hyaluronic acid

Post  jksl on Tue Aug 18, 2009 1:41 am

Has anyone tried this supplement or used it topically? Does it really help thicken the scalp skin?

Side question: Has anyone else noticed their scalp feeling more boney as hairloss progresses?

I take it as a supplement everyday. Hair loss wise, there are better alternatives. It reminds me of taking hair vitamins or Bio-Sil, etc..

The real benefits are in possible life extension and retaining youthful skin. I believe in it and will always focus on it for these two reasons.

Here's some good info on this thread

good info from the thread I linked to =

"bind to iron and copper ... inhibit viral replication, help to retain HA levels."

"glucosamine only yields mild benefits for arthritis sufferers who usually have to take it in high doses (1,500 mg) for prolonged periods of time to experience any results. Just 150-300 mg of oral HA will work better and faster at restoring joint health.

Chondroitin sulfate raises the production of HA in the body."

To answer your question though magnesium increases hyaluronic acid. I use topical magnesium chloride on my scalp so it should help in that regard.

I also make sure I have enough zinc. White spots on your nails may = zinc deficiency

Also, bone broth is the best thing you take take to increase hyaluronic acid, IME. It's also free. I also take Neocell http://www.iherb.com/Neocell-Labs-ImmuCell-Collagen-Type-2-120-Capsules/8368?at=0

I also use this brand and CausticSymmetry has commented that he also uses this one as well http://www.iherb.com/Now-Foods-Hyaluronic-Acid-Double-Strength-100-mg-60-Vcaps/8227?at=0

I really like Hyaluronic acid, but I can say that internally it doesn't do anything for hair. I take two double-strength capsules per day for my skin. It helps keep the wrinkles away. Ecklonia cava helps preserve Hylauronic acid too, so it's a nice combo.

In the past their have been advertisements for high molecular weight HA topically, which is supposed to inhibit DHT. I'm not sure how well this works but it's not a cheap treatment.

I like jdp710's idea of topical magnesium instead.

Speaking of topical magnesium...
Will epsom salts (Magnesium sulfate) used topically yield any benefit? Mixed in a non sls shampoo maybe? Any ideas?

i've heard that epsom salts will dry out your hair. Milk of Magnesia (magnesium hydroxide), i hear (from browsing around the net), is soothing to the scalp and not drying to the hair.

Hey abhi,

Epsom salts should work but the problem with it is that it has a high PH. This is important as this could lead to skin issues, fungal infections, etc. as it throws off your skins natural acidic nature.

The occasional usage you're probably fine. Personally, I don't want to risk it for fear of decreasing the beneficial bacteria and increasing the unwanted bacteria on our scalp.


Here's a quote

"Magnesium chloride is an inexpensive alternative method to relinquish stress, inflammation and pain at the cellular level. It is also the mineral of choice for rejuvenation and cell energy production.

Epson salts on the other hand, are rapidly excreted through the kidneys and therefore difficult to assimilate. It is also more toxic and less absorbable and retainable in the body. Effects do not last long which means you need to add more to a bath to get similar results. It also works mainly as a laxative. Its effect, form and toxicity demands it be used in special applications where the sulfur is needed.

We do not recommend Epsom salts in the tub to increase magnesium levels since they are very alkaline and can adversly change the PH balance of the skin."
