Jarrow Formulas - Toco-Sorb (Hair loss)
- 07-07-2013, 01:17 AM
Kind of bringing this thread back to life... anyone showing any results? I also have changed my shampoo and conditioner to one for hair growth.. Not Nioxin since it's got chemicals in it.. went with the Jason brand with Biotin as it's sulfate free and all natural..
From what I can tell I've got less hair on my pillow in the morning and less hair dropping down into the drain when showering..

I was on Toco-8 for 7 months and then switched to the Jarrow formula. I cannot say anything either way. I did hope for it to help with my thinning hair in the back but I cannot say either way. Hair grows much quicker though.

I got a bottle of that lying around. I also scored some liposomal vit. E (100% absorption) intended for horses. ive also tried water soluable E, though that may be off the market now. the tocosorb is way better absorbed than most vitamin E supplements; it has a serving size of 70% daily recommended allowance I think; it looks like the small but effective dose is designed to get around digestive issues some people have with larger amounts of other forms that end up never getting absorbed. I read this doctpr's practitioner manual that had people taking up to 1600 iu a day.
interesting the connection to hair loss. ive always believed that vitamin E ability to thin blood resulted in better circulation to the brain; the more blood that can reach it's destination, the more that destination is nourished since the blood carries the nutrition.
ive also heard choline, methionine (or any sulfur-bearing amino) and silica helps with strengthening the hair. in my opinion, most forms of silica don't work; swanson makes a high potency bamboo extract, though a lot of people claim humans lack the enzme to digest the silica from bamboo. orgone has an insanely expensive silica form they developed, though I couldn't say if it works. I use something called oceanic silica, but the best effects from a silica supplement ive noticed are from a jarrow product called bio-sil; it tastes really nasty and some of my friends I pushed it onto told me it upset their digestion

I can offer some general thoughts:
I use several Jarrow Brands products. I am VERY impressed with them. The price/performance is really good, and they are available at Vitacost, Swanson and most all other retailers art a fairly decent discount.
I started the Toco product recently. I also use other Vit E-related compounds from other suppliers. My use for the Toco product is for LDL management.
I also use - and very highly recommend - Jarrow B-Right. It is a methyl B complex. I used 3 each day, along with the TMG I take.
I also use Jarrow Ginger extract, Jarrow Ashwaganda, Jarrow Cordyceps, Jarrow d-Limonene, and Jarrow Selenium (in the form of Methylselenocysteine).
