Whether it’s male pattern baldness, or female hair fall, hair loss is an increasing issue with people throughout the world, and it doesn’t come down to genetics alone. Diet, stress levels, and environment can also play a huge role. In regards to physiological reasons, hair loss is most commonly caused by one single factor – the increase of dihydrotestosterone (DHT) in the body. DHT is an androgen hormone that occurs naturally in the human body, and it is one of the main catalysts for men’s development during puberty – it causes facial hair to grow, for example. A bi-product of testosterone, it forms primarily in the prostate gland as well as the testes in men; it also develops in the adrenal glands as well as the hair follicles of both men and women – this is why it can also cause hair loss in women. DHT is all well in good when it’s in balance in the body. But stress levels, diet, environmental sensitivities, and genetics can all contribute to one’s developing higher levels of DHT. In regards to hair loss, it can attach itself to the hair follicles’ receptor cells and basically keep the hair follicles from absorbing precious vitamins, minerals, and proteins that would otherwise nourish them and help them to grow. As time goes by, the hair follicles start to shrink. Hair growth is slowed and stunted. Each time the hair shaft grows back, it becomes thinner, until it doesn’t grow back at all.
Herbalists often recommend Saw Palmetto as a natural remedy for hair loss because it appears to successfully block DHT. Almost resembling a miniature palm tree, the Saw Palmetto plant grows in the southeastern United States and produces berries that were once a staple food for Native Americans. The berries also provided them with a very potent medicine. The healing properties of Saw Palmetto are said to ease urinary tract infections in men as well as stimulate libido and sperm production. These days, it is often used in the treatment of prostatic hyperplasia, or enlargement of the prostate gland, as it seems to have an anti-inflammatory effect. It has also shown good results in treating asthma, bronchitis, and migraines. It is now growing in popularity due to its reputation for stopping hair loss in both men and women. But does it really work? This man says it does, and if you do a little research on the web, you’ll find a lot more people who do. Before trying it yourself, you will want to check which kind of Saw Palmetto will work best for you – some work better for men and others work better for women. You’ll want to ensure you’re taking the proper daily dosage as well. And, above all, you’ll want to consult with your doctor to ensure you’re not taking any medications that an herbal supplement might interfere with. Eliminating stress contributors, as well as eating a nutrient-rich diet, exercising, and getting plenty of sleep each night can also help to stop hair loss.
