New here, had a question about Tin.
A friend of mine told me that Tin is one of the underlying reasons men have male pattern baldness. He said that scientists have found that taking Tin supplements will make you grow hair.

I did a search on the forums but found nothing so I wanted to throw this out there for everyone and see if anyone has heard anything.

Thank you so much.

I heard something about this a while back. I'm not sure if it was a marketing ploy or not, but it was one of the 'advantages' to taking colloidal minerals. They are about the most disgusting things you can ingest and they come in a liquid form. I tried them for a while but did not see any significant changes. I think I may have given up on them too soon as the taste was so bad. You couldn't even hide it by dilluting one serving with over 16oz or juice or anything else for that matter. But anyway, you can buy them at GNC for about 40-50 bucks for about a two month supply, I think. It's been a while. I found a page that has a product called 'Ionic Minerals'. The stuff I heard about was Colloidal Minerals. Anyway, here is a link to a site. I did a search on Google for 'hair loss tin colloidal minerals' and found it about half way down. It's a storefont but I am sure if you dug a little deeper you might find some info. http://www.naturesalternatives.com/minerals/tin.html
Good luck. If you find anything good, keep us posted.
Thanks.

Found another site with some study info here: http://www.colloidal-minerals.org/TownsendINFOa.htm

About half way down the page.


Male Pattern Baldness Comes from a Tin Deficiency

(14) The critic says that Dr. Wallach’s remarks concerning tin as a cause of baldness "is entirely incorrect." Yet, work with animals was published in Kyoto, Japan in 1990 that indicates tin (Sn) deficiency stimulates the development of male pattern baldness. Rats fed tin at 17.0 ng/gm show poor growth, reduced feeding efficiency, hearing loss, and bilateral (male pattern) hair loss, while rats fed 1.99 ng/gm were physiologically and anatomically normal. Tin, in fact, is a prevention factor for cancer. Also, a November 1991 US federal study shows that the lack of tin in the diet leads to impaired hearing for older men at any given age than in men of earlier generations.

[quote]colloidal minerals[/quote]

One of the worse things you can take. Long term use leads to Lukemia and Alzhemiers. I was looking at this as a way to stop breakouts of MRSA, when a doctor friend got me the medical report on Colloidal Silver and other minerals.

I was shocked and have refused to take the stuff because of it.
