    From my experience and readings, this product will not regrow any hair. However, it may thicken your existing hair

    There is a huge thread on The ********** forum, at Au$30 a month I am going to give it a go. It's a 3rd of the price of Fin here and last an extra month, and without any sides.

    I'm not expecting anything, but it should hopefully give me extra energy and improve my cholesterol levels.

    Toco-8 is like super Vitamin E.

    From what we know, Vitamin E is known to reduce the number of androgen receptors in the prostate. If it could do the same to the scalp then that would help your hair.
    Also, since the recent buzz about how PGD2 is causing hair loss, there was some study that found that Vitamin E can actually REDUCE PGD2 levels and that might also help your hair.

    No one. Let me repeat, no one that I know of, in the various forums that I've frequented over the years has ever stated that tocotrienols has done anything more than thicken their existing hair, if that.

    Is it possible to get or make Toco8 in topical form? Anyone think a topical form would do anything?

    I got the impression it affects hormone levels when taken internally. Any opinions or knowledge on this?

    are you crazy... fitness people take it daily because it helps them with performance. I seriously doubt that that tocotrienols affects you in any negative way...

    It has been stated (somewhere, don't know where at this exact moment) that tocotrienols boost testosterone production.

    Fueling Testosterone and Preventing Hair Loss with Tocotrienols

    Eugene, OR (PRWEB) February 15, 2008 -- Hair loss (alopecia) and low testosterone (hypogonadism) have become common problems for middle aged men. The two most popular treatments for hair loss are finasteride (Proscar/Propecia) or the topical drug minoxidil (Rogain). Patient compliance with minoxidil therapy is generally a problem, while finesteride is often associated with undesirable side-effects. By overly suppressing DHT, finasteride can lead to erectile dysfunction, gynecomastia and general impotence.

    Men with low testosterone often deal with the suboptimal lifestyle, or seek the traditional hypogonadal treatment of Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT). However, TRT is often associated with increased hair loss, thus requiring the need for aforementioned prescription hair loss drugs. This creates a negative cycle, and further reliance on prescription medication.

    Recently, the natural ingredient manufacturer Carotech obtained a US patent (7,211,247) for the hair loss prevention, and hair regrowth benefits of a mixed tocotrienol complex. For this patent, a randomized, double blind, placebo-controlled study was performed. The participants supplementing with 100mg of the tocotrienol complex had an average 42 percent increase in hair count after 5 months, with no side-effects reported. The mechanism of action appears to be unrelated to DHT levels. It's been reported that the tocotrienols may protect and replenish the hair follicle by their potent antioxidant ability.

    Research with animals and humans show that tocotrienols can support testosterone production by increasing production of luteinizing hormone (LH) from the brain. LH is the hormone that signals testosterone production from the male testes. Tocotrienols have also been found to increase testicular sensitivity the effects of LH, thus increasing the testosterone response from LH.

    It doesn't matter if it boost T or not, but it is surely great product for shedding and regrowth ( I mean regrowth confirmed by study).
    This and capsaicin+soy izoflavons could be nice combo and maybe could replace fin
