Vitiligo vitamins

vitiligo vitamins

Based on evidence that oxidative stress is involved in the pathogenesis of vitiligo, it appears that antioxidant supplements are helping vitiligo patients regain pigment.

In the November 2008 issue of Dermatology Times, dr. Pearl Grimes, one of the scientists working to find a cure for this skin disorder, says that based on clinical trials she recommends her vitiligo patients the following vitamins:

  • vitamin E
  • Vitamin C
  • coenzyme Q10
  • folic acid
  • vitamin B12
  • a high potency multivitamin
  • alpha lipoic acid

Dr. Grimes uses the vitamin regime combined with nbUVB with encouraging results. But what is the idea behind a vitamin regime ? As an autoimmune disease, a vitiligo patient's immune system needs stabilization before beginning any treatment (eg. nbUVB, PUVA).

Some studies have shown that this vitamin/supplement regime can help repigment the skin by itself.
Pairing up B12 and folic acid is another aspect to have in mind. Used solely, folic acid can mask the B12 deficiency, frequent in vitiligo patients.

NOTE: please consult your physician for the vitamin healthy dosage and before taking any supplements.

I'm 35 yr old man who had vitiligo for 12 years. Mine spread rapidly throughout my body, with depigmentation on joints, under eyes, hair, etc. I tried oral and light medications to no real avail. People used to make hurtful comments before, during and after treatment,... and this was tough. Eventually I started to make a natural treatment which has been a blessing to me. You only need to read this review in the link below... you have nothing to lose.
