Does topical SSKI (potassium iodide) work in place of progesterone? T3?
Usually, there is something to oppose 5-AR/androgens and something to increase growth/IGF-1. Which is doing which here? Would added capsaicin be relevant? MSM
I don't believe in opposing 5-AR/Androgens to regrow hair. I am aware that this is not the view of the majority.
But if that is the intent, Zix (Zinc/B6) can take care of that. Zinc is a known inhibitor of 5-aR at high doses. Together they also decrease prolactin, cortisol and increase progesterone which I think is the main reason for its effectiveness.
I don't know much about potassium iodide. I'm sure capsaicin is useful as well, curcumin is also a carbonic anhydrase inhibitor.
However, I believe in keeping things simple.
