I'm intrigued to have just read something about nutrition and vitiligo that I don't remember ever having seen before (just as I was beginning to think I'd read and memorised everything!)
It's in an article by Dr Sandy Milgraum, Associate Professor of Dermatology, Robert Wood Johnson Medical School, East Brunswick, New Jersey (Article Source: http://EzineArticles.com).
He says: "...The body especially needs two proteins, Phenylalanine and Glutamine to manufacture melanin, the pigment in your skin..." I already knew about phenylanaline (and am taking this in Boost - well actually it's l-tyrosine, which is what phenylanaline converts into) but I haven't been taking a glutamine supplement.
I still have about 2% of the way to go in the entire re-pigmentation process, so I'll see if adding l-glutamine to the mix will speed it along. I'll keep you posted!
