Hair Genesis - Product Review
Hair Genesis is a botanically-derived hair care system of oral and topically applied products formulated to help slow the effects of hair loss. Hair Genesis products including oral softgels, topical activator serum and hair revitalizing shampoo are used to treat and enhance the appearance of fine or thinning hair in men and women. The oral softgels contain saw palmetto berry extract, beta-sitosterol (a plant phytosterol)l, macadamia nut oil, borage oil, evening primrose oil (gamma linolenic acid), pygeum aftricanum, genestein (soy isoflavones), Japanese green tree extract and extra virgin olive oil.
Male or female pattern baldness, known as androgenetic alopecia (AGA), is a common form of hair loss in men and women. Male pattern baldness is caused by an overproduction of the androgenic hormone, dihydrotestosterone (DHT). DHT is a potent form of testosterone known to stimulate prostate growth and scalp hair loss. An enzyme produced in the prostate, adrenal glands and scalp, called 5-alpha-reductase metabolizes the male hormone testosterone into DHT.
Hair Genesis products contain botanically-based nutrients such as saw palmetto, that block the damaging effects of 5-alpha-reductase and stop the production of DHT. In a placebo-controlled, double-blind study published in The Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine, male subjects with mild to moderate AGA were administered Hair Genesis Soft Gels, Findings revealed that 60 percent of the participants experienced improvement in hair loss.
"This study establishes the effectiveness of naturally occurring 5-alpha-reductase inhibitors against AGA for the first time, and justifies the expansion to larger trials," the study authors conclude.
Hair Genesis has conducted clinical studies of their products on the scalp and thinning hair.
Hair Genesis has the following benefits:
