Research shows that a tocotrienol complex – a form of vitamin E different than most E supplements – may increase hair growth in men with alopecia – baldness. The eight-month study, done at the School of Pharmaceutical Sciences at University of Science Malaysia, followed 28 subjects with male pattern baldness.

According to data provided by Dr. Sharon Ling presented at the 2009 Vitafoods International Conference, the subjects, who were between 18 and 59 years old, supplemented 100 milligrams of a tocotrienal complex called Tocomin SupraBio produced by Carotech. The supplement is reported by the company to increase tocotrienol availability by 300 percent.

The randomized, placebo-controlled study also gave a placebo group a capsule, this one containing soybean oil. Both groups did not alter their lifestyles or diets outside of the supplementation intervention.

The researchers found that hair growth significantly increased by 41.8% among the tocotrienol group, but no significant growth occurred among the placebo group. Hair growth was calculated by counting the number of hairs within a selected area of the balding men’s scalp.
