TRX2 is a dietary supplement marketed for individuals with hair loss. It is manufactured and sold by Oxford BioLabs in the United Kingdom, marketed in 2011. The company was founded by former scientists of the University of Oxford in 2008.
Similar to minoxidil,[dubious ] TRX2 works through small proteins called potassium channels. The product is a dietary supplement, not a drug, and hence is not approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
