As you may or may not know, I live in Central Europe right now. I am trying to do everything I can for my receding hairline, without using things like Minox, RU, etc. I know I should probably post this in the naturals forum, but here goes:

In order to cut costs, and not waste time and money, I have cut down on my “supplements” that I take per month. What did I replace those with?

New from Ducray Laboratories in France, ANACAPS:

Please note I am NOT a salesman and you cannot even get this stuff on the web or in North America.

Ingredients:

Per 471 mg capsule:

Evening Primrose Oil, Bamboo extract (vegetal silica), Watercress extract (vegetal sulphur), yellow bee wax (emulsifier), Zinc sulphate 20.65mg (7.5 mg of Zinc*), Soya extracts (guranteed without GMO) 10 mg, Vit PP 9 mg*, Vit E 5mg*, Soya lecithin (guranteed without GMO), Vit B5 3 mg*, Vit B6 1 mg*, Vit B8 0.075 mg*, Tunica Gelatine, Glycerin, Cornstarch, Colouring E171, E110.

*covers 100% of the recommended daily intake in 2 capsules per day

Nutritional analysis for 100g:
Proteins 15.358g, Glucides 20.958g, Lipids 38.990g, Others 24.694g

Energy value:
Per 100g: 482 Kcal or 1998Kj.
Per capsule: 2.3 Kcal or 9.7 Kj.

What is written on the outside package (note that it is not perfect English, so there are some poor word choices {i.e. cure}):

“Properties: The loss of hair is due to a complex process involving a dysfunction of enzymatic mechanisms and an accumulation of free radicals at the hair bulb level. As a consequence, the latter, located at the base of the hair, ages prematurely: it becomes atrophied and no longer maintains the correct growth of the hair. In order to respond to this problem, The Ducray Dermatological Laboratories have especially developed Anacps, a nutritional supplement specific for hair loss formulated with soya extracts. These extracts, high in isoflavones, have the ability to act directly on the enzymatic functions of the hair bulb and thus encourage hair growth. Moreover, soya isoflavones, endowed with a strong anti-free radicular activity and one that protects mircrocirculation, prevent premature ageing of the hair. Anacaps also supplies all the nutriennts essential to the energy equilibrium of the hair bulb (vitamins, sulfurated elements and vegetal silica). This is why Anacaps is recommended as a nutritional supplement at a time of hair loss and more generally to restore the hair of all its strength and beauty.”

Directions for use: Take 2 capsules in the morning at breakfast. For best results, follow this cure for a minimum of 3 months.

Any feedback?

Here is my current regime:
Folligen, Anastim topical by Ducray (anti-DHT among other things), Propecia, Nizoral 2%, Ducray’s Anaphase Shampoo, L-Arginine (oral), multi-vitamin, Taurine (anti-oxidant) and now Anacaps by Ducray. One bottle contains 1 month supply, or 60 caps.

What do you guys think?

Here’s what I think:
1. The “ANACAPS” may be a good vitamin supplement, but they’ll provide no benefit as far as your receeding hair line goes.
2. You’re already using Propecia, which is not a natural.
3. Add Minoxidil to your treatment. Used in conjunction with Propecia it will greatly increase your chances of good results!

I agree with Sandman-Anacaps may improve the hair condition but won’t re-grow hair.

Thanks. I never thought they would re-grow hair, just help the health of my hair and possibly contribute to slowing down the loss. Considering 1 month supply is a meger 15 bucks US, not much to lose here.

Ducray products are only available in Europe, from my understanding. In fact, some French Dermatologists prescribe the Ducray System for hair loss sufferers.

Ducray offers a 4 step system to fighting MPB:
1) Internals – ANACAPS
2) Topical DHT inhibitor and blood flow stimulator ANASTIM, among other things
3) A new Topical called CHROMASTIM. Not sure what this product does, as all the info is in French
4) ANAPHASE shampoo, Biotin and other ingredients in it. I love it, very nice shampoo – smells good and is smooth and delicate on the scalp. It claims to prepare the scalp for hair loss treatment and help stimualte hair growth.

I really like Ducray, but am unsure if their Topicals work. However, I like their ANACAPS idea, as they have combined many substances in one. Not sure how effective though, but they must have researched this stuff because they are a reputable company out here.

I am actually going to write them a letter asking them if they have any plans to improve their topical formula and whether they would open up shop in North America.

Eating a healthy diet will provide you with ALL the vitamins and minerals the average person needs.

Look at the people who are starving in Africa, they all appear to have full heads of hair.
Vitamins play NO role in hair regrowth, however overdosing on certain vitamnins such as Vitamin A can lead to hairloss.

Taking Finisteride, Minoxidil, or Dutasteride is your only help for hairloss.

The Laser Comb has been FDA approved in Canada as a Hair Regrowth Device and they are allowed to make the claim that it stops hairloss and regrows hair (In Canada they can, but not yet FDA approved in the USA)
