Has anyone tried Solaray S.O.D. 2000 Plus? It seems to have rather positive reviews on amazon.

@pseudocatalase: I think the melitane makes a huge difference, I just couldn't continue my experiment with melitane only as I ran out of product.

@Pseudocatalase: Have you given any thought to stem cell/WNT protein research in regards to this?

My perception is that such things are not ready yet, and my experience in science tells me it could be a very long time.

What do you guys think of homeopathy 

I am someone with a PhD , I do find it hard to believe that some experts in some pseudoscience can cure things where real science fails.
Nonetheless, I should admit I have used homeopathy treatment for vitiligo for 4 months about 9 years ago. At that same time my vitiligo stopped spreading and became stable. It is very hard for me to tell if that was a result of the homeopathy treatment or the other things I used back then.

Now, on dr Shah website, whom I bought my treatment from long time ago, is showing a case of successful grey eyelash treatment.
When I wrote them to ask about it, they said that I should have the treatment for close to 2 years to get the result I am looking for.
Two years of homeopathy bills will cost around 400$ .... It is quiet pricy.

My experience with homeopathy is that it doesn't work and instead of spending tons of posts and months ( years) of hope on something that will most likely not work for most of us, it's better to stick with stuff like melitane, LLLT, PC,....things that do have some scientific background.
As you mentioned it's pricy.
A homeopath once glued a silver penny on my stomach because it would give me the energy to cure an eye infection.
It's just my opinion but I  hope this forum doesn't take that route.

The hypothesis used to support homeopathy is one that holds that increased dilution of the active ingredient equals increased efficacy. If that were true, someone once observed, then we would all be benefitting from optimal doses, because the miniscule amounts excreted that made their way into our environment would constitute an extreme dilution.

One homeopathic physician known to me does not even use diluted compounds, but exposes inert placebo pills to a machine that is purported to deliver the rate of vibration of the desired treatment.

While homeopathy is not a therapy supported by the scientific community, Life Extension does support the right of the individual to access this and other alternative therapies.

Although I agree that you can't count on a homeopathic remedy for gray hair, I have to defend homeopathy as a whole.  I have had family members who had life-long distinct physical problems that were remedied through homeopathy.  It can seem very strange and very counterintuitive but I think the field deserves more respect that it gets.

Over here almost all doctors say: it simply doesn't work unless you believe in it.  It has never helped for me because I only dare to fully believe in stuff once I've experienced it. I see it working for people easily believing in stuff, but more stuff like headaches, earaches,....Things you can't really measure.
Stuff like melitane, LLLT,...seem to have some background and could help people but if we're going to come up with expensive homeopathic therapies and people only lose tons of money on it, it would not be a great evolution IMHO.

Your stance on homeopathy as a cure for gray hair is definitely reasonable.  I also don't feel much confidence in homeopathic remedies for gray hair.  I just wanted to defend homeopathy a little bit in general.

It seems that there will be a modern science based remedy for gray hair at some point.  The question is how long - 1 year, 5 years, 20 years?  I fully expect there to be a remedy at some point in the future when I'm looking much more naturally gray!

So far the most reasonable reviews I saw on reversing grey was LLLT,  just multiple reliable reviews from people not having had the intention to reverse grey but to cure hairloss.
I have tried melitane for two months and I started noticing a darkening of ginger hairs I have, I couldn't continue because I ran out of product but I will start again soon. I've also only used it twice a day for maybe six weeks ( just a matter of not having much product left and having no source to order from at that point) so this time around I will do it religiously twice a day.

The PC alone hasn't done much for forum members here. Don't know if PC plus melitane is better but I'll start with the melitane alone first.

One month ago I also started drinking wheatgrass.
