    Toco-8


    I just got my order and the serving size is one scoop, but I did not get any scooper. What does one scoop translate to in terms of teaspoons?

    A packed and leveled Ό teaspoon is the dose. (twice a day for the clinically effective hair loss dose)

    You guys should have gotten spoons… are you sure it wasn’t buried in the powder?

    I got a scoop buried deep. At the top would save on wasted powder or even glue it to the outside of it.

    much love,

    Any effects on endo-DHT levels here? DHT obviously has many benefits in men (when normal limits)

    I dont believe Toco has any effect on DHT levels, but perhaps it makes the hair follicles more resistant to DHT related fallout since it did improve conditions in all individuals.

    Check out the product write up -



    The mechanism of action is likely a protective anti-oxidant effect on the hair follicle.

    Most other tocotrienol supplements on the market (including the one you above) use the same "Tocomax" tocotrienol source, so you get the same tocotrienol/tocopherol ratio.

    I think we have a real competitive price per mg though compared to the competitors. Plus our stuff is by far the freshest mix on the market. The process of soft gelling requires quite a bit of heat which likely degrades a good portion of the heat sensitive tocotrienols. Ours is a powder shipped stait in from the manufacturer on a monthly basis, packed right in our own facility and kept refrigerated during storage.

    The bottles should be fine for at least a year if stored in the fridge.

    Eric, you said the tocotrienols are heat sensitive, does this mean that I would not be able to mix it with a hot beverage like tea?

    You would get more out of your tocotrienols product, if you added sesame lignans to your stack. Sesame lignans inhibit an enzyme that metabolizes tocotrienols/tocopherols, so you extend bioavailability and potency of your tocotrienols.

    Read about this, very good advice!! sesamin oil should be hand in hand with the toco's you take.

    I should have some pictures shortly, almost done one can. I have been using it like this:

    1. Toco-8 recommended dosing
    2. Stieprox shampoo - clears poors / dht scalp
    3. Essential oil massage
    4. and I now just added Saw Palmetto back in the last week as I was out of it for a while - 320mg day.

    I will have before's and after.
