    To be honest, I don't think that's what happened.

    Minoxidil causes a shedding, as hair starts growing, stops resting.

    It's a one time thing. Just need to be patient.

    That said, I think Minoxidil is TEMPORARY without Finasteride, or dutasteride to back
    it up.

    By it here! You will save yourself lots money. Also, it comes from Florida? (I believe, correct
    me if I'm wrong). It's Rogaine foam.

    "Minerals and antioxidants" typically don't result in any kind of measurable regrowth, especially on their own. That includes biotin, vitamin c and zinc, the most commonly discussed ones, with the very notable exception of iron for women who might lack enough of it.

    Sounds like chaga tea could be a weak 5-AR inhibitor like saw palmetto, pumpkin seeds and possibly other natural products like green tea and bee venom (see the "New Research, Studies, and Technologies"). If that's the case, you'd be better off micro-dosing finasteride if you intend to go down the anti-androgen road.

    Not that I'm peddling finasteride, mind you, I believe I've had symptoms similar to 5-AR inhibition from just eating a handful of pumpkin seeds for about 8 months (watery sperm, unwarranted anxiety, loss of libido, insomnia) and I'm not planning on touching anything even remotely associated with that stuff. I'm glad for those who don't get side-effects or who can endure them though.

    @brandnew88 I am trying this daily. The first couple of weeks I noticed way more energy, reduced anxiety and more frequent bathroom trips. I have been shedding allot but was before I started. So far haven't noticed any signs of slowing the shed, nor any regrowth. I think it is doing something positive to my health but just not what we hoped for in terms of hair. I also read that not all Chaga is created equal, where did you get yours from? Mine is a powder so you only have to simmer for 45-60 min instead of the chunks that you have to boil for 3-4 hours.

    I agree it does make me feel better all over. My hair though is falling out significantly more. The brand is four sigmatic. Yours?

    I got mine at Chaga Dot CA, I don't think it would be the cause of your hair shedding more though. It's cleaning out bacteria, fungus and cleansing the liver. My guess is you would probably be shedding just as much without it. Have you heard of or looked into Zix? Does your scalp itch or tingle when you are having a big fall?

    It could be just a regular shed. I have heard of zix, but never tried it. My scalp doesnt itch or tingle. I rarely get an itchy scalp.

    Props for not advertising any product, but I am curious to know which brand of Chaga you took as there are A LOT popping up now and not all are good I believe.
    Thank you so kindly.

    According to a study Chaga mushrooms can induce G1 cell cycle arrest....here are the studies not sure what it means but does something with the cell cycle. May be important. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2681140/ https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4388940/ I don't understand this scientific stuff maybe someone else willing to look into this.

    G1 is typically the longest phase of the cell cycle. This can be explained by the fact that G1 follows cell division in mitosis; G1represents the first chance for new cells have to grow.

    also

    When DNA damage occurs, or when the cell detects any defects which necessitate it to delay or halt thecell cycle in G1, arrest occurs through several mechanisms.

    also

    Modulating the balance of follicular proliferation and apoptosis may be a key strategy for the control for hair growth and regression and may lead to more effective therapies of many hair diseases, which can be viewed as cycling disorders

    I think it means..... Chaga inhibits cell proliferation or induction of cell death and induces G0/G1 phase arrest and subsequent apoptotic process accompanying caspase-3 activation.

    So maybe Chaga allows bad cells to die and is good somehow??? Im not that scientific so idk

    I've known about chaga for a while, it's supposed to be a potent medicinal mushroom used by people in Northern climates, never heard of it being mentioned in relation to hairloss though. Interestingly one of the things it does is it regulates the immune system, so if it's overactive it calms it down and if it's underactive it stimulates it.

    I stopped drinking it. It's great for the immune system also for cleaning out free radicals and dead cells but does not do much in terms of hair loss or itch. That said I may start drinking it again for general health reason, cold and flu season is approaching.
