My sixteen year old's hair grew in seven months from chin length to just below her shoulders (and the kid's long necked like me), and I think it was because her hairdresser had her eating protein bars in the regular.
This is good to know thank you for sharing. I was on a protein challenge yrs ago but got bored with the same thing everyday. I think I'm going to try a variety of protein sources this time, from shakes, bars, lean meat, eggs, and vegetable protein like edamame (soy) beans.

Hair Cocktail Ingredients:
3/4 glass of whole milk (I used SilkSoy Vanilla)
1 raw egg
1 tblspn raw wheat germ oil
2 tblspns raw wheat germ
for flavor, you may add a piece of fruit in season

blend at low speed for thirty to sixty seconds. drink this blended mixture promptly. this drink should serve as your complete breakfast. do not eat or drink anything else for two hours after drinking this mixture. keep all ingredients refrigerated until use. once you notice the changes in your hair you may cut down on the daily intake of the hair cocktail and take it only twice a week. ofcourse, since it is a healthful drink, you may prefer to continue taking it indefinitely.

Be Blessed, I am!

Hey Chickadee,

Thanks for posting this. I am going to try it with egg powder and see if it works. I remember my mom made this for us when we were young and our hair thrived. Thanks again for bringing this back to the forefront.

Please report often, many wishings on healthy hair!

I would try it..especially since I need the protein since I started lifting weights!! Also doesn't cooking the eggs negate some of it's benefits?

Um, I'm freaked out about raw eggs, but the other parts of the shake sounds awesome. Where do you get wheat germ oil from?


Whole Foods, GNC, about $15, you really don't taste the eggs, at all! Many powerlifters, athletes down raw eggs daily - it's considered a superfood. You can get fertile, organic eggs to be safe. You eat raw eggs in Caesar's Salad, in case many of you didn't know....look up the recipe!:yep:

Thanks, babe. My cousins used to drink raw eggs daily and they are all geniuses. I kid you not. It was part of their meal. It helps the brain and the body, and all of the girls had waistlength hair. This was in the 70s-80s as well....

I'm feeling experimentative now. BrBombshell, when you first started taking this drink, did you start off with a whole egg and did it upset your stomach? I know in the 80's my dad drank a few raw eggs every morning when he was bodybuilding and he never had any problems.

I'm going to buy organic eggs this week and wheat germ, maybe the oil as well. That book looks like something I would be so into. thanks again!

Just ordered it from amazon, only came out to 4$

The Health Benefits of Raw Eggs By John Claydon D.Hom



The process of cooking eggs destroy the very goodness that our bodies so desperately need as the nature of proteins and fats is altered when exposed to heat. When cooked, the egg protein changes its chemical shape; it is often this process that can be the cause of allergies. Generally when eating raw eggs, any incidence of egg allergy will disappear.



Surprisingly, in spite of ‘bad press’ raw eggs, organic or at least from a known source of healthy free-range chickens, are an excellent health tonic. The regular consumption of raw eggs will do wonders for your overall health. Exceptionally easy to digest, raw eggs provide a wonderful boost to the immune system, and a completely balanced nutritional package. A good immune system is one of several things the body needs to overcome cancer.



Many people’s diets are deficient in high quality proteins and fats, and eggs are one the very best sources of these. Raw eggs have many benefits, they contain essential nutrients for the brain, nerves, glands and hormones, they are nutritionally balanced, and we highly recommend the addition of raw eggs to your nutritional programme. The sulphur amino acids help to keep you young, raw eggs also contain an abundance of other vital substances including protein, essential fatty acids along with niacin, riboflavin, biotin, choline, vitamins A, D and E, magnesium, potassium, phosphorous, manganese, iron, iodine, copper, zinc and sulphur. Egg yolks are one of the few foods that contain vitamin D.



Poisoning from salmonella has been exaggerated in the past. A study by the U.S. Department of Agriculture in 2002 indicated that only 2.3 million, of the 69 billion eggs produced annually, are contaminated with salmonella. In other words 0.003% or 1 in every 30,000 eggs. The bulk of these come from battery chicken eggs and chickens kept in unhealthy conditions - only sick chickens lay salmonella contaminated eggs. If only healthy chicken eggs (organic and free range ideally) are consumed, then far less than one in 30,000 eggs are contaminated. Salmonella is a common micro-organism found almost everywhere, and is just as likely, or more likely, to proliferate on cooked food kept in the fridge. Infection is normally mild gastric symptoms, but in rare cases where the immune system is very low such in the elderly who have had much anti-biotic use, and the source is greatly contaminated, death can result. But such a person is highly lightly to contract one of many common micro-organisms and die from that. To give some perspective, in the highly unusual situation of contracting Salmonella, in a healthy person, an infection is nothing to worry about and is easily treated with high quality pro-biotics every half an hour until you feel better.



Method of Consuming Raw Eggs



From day one of starting raw eggs, your immune system becomes stronger and health will improve. We recommend Zell Oxygen as a key supplement for overall health enhancement. Three raw eggs a day (this will take the place of one meal), seems to be the preferred amount taken by people who regularly consume raw eggs. It is sensible to build up the amount of raw eggs consumed gradually. They are best taken by breaking them into a cup and swallowing whole. It can be helpful to cut through the yolk with a knife to make it easier to swallow, If you have a mental problem with swallowing raw eggs, (they are almost tasteless and easy to swallow) blend with a little goats or sheep’s milk or even avocado, but ideally raw eggs should not be blended as the molecular structure is damaged. Inspect the egg, if it has been cracked do not use it, once broken into the cup or blender smell it, if it smells off do not use it.



It is best to keep eggs un-refrigerated, but in a cool place. Refrigeration can destroy the vital amino acids in raw eggs and can also disguise the distinctive smell of an egg that has gone off.



Raw Eggs and Cholesterol



There is no danger from the cholesterol build up since 2/3 of cholesterol in the body is produced by the liver. The amount of cholesterol consumed in the diet does not relate to the amount of cholesterol deposited. Many studies have shown that the cholesterol in eggs does not raise cholesterol level in the body. Furthermore, eggs contain Lecithin, a valuable nutrient that helps the body to process fats and cholesterol.



Eggs contain valuable fat needed to keep us healthy. On the other hand heated or processed fats are converted into Trans-fats - toxic chemicals that harden in the body, around every cell and clog the circulation. Margarine contains an abundance of Trans-fats and is not part of a healthy diet. Do not be afraid of that natural product that has been eaten with no adverse effects for thousands of years, butter. The initial report that cholesterol in foods leads to health problems was released to the press without scientific validation, and has since been proven by hundreds of scientists and studies around the world to be completely false. The only benefits from the initial press release were to the margarine and vegetable oil industries.



Raw Eggs and Biotin Deficiency



Nature created an egg to be a balanced live food – as long as you eat the biotin rich yolk along with the white, there is no risk of a biotin deficiency.



Quote from the book “The Recipe for Living Without Disease” By Aajonus Vonderplanitz



Free range (ideally from healthy chickens, including organically certified, even better are fertile eggs).



“Raw eggs are one of the best compact foods in nature. Eggs are the ultimate, complete fast food. However the protein in eggs is not utilised for cellular reproduction. They are utilised for regeneration and maintenance. The relationship between raw eggs and salmonella poisoning is a myth"

(Reference the great egg panic by Emily Green, LA R times Jan 2000)



Eggs are remarkable for everyone especially the infirm. Three years ago a medical doctor called me on a Thursday evening about her 70 yr old female patient with emphysema. She explained that her patient had been mainly bed-ridden for two years, was on 100% oxygen and respiratory machines. She prognosed that her patient would die that weekend unless I could help. I told her that the only thing I thought might help at that late stage was eggs. I recommended that she get her patient 10 dozen raw eggs, and put them on her bed table. I suggested that she ask her patient to eat one as often as she could and that there was no limit. Very early Monday morning, I received a call from the patient. She told me that she was off the machines, out of bed and feeling stronger that she had in years. She had eaten 66 eggs over the weekend.



If eggs are whipped, beaten or blended without raw milk, raw cream, or coconut cream, many of the enzymes are oxidised and lost.” It is best to break open the egg into a cup or glass and swallow whole. Most people are repelled by this, but with a little courage it is found to be easy. There is almost no taste and the egg, even big ones are easily swallowed. Generally, I find, 3 to 4 eggs taken in the morning are an important part of my well-being programme. The cholesterol in raw eggs is not deposited in the arteries and is an essential nutrient for aiding health and well-being. The white of the egg has been said to interfere with biotin assimilation, but nature knows best by making the egg yolk very rich in biotin. The egg in its entirety is a very balanced food and only supports health and should be taken in its entirety, yolk and white together.

Thanks for the article.Don't trust anything that the government says about Salmonella.Remember-This is the same government that puts experimental drugs into our food supply just to see if we get sick.Anything "natural" like raw eggs that may help us-The government will always find a way to discredit it.How will they make money off of prescriptions/companies if we all knew the truth....mini rant over...:grin:

I'm feeling experimentative now. BrBombshell, when you first started taking this drink, did you start off with a whole egg and did it upset your stomach? Actually, I felt really good when I drank it. I had a real burst of energy and I felt mentally sharp. I know in the 80's my dad drank a few raw eggs every morning when he was bodybuilding and he never had any problems. I've read the same thing.

Girl, get it while you can, i think they are about to run out....:lachen:

Avidin is the protein in eggs that binds biotin. 20 raw eggs per day for several weeks would be necessary to create a biotin deficiency. So, if the eggs are organic-hormone free it is considered safe (in moderation) and used by many athletes to build muscle. Heat and light does denature the protein in eggs.

I'm intrigued, I just bought the book for $4 bucks too. It looks like a good read.:yep: Maybe I could add something like berries to the egg to disguise the taste. I dunno, I will see after I read.:lick:

Yes, put it to good use, the shake will camouflage some of the taste. emphasis on some...that is the worst tasting part, to be sure. Thank God I've learned to gulp stuff down, no tasting allowed...:spinning::nono::drunk:
