Interesting article on an experimental approach to hair growth

There are several other publications also on sulforaphane, an isothiocyanate which has been extensively studied in relation to the hair follicle as well as other systems (such as cancer prevention): Example: Sulforaphane (SF maintains HF proliferation and active hair growth (anagen) during oxidative HF damage  (Haslam et al. 2016).  This compound is present in broccoli and can be found in tablet form sold as cancer preventative, increasing energy etc. I’m surprised no one is selling it yet to promote hair growth. In the meantime tell everyone to eat broccoli! (comments by Nilifer Farjom MD)
