Losing Skin Pigment?
This problem, called vitiligo, has no cure, but here are some things that may work for you. Several reports indicate there are individual nutrients that seem to be beneficial: Para-aminobenzoic acid (PABA), a water-soluble B-vitamin found in bran, brewer's yeast, eggs, milk, rice, wheat germ, and whole wheat, taken along with a B-complex supplement, has produced improvements in people with vitiligo. Several studies have shown that hydrochloric acid secretion is often low in the stomachs of individuals with vitiligo. Supplementation with hydrochloric acid, a strong acid released by the stomach lining and important in the digestion process and B-complex may be beneficial as well.
