Something that finally seems to be working against hair loss
it is great product, my hair is getting better
I’m a female in my very early 30’s and an inexplicable case of hair loss that no doctor or blood test seems to be able to detect ‘medically’. Purchased NOW L-Cysteine after my dermatologist recommended it to me as a non medical solution. Seems to be working after 5 months of religious use – new hairs are sprouting all over my head.
It is so dense, that it is not possible to swallow the pill. If it is chewed it so very acid that it attacks even your tongue, and who knows if it is agressive with your teeth too. 1 star for the quantity
Everybody wants thick hair & skin and this is the pill that can support that goal. I take this regularly and I’m seeing considerably less hair fal
This is unbelievable product. I can`t believe how it made to look my hair. I am taking this with another product of now food Biotin, so it makes this one works even faster. My hair is growing faster and look much better. I love this product
Before my hair fall out about 30-50 a day. It felt like my hair was under nourished and was thinning noticeably. But after only a couple of days of taking this product, my hair roots started to get stronger and no more than 10 hair a day fall out. I’m really impressed with it. I used to try L-Methionine, L-Tyrosine, and L-Arginine but nothing worked on my hair like L-Cysteine. This is my second purchase, coz I gave my first bottle to my mom who is also seeing RESULTS!!
works well for restless legs
NOW L-Cysteine is an amino acid that is an important component of hair, nails and the keratin of the skin. I took this product with a multi-vitamin for months. I did notice my hair growing faster and thicker!! If this will stop working, I will add Biotin and MSM
Good for finger nails that split and strength of skin tissue
Good for hair, skin, nails, scalp, connective tissue! We found that after using it for about a month we had noticeable results.
This is a wonderful product! I have been using it for almost 6 months and after about 4 weeks I noticed an improvement with daily hair loss. I can honestly say that it has cut my hair loss by at least 50% and my hair is more abundant and the longest it has ever been (have not cut it in 31/2 months). This product has not changed the texture or diameter of my hair but hair loss, especially with hair washing, has improved beyond my expectations. I have not experienced any side effects such as the after taste that has been reported and I take it along with other antioxidants.
as an alternative to NAC for liver detox and support, because it is good to pause or alternate ALL supplements.
