Antioxidant boost backup source?

Antioxidant boost backup source? Empty Antioxidant boost backup source?

Post  joe123 on Wed Jan 30, 2019 12:24 am

Hi there,

Iíve been a customer of Hair Evo since 2015. The Ecklonia Cava and antioxidant boost have worked wonders for my hair ó Iím so glad I found this place. Recently, Iíve been having some issue with the Ortho Nutrition antioxidant boost. Iíd get through about a weeks worth of product, and then my hair would start to deteriorate. I know this because I did some A/B testing of all the products that Iíve been using. Opening a new bottle of antioxidant boost resolved the problem.

But I donít understand why the product starts to loose effectiveness once opened for a week. I thought perhaps the climate here in Australia is spoiling the product, but I have never had an issue previously. First thing I tried was placing the container in an air-tight re-sealable bag after use. This had no effect. My last bottle I put it in the fridge inside re-sealable container thinking the cooler environment might be better. But, same result.

While this has been going on, Iíve been researching this forum for the raw ingredients found in the anti oxidant boost.

Hereís what Iíve come up with for the closet match and tried:
Jarrow Formulas, Curcumin 95, 500 mg, 60 Veggie Cap
https://au.iherb.com/pr/Jarrow-Formulas-Curcumin-95-500-mg-60-Veggie-Caps/106

Nature's Answer, Resveratrol Reserve, Cellular Complex, 5 fl oz (150 ml)
https://au.iherb.com/pr/Nature-s-Answer-Resveratrol-Reserve-Cellular-Complex-5-fl-oz-150-ml/23375

MRM, Quercetin, 500 mg, 60 Vegan Capsules
https://au.iherb.com/pr/MRM-Quercetin-500-mg-60-Vegan-Capsules/12059

Jarrow Formulas, BroccoMax, Myrosinase Activated SGS, 60 Veggie Caps
https://au.iherb.com/pr/Jarrow-Formulas-BroccoMax-Myrosinase-Activated-SGS-60-Veggie-Caps/4297

Some notes from the above formula: 500mg of Curcumin is far too much for me in one hit ó it actually had a negative impact on my hair. I have an alternative that has 285mg of curcumin instead: https://au.iherb.com/pr/Thompson-Turmeric-Curcumin-300-mg-60-Capsules/16094

The trans resveratrol mentioned contains a 99% extract ó much like the antioxidant boost, though in liquid form. This has had little impact. Is there a better source?

The MRM Quercetin and Jarrow BroocoMax donít seem to have any effect.

I suspect it must have something to do with synergey effect of curcumin and trans-resveratrol, the amount, and the strength of the ingredients.

My fear is if I canít stabilise an alternative anti oxidant boost, my hair will thin out. Itís also very difficult to get hold of the Antioxidant Boost from Hair Evo since international shipping is broken on the website, and Dan is super busy filling orders. Of course, perhaps my MPB is just getting more aggressive as I get older.

If anyone has advice on any of this, Iíd really appreciate it! Thanks!

John

Hi John,

Dan is currently incapacitated and it's not exactly certain when issues at Hairevo will be resolved.

I will update as soon as any new information comes out.

Regarding Antioxidant Boost alternatives. Let us know which version works out.

Thanks CS. Update of where things are at:

All of a sudden the inflammation levels on my scalp have increased -- hair follicles are being supressed. Upping my Ecklonia cava intake and Antioxidant boost has helped, but long term I'm not sure this is a good idea. I can feel my head burning atm... Any suggestions for getting the inflammation down? Is there topicals I should be looking at?

I found by merging the Curcumin and Resveratrol (powder-form) into a single capsule seems to have had impact when using the raw ingredients.

Probably have some other source of inflammation (maybe something new)... Sometimes it's dietary, environmental or iatrogenic.
