Avacor - Product Review
Avacor is a hair care system of oral supplements and topically applied products formulated to help slow the effects of hair loss in men. Avacor products include Avacor Physicians Formulation, Avacor All Natural Nutricap, Scalp Detoxifying Shampoo, Thickening Shampoo and Volumizing Conditioner. Avacor topical products feature 5% Minoxidil to improve hair growth in male or female pattern baldness. Minoxidil, also known as RogaineŽ, is an FDA-approved medication for hair loss treatment.
Male or female pattern baldness, known as androgenic alopecia (AGA), is a common form of hair loss in men and women. Minoxidil is a vasodilator drug that may also slow hair loss and improve hair growth in male or female pattern baldness. However, it is not known how Minoxidil stimulates scalp hair regrowth.
One of the causes of hair loss is believed to be due to the damaging effects of DHT (dihydrotestosterone) and the enzyme 5-alpha-reductase. Avacor All Natural Nutricap contains saw palmetto to block 5-alpha-reductase and stop the production of DHT. Gingko biloba increases scalp circulation and nutrient supply to the hair roots and follicles. The antioxidants resveratrol and bilberry protect hair follicles from damaging free radicals and promotes new hair growth.
Avacor is available over the counter without prescription to treat male pattern baldness. Avacor offers a money-back guarantee after 60 days for unused product.
