Can Big Muscles can lead to Big Amounts of Hair Loss?
Is Boron good for muscles and hair? Is it possible to have both great hair and big muscles....
Many supplements are great for working out. They increase muscle mass by increasing the level free Testosterone and DHT in the body. People who are sensitive to DHT hair loss or MPB (Male Pattern Baldness) will suffer from the effects of the extra Free T.
A recent study was done on the effects of Boron on Free Testosterone and SHBG (Sex Hormone Binding Globulin).
Comparative effects of daily and weekly boron supplementation on plasma steroid hormones and proinflammatory cytokines.
Naghii MR1, Mofid M, Asgari AR, Hedayati M, Daneshpour MS.
Eight healthy male volunteers attended the laboratory on three occasions (days 0, 1 and 7).
"the objective was to determine whether acute (hourly or daily), and weekly supplementation could have any significant biological effects on the steroid hormones and further on some inflammatory biomarkers".
" Six hours supplementation showed a significant decrease on sex hormone binding globulin (SHBG), high sensitive CRP (hsCRP) and TNF-α level. After one week (in samples taken at 8.00 A.M, only), the mean plasma free testosterone increased and the mean plasma estradiol decreased significantly. Dihydrotestosterone, cortisol and vitamin D was elevated. Also, concentrations of all three inflammatory biomarkers decreased after supplementation. Of note, despite decreased proinflammatory cytokines, based on recent clinical data, this must be the first human study report to show an increase level of free testosterone after boron consumption."
