Has anyone tried shen min or fo-ti?

Either topically or as a supplement?


I am little concerned about the hepatic reactions, but some people swear by this...

I started taking this a number of months ago, not necessarily for length, but because my hair was thinning and falling out faster then it normally had because of extreme stress in my life at the time.

After two months my whole head started to itch, which was a good thing. It was NEW HAIR! And then after 3-4 months I noticed 1" of 'new' hair in all those thinning spots.

Before the stress I already had A LOT of hair so the thinning and falling out was noticeable to nobody but me. But *I* knew and it concerned me.

Now, my hair is waist length, my nails are healthy too and I still take the supplement daily. I recommended it to my Mom and she likes it.

I just recommended it to a friend/client (I work in law and she suing the salon) who a local salon had RUINED her hair and scalp with chemicals. She has to cut her hair really short and get weekly protein treatments.

I do recommend reading the warnings & maybe consulting your doc if you have had prior liver issues, but as with everything, just don't over do it.

I really, REALLY, like this supplement and did much research and read hundreds of reviews before buying it.
Thanks for the response!


Is there any particular brand you recommend? I see they have different formulas.

Which did you take? The foti root or the Shen Min?

It seems that you got some nice growth. This may be good for me when I come off of the aminos.

I don't have any liver issues I am aware of, but I did hear about the hepatitis outbreak. I am wondering if that was an isolated thing.

Thanks again.

I am leaning towards the shen min after much research.

I have decided to take the fo ti and not the Shen Min. The Shen Min sounds exciting, but I thought about it being a proprietary blend. I am taking a lot of other supplements and I don't want to OD on anything like zinc or Vitamin A if that is in the blend and then end up with the opposite effect - losing hair. Since fo-ti is the dominant ingredient in Shen Min - then I think I will try that first.

I just bought some Shen min from The Vitamin Shop yesterday after doing alot of research on it and reading reviews, I plan on only taking a 3rd of the recommended dosage, it recommends 3 so I'm taking 1 to make sure I don't overdose on vitamin A or zinc. I take Garden of Life's Raw One Multi, it has a lot of nutrients already, along with Source Naturals Evening Primrose oil, since evening primrose oil is said to not only balance the homones, but encourage the blood flow to the scalp. But back to the shen min, lol, I prefer the original formulation of it because it doesn't have added estrogen like the formula for women does, it's not good to OD on estrogen. I'm 24, an age where most women produce enough estrogen.

I was lurking on a male baldness website and there was a guy who said you I found the perfect thing to re grow my hair - except it makes me grow breasts! LOL
