    I would not rely on personal stories or testimony from random forum guy as to whether a treatment works or not.
    I am basically on nothing right now and might just wait for CB 03 01 and hopefully bypass propecia even if I lose some hair. I would rather stay safe then trade my health for my hair.
    Its pretty obvious nothing besides propecia or dut does much of anything and Im not going to mix random chemicals like RU in my basement everyday in hopes that works. Options currently just arent any good

    I thought Nature Made was working on an S-Equol product?

    According to Cosmos Pharmaceuticals phase II will be completed in 2014. Are you sure you're going to wait that long for it? I mean at that pace Histogen may be available sooner in Asia. I'm speaking as if CB goes to Phase III of course.

    Pinot Q, you seem very well read about S-equol. Everything you have said makes sense, but I was wondering how you know that it will bind to DHT as opposed to ERβ or ERα (at a lower affinity).

    I am referencing the bottom of this page, biological activity section: http://www.naturalequol.com/about.html

    Edit: nevermind, the study makes it clear that s-equol has a high enough affinity for DHT at a particular level.

    Californication, There are many many studies on this but here is a great summary: http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases...0330090046.htm

    Interesting. That was 9 years ago, do you know if the same team has been doing work related to Equol the entire time?

    My understanding is that we just need the tablet to be released for some affliction or other (menopause perhaps?) and once that is done, we can buy it and figure out an appropriate dose based on the per kg rule you stated.

    I believe they have continued to devote most of their time to the study of s-equol. If you look at the Natural S-Equol website, you will see Setchell's name listed in some of the other research studies, the latest looks to be 2010 but there are other studies you can probably find by just googling. I also believe that this team has some interest in a company called AusioPharmaceuticals which has been doing clinical studies. S-equol is apparently a GRAS (generally recognized as safe) product so it does not need FDA approval to be released. Nature Made can release it when they are ready and it can be used for any purpose.....no prescription needed. Not sure about what claims they can make but they have spent a lot of time and money on sampling trials and I believe they will widely publicize the results of these trials along with testimonials to jump sales. My guess is this will be on the market in 3 to 6 months..........but no later than 10 months at the outside. All this being said, no one knows what kind of dose you would need to affect MPB or whether s-equol would just slow down the process or completely stop it (with hopefully a little bump in growth or diameter). But it will almost certainly be the next legitimate possibility to hit the market. With every other product in the pipeline out to a minimum of 2016 at best (and assuming something actually works), s-equol at least offers a reasonable possibility to maintain.

    Any updates?

    It's exciting to see the next potential treatment becoming available very very soon. Especially after the recent data from other companies.

    Thumbs up

    Info from this patent (aside from the fact that they claim S Equol is an anti aging miracle among other benefits) seems to show that it can easily be applied topically. So in theory would we be able to inhibit DHT directly with a S Equol topical? Seems too good to be true.. But according to most data, it should work!
