Progressive Health's Advecia - Product Review  Hot

 

Description

Progressive Health’s Advecia is an all-natural supplement specifically formulated to combat hair loss, maximize its regrowth and support hair health. This potent hair loss formula contains a synergistic blend of researched ingredients including saw palmetto, beta sitosterol, green tea extract, arginine, lysine, grape seed extract and proanthocyanidins. Advecia addresses the cause of hair loss internally, to slow and even stop the damaging effects of hair loss.

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. DHT is a potent androgen in hair follicles and is derived directly from the male hormone testosterone. It causes the shrinking of hair follicles and causes them to become inactive. DHT binds to androgen receptors with the help of 5-alpha-reductase.

Advecia contains saw palmetto, beta sisterrol (a phytosterol found in many plants), the amino acid lysine, and green tea extract, which all inhibit 5-alpha-reductase. Blocking 5-alpha-reductase effectively reduces DHT uptake by hair follicles. One double-blind placebo controlled study, published in Alternative and Complementary Medicine, found that 60% of men treated with saw palmetto and beta-sitosterol had significant improvement in male pattern baldness.

Animal studies suggest that green tea extract can stimulate significant hair regrowth. Other studies indicate that the potent antioxidant grape seed extract protects hair follicles from damaging free radicals and promotes new hair growth. The amino acid arginine enhances nitric oxide to support and maintain hair health.
