Misirlou - A few people emailed me info on Alma, so after taking a closer look, it's quite valuable.

Emblica officinalis or Alma is used in Ayurvedic medicine, but what makes this interesting is that it can lower blood pressure substantially, lower triglycerides, and increase the beneficial HDL cholesterol.

These three actions are excellent for maintaining hair growth and aiding regrowth.

In addition, Alma reduces C-Reactive protein (CRP), which is a measure of inflammation in the body.

Alma can be found here, and it's recommended to take 500 milligrams per day.http://www.iherb.com/ProductDetails.aspx?c=1&pid=3693

Yes! that was the one I was looking at before! Is this pill safe to open and mix and then swallow?

Iherb is nr uno right?
I was thinking about Puritan, I mean, if you buy 2 you get 4 FREE! That's insane right? Are they really safe?

I bit afraid that a daily intake of a lot of different stuff would perhaps result in intoxication to some extend. I hope you guys could help me put something nasty together.

Misirlou - Emblica officinalis or Alma is quite healthy. It's quite rare for an herb to have a toxicity and when it does, it is well known.

The media often overstates implied risks as if they were drugs.

I'm not certain of the quality of Puritan's pride. Hopefully we'll get some opinions on it.

i would recommend the paradise herbs brand on iherb for amla (emblica officinalis):

I have used paradise herb products before and they're pretty solid, plus the concentration of amla is better in these capsules.

With regards to amla/indian gooseberry, it has been used in traditional indian medicine for hundreds of years and with regards to hair it is highly recommended, especially as a topical (oil). Pretty much every ayurvedic or naturopathic doctor in india recommends amla as a daily supplement whether or not you are trying to combat a specific condition, because the propensity for high blood pressure and cholesterol in South Asia is probably the highest in the world and amla is quite a potent therapeutic as well as preventative measure. Plus it is a fairly strong source of vitamin C and that surely cant be bad..
