Im mad u didnt tell me u started a challenge!
Bt0wnzH0nnie Thank you I will not be sleeping on the Biotin because I have seen how well it works
OK ladies I like to research stuff, so let me tell you some
interesting information I found in regards to why Nioxin apparently worked so
well for so many. Apparently, this Proprietary Blend was the secret
sauce that made this pill work its magic. Here is a breakdown of a few of them.
Wild Yam Root
This one is just for you ladies! Wild Yam Root promotes hair
growth in women...and women only. The root produces Progesterone in your body, which
not only balances the production of hormones, but also treats several
menopausal symptoms, including hair loss. It makes a great natural hair
restoration remedy and fortunately, it is available in many forms.
Works just as well as Propecia, and without any side effects.
Saw palmetto is also popular as an herbal remedy for a type of hair loss and
baldness called androgenic alopecia, or male- and female-pattern baldness. This
type of hair loss is typically the greatest at the top of the head or around
the temples. Many naturopathic physicians have found that Saw Palmetto greatly
helps women grow their thinning head hair back, while also reducing unwanted
facial and body hair growth.
Is said to prevent hereditary hair loss, called androgenetic
alopecia, which accounts for 95 percent of all hair loss. Proponents of
stinging nettle claim it is safe and effective in reducing hair loss caused by
androgenetic alopecia, or the conversion of testosterone into follicle-harming
According to Christian Nordqvist, editor of Medical News
Today if you take 320 mg of saw palmetto or 60 mg of pygeum capsules, along
with the stinging nettles, it can stop testosterone from being converted to DHT
(dihydrotestosterone). DHT blocks your hair follicles from absorbing protein, causing
them to die. Ironically, these are
the same ingredients in Nioxins proprietary blend.
Medline Plus notes that pygeum bark had many traditional uses, including
as a cure for impotence, malaria and hair loss. What it has in common with saw palmetto and nettle root is, Pygeum is
believed to inhibit the enzyme 5-alpha reductase which converts testosterone to
follicle-damaging DHT. Despite a lack of clinical evidence of any positive
impact on hair loss, Pygeum can be found in a number of natural hair loss
remedies. In one clinical study, the effects of Pygeum africanum on BPH
were examined in conjunction with nettle root extract (another DHT blocking
agent) and it was concluded that combining these two herbs increased their effectiveness.
"An eight month study
performed at the School of Pharmaceutical Sciences at the University of Science
Malaysia showed daily supplements of a patented tocotrienol (vitamin E)
complex may increase hair growth in people with male pattern baldness by 42
Here is information regarding the study conducted;

"An 8-month study was performed at the School of Pharmaceutical Sciences,
University of Science Malaysia with 28 volunteers aged 18 to 59 years with mild
to moderately severe hair loss.
Volunteers supplemented with Tocomin SupraBio showed statistically significant
higher hair counts postsupplementation (p<0.01). An average of 41.8%
increase in the number of hair was observed after 8 months whereby
• 8 volunteers (40.0%) showed >50%
• 1 volunteer (5.0%) showed 25-50%
• 9 volunteers (45.0%) showed
10-25% hair growth
• 1 volunteer (5.0%) showed <10%
PHYTOSTEROL COMPLEX or Beta Sitosrerol
Exactly how beta sitosterol helps
prevent hair loss is not very clear. Studies seem to indicate that it works by
stopping the enzyme 5 alpha reductase dead in its tracks. This enzyme converts
testosterone into another hormone called DHT, and if you did not know, DHT is
bad news for hair. Therefore, if beta sitosterol can stamp out the action of 5
alpha reductase then a major cause of male pattern hair loss can be fended off.
As for side effects, the odd beta
sitosterol user has reported a decrease in libido, if this happens to me I will
cease using the product – hair is good, but not THAT good. Generally, people
have reported an increase in libido. In addition, for the first couple of weeks
you may experience an oily itchy scalp, apparently this is a “pre-cursor to
So, if you
saw my earlier post, you can see I looked up most of the ingredients,
and they seem to work very well together to create phenomenally fast
hair growth. I see no reason why we as individuals cant recreate that
magic without paying the high cost. It does kinda suck its not all in
one pill but maybe someone out there can find one? In the meantime, if I
have to take 20 pills a day so be it. Happy Hair growing!!!
