It seems to be helping. I still take it with fish oil, however. I think the pathway from which spirulina gets converted into EPA and DHA needs to be looked at. I dont think I’m converting as much as I should. I found that lowering my fish oil to half did a good job, otherwise I seemed to get a little bit of inflammation still when dropping it altogether.
I feel like I am losing less hair though. When I run my hands through my hair, I only lose 0-2, usually I would lose 2-4. My hair seems thicker too. Still not regrowing on my bald temples though. I try to take the spirulina between meals but it is tough to do. I try to take 5000mg 3x a day. Makes my urine kinda stink, but other than that it’s fine.
I have long since found that by cutting down on processed sugars that my hair improves. I used to be a coca cola addict and ever since I cut back, my hair has improved since before starting the fish oil. I was on the South Beach Diet a few months ago and I’m sure it helped but man is it hard to follow. I did lose 10 lbs on it though. Now, when I have a small coke, 15 minutes later, I can feel my scalp start to itch. I am thinking about
adding in some Benfotiamine (courtesy ImmortalHair) and taking it with a meal or after I have a coke.
I am pretty content with my progress in halting my hairLOSS, but regrowth is still frustrating. I’m leaning more and more towards Dr. Armani.
» How are things going on the hair loss front? Is the spirulina helping?
» I have one more thing to suggest for you. Do not eat or drink anything
» with sugar in it. NOTHING! That means NO sweetened ice tea, sodas, breath
» mints, cookies, cakes, or candy bars. I would even watch high glycemic
» foods such as white rice and potatoes including french fries.
