maybe i'll to share some of my experiences with EPO.
for what i know is, if you start eating EPO you would NEED to continue eating no matter what.
Dun worry when i say this cos EPO helps to make skin radiant and regulate PMS but only when you have continue eating it.
actually after you eat, no point stop taking it as this need long and regular dosage to see the best effects. i've been taking EPO for about 6months. I have pimples but that's because i use the wrong pdts and sometimes i'm too lazy to remove makeup and that's why.
so the EPO is not those "miracle pill" which will clear your skin problem overnight. but this requires consistent dosage to see best effects.
after i see my face like that, i've been continuosly eating it and i'm more cautious when trying new pdts. and i find that it reduce my bloatedness and reduce water retention during my menses.
about gaining weight...i'm not that sure. but given around the same period ie. for the 6 mths ever since i started taking EPO, i've been losing weight leh. I lost about 5kg BUT not overnight. it's gradual one.
i'm eating Kordel's 1000mg. and i'm taking one pill after my meal in the Afternoon and one after my dinner. Kordel has one that is with Vitamin E but what my mom said is that Vitamin E and EPO consume together can be rather heaty. cos i belong to those rather easy heaty person, so i chose the 1000mg only.
i bought from watson's. watch out for their sales item cos i got mine 3 in a pack at $27 only! 90 capsules in a bottle. so 3 bottles can last like 4.5mths, with each mth cost around $6!
For me, i usually eat Vit C with EPO cos i think Vit C can reduce our blood and skin oxidisation and make our skin radiant also! rem how those skincare labels said they incl Vit C for whitening and radiance effect? Can give a try lor.
hehe hope above helps.
