Pygeum Africanum and Saw Palmetto
The bark of the Pygeum Africanum tree is commonly used in combination with Saw Palmetto to prevent hair loss. Both are thought to inhibit the enzyme 5-alpha-reductase. This is an enzyme that converts testosterone into DHT (Dihydrotestosterone), a hormone that has been found to damage hair follicles. In men, DHT is the primary contributing factor to pattern baldness, and in women, DHT is one of several possible causes of hair-loss.
Ginko biloba has been found to increase circulation and help with hair growth. It does this by increasing blood flow to the peripheral parts of the body, and micro-capillaries. By improving circulation to these capillaries, the body is able to more-effectively deliver oxygen and nutrients to the scalp, thus promoting hair growth.
Grape Seed Extract
Grape seed extract is a very potent supplement that acts as an antiallergenic, antihistamine, anti-inflammatory, and antioxidant. Like Pygeum Africanum and Saw Palmetto, Grape Seed extract has also been found to inhibit DHT production, and thus prevent hair follicle damage.
Methylsulfonylmethane is an organic suphur compound that occurs naturally in some plants and foods. It is sold as a dietary supplement, and is commonly used to treat a variety of ailments. MSM has been found to be beneficial in treating osteoarthritis, and it is thought to possibly be helpful in treating other conditions including allergies, snoring, asthma, and back pain-although these uses need more clinical research to substantiate MSM’s effectiveness. Most recently, MSM has become a popular supplement for promoting fast, healthy hair growth.
Although more studies are definitely needed in order to substantiate the effectiveness of these supplements with regards to hair-growth, many people have tried them and have had satisfying results. I encourage you to do your own research, and definitely consult with your physician before you take any dietary supplements.
