Hair Loss Treatments
What causes hair loss and male pattern baldness
One of the most common conditions that affects men in their fifties is hair
loss, male pattern baldness and increased body hair growth. In order to choose one of the available hair
loss treatments, it's important to understand what causes male hair loss.
Male pattern baldness and hair loss tend to be linked to another condition that
affects men after the age of 50 - enlargement of the prostate gland. The enlarged prostate or benign prostatic
hyperplasia (BPH) is caused by increase levels of the hormone dihydrotestosterone (DHT), which also causes hair
loss and increased body hair growth.
An enzyme called 5-alpha reductase converts testosterone into
di-hydro-testosterone or DHT hormone. This hormone has been found in the bloodstream of men with BPH and in the
scalps of men who suffer from hair loss. Men who do not suffer from hair loss have been found to have less of
5-alpha reductase enzyme in their bloodstream.
There are several supplements that have been used as hair loss treatments, or for
the prevention of hair loss. Depending on whether you want to prevent or suffer from hair loss, male
pattern baldness or even enlarged prostate, choose one particular hair loss treatment that can treat your condition
in the most effective way. Avodart and Finasteride have
been both effective in treating enlarged prostate and hair loss, while Minsaw-A hair
lotion and Nizoral shampoo are good for ongoing prevention of hair loss.
