This thread is to explore if Hyaluronic Acid (HA) counteracts Minox. I've never seen any studies that explored using them together.

I've been using Minox for close to 20 years. It's the only thing that's helped grow hair for me.

I started taking HA to improve my skin several months ago and I have seen good results for my skin. However, during that same time, my hair has shed quite badly, almost as if I stopped taking minox even though I never miss a day. My hairline and frontal density has taken a noticeable hit.

In theory, HA should be good for both hair and skin, but I'm wondering if it's not good for a long term Minox user and if it suppresses any of the same enzymes that Minox seeks to stimulate.

Any thoughts?

For an unrelated example, there was an obscure study by the University of British Columbia that found taking Aspirin may suppress the effects of Minox because Aspirin is a COX-1 inhibitor. I don't have a direct link to the study but it's referenced here:

Holy eff. The last paragraph is one of the most important pieces of information posted here in my many years as a member. What if it also applies to other popular NSAIDs like Aleve? Or to natural anti-inflammatories such as turmeric? If that's true, many of the natural treatments probably hurt more than help.
