate the skin
Not alone: Almond oil alone isn't an exfoliant which "removes dead skin cells" that requires the addition of either an acid(like glycolic or alpha hydroxy which chemically remove cells) or mechanical means(like sugar, salt, walnut shell). It is an emollient which "hydrates" and softens skin and may reduce redness. Retinols work at a molecular level to alter skin thickness, pigmentation and collagen. ...Read more
What are the benefits of taking collagen capsules? 4 capsules daily. Hydrolyzed marine collagen and elastin polypeptides.
Not much evidence: There aren't a lot of studies out that have tested the health effects of all these collegen supplements.One study found that it does not really help with bone health,and another showed some preservation of lean body mass in older women but no skin improvement.It seems that elastin skin products have not shown clinically to improve elasticity of the skin but do help the skin hold moisture. ...Read more
DERMATOLOGISTS: Will taking collagen capsules help with fine lines over time? Ingredients:hydrolyzed marine collagen, elastin polypeptides
I really doubt it.: Protein is digested and absorbed. It's doubtful that a small amount of a particular protein is going to be 'special' compared to a burger. Less collagen, degraded protein loss of subcutaneous fat are aging features that promote crow's feet and specific dietary proteins just aren't going to change any of that. ...Read more
Does olive oil extra virgin and pure coconut oil penetrate hair shaft? Are these oils even worth it to condition & strengthen hair/scalp?
Perhaps: Oils do indeed penetrate the skin. Many things penetrate the skin. Indeed, some say that you should not put anything on your skin you are not willing to eat or drink, including your makeup n rubbing alcoh. I do not know about conditioning and strengthening hair, but these oils will penetrate any skin, and coconut oil is good for you--even as a lotion for your skin. wwwlblatmanhealthandwellness.com ...Read more

Marine Fish Oil: lowers triglycerides. You need to use fish oil in which each capsule contains 50% or more of the combination of EPA & DHA and is purified. Check the label.

Yes: The omega-3 fatty acids in fish oil have anti-inflammatory effects. Aside from fish oil which provides dha and epa, other good sources of the omega-3 ala are the algae that the fish eat, vegetable oils, such as soybean, rapeseed (canola), and flaxseed, walnuts, and some green vegetables, such as brussels sprouts, kale, spinach, and salad greens. The converts small amounts of ala to epa and dha. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
