Is it true that fish oil pills helps acne go away and hair grow?

You deserve better. With the disappointing studies of fish-oil tablets for vascular health over the last several years, perhaps they're being promoted for everything else. Acne's easily manageable but "pop" remedies will disappoint you. If you're having hair loss, especially if you're a female, your physician needs to know about it -- you may be seriously sick. Best wishes.

Fish oil's your business -- the recent studies are disappointing. Read more...
