Curcumin and hair shedding

Post  RobHealthMan on Sat Dec 05, 2009 11:05 am

hi CS and others,

I heard/read somewhere about how taking Curcumin induces heavy hair shedding? Can you shed some light on this? (no pun intended!)

I currently ordered CS regimen curcumin.

http://www.iherb.com/Jarrow-Formulas-Curcumin-95-500-mg-120-Capsules/13089?at=0

I'm hesitant in taking it until i get more information.

Thank you very much everyone!! Smile

It was LEF's Super Bio curcumin that caused some posters to shed.

RobHealthMan - Not really sure why, maybe it was too much of a good thing. One poster posted a link to a forum of cancer patients who also felt that the stronger curcumin did not work as well for them.

CS,

I have been using the Jarrow Curcumin for a while and just started the NOW 200mg (trans-res)/tablet. Is the synergism one that they need to actually be taken at the same time, or is the same day fine? Resveratrol is expensive, and NOW has the most bang for the buck on iherb, but is 200mg of trans-res a day enough? I also see that the Jarrow Curcumin says to take once or twice a day I believe. Would you suggest taking it twice based on the shedding people reported from the LE brand?

No problem, Rob. I hope the resveratrol/curcumin help. LEF products tend to be the most expensive. And their dose dependent philosophy about virtually everything is not always accurate, I am finding.

JHarsh, if I may,

You will want to take curcumin and resveratrol at about the same time, because of the synergistic effect they exhibit. Neither curcumin nor resveratrol are as effective by themselves.

Again, the hair loss study used these amounts, far less than most of us are taking now, and participants still got results:

1. 600 mg. of vitamin C

2. 600 mg. of wheat germ (vitamin E source)

3. 80 mg. of curcumin

4. 40 mg. of resveratrol

5. 50 mg. of capsaicin

If you think about it, we are taking 6 or 7 times the amount of curcumin; 2 or 3 times the amount of resveratrol. Some here might argue that this combination is not dose dependent, that these herbs should be used daily, but in moderation.

By the way, Jarrow used to recommend 1-5 capsules of curcumin a day. Now, just 1 or 2.

The Natural,

Thanks for clarifying. Interesting about Jarrow; I wonder if they are a step ahead of LEF on the Curcumin dosage. I wasn't aware that there was a specific hair study in regard to curcumin/resveratrol....Do you happen to have a link to it?

Sure, here it is: http://www.wipo.int/pctdb/en/wo.jsp?wo=2006087759&IA=IT2006000093&DISPLAY=DESC

Also, IH posted some good stuff about the synergism: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC1810449/

Curcumin is an iron chelator.

http://bloodjournal.hematologylibrary.org/cgi/content/abstract/113/2/462

Those who have hair shedding with curcumin could have diffuse hair loss due to anemia. But for most people on this forum, we probably have too high iron, and the iron chelation would be beneficial.

Just my guess as to why it causes shedding (assuming it is diffuse shedding and not male pattern, if it is male pattern then nevermind.).

Good point esepio.
I´m still thinking LEfs curcumin is by far the best... maybe there´s a bit of paranoia with it???
