    Default Does inositol help with acne?

    I have been taking Soy Lecathin and then inositol to help with the symptoms of PCOS for 7 months. Since taking them I have been having regular periods of 5 and 6 weeks for the first time in my life (they used to be once a year - if that). I am 40 years old and so don't have the problem of acne anymore and wondered if people have seen an improvement in their skin with inositol or soy lecathin? I am trying to get information about it to help my 2 daughters when they reach puberty.
    I am amazed with the benefits of soy lecathin and inositol since starting to take them. I am fairly sure that my facial hair is starting to clear up and the fact that I have regular periods seems to me to suggest that my hormones are starting to balance out at last.
    I am interested to see what effects other people have seen.

    I started taking d-chiro-inositol in April (that helped acne and skin in general TONS) then just last month I added myo-inositol and it seemed to help out even more. A couple years ago I had tried 1,00mg of myo-i and didn't see any change, but this time I'm taking 2,000mg (in addition to d-chiro-i) so maybe the first time I just wasn't taking enough.
