As we reported in a prior update ,Carotech, a U.S. based biotech company with production facilities in Malaysia, recently patented a tocotrienol complex as an oral hair loss treatment that simultaneously enhances testosterone production. This tocotrienol complex has dropped in cost and has been modified for greater bio-availaibity 

      The adult scalp loses about 100 hairs every day. Starting at the age of 40, hair follicles shrink, causing hair to grow back thinner, or worse, not at all. This devastating loss is experienced by half the population. While the prevention and treatment of this condition is complex, using a supplement with tocotrienols can be pivotal in addressing the various physiological mechanisms that lead to thinning hair.

      For this patent, Carotech conducted a randomized, double blind, placebo-controlled study. The participants supplementing with 100mg of the tocotrienol complex had an average 42 percent increase in hair count after 5 months, with no side-effects reported. Nearly all subjects showed significant improvements in hair thickness and density. The mechanism of action appears to be unrelated to a reduction in DHT levels. It was determined that the tocotrienols likely protect and replenish the hair follicle by their potent antioxidant ability.

      Super-Absorbable Tocotrienols combats the underlying causes of hair loss, supporting otherwise healthy hair follicles that genetic disposition, advancing age, high concentrations of DHT (the male hormone dihydrotestosterone), atherosclerosis, and inflammation may cause to weaken, degrade and shrink. Super-Absorbable Tocotrienols, a natural, orally administered, even more bio-available, enhanced tocotrienol complex, can be taken to support youthful hair thickness and growth. 

      A new patented delivery system ensures optimal absorption and efficiently delivers the benefits of a unique proprietary complex of naturally extracted phytonutrients (squalene, phytosterols and trace amounts of mixed carotene) together with tocotrienols to support youthful hair growth, hair health and hair density.
