View Full Version : Minox - why is works with some and not others

Trial being carried out to see if can establish which of us have a bio marker that would signify if Minox would work - namely the existence of a certain enzyme...

"Minoxidil is converted in the scalp to its active form, minoxidil sulfate, by the sulfotransferase enzyme SULT1A1. The enzyme expression is variable among individuals"

For those that do not have the enzyme, i do remember that people were able to source Minox Sulfate in power form direct from China, however, not sure if they managed to keep it stable.

Anyway, thought interesting to share that is a potential reason for those who have had no joy plus that the majority wont get growth altho' would have expected more to get growth than 30/40%.

Not sure if binary relationship between growth and maintenance i.e. if some cant get growth by M does help to maintain

Very interesting. Does anyone know where I could buy minoxidl sulfate powder? I would like to try 5% daily batches. Thanks

So Jazz can you suggest Susan to use Min sulphate instead of Min in the solution?
