Nutrafol: Natural Hair Supplements

Maintaining Healthy Hair – Thickness and Growth

The formula found in Nutrafol Hair Supplements are made to address existing hair loss and thinning. It also serves to prevent future hair loss and acts as an anti-aging regimen to maintain healthy hair with growth and thickness. Nutrafol can also be used as a solo regimen or combined with other treatments. 

Nutrafol is available in a total of three formulas:

  • Nutrafol for Women
  • Women’s Balance
  • Nutrafol for Men

Nutrafol for Women and Women’s Balance differ in formula. Women’s Balance is recommended for women in menopause (before, during, or after) or for women who deal with high levels of testosterone. 

When it comes to thinning hair, it’s known to have multiple root causes. In recent studies, research has shown that there can be several underlying factors that can affect overall health that impacts hair growth. The problem is, everyone’s combination of [root] causes are all different making it hard to diagnose from the surface. Nutrafol helps to target key factors that affect the growth phases of the hair that delay new growth

Some of the key factors that affect hair growth are: 

Hormones – DHT sensitivity can be caused by medications, poor diet, genetics, stress, and toxins

Stress – Emotional stress, either short term or long term physical or emotional stress can affect hair growth and quality of hair growth. 

Environment –  this can be the products used, foods that are eaten or your surroundings

Metabolism – this can be affected by a high glycemic diet, thyroid issues, and inflammation

Nutrition – nutrient deficiencies that result from compromised gut microbiome and poor diet can cause hair loss

It has been shown to decrease levels of the neurotransmitter Substance P, which plays a major role in stress-related hair thinning. The 2-percent capsaicin concentration in our formula activates the release of calcitonin gene-related peptide (CRGP), a compound demonstrated to stimulate cellular energy and boost protein production in follicles, promoting healthier, stronger hair.” – Nutrafol 
  • Horsetail Herb Extract – “The herb horsetail (Equisetum arvense) contains high levels of silica (or silicon dioxide), one of the planet’s most common and most important elements. Standardized to 7-percent silica, it contains silicic acid, which is shown to increase the tensile strength and thickness of hair and reduce brittleness.” – Nutrafol

  • L-Cysteine Hydrochloride – “L-Cysteine is an amino acid available in high-protein foods. It contains sulfur, which is useful for metabolic processes in the body including hair growth. It provides potent antioxidant protection to the follicle and increases hair-shaft diameter, facilitating new growth and giving hair a fuller, thicker appearance.” – Nutrafol

Lysine has also shown the potential to work with methionine, a rich source of the mineral sulfur and the structural support of the follicle.” – Nutrafol

It’s also a rich source of antioxidants and amino acids.” – Nutrafol

A deficiency can take its toll on hair health, leading to weakness and loss. The vitamin D component in Nutrafol helps reduce stress-related damage and contributes significantly to follicles that are rich in vitamin D receptors.” – Nutrafol
