what's the different ?
Hmmmm, well how to explain, if a hormone attaches to a receptor and activates it, then it causes effects. like sticking a key in the door lock and opening a door.
So, like with estrogen can cause Boobs, but not Every girl has big boobs even if they have high estrogen levels, it's not just the Estrogen levels but the estrogen levels And the amount of receptors in the boobs, or how well their own receptors are working in that area.
So with Vitamin D, its the activation of the Vitamin D Receptors that according to studies, is involved with starting the anagen phase of hair growth.
The Active form of Vitamin D can activate the Vitamin D Receptor, but it's not the only thing that does that. The vitamin D, you get from diet has to be converted by your body to the active type in order to upregulate the VDR. There are Vitamin D Receptors throughout the body, but of course, the ones in the scalp skin specifically is what we'd want to focus on for hair.
u must have a minimum of vit D to upregulate the VDR and what's the VDR ?
VDR is vitamin D receptor activity. Several things upregulate it and several other things downregulate it.
Bald guys gets sun on there head every day they dont get hair
How do i get Sulphorpahe on My scalp or how should we use it
i have a compound pharmacy that is going to compound vitamin D for me, but how much vitamin D should I tell them, 1000iu for example?
Yeah pretty obviously vitamin D from sun does not reverse male pattern baldness. A million sunburned bald heads out there. I will stick to the androgen/DHT theory for now until they figure out where and how this vitamin D piece fits into the puzzle
That is the problem with 99 percent of these new discoveries, and why we keep going back to androgens. Castrated men dont go bald. All this new stuff we dont know how strongly it affects male pattern baldness or where the puzzle piece fits. You might waste a lot of time going down a path that doesnt mean much. We know how important androgens are.
ok i can confirm topical cod liver oil does make a difference. i have been applying it once or twice a week to left side of my head for 3 months and just recently i have noticed on this side lots of small hair inside the long ones on the frontal hair line ! other side only has terminal hairs ! i also do scalp massage and other essential oils but i do them on both sides so the only difference is cod liver oil on that side. i will now do all over scalp and see if i get the same improvement to the other side. other people should try this on half their head to check the effect.
An update- I do not apply cod liver oil consistently, not sure why but it absorbs so much I do not feel well after lol ??
So after seeing this new study.. I think I will pierce some vit D oil tabs and apply those as often as I can.
this is the main immune system regulator, so again I think this should be the base of all treatments and not internal TOPICAL( I tried 5000 IU for 6 months and it had NO effect on my hair.. it did boost my libido though lol)
This recent study reaffirming the link OCT 2017, With alopecia areata, Telugen Effluen and Female pattern baldness.
Surely its also related or a factor in male pattern baldness on top of the androgenetic aspect?
Has anyone tried topical calcipotriol or topical VIT D from broken capsules ? I am thinking this plus dermarolling should be the safe base of ALL hair loss treatments.
This guy used Vit D for hair loss
judging by the photos it did not work?
Do you need vitamin D or D3? about d3 I read on htc2020, it was written there that this is a harmon, he has all the vitamin complexes. also is on sale as liquid, is intended for children, but I probably buy it
IMO it is not a good regrowth but, I don´t know if it is more interesting to prevent alopecia
see the photo in
Ummm, why add vitamin D?
You're already getting some vitamin D (and retinol which is a form of vitamin A) from the cod liver oil .
hi afro i do not use the cod liver oil it smells a bit and makes me feel sick as it penetrates too much ?
so im thinking of switching tp calciotrol as per studies or breaking vit d 3 pills into some vehicle
Topical Vit-D may have a role in Follica's treatment. Lack of results from swallowing Vit-D supplements don't necessarily prove anything. Lack of results from applying Vit-D to non-wounded skin may not prove anything either. We don't know enough about Follica's deal to make educated guesses yet.
