Arnica (Hair Multiplication & Stem Cells Treatment)

posted by AleMB81, 08.08.2013, 14:39

I started thinking about Arnica when people started to use voltaren for hair loss.

Basically I've Always used Arnica when I had problems with muscles or bruises

I had the chance to make a small research and I noticed that arnica is compared to NSAID in terms of effectivness. Since Voltaren belongs to NSAID and it's being used for hair loss, I tried to find a connection between these 2 elements. Please remember that voltaren is demonstrated to inibhit the prostaglandin biosynthesis due to its main main element, the diclofenac.

Unfortunatelly I did not find a direct connection between Arnica and products made with diclofenac but I found a study regarding Arnica and Ibuprofen (which is still a NSAID and supposed to be less "powerfull" than diclofenac).
The study states that arnica and ibuprofen have the same power in treating ostheoartritis:

Then I discovered that an element underlying the famous COX2 > PGD2 pathway: NF-kappaB and I "discovered" that this element is stimulated by our old friend DHT:

In another article I found that Arnica is able to inibhit the NF-kappaB in a different way from the other NSAID:

These data suggest a molecular mechanism for the anti-inflammatory effect of sesquiterpene lactones, which differs from that of other nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), indomethacin and acetyl salicylic acid.

So I started thinking that Arnica could be used for hairloss...

I found some people stating hair loss reduction connected with arnica (I know that we don't have to believe everything on internet) but I started thinking that arnica could Worth a try...even because you don't need any prescription and it's cheap (at least here in Europe)

What do you think?
