LA Nutrition’s Alphatase Advanced Hair Formula for Men and Women promotes new hair growth by delivering a special combination of vitamins and minerals, along with the Alphatase Proprietary Blend containing Saw Palmetto and Green Tea, which are both strong DHT inhibitors. When levels of dihydrotestosterone (DHT) in the scalp become too high, hair loss ensues. DHT binds to the hair follicles, reducing nutrients extracted from the blood. Follicles shrink, hair becomes thinner, and then hair disappears completely without intervention. Saw Palmetto (a palm plant native to North America) can block the 5-alpha-reductase enzyme, which causes testosterone to convert into DHT, and is believed to prevent and reverse hair loss. Green tea, an extremely potent antioxidant, also reduces DHT and is believed to stop hair loss and facilitate the re-growth and health of hair. Saw palmetto and green tea with other active ingredients, such as Biotin, which is essential for hair growth, come together in LA Nutrition’s Alphatase Hair Formula to promote new hair growth for both men and women.
