  1. 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?


  2. Was just about to post this as I got the same thing.

  3. Bump, want to start this today how much do I take?

    A packed and leveled ¼ 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?

    Thats not good... Ill have a word with the packing dept.

  7. Its not a big deal, everyone has a 1/4tsp or ten lying around.

  8. Glad this thread is here, didnt get a scoop either... After popping all the bubble wrap couldnt find one, lol.

  9. 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,

  10. i may try this out on my dad as his hair is thinning ,but i think i am going to cap it anyway because there is no way i can get him to drink this..stubborn as hell

  11. Is it not tasty? I thought it was quite pleasant like a fruity drink

  12. nah my dad is a pain.lol he is very stubborn very old school, set in his ways..i figure i can dump the whole container into 50 000 caps.that will cut it done to a 25 day supply but the convenience for me trying to get hm to take it will be priceless..lol

  16. 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.

  18. Thank you. Can you point me in the right direction for mechanism of action? curious as to how this stuff "works" before I spend hard earned money

    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.

    Sounds good to me :=) thx for the info..how long does this stay at the "freshest"..closed I mean..? Is it wise to order a 6 months supply at once, or would it be better to order less..like.. every 2 months ?

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

  30. 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?

  31. 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.

  37. Bumping PP, I'm using Toco-8 post hair restoration.
    My ongoing feedback can be found here:
    CED59 Gets a Hair Restoration Procedure!

    Great Service from PP, from Eugene to The Gulf of Mexico in 2 days.

  38. PP,

    Do you think we will see any before and after pictures of someone who has only used toco-8 in the time to come?

    Perhaps. I know a couple guys are doing long-term logs/reviews on this.

    -Pp

  40. 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.
