Nice. Any other evidence regarding arginine being beneficial? Or was it just the zinc?

I tried a concoction back in 2005 that had arginine, msm, minoxidil and dmso. It was potent $$it, and worked insanely well to regrow hair. It regrew someone's hair completely from slick bald. I used it for six months, but stopped as it was messing me up badly. Anxiety, heart issues, vision etc. Others were complaining of heart problems and vision problems also. I cannot emphasize enough how dangerous it is. Point being however it has arginine.

Arginine adds oxygen in your blood or nitric acid or something. Anyhow taken orally it certain enhances your energy levels and for me it increased my libido massively.

I'm also pretty sure that people use it as a supplement for weight lifting.

I wouldn't add it to zix, but its an interesting supplement.

Hi Guys, just to continue my gushing review about adding minoxidil to my regime. So using zix 1x at night, and minoxidil 1x in the morning.

I cannot emphasize how much my hair has thickened up - wayyyy beyond expectations. I feel like I gained 20-25% density. A year ago and the time prior to that, when my hair was greasy I was super self conscious, especially at the crown, about how my hair looked thin and showed some balding areas.

Now there is no evidence of that at all. My hair is thick, dark, and looks like it did over a decade ago, granted with a bit more recession at the temples. I do however think my temples have improved however. I can part my hair in ways and was not able to for several years due to my temples. If my temples are lowering theyve been doing so gradually so it's hard for me to notice. I see sporatic thick hairs where my old hairline used to be, it's not to say it'll regrow, but it shows whatever Im doing has strengthened the hairs I do have.

Would love to read that.

Anyway, just added some L arginine to my zix today.

Zix impairs the growth of fungus. So does Ketoconazole and possibly even Finasteride. Minoxidil seems to work through a different mechanism which is unknown. But it's speculated that Minoxidil could either be increasing follicle size, extending follicle growth phase or increasing blood flow. So if fungus is the deal here, Minoxidil just circumvents the problem while Ketoconazole and Finasteride are directly attacking it but not hard enough to wipe it out.

Oral L Arginine is supposed to raise T, at least it can.. But topically may be something else.. Pigeon, let us know amigo!

Hi everyone, I am new here that's why I would like to ask you several questions, unfortunatelly this thread is huge to read all comments.
1. Does zix have any sides or it depends on person?
2. Does zix work on general thinning type hair loss?

Thanks in advance.

Hi guys once again, I read quite a lot of pages of this thread, sorry if I asked dumb questions previously, I think I will start using zix, on previous page I read discussions about prolactin, about 3 weeks ago I did blood test for cortisol and prolactin, the exact time of blood test was 11:20 AM, cortisol level was 398 when normal range is 101-535, prolactin level was 17.52 when normal range is 4.04-15.2, I have visited two endocrinologist about prolactin, one of them said that it was Hyperprolactinemia, another one said that prolactin test requires special preparation since this hormone is so sensitive and it may increased so easily and the time when I did the test could not show real prolactin level.

Short info about my hairloss, unfortunately in my country there is no good dermatologist, all of them treat hair loss in men as typical male pattern baldness, I doubt that I may have DUPA since my hair is thinning on top including donor area, my sides are more or less in better condition but I have a lot of thin hairs there as well, hairline has not been changed drastically during last 3-4 year when I first noticed hairloss but density decreased.

I want give a advice from a mistake I made with my first zix batch

I noticed after the first week my zix lose the efficacy the yellow líquid started turn to transparent and white and my scalp start to inflammed and itch again

So I made a new one batch 2 days ago and store it in the fridge and this new batch looks more solid and "live" than the previously one

I really recommend to keep the zix cool in the fridge is very IMPORTANT!

Quick questions about zinc part of the concoction. If you take a look at label warning of zinc sulfate heptahydrate, there are two things that may be concerning:
1) zinc sulfate heptahydrate is toxic for water organisms, even in low concentrations (below 1mg/l I think) - should we be worried that the residue after the morning shower may somehow pollute the water? If you use 3x220mg for 30 applications, that would translate into 22mg per day. I am not sure how much rests on your skin after half a day. Or is it nonsense worry?
2) zinc sulfate heptahydrate is strong eye irritant - sometimes I sweat a lot over the course of night - wouldn't some residue get into my eyes? May it cause some harm?

I am really considering adding it to my current regiment, just these 2 things make me hesitant.

Any reply highly appreciated. Thanks!
