That seems like a hell of a lot, but it looks like that's what most people take. My bottle says 1000 mg a day is suggested, so I'm wondering what everyone else who is taking this stuff thinks.

Foundation,

It depends on what you are taking it for.

Know that MSN doesn't cause transplanted hair to come out of resting faster. It only may cause hair growth to accelerate. Most who take it usually takes 2 X 1500 MG tablets daily.

Best wishes,

Bill

Thanks Bill, I've been taking three 1,000 mg capsules at once everyday around 3, I guess I'll just start taking one in the morning, one mid day and one at night.

But, is there any scientific evidence that M2M works for hairloss and hair growth ? I asked my HT doctor's asst and she said that there is zero scientific evidence that M2M will help grow hair.

If anyone had solid scientific evidence that could be shared that would be great.

MSM Contains Suflur...and aside from being good for hair, it helps to with joint control when combined with glucosamine and chondroitin.

What's so good about Sulfur? Methyl-Sulfonyl-Methane (MSM) is organic sulfur, a naturally occurring compound in the human body. MSM is an odorless white crystal with a bitter taste in its purest form. Sulfur is a natural material that is required to perform certain biological functions in humans and animals. Within moderate levels, MSM helps the proper functioning of various biological processes involving healthy skin, strong nails and thick hair.

For these reasons and more, MSM appears to be a versatile supplement because it has been used for a variety of health applications. Because MSM is a form of sulfur need for the body, it is an indispensable component in human nutrition. Sulfur exist in every cell in the body and it is biologically, structurally, and functionally important to 150 compounds. Sulfur is also necessary for bio-chemical operations involving hormones, enzymes, antibodies, and antioxidants. Thus, MSM supplementation is a necessary component in sustaining human health.

Taking MSM for Hair Growth
When it comes to MSM, hair loss is something that it can help with. That is because MSM is a sulfide which is said to stimulate hair growth. MSM is appearing in topical creams for this purpose. However, you can also take it internally in supplement form.

The added benefit of taking it internally is that it will do more for your body than simply help your hair. It will also help your nails and skin and any arthritis like pains that you may be experiencing.

Keep in mind that hair loss could also indicate a lack of nutrition in your body. It is a good idea to take a multi vitamin and mineral formula with a wide range of healthful ingredients. Like Total Balance by Xtend-Life(containing 68mg elemental Sulfur). They have several different formulas so just choose the one that fits your lifestyle.

Some people claim taking MSM has boosted the growth of their scalp and body hair and nails. The only study I could find on the subject was done by Ronald M. Lawrence, who is also the co-author of the book 'The Miracle of MSM: The Natural Solution for Pain'. In the study, they fed 21 patients either 3,000 mg of MSM or a placebo. The patients taking MSM reported increased hair growth, brilliance and thickness, and improvement in nail strength, thickness and appearance after only 6 weeks. The sample size seems quite small, and the results haven't been reproduced elsewhere, so I'm not entirely convinced yet.

But what the heck!

A healthy body is the ideal environment for healthy hair to thrive. This means that a good metabolism, and immune system are also key factors for growing healthy hair fast. So, your hair vitamin should contain specific nutrients that are essential for faster hair growth. For example, MSM lengthens the natural hair growth phase allowing greater lengths to be achieved. Biotin, another key ingredient, promotes cell growth, the production of fatty acids, metabolism of fats, and amino acids. These two ingredients in addition to the others (Folic Acid, Niacin, Silica, etc) are all essential for for maximizing hair growth.

The anagen phase is the hair's growth phase. It is genetically determined. This is why some people can grow very long hair, while others cannot grow hair past their shoulders. A person who has an angen phase lasting six years will achieve much greater lengths than a person with only a two year anagen. Why is this? Because the hair grows in three phases: the anagen is the growth phase, the catagen is the growth phase and the telogen is the shedding phase.

Have you ever noticed that many women's hair will grow much longer than normal when they are pregnant. This is because the high levels of estrogen that are present during pregnancy lock the hair follicles into the growth phase for nine months. Shortly after giving birth, however, these hormone levels return to normal and many hairs immediately go into the catagen then telogen phase, making it seem like they are losing their hair.

So what can you do to make your anagen as long as possible? Until recently, it was something only genetics and pregnancy could do. Now, however, there is another option - MSM. Methylsolfonylmethane, or MSM, is a natural form of organic sulfonyl sulfur. This compound is present in many foods, especially most raw fruits and green vegetables. MSM provides sulfur that is required for healthy collagen and keratin. These are very important for healthy hair. MSM repairs and creates healthy cells thus allowing hair to grow more rapidly and achieve greater lengths.

Your hair vitamins do not need to contain amino acids. This is because the use of an amino acid supplement is not necessary for growing longer hair. Amino Acids are the building blocks of protein. Thy are found in foods of animal origin, such as meat, poultry, fish, eggs, and dairy products. Most Americans eat more than enough protein to supply these amino acids. Any excess protein will be excreted in urine. This excess protein also causes excess nitrogen to be excreted in the urine which has been been linked to reduced kidney function in old age as well as osteoperosis (due to excretion of calcium). Only STRICT vegetarians should be concerned about their protein intake.

Hair vitamins can increase your hair growth rate by up to 200%. However, to get the longest hair possible, you also need to eliminate all sources of breakage. If your hair is breaking at the same rate it is growing, it may seem as if your hair is not growing at all. Eliminating breakage involves the consistent use of gentle, but effective products.
