  • 1Department of Medical Psychology and Psychotherapy, Erasmus University Rotterdam, The Netherlands.


In a 3-mo. randomized double-blind placebo-controlled study, the psychosocial effects of the food supplement IMEDEEN on health-specific quality of life were examined. Participants were 45 Caucasian women with a normal skin condition in relation to their age. The variables measured were social anxiety and social skills, self-esteem, satisfaction with several parts of the body, state and trait anxiety, and psychological and social problems related to the skin. No significant effect of IMEDEEN was found on any of these psychosocial variables. Suggestions for further research are given.
