Understanding Hair Loss

Hair loss is devastating. Though, few of us know why we lose our hair.

Most believe hair loss is caused by “genetics” and there is nothing we can do about it, this is not true!

What causes most hair loss is a hormone called Dihydrotestosterone (DHT).

As we age, everyone become more sensitive to this hormone and experiences hair loss and thinning. What is passed on to you from your ancestors is your sensitivity to DHT.

Genetics can’t be stopped but the good news is your sensitivity to DHT can be stopped!

DHT attacks our hair follicles causing the hair growth cycles to shorten and causing our hair to miniaturize. DHT also prevents absorption of nutrients into the hair follicles preventing proper growth.


How do we lower and stop our sensitivity to DHT?

There are medications on the market, however, they come with side effects which are worse than suffering hair loss. We do not suggest these approaches. The most common natural remedies on the market that lower DHT sensitivity, such as, Saw Palmetto and He Shou Wu (Fo Ti) also come with side effects. Due to the anti-sex hormone effects of saw palmetto, sexual dysfunction is a common side effect. Fatigue and headaches may also occur. Saw palmetto may interact with drugs that affect sex hormones or have anti-inflammatory actions.

He Shou Wu (Fo Ti) is a Chinese herb found in most natural hair growth supplements may cause potentially life threating liver damage. Some hair growth products using this herb are now placing warnings on their labels regarding the use of He Shou Wu (Fo Ti). Again, we would not suggest these approaches for we want to do no harm.

The best natural supplement for lowering and stopping sensitivity to DHT is Beta Sitosterol.

Beta Sitosterol is a safe and natural plant and vegetable derived phytosterol and a much better DHT blocker than the above mentioned herbs.

Follicle Fuel is the only hair growth product on the market using Non GMO Bet Sitosterol.

So now we know the first step to preventing hair loss, the second step we need to understand is how to make our hair grow fuller and thicker.

The second step is to supply our hair with the critical micro nutrients and vitamins needed for proper growth and rejuvenation.
