How To Make Super Zix II With Vodka
Supporting Journal Abstracts
Here's what you need:
1 container that is at least 8 ounces and has a cap
that won't leak when you shake it up. 2 empty minoxidil
containers with eyedropper. (2 oz each)
1 220 mg zinc sulfate capsule. (Each 220mg zinc sulfate capsule actually only contains 50mg
of elemental zinc).
3 50mg b-6 capsules.
3 oz.(90mls) of distilled water. (Not spring water but distilled water). You
can purchase at your local supermarket. It is very cheap.
1 oz (30 mls) of Vodka that is 40% ethyl alcohol.
A small amount of polysorbate 80.
10 mls of Hair Muck.
Add 3 oz (90 mls) of distilled water to 1 oz (30 mls) of 40% vodka to your large 8 ounce
container. Then add the zinc, b-6 and 10 mls of the Hair Muck.
Then add 5 drops of the polysorbate 80. Close the
container and shake well. Then pour the contents into both 2 ounce
minoxidl (Rogaine) containers.
The vodka will serve as a penetrant (helps to get the
ingredients into the follicles) and a preservative (prevent bacterial
growth) however it will not stop the oxidation of the fats in the
saw palmetto. To slow the "spoiling" of the saw palmetto I
recommend making only enough of the formula to last 1-2 month supply at a time.
How To Make An Azelaic Acid Solution
The exciting thing about adding azelaic acid to our topical treatments
is that we are closely mimicking the same formula that has been demonstrated
in vitro to reduce 5AR by 90% in very low concentrations. That's quite substantial but remember it's only an invitro study and not actual proof of efficacy.
I've messed around with
azelaic acid for some time now and I have found that whenever you
simply add it to the zix formula it ends up ruining the entire thing.
It's OK for a few days and then a preciptiate forms, rendering all
the ingredients useless. I also wonder if this could be the very
same reason why products such as Revivogen and Crinagen seem to
have poor success record. Could the same thing that happens when I add
azelaic acid to zix be happening with these commercial products as
well? For this reason we mix the azelaic acid in a seperate solution .
We apply it twice per day. We apply it first, then wait a
minute or two, then apply the Super Zix II.
There are some hair loss remedies that contain a 5% solution of azelaic acid. One of
the more famous is a product sold by Dr Lee called Xandrox. I have
always believed this product was effective but ridiculously priced.
So that's where I got the idea to utilize a 5% solution.
Unfortunately because we are utilizing vodka which is only 40% alcohol the
highest concentration we can dissolve is 2.5%. In all likelyhood
this is probably a high enough concentration to work just as well as
the 5% version. If you still want to utilize a 5% solution I would
recommend applying the 2.5% formula, wait a minute or two
and then apply it again.
It is a simple brew to make. All you need to do is mix the appropriate
amount of azelaic acid in the vodka and allow enough time for it to dissolve.
Shaking it occassionally will speed up the process. If you wish to make 4
ounces of a 2.5% solution (a very liberal one month supply) you would simply
add 3 grams of azelaic acid to 4 ounces of ethly alcohol. Then
just give it 60-90 minutes to dissolve. The problem for most people
will be in determining how much of the azelaic acid powder (more like
flakes than a powder) equals 3 grams. If you have a gram scale you
have no problem. Just measure out 3 grams and mix it with your 4
ounces of vodka. If you do not, all you really need is a one ounce
clear plastic medicine cup. Those who order the azelaic acid from
me will receive with it a clear measuring cup. If you fill the
medicine cup to the 5cc or 5ml line that will be about 3 grams of azelaic
acid flakes. Then just dump it in your bottle that contains 4
ounces of vodka. It will not mix immediately but will dissolve within
60-90 minutes. As soon as it is completely dissolved it is ready
to apply to your scalp.
It is best to apply the AA with an eye dropper. Apply a thin coat to all
areas you wish to treat. Using one hand apply a drop or two to an area of your scalp and
immediately when the drop hits your scalp use tha finger on your other
hand to quickly rub it around before it rolls off your scalp.
Proceed in this fashion until you have covered all the scalp surfaces
you wish to treat. Upon completion wait a minute or two for it to dry
before applying the Super Zix formula.
Be prepared the first
few times you apply the AA. It tends to cause a "flushing" and
itching of the scalp. In my experience this effect will gradually
diminish as you keep using the substance over days and weeks. The
first time you apply it though it can be somewhat distressing because
you may not understand what is happening. The flushing and itching
usually subsides within a few minutes after applying it however in
some individuals it can last for several hours. To be on the safe
side you may want to apply the AA the first time to a small area
and see how you tolerate it. Then gradually increase the area you
apply it to.
