I’ve finished my first bottle of Toji: Pure Density (time flies huh) so it’s time for my check-in.
I followed the directions to the letter, taking 2 tablets in the morning (with food) and 2 in the evening (with food). Regarding the directions for these vitamins, I sent the co-founder this question:
The recommended usage is to take 2 tablets in the morning and 2 at night. Is this recommended so that there is a constant level of nutrients and vitamins in the body for optimum results?
He confirmed it was:
The body can only process a certain amount of nutrients in an hour and excretes the rest that can’t be processed. We wanted to split the recommended dosage between morning and night so that the ingredients could be absorbed throughout the day.
Toji recommends taking this supplement for a minimum of three months before noticing any results so I won’t be sharing tales a growth spurt in month one but I still wanted to post an update because a few of you JGAers have e-mailed me about any side-effects I’ve experienced (e.g. increase in acne, upset stomach). Thankfully I didn’t experience any side-effects (and hope it stays like that!). No upset stomach, nausea, dizziness, no random aches. I get frequent headaches but thankfully I tracked my number of headaches the month before starting Toji and the during the first month. The frequency of my headaches remained the same so Toji hasn’t had an effect on my headaches.
My biggest worry was an increase in acne, but no issues there. I got one pimple but it was during my monthly cycle and I always get a few breakouts during that week. I’ve kept my diet and eating habits the same, my workout routine and skin care routine were kept the same, and I continued to take my woman’s multi vitamin, so I’d have noticed any weird, out of the blue symptoms.
I have to admit that a comment posted by one of our readers on my original post about talking these supplements for the next six months scared the bejeezus out of me. She shared that she took Toji: Pure Density for one month and a large portion of hair fell out. Well I was nearing my one month mark when she posted so I started checking my nearly daily for increased shedding (and praying that when day 30 hit my hair didn’t decided to take a trip to Shed City!). I went back and compared pictures of my shed hair that I took before I started taking Toji to pictures I took while on Toji and didn’t see a difference. The average number of shed hairs I removed when I moisturize and seal did not change either. Whew! So no shedding issues for me.
No increase in shedding and no side effects = a good first month to me. But remember I, by no means, am the blueprint. We have to keep in mind that everyone is different and our bodies will not react to things the same way.
I’ll do my next updates at month 3 and month 6 so I can report any big changes.
