Nicholas is right about the patent. For some detailed information about the clinical study with active Links, including one to the Patent Application as well as to useful products, click on my "View Users Profile" icon (next to the light bulb) in the upper right corner of this Post. Then in the window that pops up go to the blue tool bar at the top and click on the (View Posts) Link. and then click on Page 2. Scroll down to the thread posted by Maxter entitled, "Another possible accidental discovery in regards to MPB", or to save some time just click on:
Then scroll down to my Post and note in particular the first sentence, where I state that curcumin reportedly and SURPRISINGLY HAS REGROWN HAIR ON BALD AREAS of the scalp in clinical studies, BUT ONLY WHEN TAKEN BEFORE MEALS WITH RESVERATROL.
The first Link I provide in my reply to Maxter takes you to the MPB website and gives an excellent easy to read explanation of the clinical studies. I suggest that you explore their website and among other things note their suggested protocol. They suggest a separate curcumin supplement and a separate resveratrol supplement, both of which are Life Extension Foundation products, which have an excellent reputation.
If you are not a LEF member qualifying for their discount, you can probably get the same products at either the same discounted price, or close to it, at iherb.com. If not, other brands at substantial discounts are available at swansonvitamins.com, vitacost.com, vitaminshoppecom, etc., as well as iherb.com which has already been mentioned by another poster. However, quality and absorption or the absorbability of the nutritional products are key, so staying with one or more of the better known brands, even if a little more expensive, would be best for optimum results.
As I stated in my Post, what's impressive in relation to the regrowth of hair about the clinical studies which are the basis of the patent application (to which Nicholas is referring in his reply to your Post), is that THE STUDIES WERE DESIGNED TO TEST FOR ANTI-CANCER AND ANTI-AGING EFFECTS, and the resulting hair growth in bald areas of the scalp as well as the restoration of original hair color in some cases initially were unexpected side effects. That fact tends to give credibility to such claims of hair regrowth and possible restoration of hair color.
The second Link I provide in my reply to Maxter takes you to the Abstract of the Patent Application, and the third Link takes you to an interesting discussion/thread about the use of curcumin and resveratrol for hair regrowth as well as the use of other supplements for that purpose.
