I was wondering if you could answer a question for me. I am a 26 y/o male who is very much into working out (running, weight training, etc). Unfortunately, I am in the beginning stages of MPB as well. I really have changed my whole life around to maintain the hair I have. That being said, I am very cautious about what I put into my body. I came across a supplement at GNC called naNOx9. I was wondering if you knew anything about this supplement, and if so…will it accelerate my hair loss or is it completely healthy? The ingredients are listed below….if you could answer this question for me I would really appreciate it. Dr Rassman, thank you for creating this blog…..I have gained much knowledge about hair loss that I would not ever know otherwise.

Thanks again Dr. Rassman!
Sorry, I do not know of naNOx9. For that matter, I don’t even know how to pR0noUNcE it. The list of ingredients are substantial and I can not attest to how one ingredient impacts another. You have to have faith in the product and the manufacturer and can not just look to a website for such assurance.
I’ll quote myself from a previous blog entry: Millions of dollars are spent on marketing supplements to a health conscious society and it gives a skewed perspective on our health and subliminally gives us the message that we need to take these extra supplements to make us better (lose weight, grow hair, increase our sex drive, build muscle, feel happy, get smarter, reverse aging). As long as things are not done in the extreme and it seems to help, there is nothing wrong with taking supplements. There is no hard medical science supplied which would support the majority of the claims.
