Melancor® is an all-natural, botanically-derived hair care system of oral supplements formulated to enhance the growth and color of hair. Melancor® products do not require FDA approval since they don't contain drugs such as minoxidil or finasteride. The products are formulated for men and women.
Melancor® supplements contain Melancor-NH®, a patented compound derived from years of research. It includes a proprietary blend of bromelain, collagen type II, biotin, PABA (Para-Aminobenzoic Acid), pantothenic acid, choline, methionine and inositol.
Melancor's® manufacturer has conducted research in hair color and hair growth restoration. Individuals with gray hair have little or no melanin, the hair pigment which produces hair color. Melancor's® clinical trials have indicated that Melancor-NH® revives hair pigments and cells at the root and scalp of the hair. This stimulates the production of melanin, which colors the hair as it emerges from the follicle. "Melancor-NH® has been clinically proven to effectively work with a 78% success rate in both men and women," states the manufacturer, on its website.
Male or female pattern baldness, known as androgenetic alopecia (AGA), is a common form of hair loss in men and women. Male pattern baldness is caused by an overproduction of the androgenic hormone, dihydrotestosterone (DHT). DHT is a potent form of testosterone known to stimulate prostate growth and scalp hair loss. An enzyme produced in the prostate, adrenal glands and scalp, called 5-alpha-reductase, metabolizes the male hormone testosterone into DHT.
Melancor's® research suggests that Melancor-NH® may block the production of DHT. This can help stop hair loss and restore the hair growth process.
Melancor® products need to be used for 6 to 12 months to obtain desired results. "During clinical studies, 90% of users reported no side effects," states the manufacturer. "However, 2% of users reported nausea or headache. Discontinue use if nausea or headaches occur."
