Resveratrol and minoxidil synergistic?

.
I’m giving my first go with the minoxidil. As a longevity enthusiast, it is a fascinating experience. Current model predicts that minoxidil and flavonoids may have convergent effects, due to related effects on vascularization. Perhaps no surprise then, I seem to be responding well to the minoxidil, possibly good response appearing in the first 30 days. I should have another look at the literature. I would not be surprised to see a synergistic response combining with flavonoids. I’m responding well in my mid-50’s, I only have mildly thinning male pattern. My BP is good, but higher than I want. Minoxidil helps w/that.

Here is something. flavonoids may interfere with minoxidil metabolism. That would explain it.

Don’t worry, I’m keeping an eye on BP, and other contra-indications.

People always associate hair growth with the snake oil. It sadly impedes the research somewhat. There are some reports that apple polyphenols are a good minoxidil replacement. I can’t yet tell if this is serious.

The French have something that is maybe worth a look.

It looks like the European supplement community is combining minoxidil and resveratrol. No surprise. This all impinges on the MAOB inhibitor story. Wow! Minoxidil adverse reports are rare. No surprise I can’t find any problems with combining minoxidil and flavonoids.

Almost no research about this. This is interesting.

In this article, Hesperidin affects potassium current. Minoxidil also does this. http://1.usa.gov/1VClj8P

I’ll give further reports, if I learn anything
more about this.
