Misconception: Peanuts Cause Acne
Contrary to the belief that acne are caused by eating too much peanuts,
studies, such as the one conducted by the American Academy of Dermatology,
have found no connection from such. The Journal of American Medical
Association concurred in a published study that "diet plays
no role in acne treatment in most patients…even large amounts
of certain foods have not clinically exacerbated acne." However,
what is recommended for acne preventive care is maintaining a healthy
diet and having a vitamin regimen. It has been recommended that
a person should add more fruits, vegetables, seeds, and nuts to
the diet. Nuts contain Vitamins B3, E, and Zinc. These nutrients
promote a healthy body and a healthy skin. Vitamin B3 reduces cholesterol
and improves circulation, Vitamin E is a powerful antioxidant, which
protects the cells against free radicals, and Zinc boosts the immune
system. These studies show that peanuts are good sources of nutrients
that protect the skin from acne.
