saw palmetto for hair loss: nothing special

Have you ever thought that saw palmetto really does work to prevent hair loss? Based on MENSCRIPT that is an internet-based health center that is specialized in offering online treatment for hair loss throughout Europe, the United Kingdom and the Netherlands the answer is not.

The health clinic online carried out an investigation of the research of saw palmetto and the loss of hair. It discovered that the majority of studies that their makers cite as “proof” for their efficacy is believed to be funded by the business.

They found that despite saw palmetto being touted on the internet to be an effective remedy against hair loss it does not significantly reduce the amount of DHT (dihydrotestosterone). A hormone that is believed to be the most important cause for the loss of male hair.

They found for instance that DHT inhibition that is frequently discussed is small and has not any scientific value in stopping the loss hair. Finasteride for instance is 18.000 times more potent in blocking enzyme type II in comparison to Saw Palmetto.

The fact is that Saw Palmetto is still regarded as an effective DHT blocker to this time is due to the public relations department of Permixon. Permixon brand. The brand is is controlled by Pierre Fabre Laboratories; a pharmaceutical company that has released two studies in 1984 and 1996, which were conducted by their own researchers as well as their research center that is called the Centre de Recherches Pierre Fabre

A laboratory study in which cells were exposed to very high amounts of saw palmetto, which could be destroying the cellular function. According to MENSCRIPT It appears that claims about hair loss are untrue and are typically used to increase sales by the company that is behind it.
