Taurine is an amino acid that when used orally at doses greater than 500 mg. acts as anti-fibrotic agent (inhibits the inflammatoin mediated hardening or ridgification of the hair follicle matrix), thus addressing the primary mechanism of the gradual follicle miniturization seen in MPB, L’Oreal recently obtained a patent for oral hair growth compound that simply combined Taurine with Grapeseed Extract, Mega Green Tea Extract, OptiZinc, and Beta Sitosterol. In data submited by L’Oreal in their patent application, topical Taurine was found to be ineffective for hair growth.
Directions: 1 capsule (1000 mg.) daily
Rationale: Prevents and treats fibrosis in the hair follicles, which has been implicated as the primary causative factor in long standing hair loss. Combined with Phytosterols, Green Tea Extract and Grape Seed Extract, it is Patented by L’Oreal as an oral treatment for hair loss in Europe for both genders.
