Physician’s Series Hair Formula is a comprehensive multi-nutrient formula containing unique combination of vitamins, minerals, and special antioxidants is essential in maintaining healthy hair follicles and cells.
Causes of Hair Loss
Hair shedding is part of a normal hair-growth cycle. Throughout a normal growth cycle, loss of 50 to 150 hairs daily is not a cause of alarm.1,2 Noticeable thinning indicates significant hair loss or balding. Though hair loss and balding are not life-threatening, it can cause great emotional distress.
Hair loss results from aging, genetic predisposition, thyroid imbalance, eating disorders, illness, hormonal effects of birth control pills, pregnancy, menopause, and certain medications.3-6 The most common cause of hair loss among both sexes is a hereditary condition known as androgenetic alopecia (AGA).7 Balding runs in families.
Hair loss caused by AGA in men and women is characterized by a gradual shrinking of hair follicies which shortens the life cycle of hair.1,7 As the growth cycle phase progressively shortens, newly grown hair is shorter and thinner until new hair growth eventually ceases entirely.1
AGA is attributed to an overabundance of dihydrotestosterone (DHT). Excessive DHT stimulates a localized immune reaction, which, in turn generate an inflammatory response that damages hair follicles, resulting in hair loss.4,7,8

Saw Palmetto (Serenoa repens) is a palm-like plant that is native to North America. Physician’s Series Hair Formula offers an extract combined with beta-sitosterol to reduce DHT uptake by follicles and to inhibit 5-alpha reductase (the enzyme that converts testosterone to harmful DHT), thereby helping to effectively manage hair loss, especially androgenetic alopecia (AGA).12-14
Last but not least, the Tocotrienols & Tocopherols in this formula are pivotal in addressing the various physiological mechanisms that lead to thinning hair. Supplementing with bio-enhanced tocotrienol complex supports youthful thickness and growth.15
