If your worried switch to a lower dosage or whole plant (SP ) and get manufacturers advice.
As a rule, I feel that whole plant extracts are best.

I actually agree (maybe for the first time) with Pete. I am finding that whole plant extracts are more effective, and “natural,” if you will. Hence, I have begun using turmeric and Japanese knotweed extracts instead of just their isolated parts, curcumin and resveratrol.

I have used beta sitosterol in the past. And I am not a fan. “DHT blockers” like beta sitosterol, pygeum, pumpkin seed extract, saw palmetto, and nettles are outdated natural hair loss treatments. They can cause side effects similar to those experienced by Propecia users, and their effectiveness, for the majority of users, is short-term.

thats not true and you know it
most of these natural dht blockers do not lower libido, how do you know they have “similar effects”

It is true.

Jacob, if he were here, would tell you the same. And ImmortalHair dropped beta sitosterol from his top three/six, because poster after poster returned to the board, complaining of lowered libido, brain fog, and other “effects,” similar to those experienced by Propecia users.

they must have been taking huge amounts of Beta sis
I have always recommended lower amounts i believe I was taking a 113mg pill but that was three pills to get that so divide by three so I was taking about 38mg
or 10 percent of what a lot of these guys take

I never experienced any loss in libido
however these guys taking 375mg yup I can believe that might happen, Beta sis is way too powerful

too many of these guys think the more you take of a supplement the more it works

thats way way too much
I take Source naturals 115 mg tablet and its 3 tablets to get that amount so my amount is about 38mg per day, it works great at that dosage
\
beta sis is 3000 times more powerful than saw palmetto, didnt you know that?
go google it

True. A lot of times this will happen after the effectiveness of these types of DHT blockers begins to wear off, which inevitably occurs. It doesn’t do any good though, and can be potentially quite dangerous.

You’re asking for Dr. Hangin’s advice instead of a real doctor.
That really takes the cake.:no:

If you want to stay on the Beta Sis route, one ofthebest balanced formulas I have come across is Biospray :

http://www.mybeautysecrets.co.uk/Product.aspx?ID=646

As you can see it contains 2mg of Beta Sis but achieves its potency through liposomal delivery:

Ingredients
Vitamin E (Alpha Tocopherol) 1.5 IU
Niacin 5.9 mg
Zinc Gluconate 895mcg
Beta-Sitaterol 2 mg

I would try and keep your supplemental regime effective but very simple to slow hairloss.

You can also encourage Regrowth via topicals.

Thanks
Pete :slight_smile:

Roex® Beta-Sitosterol is a scientifically engineered formula, which contains 200 mg of Beta-Sitosterol, plus 200 mg of two other plant phytosterols (campesterol and stigmasterol) per serving. Both men and women can benefit from the positive effects phytosterols have in reducing saturated fat absorption and lower cholesterol and reducing your risk of heart disease. In addition, males will receive enhanced prostate support with daily use of Roex Beta Sitosterol, Advanced Men’s Formula®, and FP-63®.*

Products containing at least 400 mg per serving of phytosterols, when consumed twice a day with meals for a total intake of 800 mg per day, as part of a diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol, may reduce the risk of coronary heart disease.
