It has been long theorized that acne is a disease of Western civilization as a result of diet. Foods that cause insulin spikes (high-glycemic foods)also raise androgen (male hormone..also found in women) levels which can lead to acne breakouts. Eating a diet rich in low-glycemic foods such as fruits, veggies, nuts, and fish, help stabilize our insulin levels and thus our androgen levels. Also, ingesting Omega-3 fats, such as fish oil, for instance, has been shown to be a powerful anti-inflammatory agent in our body. Since a big part of acne is inflammation, it makes theoretical sense that eating an anti-inflammatory diet would help.
Since many “jungle civilizations” rely on such a diet, it would support the above theory that acne is diet related.
