Have you ever wondered if saw palmetto could really works to stop loss of hair?

According to MENSCRIPT which is an online health clinic that specializes in providing online hair loss treatment throughout the United Kingdom and the Netherlands the answer is no.

The health clinic online conducted an investigation into the research of saw palmetto and loss of hair, and found that the majority studies cited by their manufacturers for “proof” for their efficacy is believed to have been financial supported by the business.

They found that despite saw palmetto being touted on the internet to be an effective remedy against hair loss it does not significantly reduce the amount of DHT (dihydrotestosterone). A hormone believed as the main cause of male hair loss.

They discovered for instance for example that DHT inhibition that is commonly discussed is very low and does not have any clinical value in stopping the loss of hair. Finasteride is for instance, 18.000 times more powerful when it comes to blocking enzyme type II when compared with Saw Palmetto.

The reality that Saw Palmetto is still regarded as a potent DHT blocker in the present day appears to be mostly because of the public relations department behind Permixon. Permixon brand. The brand is that is owned by Pierre Fabre Laboratories; a pharmaceutical company that released two studies in the years 1984 and 1996 which were done by their own researchers and their research center which is the Centre de Recherches Pierre Fabre

A lab study where cells were exposed very high doses of saw palmetto which may have destroyed the cellular function. According to MENSCRIPT, it appears that the claims of hair loss are bogus and mostly used to stimulate sales by the business behind it.
