Provillus is a hair growth product formulated to fight against hair loss and restore health to thinning hair. It is primarily targeted to slowing down and reversing Androgenetic alopecia, the most common cause of hair loss in humans. Although androgenetic alopecia is also known as male pattern baldness and is more common in men, it is also known to cause hair loss in women although the expression and pattern varies. Dihydrotestosterone or DHT is the main culprit causing hair loss in androgenetic alopecia. Under certain conditions, DHT attaches itself to hair follicle receptors causing hair strands to thin out, weaken and fall out. Although it is normal for some hair fall to occur to make way for new growth, this type of hair loss is not replaced because DHT overwhelms all of the remaining hair follicles, eventually killing them off.
Contains FDA-Approved Hair Growth Drug Minoxidil
Provillus is formulated to stop this process by inhibiting DHT so that existing live follicles can be kept healthy. The formulation is a two-part system consisting of a liquid topical solution that needs to be applied on the affected area twice a day and a supplement pill that needs to be taken twice a day. The main ingredient for the liquid solution is Minoxidil, the only FDA-approved drug for weight loss, which has been clinically proven able to stop hair loss and encourage new hair growth. The second part of the Provillus system is a dietary supplement containing natural ingredients known to be able to nourish and strengthen hair. Provillus markets two specialized versions of this supplement, one for each gender since the causes of hair loss significantly varies between men and women.
Provillus for Women
Provillus for women contains Vitamin B6, biotin, magnesium, and a proprietary blend of horsetail silica (Equisetum arvense) and para-amino benzoic acid. Vitamin B6 works to prevent hair loss by raising red blood cell levels in the scalp and converting tryptophan to niacin. Biotin, another Vitamin B complex nutrient promotes healthy skin, hair and scalp. Magnesium, which is essential to protein synthesis, works with calcium to promote new hair growth. Horsetail silica, a natural herb is known to help strengthen hair and nails due to its high silica content. PABA on the other hand, is known to promote new hair growth and prevent graying.
Provillus for Men
Provillus for Men also contains Vitamin B6, Biotin and Magnesium. In addition, it contains Zinc and saw palmetto (Serenoa repens) and a Proprietary blend of natural ingredients known to combat hair loss. These ingredients include Stinging nettle (Urtica dioica), Pumpkin seed (Cucurbita maxima), Eluethero root (Eleutherococcus senticosus), Uva-Ursi root (Arctostaphylos uva-ursi), and Muira Puama (Ptychopetalum olacoides). Two of the most important ingredients for this formula are saw palmetto and nettle root, which are both used in treating prostate enlargement in men. Since DHT is also the culprit in prostate issues, both are also useful DHT inhibitors to slow down hair loss.
Provillus reviews have indicated that positive results can be seen as soon as one month from regularly applying the solution and taking the pill. Maximum results manifest in about six months though and drug information about Minoxidil indicates that it needs to be used continuously to support continuous hair growth. Since Minoxidil is a key ingredient in several other hair growth products, it appears that the success of Provillus is due to its unique two-part system. By stopping further hair loss and nourishing new growth, Provillus has proven to be very effective in restoring health and thickness to thinning and balding hair. This uniquely supportive system makes Provillus one of the best hair growth products in the market today.
