Men deserve sexy hair (and beards) too! We’ve created a specialized blend of ingredients for men that combat common barriers to healthy hair - including the infamous male-patterned baldness. It is estimated that by age 50, approximately 50% of men in the US will likely experience hair loss in relation to DHT. Now what is this dreaded DHT exactly? It’s an androgenic hormone that contributes to the biological characteristics of being a man. This includes a deeper voice, increased muscle mass, and body hair - which sounds important, right? HOWEVER, too much of it can actually cause hair follicles to shrink in a process called “miniaturization”, contributing to male pattern hair loss and resulting in thinner, finer hairs. It’s estimated that about 10% of testosterone is converted to DHT, or dihydrotestosterone.
So how do we keep this hormone in check and prevent hair loss? Well, the best therapies aim to naturally balance the body and block testosterone from converting to DHT. We’ve created a key complex that does just that with potent extracts of Green tea, Turmeric, Resveratrol, and Aloe vera.
Green tea is rich in the antioxidants known as catechins, directly aiding the reduction of harmful DHT. It does so by blocking 5-alpha-reductase, the enzyme responsible for the conversion of testosterone to DHT (Zhou, Jin-Rong, et al, 2003).
Turmeric has been found to reduce DHT through the modulation of cells known as “AKR 1C2” (Ide et al, 2018).
Resveratrol has been shown to reduce circulating androgen precursors (Jang, Yin-Gi, et al, 2019), while having a potent antioxidant effect in protection against hair loss.
Aloe Vera contains a specialized proteolytic enzyme that stimulates hair follicle growth and assists in the repair of damaged cells in your scalp.
We’ve also included the powerful herb, Japanese Knotweed, aka “polygonum cuspidatum.” It’s hailed for it’s immune-modulating benefits and is extremely rich in antioxidants like resveratrol, furthering aiding both hair and beard growth.
We combine all of these benefits in one easy-to-swallow vegetarian capsule per day to give your hair (or beard) the full thickness it deserves. As always, our formula is 100% gluten-free, drug-free, and proudly made in the USA.
