CAUSES OF HAIR
LOSS IN WOMEN
Women’s hair loss occurs in different patterns than men’s, and therefore must be treated in a different manner.
COMMON CAUSES OF HAIR LOSS IN MEN
Hair thinning, morning after morning, until, finally, the hair line has markedly receded: this is the everyday experience of a substantial percentage of the male population. There are many causes of hair loss in men, including disease, nutritional deficiency, hormone imbalance, and stress. However, the most common cause is adrogenetic alopecia.
Androgenetic alopecia is characterised by the reduced diameter of hair in the anagen phase, followed by the transformation of a large quantity of hair into miniature hair.
Alopecia affects 20% of men as of age 20 years and increases by 10% per decade.
In the course of androgenetic alopecia, hair follicles exhibit increased activity of the enzyme 5-alpha-reductase II and a higher level of 5-alpha-dihydrotestosterone ( 5-alpha-DHT). DHT causes a shortened anagen phase, miniaturization of the hair follice and increased hair loss.
Hair follicles that are sensitive to DHT begin to shortening the lifetime of each hair follicle affected. Eventually, these affected follicles stop producing strong, thick hair.
Therefore, with proper intervention this process can be slowed or even stopped if caught early enough.
The patented active ingredients in Nutrigrow, which against placebo has been scientifically proven to prevent hair loss, reduces the production of DHT. By blocking the activity of the 5-alpha-reductase enzymes, and lowering the concentration of DHT in the hair follicle, Nutrigrow protects hair follicles and by stimulating them to enter the growth phase, helps them to grow naturally.
