The numbers surrounding hair loss in the United States are nothing short of eye-opening — the condition affects 35 million men and 21 million women. If you’re noticing a difference in your hair coverage, the good news is that we can halt and even reverse the hair loss with one simple supplement — Nutrafol®.
The team here at Sky Vein & Aesthetics in Bowling Green, Kentucky, led by Dr. Danny Harrison, prides itself on offering our clients the most effective and evidence-based products and services available. We’ve done our research, and what we’ve found in the area of hair health is exciting.
Here’s a look at hair loss and how Nutrafol can help to restore your beautiful head of hair.
Behind your hair loss
Before we get into how Nutrafol works, let’s take a moment to review what we’re up against. As we mentioned, 56 million men and women in the United States report some degree of hair loss, with men outpacing women by a little less than two to one.
The primary reason why men lose hair (up to 95%) is because of androgenetic alopecia, or male pattern baldness.
Women, too, can develop androgenetic alopecia, which we call female pattern baldness. The condition is often driven by the precipitous drop in hormones that occurs after menopause.
While alopecia is certainly the leading driver of hair loss, environmental and stress can also take their tolls.
Whether you’re already developing bald spots or you’re noticing a considerable loss of hair thickness, the good news is that we can help.
Nutrafol — promoting better hair growth cycles
To understand how the Nutrafol works, first, you need to understand the three different growth cycles of your hair, which include:
- Anagen — the growth phase
- Telogen — the resting phase
- Catogen — the transitional phase
When you experience hair loss, there are things that typically happen — your growth phase becomes shorter, new growth is delayed, and your hair shafts become thinner.
Nutrafol is an oral nutraceutical that contains resources designed to treat all three of these areas by delivering the minerals and nutrients your body needs for optimal hair growth. The primary ingredients of Nutrafol include:
- Saw palmetto
- Marine collagen
- Sensoril® ashwagandha
- Tocotrienol complex
When combined, these ingredients reduce the levels of DHT in your body — a hormone that shrinks your hair follicles. By reducing these levels with Nutrafol, your follicles can continue to produce healthy hair.
A recipe for success
While we can provide you with stories about how effective Nutrafol is among our patients, nothing beats numbers. The manufacturers of Nutrafol conducted a six-month trial among women that garnered the following results:
- 80% saw improved hair growth overall
- 80% reported thicker hair
- 73% reported an improved growth rate
Among men, the results were equally impressive.
