Provillus® is an all-natural, botanically-derived hair care system of oral supplements formulated to enhance the growth of hair. Provillus® products do not require FDA approval since they don't contain drugs such as minoxidil or finasteride. Provillus® products claim to improve hair growth in male or female pattern baldness. They also help hair loss related to post-pregnancy and menopause. Provillus® offers separate supplements for men and women.
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.
Provillus® supplements contain vitamins, proteins and amino acids derived from herbs and botanicals that help make the hair healthier and grow faster. The Provillus® for Men supplement contains botanically-based nutrients such as saw palmetto and nettle root that block the damaging effects of 5-alpha-reductase and stop the production of DHT. The Provillus® for Women supplement includes nutrients such the herb Horsetail (Equisetum arvense) that promotes blood circulation to the scalp and hair growth.
The manufacturers have not published clinical studies of their products. They state that their supplements are free of any known side effects.
