More money for big pharma and more hair for the average self conscious MPB sufferer.
    Yeah that makes sense. Thanks. Can you also answer my last question about minoxidil?

    From what I know minox is inhibiting the hydroxylation of Lysine in vitro. This is a crucial step because the different collagen polypeptides are link together via an Hydrogen bond called Schiff base and without it collagen structure will be deficient. A problem well known with Scurvy as vitamin C is a mandatory coenzyme for said hydroxylation. That being said, in vivo studies didn't replicate those results from what I have read. Anyway minox barely works for it's intended purpose, it's a pain to apply and you mess with your blood pressure on a daily basis. I would never touch it either.
