Alopecia is a hair loss disease that affects men and women, and is generally caused by various factors such as:
Although not damaging to physical health, alopecia can have severe effects on quality of life and emotional health through its impact on confidence and self-esteem.
Androgenetic alopecia (AGA) is the most common type of progressive hair loss and is caused by a combination of genetic and hormonal factors. It affects about 50% of men over the age of 50, and about 50% of women over the age of 65. The main hormone responsible for androgenetic alopecia in genetically susceptible individuals is DHT (Dihydrotestosterone). DHT reduces the anagen phase of the follicle cycles, shortening the hair life cycle, and gradually miniaturising the follicles.
DHT inhibits blood flow to the scalp, decreasing the supplying of nutrients and oxygen to the follicles, and hair follicles that are sensitive to DHT produce progressively finer, shorter and lighter hairs until eventually the follicles shrink completely and stop producing hair.
md:ceuticals launched a pre-set formula, md:complex Hair-Revit, containing the key amino acids, vitamins and minerals necessary to support hair growth and protection, strengthening the follicles and minimizing hair loss and thinning.
md:complex Hair-Revit increases the blood supply to the hair follicles, reinforces hair structure and density, revitalizes and nourishes the scalp preventing seborrhoeic dermatitis, prevents hair greying and stimulates healthy hair growth with better texture, quality and natural glow.
md:complex Hair-Revit unique formulation counteracts all factors involved in the appearance of hair thinning and loss:
Glutathione: the body’s own master antioxidant and only intracellular antioxidant and detoxifier. Acting inside the cells and playing and important role in cellular protection while boosting the immune system, it protects the scalp and follicle mitochondria from oxidative stress. Low glutathione increases the protein Kinase C which accelerates the loss of hair follicles.
Amino acids: Cysteine, Arginine, Methionine, and Taurine support the production of keratin and collagen; essential components to rebuild and repair hair tissue, promote hair growth and prevent hair loss, guaranteeing an amazing tensile strength. They strengthen the immune system, help to minimise disease-related hair loss and can help to shield the hair from the damaging effects of hair colouring and bleaching. They are precursors to important vasodilators, vital for improving capillary blood circulation and nutrient supply to the hair follicles. Minimising oxidative stress, they inhibit the chain reaction leading to weak hair follicle shafts and stunted follicle development, helping the hair to recover its natural thickness. Also boost the production of the powerful antioxidant Glutathione.
Vitamins: Dexpanthenol (Vit. B5), Pyridoxine (Vit. B6), Biotine (Vit. B7), Thiamine (Vit. B1), Riboflavin (Vit. B2). Indispensable for healthy hair growth, they revitalize hair follicles and promote good blood circulation and the delivery of vital nourishment. Vitamins stimulate cell division and accelerate cell repair, restoring hair strength, hydration and natural glow and have anti-seborrhoeic properties to help to combat hair loss.
Zinc: studies show that Zinc in combination with Pyridoxine is a powerful enzyme inhibitor of 5 alpha-reductase activity, blocking production of DHT, the main hormone responsible for androgenetic alopecia. Essential trace element involved in the building of keratin and collagen, protecting hair structure.
Gingko Biloba and Centella Asiatica Extract: promote hair growth by stimulating blood microcirculation in the scalp, irrigating and oxygenating the follicles.
