Causes of Hair Loss (Hair Loss Supplements)

Causes of Hair Loss

Hair loss is one of the body changes that most people fear of. Just like menopause, hair loss can easily divulge a person's age. But unlike menopause, which can be kept from everyone but yourself, hair loss can be detected or seen by almost everybody. At about the age of 35, the effect of hair loss can already be seen in men -- either their hair line recedes or a "dome" begins to appear at the back of their hair; some even experience both. In Profollica.com, it is stated that 65% of all men are suffering from the effects of hair loss and a majority of them have Male Pattern Baldness. Women, on the other hand, are affected by hair loss in a different way. Starting at the age of 30, their hair gradually thins out. By the age of 50 or shortly after their menopausal stage, the scalp becomes more noticeable because of lessened hair strands all over the head.

Different factors may cause hair loss. Aging and genetics are only a few. But in men, basically, it is caused by dehydrotestosterone hormone, or DHT. This hormone's chief purpose is to develop the traits of men such as deep voice, larger muscles, and mustache. However, it also develops Male Pattern Baldness. What this hormone does is it accumulates and develops in the DHT receptors found around the follicles of hair. As the hormone has established itself, it will eventually kill the hair as well as the follicle, making it hopeless for hair to grow back. According to Profollica.com, DHT production in women is as not as high as in men, hence, women do not suffer from the same radical hair loss as men do.

DHT increases as men age, killing more and more of the hair follicles. Excess production of DHT can lead to baldness. Although every person has this hormone, there are some who only produce enough amount of DHT. Fortunately, they are the ones not suffering from extreme hair loss.
Other factors for hair loss in both men and women are:

1. Disease or illness - Losing hair could be a sign of being unhealthy. Illnesses such as systemic lupus erythematosis and syphilis, or thyroid disorder show hair loss as a symptom. Chronic kidney dysfunction may also cause lots of hair to fall as it makes them unhealthy, dry, and breakable.

2. Side effects of medications - Drugs that contain lithium, beta-blockers, warfarin, heparin, amphetamines, and levodopa (Atamet, Larodopa, Sinemet) can cause numerous hair to fall off. In addition, some medications being used in treating cancer like doxorubicin can cause rapid but temporary hair loss.

3. Hormones - Different kinds of hormones compromise the human system and an imbalanced production of those could affect the normal growth of hair. An example of this is women's menstrual cycle. Hormonal changes take place in the ovulation period that could cause some hair to lose, so as thyroid and pituitary disorders.

4. Zinc deficiency - Along with diarrhea and eczema, hair loss appears to be a symptom if one has inadequate intake or if the body poorly absorbs zinc.

5. Hair abuses - Too much treatments to hair such as coloring, perming, bleaching, corn rows, and usage of curling irons can wear out and eventually kill the hair. Even excessive use of comb and strong shampoo products can add up to hair loss. Combing the hair for about a hundred times will not really make it healthy; rather, it will lessen the strength of the hair and make it brittle. Shampoos' strong chemicals, on the other hand, can dry the hair up.

6. Giving birth - About a month after a woman gives birth, some of her hair strands have the tendency to fall off easily. Hair strands that fall off are usually from one portion of the head, leaving moon crater-like hair. The falling off of hair in this instance actually does not lead to baldness and it is not permanent, though the recovery period will take up to a year.

These and some other factors cause hair loss. There may be a lot, but the good thing is, there are also quite a lot with regard to medical options of treating this condition. Medicating hair loss can be done by undergoing surgical treatments like scalp grafting, taking oral medications like finasteride pills, or using topical applications such as ProFollica.

Each treatment is different in approaches, processes, requirements, and applications. For example, hair loss surgery is a proven effective method and so are pills. But both can only be applied to and taken by men. The surgery is usually recommendable to severe cases of hair loss, while pills like finasteride can cause harmful effects to women. Perhaps, the most convenient way to address hair loss treatment, for both men and women, is through applying topical products. This kind of remedy, like ProFollica, usually comes in a system. This system has natural ingredients, which make it safe for anyone's usage with hair loss condition. It is up to the person and to the doctor, if he is to consult one, what treatment he'll rather or willingly try.

Old beliefs, such as cap wearing bringing about hair loss or combing the hair more than one hundred times will make it healthier, have long been proven untrue. With some tips and causes given above, indeed, knowing the right causes will make one smart on choosing the right solutions.

I think it's fairly clear that DHT levels drop with increasing age -- they don't go up.

Causes of Hair Loss

"A considerable chunk of my work day is always spent answering people’s questions about prohormones and steroids. Of course, one of the biggest concerns people have is about estrogen and estrogen related side effects. Right behind that however are questions about DHT. It seems that people have the misconception that DHT is some evil androgen by product that serves no purpose in the body but to make our prostates blow up and our hair fall out.

The real situation is of course much more complex. DHT is one of those good guy / bad guy hormones that is sorely misunderstood. For many people, it is NOT something that you want to reduce or eliminate in the body. For some others though, keeping DHT levels under control is probably a prudent course of action. Knowing the facts about DHT will help you decide just which group you belong to.

Testosterone is a prohormone?

The main androgen secreted by the testes is of course testosterone. However, in most of the body, the androgenic signal is not carried through by testosterone. In these tissues, which include the brain (CNS), skin, genitals – practically everything but muscle – the active androgen is actually DHT. Testosterone in this case simply acts as a prohormone that is converted to the active androgen DHT by the action of the enzyme 5alpha reductase (5-AR).

5-AR is concentrated heavily in practically every androgen dependent area of the body except for skeletal muscle. This results in very little testosterone actually getting through to these parts of the body to bind to androgen receptors. Instead, it is quickly transformed into DHT, which then interacts with receptors.

This transformation serves a very important biological function in these tissues. You see, DHT is a much stronger androgen than testosterone – it binds about 3-5 times more strongly to the androgen receptor. If you took away 5-AR from these tissues and blocked the formation of DHT, then you would see some dramatic changes in physiology.

A good case in point is demonstrated in male pseudohermaphroditism due to congenital 5-AR deficiency. This is a relatively rare disorder, however it is actually quite common in the Dominican Republic. In this disorder, males are born with little or no 5-AR enzyme. They have ambiguous genitalia and are often raised as girls. When puberty occurs, their testosterone levels elevate normally although their DHT levels remain very low. Their musculature develops normally like that of other adults, however, they end up with little or no pubic / body hair and underdeveloped prostate and penis. Their libido and sexual function is often disrupted also.

Testosterone is the active androgen in muscle

Skeletal muscle is unique from other androgen dependent tissues in the body. It actually contains little or no 5-AR, so little or no DHT is actually formed in the muscle. In addition to this, any DHT that is formed, or that is already present in the blood and travels to the muscle, is quickly deactivated by an enzyme called 3alpha-hydroxysteroid reductase (3a-HSD).

So at least as far as muscle is concerned, testosterone is the primary active androgen. This is not to say that administering exogenous DHT is not without any anabolic effect. It actually does have some anabolic activity in the muscle, albeit significantly weaker than that of an equal amount of testosterone. This is due to its quick breakdown by 3a-HSD into the weak metabolite 5alpha-androstan-3a,17b-diol. If this enzyme were somehow blocked, it is likely that DHT would exhibit very potent anabolic effects on muscle.

It is important to understand that even though testosterone is the active androgen in muscle, and DHT exhibits relatively little direct anabolic effects on muscle in men, DHT is still very important for the full performance enhancement effects from testosterone. What I specifically mean here are the effects of DHT on the central nervous system, which lead to increased neurological efficiency (strength), and increased resistance to psychological and physical stress - not to mention optimal sexual function and libido.

I have heard several anecdotal reports of individuals who have stacked testosterone with proscar (a 5-AR inhibitor) and have noticed significantly reduced performance enhancement effects. What’s going on here? We know it couldn’t be due to the inhibition of the direct anabolic activity of testosterone on muscle anabolism. Most likely it is due to the reduction of androgenic effects in other parts of the body that contribute to the ergogenic effects, specifically the CNS, which is stimulated by androgens to increase neural output leading to greater strength and greater recoverability. Another possibility is a reduction in the production of androgen dependent liver growth factors (such as IGF-1), since DHT is an important androgen in the liver.

Anti – Estrogen effects of DHT

One important function of DHT in the body that does not get much discussion is its antagonism of estrogen. Some men that take Proscar learn this the hard way – by developing a case of gynecomastia. By reducing DHT’s protection against estrogen in the body, these men have fallen victim to its most dreaded ramification – bitch tits!

How does DHT protect against estrogen? There are at least three ways that this likely occurs. First of all, DHT directly inhibits estrogens activity on tissues. It either does this by acting as a competitive antagonist to the estrogen receptor or by decreasing estrogen-induced RNA transcription at a point subsequent to estrogen receptor binding.

Second of all, DHT and its metabolites have been shown to directly block the production of estrogens from androgens by inhibiting the activity of the aromatase enzyme. The studies done in breast tissue showed that DHT, androsterone, and 5alpha-androstandione are potent inhibitors of the formation of estrone from androstenedione. 5alpha-androstandione was shown to be the most potent, while androsterone was the least.

Lastly, DHT acts on the hypothalamus / pituitary to decrease the secretion of gonadotropins. By decreasing the secretion of gonadotropins you decrease the production of the raw materials for estrogen production – testosterone and androstenedione (DHT itself cannot aromatize into estrogens). This property of DHT comes into particular utility when it is administered exogenously, and this is to be discussed in further detail in the next section.

DHT, estrogen, and the prostate

When it comes to sex hormones, few things are as misunderstood by the general consumer as the relationship of the prostate to DHT. The inaccurate and overly simplistic attitude that DHT is responsible for prostate hypertrophy, and even prostate cancer predominates amongst most people.

The real situation is, of course, much more complex. One must understand that there are marked differences between healthy prostate growth (developmental growth), prostate growth due to BPH, and cancerous prostate growth.

The first period of prostate growth, deemed developmental growth, is connected to puberty and the testicular secretion of androgens. This takes the prostate from its prepubertal dormancy to the normal sized, healthy, and functional prostate gland of an adult. During the early and mid adult years the prostate stays at this stage, despite the constant high levels of androgens in the body. However, if androgens are blocked in the body then the adult prostate will shrink in size. This can occur by castration, or even by blockade of 5-AR (recall that DHT is the active androgen in the prostate).

Later in life, there is often a second stage of growth. This growth is deemed benign prostate hypertrophy (BPH) and this growth occurs in a wholly different hormonal environment than that of developmental growth. Evidence is mounting that the existence of a high estrogen / androgen ratio – a condition common in older men – is highly correlated to the development of BPH.

Experimental studies have shown the inability of androgens with saturated A rings (DHT related) to induce an initial condition of prostate hypertrophy. These compounds are non-aromatizable. Aromatizable androgens on the other hand, such as testosterone or androstenedione can induce hyperplasic modifications of the prostate of monkeys, but these effects are reversed by the addition of an aromatase inhibitor.

So apparently, estrogen is a causative factor in BPH or, probably more accurately, estrogen in the presence of a minimum, permissive amount of androgen.

None of this may come as news to many of you, but I bet that very few of you know that DHT can actually be used to treat BPH!! How can it do that? It basically does this by replacing the testosterone in the body, which then has the effect of reducing the amount of estrogen in the body. As I started to explain before, DHT is a strong androgen that will signal the pituitary to decrease the production of gonadotropins. The decrease in gonadotropins will then cause less testosterone to be produced which will in turn cause the estrogen levels to drop. The resulting change in the hormonal milieu (high DHT, low estrogen) then apparently results in a regression of BPH.

The clinical application of this theory is discussed in US patent 5,648,350 "Dihydrotestosterone for use in androgenotherapy". The following illustrates the results:

"In 27 subjects in which the plasma DHT level was controlled, so as to modulate the administered doses, said levels have been increased to 2.5 to 6 ng/ml. There resulted a decrease in gonadotrophy as well as in the plasma levels of testosterone which exceeded at least 1.5 ng/ml (from 0.5 to 1.4 according to the case); as to the estradiol plasma levels, these decreased by 50%.

Among this group of subjects, the volume of the prostate diminished significantly, as was evaluated by ultrasound and by PSA (Prostate Specific Antigen). The mean volume of the prostates was from 31.09.+-.16.31 grams before treatment and from 26.34.+-.12.72 grams after treatment, for a mean reduction of 15.4%, the treatment having a mean duration of 1.8 years with DHT (P=0.01)."

This kind of flies in the face of the traditional thinking concerning BPH now doesn’t it?

Conclusion

People have a natural tendency to classify things as either good or bad, with no gray areas. DHT (like estrogen) has recently been on everyone’s bad list, and is often considered to be a hormone that serves no function in the body except to cause harm. As you can see, this view is far from the truth. In my opinion, the widespread use of 5-AR inhibitors such as Proscar as a prophylactic agent for people that really don’t need it should be reconsidered. So give DHT a break."

» How does DHT protect against estrogen? There are at least three ways that

»
» Second of all, DHT and its metabolites have been shown to directly block
» the production of estrogens from androgens by inhibiting the activity of

» formation of estrone from androstenedione. 5alpha-androstandione was shown
» to be the most potent, while androsterone was the least.
»
» Lastly, DHT acts on the hypothalamus / pituitary to decrease the secretion
» of gonadotropins. By decreasing the secretion of gonadotropins you decrease
» the production of the raw materials for estrogen production – testosterone
» and androstenedione (DHT itself cannot aromatize into estrogens). This
» property of DHT comes into particular utility when it is administered

» (developmental growth), prostate growth due to BPH, and cancerous prostate
» growth.
»
» The first period of prostate growth, deemed developmental growth, is
» connected to puberty and the testicular secretion of androgens. This takes
» the prostate from its prepubertal dormancy to the normal sized, healthy,
» and functional prostate gland of an adult. During the early and mid adult
» years the prostate stays at this stage, despite the constant high levels of
» androgens in the body. However, if androgens are blocked in the body then
» the adult prostate will shrink in size. This can occur by castration, or
» even by blockade of 5-AR (recall that DHT is the active androgen in the

»
» Later in life, there is often a second stage of growth. This growth is
» deemed benign prostate hypertrophy (BPH) and this growth occurs in a wholly

Causes of Hair Loss: 30-year Results

I agree (mostly) with The Natural; inhibiting DHT to fight hair loss is just like blocking production of cholesterol production. We are treating the symptoms with a sledgehammer.

Of course blocking DHT can help with the hair loss fight (as in my case) but it is a crude mechanism with many potential side-effects.

FOR THE RECORD: I just posted my 30 year history fighting hair loss - yes with pictures!!!:-D




» "A considerable chunk of my work day is always spent answering people’s
» questions about prohormones and steroids. Of course, one of the biggest
» concerns people have is about estrogen and estrogen related side effects.
» Right behind that however are questions about DHT. It seems that people
» have the misconception that DHT is some evil androgen by product that
» serves no purpose in the body but to make our prostates blow up and our
» hair fall out.
»
» The real situation is of course much more complex. DHT is one of those good
» guy / bad guy hormones that is sorely misunderstood. For many people, it is
» NOT something that you want to reduce or eliminate in the body. For some
» others though, keeping DHT levels under control is probably a prudent
» course of action. Knowing the facts about DHT will help you decide just
» which group you belong to.
»
» Testosterone is a prohormone?
»
» The main androgen secreted by the testes is of course testosterone.
» However, in most of the body, the androgenic signal is not carried through
» by testosterone. In these tissues, which include the brain (CNS), skin,
» genitals – practically everything but muscle – the active androgen is
» actually DHT. Testosterone in this case simply acts as a prohormone that is
» converted to the active androgen DHT by the action of the enzyme 5alpha
» reductase (5-AR).
»
» 5-AR is concentrated heavily in practically every androgen dependent area
» of the body except for skeletal muscle. This results in very little
» testosterone actually getting through to these parts of the body to bind to
» androgen receptors. Instead, it is quickly transformed into DHT, which then
» interacts with receptors.
»
» This transformation serves a very important biological function in these
» tissues. You see, DHT is a much stronger androgen than testosterone – it
» binds about 3-5 times more strongly to the androgen receptor. If you took
» away 5-AR from these tissues and blocked the formation of DHT, then you
» would see some dramatic changes in physiology.
»
» A good case in point is demonstrated in male pseudohermaphroditism due to
» congenital 5-AR deficiency. This is a relatively rare disorder, however it
» is actually quite common in the Dominican Republic. In this disorder, males
» are born with little or no 5-AR enzyme. They have ambiguous genitalia and
» are often raised as girls. When puberty occurs, their testosterone levels
» elevate normally although their DHT levels remain very low. Their
» musculature develops normally like that of other adults, however, they end
» up with little or no pubic / body hair and underdeveloped prostate and
» penis. Their libido and sexual function is often disrupted also.
»
» Testosterone is the active androgen in muscle
»
» Skeletal muscle is unique from other androgen dependent tissues in the
» body. It actually contains little or no 5-AR, so little or no DHT is
» actually formed in the muscle. In addition to this, any DHT that is formed,
» or that is already present in the blood and travels to the muscle, is
» quickly deactivated by an enzyme called 3alpha-hydroxysteroid reductase
» (3a-HSD).
»
» So at least as far as muscle is concerned, testosterone is the primary
» active androgen. This is not to say that administering exogenous DHT is not
» without any anabolic effect. It actually does have some anabolic activity
» in the muscle, albeit significantly weaker than that of an equal amount of
» testosterone. This is due to its quick breakdown by 3a-HSD into the weak
» metabolite 5alpha-androstan-3a,17b-diol. If this enzyme were somehow
» blocked, it is likely that DHT would exhibit very potent anabolic effects
» on muscle.
»
» It is important to understand that even though testosterone is the active
» androgen in muscle, and DHT exhibits relatively little direct anabolic
» effects on muscle in men, DHT is still very important for the full
» performance enhancement effects from testosterone. What I specifically mean
» here are the effects of DHT on the central nervous system, which lead to
» increased neurological efficiency (strength), and increased resistance to
» psychological and physical stress - not to mention optimal sexual function
» and libido.
»
» I have heard several anecdotal reports of individuals who have stacked
» testosterone with proscar (a 5-AR inhibitor) and have noticed significantly
» reduced performance enhancement effects. What’s going on here? We know it
» couldn’t be due to the inhibition of the direct anabolic activity of
» testosterone on muscle anabolism. Most likely it is due to the reduction of

Hi, didn't you use Resveratol and Turmeric to stop hairloss? Did it work? Any details? Also, is Turmeric safe and what dosage would you reccomend? I lost a close relative to a brain tumor, so was a bit scared reading about some claims that Turmeric may accelerate cancer

Also, is there a safe, cheap Turmeric source available (one without any lead etc) - I live in India and would probably order online.

From what I have read, you should not expect anything more than maintaining your existing hair with curcumin and resveratrol. It stops shedding and inflammation (i.e.dandruff), but does appear to regrow hair for most users.

As I mentioned in an earlier posts, I have since switched to curcumin and aged garlic extract, because I think garlic has more benefits and is cheaper.

Do not buy LEF's Super Bio Curcumin, as it has caused many users to shed. The other brands that I stated (Jarrow, Thorne Research, etc.) have been effective for users. Use as directed.

Hope this helps.

I agree.

I have read so many horror stories about Proscar. Nothing is worth risking your health over, even if its results are, on average, much better than that of natural alternatives.

believe me, people on propecia are not witnessing great results!

the natrual route is much more potent if you know the true cause of baldness...i think theres even hope for people with norwood 7 baldness via the natrual route!!

can you recommend a good all natural route? I have been on Propecia for a year and a half, it stops my hair loss for sure, but am concerned about side effects using this long term.

what norwood are you?

perhaps the natrual and more experienced people that are on the natrual route can chime in.

my experience on the natrual route has only been for about 1/1.5 years but still im confident, and im currently introducing new stuff to reverse the hairloss in my hairline.

you obviously seemed to have controlled your hair loss via propecia, and dont want to suggest a regime that may not work for you.

Causes of Hair Loss

Causes of hair loss are many, and some of the common ones are hereditary MPB, underlying illness, medications, vitamins/ minerals deficiency, stress, etc.

You can treat hair loss naturally by using products that contain effective herbs such as He Shou Wu and saw palmetto. Both these potent herbs aid in preventing hair loss and promote hair growth.

Causes of Hair Loss

Definitely sounds like Alopecia Areata - an autoimmune disease. It causes bald spot that can spread to the whole scalp and sometimes even the whole body. Stress has been known to be the main cause.

@ Hair Falling Treatment

Causes of Hair Loss

Alopecia areata is quite a rare condition. However, it affects many prominent female figures, to wit: Joanna Roswell, Kayla Martell, and Anne Trujillo. AA affects 4 million Americans in the United States.

Alopecia areata is one of the most common hair loss conditions. It is characterized by rounded, smooth, and non-scarring bald spots anywhere in the body. Alopecia areata usually begins to affect a person at a young age. Furthermore, most patients recover within a year or so. However, it is a potentially recurring condition.

Experts have enough reason to suggest that AA is an autoimmune disorder. It has been observed that T-cells, the lymphocytes responsible for fighting infection, suddenly attack the anagen-hair follicles all over the body for reasons that remain unknown. T-cells attack the root sheath, matrix, and hair shaft, causing hair to fall out in clusters.
People who begin to suffer the condition before reaching the age of 30 may have a genetic predisposition to the disease. Approximately 20% of people with AA have a family member who is similarly affected. It’s also observed to affect members of families which have histories of asthma, allergies, eczema, thyroiditis, lupus, vitiligo, among other autoimmune diseases.

People with AA do not only suffer scalp hair loss. They suffer patches of baldness anywhere in the body as well as loss of eyelashes and eyebrows. The patch can transfer from one spot to another or occur concurrently.

Thankfully, there are treatments for the condition. Cortisone is a naturally occurring steroid produced in the adrenal glands. it has inherently strong anti-inflammatory properties which in medicine form, can be used to stimulate hair growth as well as prevent new patches from forming. Another common treatment is anthralin, which helps improve metabolism. The mechanism of action of anthralin is not actually known but stimulates hair growth through irritation. Its side effects itchiness, redness, skin discoloration, etc. A very popular treatment used to treat practically any form of hair loss is topical minoxidil, which improves blood circulation to the hair follicles to encourage hair growth. Its side effects include shortness of breath, lightheadedness, nausea, irritation, etc.

Causes of Hair Loss

Great post sir. Modern life is full of tensions and worries. Pollution makes it worst. The daily life let us face all these causes. It results in hair loss directly or indirectly.
