Gave me adult acne which I'd never had but my hair did seem shinier.
It was probably pushing out all the "toxins" in your body and so your skin was having a bad reaction to it.
The same thing happened to me when I started drinking green smoothies daily.
Then again when I started using coconut oil for my face and other organic products to wash and moisturize it.
Your body usually has to adapt to new, healthy changes, and unfortunately the way it often does that is to make your skin break out, red, irritated, etc.
I take a multi vitamin, St Johns Wort, vitamin D, Biotin, and fish oil daily.
My skin was irritated for 3 weeks and my hair was shedding more than usual.
Once my body adjusted to the changes, my hair started growing in thicker and fuller on my head, face, and body, and my skin feels really clean all the time.
Never read anything about it helping depression, but naturally when your body looks and feels healthier, you're bound to be pretty happy about that.
