BioSil™ improves hair quality


A clinical trial of BioSil™, a silicon supplement, showed that the product increases hair thickness, strength and elasticity.  The 9-month test included 48 women with fine hair;  half were given the silicon supplement while the other half were given a placebo.  The group taking BioSil™ showed significant results, including a  3.8 percent increase in hair fiber diameter, which was almost three times as much as the placebo group. Additionally, the placebo group displayed a 10.8 percent decrease in the elasticity of their hair fibers while the BioSil™ group displayed no change at all.
 
Silicon tablets consist of stabilized orthosilicic acid, an acid that facilitates bone calcification and mineralization.  Lack of silicon in the body is known to cause brittle hair and nails, skeletal abnormalities and thin arteries and capillaries.

A new treatment for hair loss?  Hardly.  A supplement that may be able to slow the degenerative characteristics of aging, namely hair loss?  Well, the results from the clinical trials appear to think so.

Trav, I've never heard of it being used topically, aren't you supposed to use it just orally?

Mary Jane, maybe you would have tolerated Iosol better since it is water soluble. I have heard to stay away from Iodoral..

I'm tempted to try the Biosil. I have this coupon code at iherb.com HAK686 which takes $5 off but would like to know whether this stuff just makes hair grow faster or actually causes new growth.. in the meantime, feel free to use my coupon HAK686

On May 20 my DC(chiropractor) placed me on Iodoral twice a day , he said I had hypothyroidism without proper blood work, I told him my TSH was normal 2.75. The RDA for iodine is 150 mcg. Iodoral is a strong form of iodine and the dose he gave me was 4 times the strength I needed. I had no sign/symptoms of hypothyroidism except some cold/feet hands. Needless to say I had a terrible reaction & went into full blown hypothyroidism in 3 weeks. Had vision changes, wt. gain, hair loss, GI disturbances, edema, & fatigue. I went to my PCP after being off the product for 8 days, he had no appointments any early than that. He exam me and said I had a heart rate of 108 and EKG changes. What happened after stopping the iodine immediately, I went into hyperthyroidism and lost even more hair. I went to a dermatologist MD that specializes in hair loss. He felt the Iodine increased my hair loss. Now I have to see an endocrinologist and cardiologist. I have always been healthy, weight train, power walk, & eat well. This is what the MD said that specializes in hair loss, there is nothing that can grow hair back quickly, but the good news is this, my hair will grow back he said and told me to take BioSil capsules (2 daily) along with 5000 mcg(1 capsule) or 5 mg of Biotin daily with food. I hope everyone is careful about over the counter supplements and talk to their MD before taking. If one has a normal thyroid and is given Iodine the thyroid will not function properly, after stopping the Iodoral, my TSH fell from 2.75 to 1.63. The higher the TSH more change of hypothyroid and the lower the TSH more change of hyperthyroid. Please pass this post onto everyone so they don't waste their money on products that don't work per my MD.

You should actually give this a try. I'm 22 and thinning, I've been taking BioSil (in liquid form, glycerin) for about 8 months and my front corners have thickened and even started growing new hair strands too in areas where there were no hair originally. I use it both orally and topically.
