Vitamin B5 Hairloss- Cured (Pictures)

1,523 posts in this topic

so basically another solution that seemed so promising is not really a solution....i mean i would sacrifice my hair to get rid of acne, but there are other problems that might happen if I take 5 mg of B5 with l cysteine for a very long time right?

No known side effects except possible stomach cramps. The b5 study was done around 2000 so no one knows sides effects past a decade. I think hair>acne unless you are already almost bald. B5 is a cure acne cure for bald men.

How long will it take the hairloss to stop? I'm completely off B5 as of yesterday and I'm taking 2.5g of l-cytosine.

Could potentially never stop

How long will it take the hairloss to stop? I'm completely off B5 as of yesterday and I'm taking 2.5g of l-cytosine.

Could potentially never stop

Since my shedding isn't that bad (yet) would it be necessary to stop my B5? I noticed I started shedding so I cut my B5 down to 2g (from 5g) and within a few days I started getting some awful awful zits so as of last night I started taking my B5 again in full dosage. Does this mean that I need to take 10g of l-Cystine? Seems a tad overboard for my situation but if it's needed it's needed and ill do it.

If you take 10g of L-cysteine you will probably die. Do not take more then 3

>To any young guy experiencing hair loss, i'm telling you. Stop masturbating so much. Once a week, tops. Once every 2 weeks is even better.

I've done so many studies on myself. I know for a fact, there is a link. Most guys these days, because of porn and everything else, masturbate constantly and it's just not good. I know some dudes who do it 5-6 times a day and they have crazy receding hairlines. Too much masturbation = loss of testosterone = increase of DHT, or something like that. Regardless, if you masturbate a lot, stop. Within a week of not masturbating, you'll see a noticeable difference in your hair thickness, density and overall hair health.

Also- pot smoking. If you smoke the ganj, stop and you'll see your hair change and any thinning areas become filled.

If you are loosing hair, smoke the green and masturbate multiple times a day, definitely look into those 2 things being a cause for your hair loss.

Also, use an all organic shampoo/conditioner. One free of as many chemicals as possible and full of as many natural ingredients as possible (essential oils, extracts, etc).

Last but not least, avoid artificial sweeteners at ALL COSTS. One of the main side effect- is hair loss. Artificial sweeteners are in everything- from gum to yogurt to of course, diet soda. Find natural alternatives to everything that's free of chemicals.

FDA purposely approves of ingredients knowing they will cause hair loss. That way you have to go to the Drs and get medications like propecia rogaine, etc., which of course bring on more illness & the need for more medications with more side effects which means money money money out of your pocket and in theirs.

Actually propecia cured multiple people of b5 hairloss. They took it usually for 3 months and then stopped. Also I haven't had an orgasm in almost a year even though I have sex. it helped my acne, but didn't cure it.

You haven't had an orgasm in a year because of propecia or because you're trying to stop acne?
Neither. Before orgasm I am full of energy, throwing my wife on the bed etc. after orgasm all I want to do is sleep. So I decided to stop and keep the energy. In addition it allows us not to use artificial birth control.

@philly

"I remember talking to someone on this board several months back who was experiencing hairloss due to B5. Supposedly, his hair was restored by taking Propecia. Someone else on this board has made the claim that Avodart stopped the hairloss. "

http://absoluteacneinfo.yuku.com/topic/445/B5-and-Hairloss-Biotin-Update#.UYPFGny9KK0

YouTube propecia hair, you will see a video of a guy regrowth his hair.

They also discuss nitric oxide on the above thread. Here is a phase 2 NO product, results due in August. Maybe taking NO supplements for working out might also help with hair.

http://clinicaltrials.gov/show/NCT01347957

Here is another quote from the absolute acne thread.

"Ah yes, and I've been taking 3g of arginine for 6 weeks for hair thinning and general hair health and it's definitely made a difference. My hair is now thicker and healthier like it was before B5. As I said last time, people with hair thinning problems should consider taking arginine. It seems to be working great for me but I'm not sure how it will work for others as I only had mild hair thinning..."

Arginine has to do with NO.

Has anyone tried taking simple B complex and biotin? This is obviously an imbalance we've created and we know what it imbalances, so, perhaps we should rebalance these things out by taking a B-Complex?

Again, I apologize for the double post but I simply think that we have created an imbalance in our bodies. It's common knowledge that taking or megadosing on one particular B vitamin creates an imbalance in your body in the form of a deficit. One of the symptoms of a B Vitamin deficiency is hair loss. Specifically speaking, biotin is the the vitamin responsible for this. Other symptoms also include dry mucus pads (ex cement like mucus/super dry mucus in your nose), a symptom that I also express. I'd love to hear the groups thoughts/consensus on my hypothesis

People have tried both for several months and it didn't cure their hair loss. I believe pjjordan did for 8 months and it didn't help.

There are posts on multiple forums of others who tried biotin, B-complex, and multivitamins with no help to their hair loss.

I agree Phillyeagles that we should get tested before we continue to put things in our bodies we don't know will work.

Guys, I found this.

http://www.baar.com/radiactestimonials.htm

The chemotherapy which I received raises havoc on my system - after one use of treatment from the Radiac (with [Vibradex™] Gold solution) many of these problems disappeared. I was losing my hair, now its growing back at a fast rate. I had nausea and cramping in my stomach after every chemo treatment. I no longer have any of these problems. It also helped my blood count which after every chemo treatment I need a blood transfusion. I no longer need any now. The list could go on. I had a 30% chance - I feel the Radiac gave me a 100% chance." S.M., NY

I have been using the Radiac for a few months. I use it with [Vibradex™] Gold or [Vibradex™] Silver solutions and sometimes plain. My body feels very relaxed and a feeling of warmth in my hands & feet at times. I've also felt a floating sensation of my body. The surprising thing that I found is that my hair was getting a bit thicker, curlier and less grey. The Radiac certainly works its magic." T.N. Marlton, NJ

I am going to try the radial active with the gold. It is very expensive so I wll let you know how it goes after a few months. I also found these testimonials regarding hair regrowth related to the crude oil and atomidine. All these treatments require at least 6 months of continue use.

We all say were shedding hair, but I didn't know until lately that its only considered hairloss if you're loosing more than 100 hairs a day (which I know I'm not). I've begun to think that the increased loss is natural because its not coming out and clumps and is only some hair in the shower

You lose a lot more hair than you think. Think about it, how much hair do you lose in the shower? You're up about 16 hours a day, there's no way you could possibly count how much hair you're shedding throughout the day...if you're finding hair very frequently everytime your run your hand through your hair, then its a problem in my opinion..

To clarify, no on got tested, but Blue. And Blue, you didn't test your cortisol levels because you said they are fine on cycle, is that correct? I am going to a dermatologist this Thursday, no tests scheduled, but will see what he says. Also for those in touch with the guy who previously ran the b5hairloss website, he never found a cure? Reading his old posts, seems he leaned toward adrenal fatigue

current regime:

atomidine 1 drop, 7 days on, 7 days off

crude oil twice a week with a 30 min massage+crude oil pine rinse, then vaseline

radial active appliance (4 days with gold, 4 days w/o gold, 4 days off)

3 bottle of careprost (generic latisse) in a bottle of nioxin scalp treatment every night

1gm l-cysteine

Considering rogaine foam

Yes mate that's right. Use cortisol blockers on cycle but I wouldn't rule anything out at this stage. Wow your on a lot of things man are you still shedding on all that, a few guys on the steroid forums use nizoral and toco for hairloss check them out.

Correct, he never found it but thought he was close. I think he was leaning towards adrenal fatigue as well. But no one got cortisol saliva test, so we don't know as of yet if the theory holds.

I can refer you to his email if you want to talk to him, he's very informed on this specific problem after years of research, and you seem to be a smart and determined individual as well, so maybe talking it through you guys would be able to figure it out? For me, he told me to get those tests, but I'm nowhere close to my doctor to do that without spending hundreds....

Yes, let me get his email. I am booking an appt with an endocrinologist and I want to know what tests to get. I am doing cortisol, thyroid, blood and b vitamins if that is possible.

Yes Blue, still shedding. I am going to add a keto shampoo, that is what nizoral is. I posted on another thread about CB, it's for both acne and hairloss. Stage 2 trials completed already in Europe.

Hey all,

i found this. I did the iris contraction test and my pupil immediately re dilated, so strong indicator of adrenal fatigue. I went and got the ebook by dr wilson, going to read it tonight. Maybe you guys should do some of these tests and see what your results are.- http://forum.lowcarber.org/showthread.php?t=117152

In Dr. Wilson's book, Adrenal Fatigue , he lists 3 tests you can do at home to help determine if you have Adrenal Fatigue (or Burned Out Adrenals, as Dr. S calls it). This might be helpful for those who can't afford a Cortisol test.

Test #1: Iris Contraction Test
Equipment required: chair, small flashlight, mirror, a watch (with a second hand), and a dark room.

In a darkened room, sit in a chair in front of a mirror. Holding the flashlight at the side of your head, shine it across one eye (not into the eye). Watch what happens in the mirror.

You should see your pupil contract immediately after the light hits the eye. The pupil will normally stay contracted, but if you have adrenal fatigue, the pupil won't be able to hold its contraction and will dilate. This dilation will take place within 2 minutes and last for about 30-45 seconds before it contracts again. Time how long the dilation lasts and record it along with the date. Retest monthly as it serves as an indicator of recovery.

Test #2: Blood Pressure Test
If your blood pressure drops when you stand up from a lying position, this almost always indicates low adrenals. This can be measured with a blood pressure gauge (a sphygmomanometer), which you can buy at a drug store. Make sure to purchase the type that doesn't require a stethoscope to take your blood pressure.

Make sure to do this test when you are well hydrated or it could give you a false positive. Lie down quietly for about 10 minutes, then take your blood pressure (while still lying down). Then stand up and measure your blood pressure immediately upon standing. Normally blood pressure will rise 10-20mmHg from standing up. If your blood pressure drops, you likely have adrenal fatigue. The more severe the drop, the more severe the adrenal fatigue.

Test #3: Sergent's White Line
This is only present in about 40% of people with Adrenal Fatigue, but if the test is positive, it's a "slam dunk" confirmation.

With a ballpoint pen, take the cap end of the pen and lightly stroke the skin on your abdomen, making a mark about 6" long. Within a few seconds, a line should appear. In a normal reaction, the mark is initially white, but reddens within a few seconds. If you have Adrenal Fatigue, the line will stay white for about 2 minutes and will also widen.

Do you have any idea how people treat adrenal fatigue?

Look term supplementation or bovine adrenal extracts

"Their first claim to fame in the United States occurred with the epidemic

flu virus of 1918. Respiratory infections are especially hard on the adrenal

glands and fatigue them rapidly. This effect was shown by Lucke and his

associates at Camp Zachary Taylor in 1919, when he found that adrenal

exhaustion was present in 103 of 126 autopsied cases of mortality from

the flu epidemic. In 3 other cases he even found adrenal hemorrhages

and enlargement of the adrenal glands to twice their size. This means

that in 106 of 126 patients who died from influenza, the adrenals were

actually damaged by the infection. It is not that the adrenals were infected

per se, but that the effort they made to try to restore balance to the body

led them to a degree of exhaustion that was physically detectable upon

autopsy (Lucke, B., et al., Archives of Internal Medicine, August 1919,

XXIIII, pg. 154).

While this flu epidemic was debilitating and even killing thousands around

the world, a few hundred of its victims were given a formula containing

liquid adrenal cortical extracts (extracts from the adrenal cortex) combined

with small amounts of thyroid and gonadal extracts. The formula

was found to be unusually effective in overcoming many of the asthenic

(weak) and depleted states that were so common to those afflicted with

this deadly flu. It also effectively reduced the serious sequeli that usually

followed this particular infection. The benefits of this adrenal cell extract

formula dramatically drew attention to its practical use. The quick and

uneventful recovery experienced by those taking it contrasted to the long

period of recuperation normally seen in this flu epidemic. These results

made many physicians aware of the possibility for recovery from less

severe forms of hypoadrenia as well. It was known even in 1919 that

the early functional endocrine disorders, especially adrenal fatigue, are

infinitely more common and far more likely to respond to therapy than

extreme endocrine diseases such as Addison’s (Harrower, ’39, pg. 17)."

EDIT: Bovine (cow) is no longer used due to mad cow disease, rather porcine (pig) extracts are used. Here is one such product, but honestly I suggest most people drop cable and use that money to get tested. My endo appt is next week, will update then.

The dermatologist wouldn't conduct tests. He just passed it off as MPB but I did request I be prescribed to Avodart. I am now on Avodart and Rogain Foam for 1 week now.

That sucks, it's terrible when people in the medical profession will not listen to the patient. Many think they always know best and won't stray from anything taught in medical school.

My doctor actually ran tests but just blood tests, and everything was fine of course.

I'm actually having what looks like quite decent re-growth at the moment but I don't want to say details until I can be sure. This thread is already filled with too many phantom "cures".
