Just heard about this amino acid recently, and it looks to be beneficial for hair without side-effects. Has anybody used this. Results?

I have used it in the past. Can't say it helped, can't say it harmed. I think any supplement such as L-Cysteine may be somewhat beneficial, but don't get your hopes up for a magical cure with it.

I Use n-Acetyl-Cysteine, Lysine and Arginine (all pill form). Been using it for a couple of years. My hair loss has definitely slowed, thickened up, and grows faster. But, b/c of my kitchen sink regimen, hard to say how much of that is due to those amono acids. But, I am a believer in them for overall health (and some hair benefits).

N-acetyl cystein will boost gluathione levels good anti oxogent and immunity helper. Don't know about hair especially but anything good for health might help hair. However go look at the down and outers who probably live on hair tonic and whatever the nearest dumpster gives up and many of them have plenty of hair on their heads. So I don't know how much nutrition and good health habits do for hairloss good for overall health though. Keep taking the Dut or proscar is the best thing to do!IMHO

Lysine and arginine should be more beneficial for our hair. Especially Tarlanders with fruity Norwood 43's.

Hmmm yeeeeees Fishboy but isnt there an issue about taking lysine and arginine together where they cancel each other out?

Hey zimmy,

If you take a relatively large dose of pyridoxine (b6) it will convert the harmfull aminoacid homocysteine into cysteine. This way you can kill two birds with one stone.

Thats interesting Androgen i didnt know that. One thing thats put me off trying L-cysteine is that I believe you have to take 3 times the ammount of vit C while taking it.

I used it for a while several years ago. I'm not sure what it did for my hair, but the brand I used was bundled with high doses of B1. Sometimes I would take it when I had hangovers and the effect was nothing short of amazing. Much more potent than just taking a B-complex the day after a bender. I've read that regular doses of l-cysteine can in fact reverse the deleterious effects of booze.
