Herbals and Supplements

Herbals and SupplementsThere are countless herbal treatments and supplements available.

Many contain Saw Palmetto, which was felt by some to be similar to Finasteride since it also can reduce urinary symptoms in men with enlarged prostate glands. Finasteride reduces the dihydrotestosterone (DHT) level and DHT affects both hair and prostate tissue. Saw Palmetto, however, does not seem to affect DHT but reduces urinary symptoms by relaxing the prostate muscle. Despite many claims, Saw Palmetto has no proven effects on hair or benefits for treatment of hair loss.

Many herbal treatments have actually been found to contain Minoxidil. There are a number of combination treatments that contain Saw Palmetto and Minoxidil and other ingredients.

Herbal medicines are not inherently safer than synthetic medicines. Just as there can be effective and ineffective, safe and risky medications, there can be effective and ineffective, safe and risky herbal medications. If something can produce a positive effect on the body it can also produce a negative effect. Some of our deadliest poisons have natural sources.

There currently is no good evidence that vitamin, nutrient , or mineral supplements help fight hair loss.

There may be some herbal medications and supplements that are effective but there are likely many others that are not effective. Hopefully scientific studies will be conducted and will provide evidence one way or the other.

For now, there are no specific herbal medications or supplements that we can recommend.
