Hair Loss

 

Hair loss affects nearly 40% of all men and women in their respective lifetimes.

Hair loss can range from mild thinning to complete baldness. When the loss of hair is constant, it can negate personal coping strategies for self-acceptance. Despite what many experts say, in our appearance-laden culture, your personal value or self-worth is (sadly) often defined by your outer appearance.

In fact, it's been reported that:

  • 93% of men and women think about hair loss
  • 88% of these persons feel frustrated and helpless about their condition

However, this does not mean that individuals should let intimidation and helplessness keep them from taking steps to prevent future hair loss.

Instead, hair loss sufferers should address the cause through the approaches of modern medicine and nutritional supplementation.

 

 

WHAT Can Help?

 
The following publications have reported how supplements (like the supplements in our DHT Blocker: Advecia) can help with hair loss:
Beta-sitosterol (50 mg two times per day) and saw palmetto (200 mg two times per day) appear to help hair growth in men with male pattern hair loss. In one study, men who took this combination had greater hair growth than men who took a placebo.
Symptoms of arginine deficiency include poor wound healing, hair loss, skin rash, constipation, and fatty liver. [Full Article]
DHT (which contributes to hair loss) is produced from testosterone by enzyme 5-alpha-reductase. Like most enzymes, it can be inhibited. [Full Article]
Green Tea (Camellia Sinensis): Adversely affects type I 5-alpha-reductase. [Full Article]

 

 

WHO Experiences Hair Loss?

 
Causes of Hair Loss:

The top influences for hair loss are genetic in nature.

For instance, male pattern baldness (androgenetic alopecia) is thought to result from such genetic predisposition. Scientists are still trying to discover the exact mechanisms, or genetic blueprints, that influence hair loss as a whole; but most agree that hair loss is polygenic or is caused by several genes rather than one specific genome.

In addition, the enzyme 5-alpha-reductase is thought to be another causative agent concerning hereditary hair loss. The inhibition of specific growth factors (e.g. TGF-beta2) and dihydrotestosterone (DHT), a potent androgen, has also been effective in numerous clinical studies aimed at treating hair loss.

However, genetic susceptibility, such as hair follicle sensitivity, hormones, and androgens, are still thought to be the main factors influencing permanent hair loss in both sexes.

Types of Hair Loss

The most common form of hair loss is Androgenic Alopecia or male pattern baldness. Other types of hair loss include:

  • Traumatic Alopecia - results from hair being torn out of the scalp;
  • Drug-induced Alopecia - hair loss caused by the administration of a given medication;
  • Alopecia Areata - or patchy hair loss, is thought to occur from an immunological condition and is usually reversible.
Are You at Risk?

It has been clearly established that both parents contribute to a child's risk of developing hair loss.

Asian men are less likely than Caucasians to develop baldness. On average, Asian men develop balding patterns nearly a decade later than whites.

African-Americans are approximately 4 times less likely to suffer from abnormal hair loss than persons of other descent.

 

 

HOW Do I Slow Down Hair Loss?

 

 

Conventional Treatments:

A doctor will usually diagnose your hair loss on the basis of physical examination and your medical history.

This entails evaluating what medications you are currently taking, dietary and nutritional status, and hairdressing/grooming habits. Blood tests and a biopsy of hair is used by specialists to determine the integrity of a given hair follicle.

This evaluation is used to establish the underlying cause of the hair thinning/balding, and to decide what treatment options will prove most effective. In addition, hair samples can also detect conditions within the scalp.

 

Advecia:

Both diet and nutritional supplementation can provide a positive influence on hair growth and hair health, as deficiencies of specific nutrients can actually promote a loss of hair.

There is no doubt that an adequate supplement program is advantageous for hair health. However, Advecia's synergistic blend takes nutritional application one step further, by including specific nutrients that are not easily obtained from dietary sources alone.

Here are just a few of the ingredients in Advecia that help slow hair loss: 

Saw Palmetto Berries

Functions as a 5-alpha-reductase inhibitor, making it useful in male pattern hair loss.

In a double-blind, placebo-controlled study, 60% of men treated with a lipo stearolic extract of Saw palmetto and beta-sitosterol were rated as improved on the final visit.

Green Tea Extract

Extracts of green tea contain polyphenols that influence hair loss.

A specific component EGCG (epigallocatechin gallate) is a potent inhibitor of 5-alpha reductase.

In animal studies of spontaneous hair loss, green tea extract has demonstrated the ability to produce significant hair regrowth when compared to control.

Grape Seed Extract

Components found in grape seed extract may be useful in treating hair loss.

Toxicology studies in animals show that grape seed extract is a safe product, not affecting blood cells or producing adverse effects (6).

Frequently Asked Questions

 

I think I'm beginning to lose my hair, what can I do?

  • Top hair experts recommend consulting with a physician if you believe you are, or are at a greater risk for, losing hair. Treating hair loss at its onset gives you a better chance of saving existing hair. Hair loss commonly begins after puberty but can peak at different times depending on the individual. It is estimated that by the age of fifty, 50% of men will have noticeably thinning hair and some form of male pattern baldness. Again, the extent of affliction varies from person to person. Certain tests can be performed to measure the ratios of male hormones (i.e. androgens) and 5-alpha-reductase. There is a much higher level of these agents in persons with an advanced potential for developing hair loss. Nutritional supplementation, like Advecia, has also proven very helpful in a large number of at-risk individuals.

I've always heard that my mother's father or grandfather is to blame for my hair loss. Is this true?

  • NO. This is a common myth. It started in 1916 as a result of a published paper by Dorothy Osborne, stating that pattern baldness was inherited by one side of the family, namely your mother's side. This myth is ongoing because it has been propagated in dermatologic literature for many years. So who ultimately contributed to your hair loss? The contribution of your disorder was most likely defined by both of your parents. However, the genetic aspect of hair loss is much more complicated. Science remains unclear regarding the exact mode of inheritance. A number of models have been proposed, but none has yet to be established as an infallible answer.

Do certain shampoos, hairstyles, and other hair products cause hair loss?

  • An allergic reaction, constant pulling of hair for a particular hairstyle, or adverse reaction to hair products, have all been documented as influential causes for hair loss. In fact, your physician may ask what hairstyling techniques and products you are using as part of a normal hair loss assessment. Caustic hair dyes, straighteners, and other chemically-rich products can cause inflammation of the scalp, which many times result in either the breaking of hair strands or hair loss.

Is hair loss in women different from men?

  • Women tend to lose hair at a much slower rate, but like men, their hair loss also has an inherited basis too. As well, are unlikely to have large bald spots. Women's frontal hairline sticks around as hair loss progresses. The thinning of women's hair, unlike men, also tends to be distributed evenly throughout the scalp. In addition, women are also able to disguise hair loss because of hair length and the styles in which they wear their hair. 

How does Advecia work?

  • Our formula works by inhibiting the enzyme 5-alpha-reeducates which limits the production of DHT which is a more effective approach to reducing hair loss. We also have ingredients that increase nitric oxide production which may help re-grow new hair.
