  1. The LIVER makes bile, not the pancreas. I learned that in 6th grade. (and relearned it in 10th, and in bio and A&P in college).
    If you can be wrong about something so well known and documented, it makes me question everything else you have on your site.
    Do more research before you post false information like that.

    1. What I was referring to as it relates to bile, is that the enzymes which are secreted by the exocrine tissue in the pancreas help break down carbohydrates, fats, proteins, and acids in the duodenum. These enzymes travel down the pancreatic duct into the bile duct in an inactive form. When they enter the duodenum, the enzymes are activated. The exocrine tissue also secretes a bicarbonate to neutralize stomach acid in the duodenum. Some reference material refer to these enzymes as a type of bile.

  2. Also, eating less food will not make your body cooler (unless you are starving or something). It will make you hungrier. In a normal weight individual, the body’s metabolism is at the level it needs to be to maintain homeostasis. Homeostasis includes keeping your body within a normal temperature range. The body will maintain its temperature by eating its own fat and tissues if it has to. With rosacea, what you want is to avoid vasodilatation in the face. Stay away from foods that are vasodilators such as hot things like peppers.

  3. My skin went crazy…it felt like it was on fire. Raw and red and such pain!
    I went to the dermatologist and he prescribed “MetroLotion” and all it did was burn my skin even more.( This started when I was about 48 years old—other strange health problems were happening at the same time).
    I started using the Made from Earth Rosehip & Hibiscus Face Serum also – and my skin is under control. The hideous raw red skin flares occaisionally…I use it daily…

  4. Having tried many products similar and most a lot more expensive, I was reluctant with my expectations of anything new.

    I have a lot of redness around my eyes and after about a week and a half of daily use of the Made from Earth Rosehip Hibiscus Serum, I actually could see the redness has lessened. With continued use, about three weeks now, it still seems to be improving. Even though I am 61, I don’t have a big issue with wrinkles. Over all, I am very pleased with the results and the price!
