Nutrafol Hair Growth in Princeton
Proudly serving Mercer County
Though the majority of people that struggle with hair loss are men, it may be devastating for women to deal with the psychological effects of hair loss. For many women, their hair is what makes them feel beautiful and confident. Hair loss can diminish a woman’s self-esteem and lead to problems like depression and anxiety.
Luckily, women (and men that are bothered by hair loss) have many options in hair restoration products. Dr. Jill Hazen is proud to offer a breakthrough product called Nutrafol, which is formulated with special ingredients to nourish the hair naturally and improve the appearance of thinning hair. More than 700 physicians, including Dr. Hazen, have endorsed Nutrafol since its inception.
What Is Nutrafol?
Nutrafol is an oral marine protein supplement (MPS) made from a proprietary blend of shark and mollusk powder. The 100 percent drug-free supplement features medical grade ingredients like biotin and botanicals like keratin, zinc and vitamins A, C and D, which have an established link to improved hair and body health, while leaving out allergens like wheat, gluten and shellfish.
While DNA certainly can play a role in hair loss, other factors like stress, hormonal imbalances and oxidative damage can also contribute to thinning hair. The team behind Nutrafol claims that its botanical nutraceutical ingredients are designed to target multiple causes of hair thinning, including stress and damage from free radicals.
For example, cayenne red pepper fruit extract helps combat the effects of stress on the hair and improve circulation in the scalp. The extract has been shown to reduce levels of specific neurotransmitters that play a significant role in stress-related hair thinning. Or, the antioxidant known as resveratrol defends the hair follicles and scalp against inflammation and oxidative stress caused by free radicals. Also, selenium produces antioxidant enzymes that defend against cell damage in the hair follicles and promote proper thyroid function, which is linked to hair growth.
Women are not the only ones that can benefit from Nutrafol. There are actually two formulations of Nutrafol to suit the different biological needs of both sexes.
Does Nutrafol Work?
Numerous studies have shown that the ingredients in MPS promote hair growth and decrease hair loss. A particularly compelling study published in the medical journal Dermatology Research and Practice showed that using MPS for 90 days increased the number of terminal hairs (long, thick, dark hairs) and reduced hair shedding in people concerned with thinning hair.
How to Take Nutrafol
Nutrafol is available at Dr. Hazen’s Princeton, NJ, plastic surgery practice, and comes in a oral capsule. Four capsules should be taken once a day with a meal including a healthy fat for maximum absorption. Nutrafol should be taken for at least three to six months or longer to maintain the results. Patients that have trouble swallowing capsules can empty them into food or a smoothie.
