The Best Hair Loss Vitamins For Men and Women
I wanted to introduce my HAIRLICIOUSLY Hair Growth supplement. A lot of you have been asking me what types of vitamins and supplements that I have been taking for the last 3 years to treat hair loss, so I was finally able to jam pack most of the ingredients into a single capsule.
There’s only so much you can put in 1 capsule, so after working with a supplement specialist, I managed to find the best ingredients and vitamins known to combat hair loss, block DHT and contribute to healthy hair follicles. I’ll get this right out from the beginning. Supplements and vitamins are NOT going to cure hair loss. It’s not going to make you go from a NW7 to a NW0. It’s not going to be a better replacement to finasteride or dutasteride. With that said, the ingredients are all NATURAL and are scientifically back-up with ingredients and vitamins that are known to promote healthy hair growth, block DHT, and increase blood circulation. Certain ingredients in the supplement, such as saw palmetto, zinc, pygeum africanum, green tea and ginkgo are known to be DHT inhibitors, and while they’re not as potent as finasteride or dutasteride, they are natural alternatives that you can take to fight against hair loss and I would highly recommend taking these if you are noticing or experiencing hair loss so that you can treat it from all angles. Let’s go ahead and talk about some of the main ingredients in this supplement that is known to promote healthy hair growth as well as some of the DHT blockers and why you should be taking hair growth supplements!
First off, the supplement is loaded with vitamins A, B, C, and E – These vitamins help produce sebum to moisturize the scalp and helps keep hair healthy. IT also contains powerful antioxidants that protect against the oxidative stress from free radicals and creates collagen production.
Niacinamide – Niacinamide has been scientifically proven to improve blood circulation, reduce scalp inflammation, induce keratin production and repair DNA cells – all which have positive effects on hair growth. Blood circulation plays a huge role in scalp hair follicles as they carry nutrients and so niacinamide is important since studies show that on average, subcutaneous blood flow was over 2.5 times lower in men with MPB.
Folic Acid - Folic acid plays a vital role in cell growth and tissues and is required for the division and regeneration of cells that are responsible for hair growth. It works synergistically with other vitamins in the overall synthesis of proteins, and this is important since hair is composed entirely of protein. Folic acid is also used by many people to speed up hair growth as well, in addition to biotin, and may be beneficial for those who have just undergone a hair transplant and want to speed up hair growth.
Biotin – This supplement is also loaded with biotin which is one of several vitamins that plays a positive role in the growth of healthier thicker hair. Biotin won’t have any effect on those with male pattern baldness but it does contribute to promoting health hair growth and also speeds up the growth and thickness of hair follicles, so it’s a no brainer to add it to your arsenal.
Pantothenic Acid - This vitamin helps prevent hairs from graying and can restore their natural color. I remember a guy in high school who had gray hair and had I known this earlier, I would’ve recommended him panthothenic acid. This vitamin also helps strengthen hair roots and the shaft, relives scalp inflammation and regenerates hair follicle cells.
Inositol and Choline - These two combinations form phospholipids that promote hair growth. In addition, studies show that deficiencies in these vitamins lead to hair loss, and then the vitamins were re-introduced back into the diet, hair growth was restored.
PABA - PABA is para-amino-benzoic acid and has been found to stimulate hair growth, reduce hair fall and decrease greying of hair.
MSM - A sulfur chemical compound known for its anti-inflammatory properties and is known to form bonds essential to strengthening hair and influencing hair growth.
Ginkgo biloba - Modern studies show that it is both a vasodilator and an antioxidant and known to widen the blood vessels that supply hair follicles with nutrients, thereby improving the follicles performance. A study that was documented in the Journal of Clinical Investigation showed that it increased a total volume of hair by 70%. In addition, Japanese researchers who treated 50 human test subjects with Ginkgo showed a reduction in hair loss.
Saw Palmetto – You guys are familiar with saw palmetto. Saw Palmetto is a 100% natural herbal supplement that is known to inhibit DHT. It’s not as potent as finasteride since finasteride works in about 70% of users and only about 40%, but it does play a role in hair growth and in blocking DHT.
Pygeum africanum – This is an African mountain tree whose bark was known to treat prostate conditions, and as we know, there is a correlation between hair loss and prostate issues. This is why finasteride is used to treat not only hair loss but also for enlarged prostates. Studies indicate that pygeum africanum is even more effective when combined with saw palmetto and is known to inhibit DHT with minimal side effects.
Green Tea – Green tea is known to improve circulation of hormones and improves blood flow and is a great antioxidant known to inhibit DHT.
Grape seed extract - Known to increase blood flow and is loaded with antioxidants and acts as an antibacterial.
L-Cysteine - Major study confirms that L-Cysteine can reverse hair loss, especially in women.
