Frequently Asked Questions

How well does Vilantae work? What percentage of people does it work for?

In Dr. Lit-Hung Leung’s clinical study on d-Calcium Pantothenate, the results were over 90%. However, this was in a controlled group where patients followed instructions carefully and were under close supervision of a physician. We believe 80% to 85% is more realistic based off our anecdotal research, which is about the same percentage as Accutane’s (isotretinion) effectiveness. The most common reason for failure is not taking enough, not giving it enough time, and not sticking to a consistent amount on a daily basis.

How long will Vilantae take to work? Will I be able to see results by the end of my first bottle?

  • As with Accutane (isotretinion), Vilantae is not something that works over night. By the end of the first bottle, most people will start to see signs by their reduction in skin oil. That is not always the case however, especially for those who decide not to take the full 20 capsules per day. The body has to be jarred into producing additional coenzyme A. It generally takes up to 3 months to see Vilantae’s full effects.
  • The first sign that Vilantae is starting to work, is a noticeable reduction in skin oil. This typically takes about 3-4 weeks to happen. 1-2 weeks after a noticeable reduction in skin oil is when a significant reduction in acne starts to occur. However, it works in a bell curve fashion, some people respond sooner and some take longer. It typically takes three months to experience the full effects of Vilantae.
  • If you have not seen results after three months, your body may require more time, however you are statistically less likely to improve if you continue.
  • If you have not seen results after five months, you should stop taking Vilantae. Your body is not responding to the therapy.

How much Vilantae do I need to take?

Instructions for Vilantae

  • For the first five days take 5 capsules, twice a day, for a total of ten capsules per day.
  • After the first five days, take 5 capsules 4 times a day, for a total of twenty capsules per day (after three months, this can be reduced to a maintenance dosage of between 4-15 capsules).
  • Continue taking 20 capsules a day for the first three months or until your acne is clear (three months is generally the standard time it takes).
  • Remember to take all of your capsules as consistently as possible. Write it down or keep track if you have to. Remember, clear skin is just around the corner.
  • Once your acne has cleared up, reduce to a maintenance dosage ranging from 4 to 15 capsules per day. This will vary depending on the extent of your acne and how well your body responds to Vilantae. You may consider gradually reducing from 20 capsules per day to 15, then to 10, and eventually to 4. If you experience flare ups you went below your optimal maintenance dosage. Increase to the amount taken prior to your last reduction.
  • Keep in mind that Vilantae’s effects are delayed roughly 2 weeks after consumption. However, it may take longer if you are just starting on Vilantae.

Although it takes time to see the full benefits of Vilantae, it also takes time for it
to fade on a lower amount. Sometimes people don’t realize this until two or
three weeks after they’ve gone below their optimal daily amounts.

• If you have severe acne you may consider increasing to 6 capsules 4 times a day for a total of 24 capsules per day.

• Do not take over 24 capsules per day without first consulting a physician.

Doesn’t 20 capsules a day seem like a lot to be taking?

This is the most common question that we get. The capsules are very easy to swallow. Keep in mind it’s only temporary, it’s 100% safe, and it’s extremely effective. The purpose of the 20 capsules per day is to force the body into producing more coenzyme A. It has to be initially jarred. After greater coenzyme A production has started, the number of capsules taken per day can be reduced to a maintenance dose of between 4-15 capsules per day.

Why don’t you offer 750mg or 1000mg capsules?

We used to think offering larger capsules would be better, because it would allow for less capsules to be swallowed per day (ours currently have 510mgs of Vilantae). We soon realized that having capsules in that size was not the way to go, because they were just too difficult to swallow. Believe us when we say you do not want capsules in that size.

The problem with larger capsules (especially when a person is taking more than one at a time) is their tendency to get stuck in a person’s esophagus. They don’t get stuck in the typical sense of a person choking. However, it has the potential to be uncomfortable, painful, and even dangerous. This is especially true if you’re eating when a capsule’s stuck in your esophagus. This never happens with our capsules.

What are the side effects of taking Vilantae?

  • The main side effect from Vilantae is a loosening of the stool (half way between normal and diarrhea). You may find yourself using the restroom more often than usual. After 1-2 months, the body typically adjusts to the high Vilantae intake levels and things go back to normal. However, if you experience any diarrhea reduce the number of capsules taken per day or stop taking Vilantae and consult a physician.
  • Mild stomach irritation happens occasionally. Take Vilantae in lower amounts and at greater frequencies if this happens. Try to take it with food. If it persists reduce the amount of Vilantae taken per day. Again, the body tends to adjust to this and the stomach irritation fades over time.
  • Possible headaches during the initial 1-2 weeks of starting Vilantae. It is a rare side effect. It is more common among women. If you experience headaches stop taking Vilantae and consult a physician.
  • If you have any adverse effects from Vilantae, please stop taking it immediately and consult a physician.
  • Do not take Vilantae if you are pregnant or breast feeding.

Is Vilantae completely safe?

Vilantae (d-Calcium panthotenate) is a water-soluble vitamin and is safe to take in high quantities. It is impossible to overdose. Besides the minor side effects, no adverse reactions have ever been reported. A number of studies have confirmed its safety. We advise against taking it if you are pregnant or breastfeeding however.

What if I just have mild acne? Would 5-10 capsules a day be enough?

For some people with light acne 5-10 capsules a day is more than adequate. However, this isn’t always the case. The Vilantae threshold must be taken into account.

Vilantae’s effects tend to be enhanced the most above the 10 capsule per day range. This is because the body must be forced into producing additional coenzyme A in order to be effective. The initial threshold must be reached if you will. This is why we recommend 20 capsules per day until your skin is clear. If you have light acne it will clear even more quickly, so you can subsequently reduce your daily amounts.

Is it possible to take more than 20 capsules per day for very severe acne?

• If you have severe acne you may consider increasing to 6 capsules 4 times a day for a total of 24 capsules per day.

• Do not take over 24 capsules per day without first consulting a physician.

Can I take Accutane (isotretinion) and Vilantae at the same time?

Vilantae will not interfere with Accutane (isotretinion), but it is not recommended to take them at the same time. They both prevent acne in similar ways and taking both at the same time isn’t necessary.Back to Top

Are there any physical characteristics that would increase a person’s chance for success with Vilantae?

To a small extent, yes. It depends on a person’s acne to oily skin ratio. For example, some people may have extremely oily skin, yet only have light to moderate acne. These people have a slight advantage with Evolution-X Vilantae. Other people may have less oil on their skin, yet still have an equal amount of acne. This could be from differences in skin texture, the immune system, and other things. However, acne is still not possible without excessive skin oil. Evolution-X Vilantae is largely effective for everyone, and this ratio is just a small thing to take into consideration.Back to Top

I just started taking Vilantae and my acne has increased. Is this normal?

During the first week of starting Vilantae, some people notice an increase in their acne. This is possibly a result of the Vilantae pushing pre-existing pimples to the surface of the skin. It is nothing to be alarmed about. Keep in mind, the positive effects of Vilantae generally take 2-3 weeks, sometimes longer before they occur.Back to Top

How do I know if Evolution-X Vilantae is right for me?

Evolution-X Vilantae is something that falls in between traditional applied skin products (soaps, cleansers, toners, topical treatments) and Accutane (isotretinion). There are many people whose acne is not helped by applied products, yet it simply isn’t bad enough to warrant the step up to Accutane (isotretinion).

If applied skin products have not worked for you, Evolution-X Vilantae is something you should seriously consider. If you have not tried the more powerful topical treatments (Retin-A Micro, Benzamycin) then those might be a good option as well.

Something else to consider is:

• Evolution-X Vilantae will significantly reduce the amount of time you have to spend manually cleansing your skin, which is a definite plus. It also reduces the amount of money you have to spend on applied products.

In the end it’s up to you to make the judgment call. We’ve tried to make this website as informative as possible. Please do not hesitate in talking to your physician if you have any doubts about Evolution-X Vilantae or your other options.
