Research Shows Quality Carbs Reduce Acne

Posted Dec 18 2008 7:35pm

Note from Connie: Goodness grief. There is so much sugar news! Thank goodness I have two wonderful part-time blog researchers/writers. This entry comes from Karen James. Incidentally, as Karen explains further, I wrote about this study in my book SUGAR SHOCK!, but the study didn't come out until this month.

Foods low on the glycemic index such as beans and whole grains, which slowly release glucose into the blood stream after consumption and improve insulin sensitivity, may also help clear up acne, according to a newly published study, which Reuters Health discussed.

Robyn N. Smith, Ph.D., a researcher at the RMIT University in Melbourne, Australia, was the lead author of thestudy in which researchers assessed the impact of low-glycemic-load carbohydrates on 43 male acne patients between the ages of 15 and 25.
