Cysteine Hair Growth

If you want information on cysteine hair growth, you are in the right place.

Hair Loss and Cysteine Hair Growth

Studies show that people with alopecia, hair loss or thinning hair have decreased glutathione, cysteine and SOD levels. It had been thought that cysteine could help. Then in the year 2000, a study confirmed it.

A study from Germany demonstrated that combining millet extract, Vitamin B5 (Pantothenic Acid) and the amino acid L-Cysteine can help hair to normal growth rates.

But, simply increasing cysteine will not help. Taking mega-doses of cysteine will not help either. This is because the cysteine has to get to the area where there is hair growth.

It is also necessary to increase the blood supply to the skin where the hair follicles are so that the cysteine can get there.

You also need to have certain minerals in order for the process to work. The best way to get the needed trace minerals is using the Water Cures Protocol.

Diatomaceous earth (food grade) can also provide some of the needed elements of hair production, making it stronger. Silica is an essential mineral we need but is not readily available.

Another clue that boosting your intracellular glutathione could help with hair stimulation is inflammation. Part of the process that causes hair to thin is because of inflammation. Boosting intracellular glutathione will help reduce inflammation.

To show how misinformation can happen, one site suggested eating 2 eggs a day for the cysteine in the yolk. The problem is that cysteine is very fragile and cooking or blending it causes the cysteine to break down into a form that is not beneficial for boosting glutathione.

Trichotillomania or Tric is one area related to hair with a number of studies showing n-acetyl-cysteine can help. This is a supplement form of cysteine you can get from most health food stores and often in a drug store.

Here is a study in Arch Gen Psychiatry from 2009 on the use of N-acetylcysteine In the Treatment of Trichotillomania, a double-blind, placebo-controlled study. Trichotillomania or Tric is a compulsion to pull out ones hair.

The study Concluded: N-acetylcysteine was significantly effective in reducing trichotillomania symptoms. There were no adverse reactions from using NAC, as it was well tolerated. Modulation of the glutamate system may prove beneficial in controlling numerous compulsive behaviors.

Numerous forum postings refer to using NAC and vitamin C to help prevent hair thinning.

    Usually there is something more wrong that just being dehydrated. Often there is a condition called fluid and electrolyte imbalance, less than bodies needs. There is a simple, easy and inexpensive way to correct this, allowing your body to produce even more GSH

    The Water Cures Protocol really works. Give it a try today.
