What Causes Hair Loss

Here is a healthy head of hair. As we zoom in, you can see a healthy hair follicle. Your hair grows from the dermal papilla at the base of the hair follicle. You can see the capillaries carrying blood to the androgen receptors, which is where the oxygen, nutrients and energy flow into the androgen receptors. The yellow particles represent necessary nutrients and energy, which flow into the androgen receptors, passing through the cells to produce nutrients and energy for your hair to grow.

The major cause of hair loss is DHT (Di-Hydro-Testosterone). You can see the circular androgen receptors and blood vessels flowing, but the DHT is blocking the flow of capillaries and blood supply to the Androgen Receptors. Once DHT binds to the androgen receptors, the receptors are no longer able to receive nutrients and energy, which is essential for healthy hair growth. As the DHT continues to cut off the flow of nutrients and energy, the hair eventually dies and falls out.

To combat DHT, the primary cause of hair loss, wecombine 8 DHT blockers in a proprietary formula to bind harmlessly to the androgen receptor site.As you can see, the blue DHT blockers bind harmlessly to the androgen receptors and stop the green DHT from binding. Over time, as less DHT binds to the androgen receptors, nutrients and energy can flow freely back into the hair follicle.The hair follicle now grows back into its normal growth phase, and your hair has a chance to grow fuller and thicker into vibrant healthy hair.
