Sulforaphane...

Post  Icanbeatthis on Tue Mar 09, 2010 10:16 am

Hey,

Just started taking Sulforaphane and I had no idea how powerful this stuff was... I've been taking it for a week and all itching is gone, hair feels much nicer.

What can I realisticaly expect going forward with this? In terms of feel it's like nothing else out there, big difference after a couple of days only, is there a reason this isn't in your top 6 IH? Can this thing halt further hair loss? Any hopes of regrowth?

The diabetes research with sulforaphane is pretty impressive, one british woman totaly stabilized in blood sugar in 6 months using broccoli sprout powder. This stuff seems like it could be the answer to alot of stuff!

Icanbeatthis - Thanks for your feedback, I'm really surprised I haven't seen other posts like this--Honestly, I'm just waiting for the feedback because I've been taking this stuff steadily since posting a few (in my view), groundbreaking studies on it.

I have speculated that Sulforaphane can switch off a prominent hair loss gene, so I'm totally with you on this. However, I wonder how many have experienced any difference. Maybe we need a poll?

Some time ago, we had some positive feedback on it, but only with regard to asthma and H. Pylori.

Here's the results for some of the Sulforaphane info on this forum:

Btw, I use the Swanson's branded BroccoPhane, 400mg. Don't know if there are better brands out there but this stuff definitely does something!

This is pretty exciting, I read that Sulforaphane can modulate Estrogen so this could be another way in which it might help us. We need more people to jump on this and see what happens, I plan on sticking with this for a LONG time.

Icanbeatthis - That stuff from Swanson's is in the mcg (micrograms).

The only product really worth while IMO is either Jarrow's activated selenium (has 9 mg of SGS) or Broccomax with 30 mg.

hmm, very interesting!

Does it have an effect on testosterone too? I am trying to better regulate my T and E levels...

Overall though I'll be following this thread, as it does seem like an exciting supplement!

Do you think your shedding has reduced (if you were shedding before I mean)?

Hmmm, I just ordered some BroccoMax from Iherb, still this is somewhat encouraging.

Getting results from such a small quantity makes me excited to see how I will feel on the more potent doses!

my hairdresser is a persian lady and last time i was in i asked her if my hair looked any worse since i have now stopped taking propecia for 6 months and she said it looked the same. Then she started telling me how one of her other clients was going bald, very thin up top, clear bald spot in the back, but the last time he was in he had filled in quiet a bit. So she asked what he was doing and i guess hes a doctor and has found a mixture of rosemary oil, sage oil, brocolli oil and i think the last one was almond oil. She said he sold it to a company in Canada (where im from) and it should be out soon. Sounds interesting, is there such thing as brocolli oil? Her english isnt too great, maybe she was trying to say brocolli powder.

I don't want to take TOO many supplements - should I ditch my MSM for this?

Hoppipolla - Would ditch the MSM for sure, this is much better.

I just noticed Broccomax 's price is up $2 since last month on iherb.Actually they keep upping the price for their most popular products steadily almost every month/couple months.Great policy at such dire times!

edony - OMG, just saw that. At least Jarrow's activated selenium is still cheap.

CS, it looks like Jarrow's Activated Selenium is discontinued...do you have an alternate source? A quick google shows most places are out of stock.

BroccoMax is much more expensive, but it provides 3 times as much SGS, would it be OK to take it every 4th day? This makes the price a bit more palatable since a bottle would last 7 months or so.

Also, I know broccoli spouts are high in Sulforaphane...how much do you need to eat to get what is required? I found this product BroccoSprouts but it apparently only has 9mcg per 1/2 cup (1oz) serving.

I also found this Broccoli Sprout Capsules w/ Sulforaphane capsule but it looks like only .21% of 250mg is Sulforaphane, by my math that's .525 gram/capsule. This is more expensive than BroccoMax but does Sulforaphane vs SGS make a difference?

This is really bad news.. Jarrow's Selenext is one of my favorite supplements. I hope this is just a temporary shortage.. and not an end to this supplement.
