OPTIZINC -  Optizinc is an established 5-alpha-reductase inhibitor and oral treatment for acne, an androgen mediated disorder.  Zinc deficiency, though rare, will reliably cause some degree of hair loss.

     Zinc is often taken with B-6 to potentiate its 5-alpha-reductase inhibiting properties.  We strongly recommend that Pyridoxal, not Pyridoxine be used for maximum benefit.  Although some use zinc sulphate topically as a treatment, this is generally contraindicated unless the formula also contains some copper peptides, (Dr. Pickart).  Although Zinc sulphate by itself or perhaps with Azelaic may inhibit 5-alpha-reductase, without copper peptides it could leave the hair follicles significantly more vulnerable to inflammation.

     Directions:  1-2 capsules daily.
