Hello guys,

Is there any study about it? Is it good, is it bad? Makes no difference?

Yes but that's not the point here. Is to know if it's good or bad fo hair.

I found this article about it:

Probably better for long term cancer growth and maybe it helps with hair too. As long as one understands the risk then it's a personal choice I guess.

Stay away from doctors who perform mega sessions, have posts deleted, attack posters, sue patients & forum owners, use power drills or robots. I recommend fue with hand punches in the .70-.85 range. I consulted with dozens of clinics over the years and there was a recurring theme regarding FUE among some employees of those other clinics. I was told Bisanga was the man my research told me the same and my experience validated my own research.

Thanks.

Well, i was not talking about taking huge amounts of it. Just enough to increase levels a little and see if i'll notice any difference in hair quality

btw, I came across some info that might be useful for you.

There are two FDA approved companies for IGF-I (Vicrin & increlex), the price per 45 mg is about 8k $.

However, there is "IGF-I" produced in china for a cheaper price, but you dont know whats in it unless you take it to a lab.

Yes.

Anyway, if i take something to increase IGF-1, it will be orally. I'm talking about MK-677, which i already have but i didn't start taking yet.

Did you know Topikk that there is a hair formula coming out with IGF-1 in it?

There could be more advances in treatments if the government would get out of the way!!

Years ago people were taking Raspberry ketone's which was to increase IGF-1 but no more talk about it so guess it had little or no effect.

Just for the record I am seriously addicted to spicy food, I literally put chilli on everything I eat so I must have high levels of IGF-1...yet I still got hair loss.

It is called Min Max Pro. It has just come out. You can find it at International Antiaging Systems website. Br reading your previous posts I thought you may be interested. You might want to check it out.
