  1. Jarrow Formulas - Toco-Sorb (Toco-8 Alternative)


    Hey guys,

    I want to tell you about the following product. It is similar to toco-8 but a lot better.

    It utilizes the Tocomin® SupraBio system which is what was used in the original study for hair loss.

    "TocoSorb® tocotrienol-vitamin E complex utilizes SupraBio® enhanced absorption system. Tocotrienols protect cardiovascular function by affecting biosynthesis of cholesterol and reducing oxidation of low density lipoprotein (LDL-Cholesterol).* TocoSorb® also maintains healthy brain functions.*Typically, bioavailability of tocotrienols is low. Patented SupraBio® specialized lipid mixture enhances tocotrienol uptake 2 to 3 times. TocoSorb® is derived from natural full spectrum palm oil"

    It only costs around $13! for 60 softgels. Remember if you do start taking this product to combat hairloss or to try and grow hair, you need to take 2 softgels daily.

    Me personally i bought 6 bottles.

    Also there are a lot of other health benefits when supplementing with a tocotrienol-vitamin E. I feel much healthier and my cardiovascular endurance has increased.

  3. Thanks for the post, I am about to run out of toco-8 and need to find a replacement. I will try out a few bottles of toco sorb and see how it goes.

  4. No problems guys. Please post back here with your results.

    I have also noticed that my hair on my head and on my face grows a lot faster!

  5. UPDATE: Toco-sorb has definitely made my hair thicker and healthier. I highly recommend it to anyone looking to prevent hair loss. It also has great brain and heart benefits.

  6. Thanks for the update.

  7. I am about to run out of my toco-8 supply next month. Thanks for the post!

  8. NP guys, i really feel more people need to know about this product. I swear i am not a rep or anything but it really is an amazing product.

    My hair is awesome. My blood pressure is great (i monitor this myself) and my skin has a nice healthy glow to it. And i thank all of this to toco-sorb. It apparently absorbs better than toco8 and is so much more affordable.

    I have given a bottle to my sister who has a lot of red marks and slight acne on her cheeks so i will see what it does for her and let you guys know.

  9. I've been using this for nearly a year now. Can't say I notice anything but its healthy and good value

  10. So does two soft gels equal the same amount used in the study?

    What are you dosing it at?

  12. I was waiting for a reply to the last post lol

  13. Yes i do take 2 soft gels daily as per my OP

  14. Would you expect this to have much of an effect on a receding hairline, or is that a separate matter than overall thinning hair?

    Not to much effect on a receding hairline.

    Its good for thickening your hair slightly and hair health and making your hair grow faster.

  17. stuff is great for overall heart health and many other benefits. Dont expect any hair growth or it to stop your hair loss. Its cheap enough to find to make it a staple though as an overall health supp.

    I have been using Jarrow Formulas familE at 2 s gels a day.I use it because familE has all 8 forms of vitamin E.I do realize that Toco-Sorb is mostly a tocotrienol formula with some d-alpha tocopherol in it. What is the difference between the 2 formulas?

    one specializes in tocotrienols (toco-sorb) and therefore has a higher mg blend (57mg vs 38mg). while the other is more complete and incorporates mixed tocopherols into the formula as well (familE). The tocotrienols is what the hair "study" was done with, so you would go the higher amount you can get, in this case toco-sorb.

    Sucks that jarrow made toco-sorb a prop blend, must be for a reason, probably pixie dusting all those good tocotrienols while giving us a surplus of the less important ones.

  20. Was just reading about this.. think i'll give it a whirl.. any other feedback on this?

    Np bud.

  24. Thanks for this info... Just took a look another Jarrow product called Life Extension Gamma E. Looks more complete than toco-sorb and looks more comparable to toco-8 if dosed at 2 caps with the same if not higher servings of each tocotrienol & tocopherol at the 2 cap dosage. So for those interested, Just going to pass this info I found along so that it may help someone.

    This is what I have been using for quite some time and it is a great product with a great profile.
