its L Cysteine thats the important amino acid (Hair Loss Supplements)

This is what you guys need to take a look at...including you Hangin...
Topical l-carnitine l-tartrate for regrowth from a doctor's site.

Could this be the cure for hair loss?
Big Pharma accidentally discovered that a patented drug used for blood
pressure, minoxidil, helped regrow hair. Boy, did they make billions! But
you don't need the drug. I am excited to tell you about a possible
treatment for hair loss. If I could keep it a secret and market it, I
probably would make a bazillion dollars in no time, just like Big Pharma.
But I'd rather tell you about it and get your feedback. This is a dandy.

Researchers recently cultured human hair follicle cells. These are the
skin cells responsible for making your hair. They incubated the cells with
very low levels of L-carnitine tartrate for nine days. At the end of that
time, the follicles treated with l-carnitine showed significant growth of
hair.

But that's not all. The treatment also slowed apoptosis, or preprogrammed
cell death. It improved division of cells essential to making hair. It
improved local cell growth proteins in the outer root sheath.

The authors concluded their fascinating study urging more research of this
safe nutraceutical approach to male pattern baldness and other forms of
hair loss. I agree. But there's no reason to wait. It's harmless. And this
isn't the only research I've seen on carnitine and hair loss. Other studies
found that topical carnitine provides more ATP to the hair follicle cells.
That makes sense since carnitine is intimately related to mitochondrial
energy production from fatty acids.

Carnitine is readily available in your local health food store. Once you
buy it, here's all you have to do: Take a capsule, dissolve it in a small
amount of carrier solution, and apply it to your scalp. Since DMSO is an
outstanding solvent and means to carry substances into the skin, a weak 20%
solution of DMSO could be the ticket. DMSO 20% is unlikely to irritate your
skin. And there is no drug risk from the carnitine. You can find DMSO on
the Internet.

If you try this solution, please let me know how it works. I'd love to
beat Big Pharma at their own game.

Yours for better health and medical freedom,

Robert Jay Rowen, MD

There are a bunch of aminos that seem to beneficial.

Carnitine is lower on my list.

Taurine is alot higher as it will help with the immune response.
