    Spectral.F7 Astressin-B Topical Solution

    Anyone else heard about them?

    THey claim their peptide regrows hair...

    I tried calling them and was connected to one of their sales people.

    pretty much cookie cutter answers. I asked if it wrks and what evidence they have ie photos? the generic response was that because it has not gone through clinical trials and because it has not been released yet they cant give that out, however it does grow hair.

    I asked if it has any side effects? her answer was because it is a peptide it does not have any side effects. i asked with regard to live damage, puffiness etc... she answered no to both.

    I asked how long it was tested for, and she was not allowed to give that info out.

    because it is not out yet i can understand them not giving certain info out, however it seems bit fishy to me.


    Thoughts?

    Re: Spectral.F7 Astressin-B Topical Solution

    i will buy this and give it a try - could not find any online shops stocking it..maybe its not out yet ?
    My Regimen:

    Only RU 58841 60 mg in 2/3 Ethanol and 1/3 PG, daily

    Currently NW1.5, diffuse thinning top/front/temples
    Age 42. MBP started at age 27.

    Started FIN in 1998 ->thickening of hair and best initial results
    After 6 years on FIN switched to DUT >good results but with side effects
    After 4 on DUT added topical Flutamide, and Fluridil. More sides from Flutamide.
    Fluridil is too weak.

    Then added RU, dropped DUT. >good results, no more sides

    Been using RU only, for 3 years with zero hair loss.

    I just ordered some for Aiken Skin Care. I am going to give a try since I know some of my hair loss is stress induced. I like the fact it is alcohol free and no minoxidil in it.

    I'm having a hard time keeping my clothes on. Astressin and Prohairin B4 in a cheap-enough topical? Why not, I say. I'll put the lil' money out there and see how it do.

    One day, something will grow some hair... simple as that, hopefully. If I could even get a favorable silhouette for a buzzed head, I'd be eternally stoked.
    You're being ignorant... stop being ignorant.

    Re: Spectral.F7 Astressin-B Topical Solution

    There are side effects whether they will tell you or not. Astressin-b is cortisol blocker which acts as sort of on/off switch for different functions in the body. I have been using PS which is another CRF blocker and have been experiencing side effects. The 2 major side effects are hypersomnia and hyperkinetic gallbladder. This makes sense if you think about it because low cortisol levels activate bile production while high cortisol levels help you wake up. Also all current trials of astressin-b are being conducted by injection because the majority of cortisol is produced in the pituitary gland. As of right now it is not know how or if the topical solution will work. Astressin-b is a large molecule, so large that they had to do a nano lipid encapsulation on it. This form of transdermal carrier is effective at reaching the subdermal layers of the skin but has not been proven effective at reaching the blood stream.

    But I am curious to see if it works.

    Re: Spectral.F7 Astressin-B Topical Solution

    This is complete snake oil guys! Don't drink the kool aid! Take a quick look at some of Astressin B's properties:



    Structure Weight: 3,944.67
    Molecule: ASTRESSIN-B
    Polymer: 1 Type: protein Length: 34
    Chains: A


    Have you guys ever heard of the 500 dalton rule? Any chemical that weighs over 500 dalton will not pass through the epidermis, this chemical ways a whopping, 3,944 Dalton there is simply no way this would be effective topically at all, additionally, the only results that were documented in mice were acheived through injections, no topical effect was shown to be beneficial at all by the actual researchers, spectral is full of ****, they are simply trying to jump on the band wagon because of the hype around astressin B. And another thing: Astressin B is very, very, expensive to synthesize, I have seen quotes in the ten's of thousands for mere Millagrams of Astressin-B, there is no way in hell they put a meaningful amount into this product, if anything the effects they claim they witnessed must be from the GHK peptides or other ingredients in the F7 solution, but not from the Astressin B. Caveat Emptor!
