Vitamin B12 Linked to More Acne

Update Date: Jun 25, 2015 03:07 AM EDT

Vitamin B12 increases the risk of acne, according to new research. 

Researchers found that some people who normally have flawless skin are more likely to be negatively influenced by vitamin B12. The latest findings revealed that vitamin B12 can significantly increase the risk of inflammation and pimples. 

Researchers Huiying Li, an assistant professor of molecular and medical pharmacology at the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA, and Dr. Noah Craft, a dermatologist at LA BioMed at Harbor-UCLA Medical Center, believe that the latest findings could help identify new drug targets to treat acne. 

The findings are published June 24 in the journal Science Translational Medicine.
