    Hey everyone, I am new here, and registered just to share something with you.

    First some background , I am 53 years old and feel that my hair has been thinning since my college days. I have been using Rogaine probably since it first came out. Not religiously during all years but its basically helped me keep a decent head of hair for my age with a crown bald spot in back.

    For years and years I always look for new things to help but nothing seemed to be that magic bullet. There are always things "in the works" and of course propecia which I chose not to take due to potential side effects.

    Then something weird happened. After a diagnosis of some heart issues, I was recommended a supplement called COQ10 for heart health. I have been on it for about 4-5 months now. Oddly my hair seemed to turn a bit darker. My hair is dark brown but had a bit of grey in it. I thought that a bit weird. Then I noticed my bald spot seemingly shrinking from the borders in (like a closing circle).

    Hair goes in cycles so I was not all that excited until this continued and I started poking around online and found that there is some evidence of this effect out there.

    It is definitely noticeable as people from my daughter to my hair dresser to friends have mentioned it.

    I would consider doing some research on it to see if it is possibility to help you with hair loss.

    Here is one comment I found

    ""My parents 80 and 82, are both growing new dark hair after taking 400 mg of co q10 for 2 months. My mom's hair was getting thin and was completely white and she now has dark hair growing all over her head and my dad had been bald since 30 on the top of his head and he now has dark hair all over his bald spot. I have been taking 100 mg for 2 months and noticed my hair had gotten much longer quickly and my thin eyebrows are filling in. I am 51.I now take 400 mg. My elderly friend in her 70's has been taking 100 mg since summer and said her hair dresser noticed her hair was much thicker"."

    Also google CoQ10 hair growth for more info and articles.

    I know some new treatments are getting close in the coming years but they just never seem to materialize. I hope the end of this problem is near for us.

    I read forums like this one all the time and never have much to report on but figured this was worth mentioning.

    I just ordered a bottle of 100mg soft gels. Might as well try it out for a few months and report back. Thanks for the heads up!

    Thanks for your reply, I wanted to offer some more info I found along the way. I always try to back up things I post with info but could not find it handily when I first posted..

    Some research below..

    (as a new member it wont let me post the link but google this phrase below and look for the Wiley link for the research report
    Coenzyme Q10 has anti-aging effects on human hair




    Also for you and others... I am trying to get some pictures and other info from people I have been talking to but there might be something to this in terms of mitochondria. It is odd that with all the money spent on hair loss regimens usually things get found by just being a side effect of something else going on (which is how Rogaine was found to be somewhat useful).

    Good luck Bob!

    Anecdotal evidence only it seems. Although you could impart some science in to your theory by getting your CoQ10 levels checked before you start on an increased dose. I did that a few months ago. It was 1.26 ug/mL. Reference range is 0.37-2.20. Performance characteristics may vary depending on which lab analysis you use.
