It has been clinically proven that the ingredients present in Revivogen® address the various causes of hair thinning and hair loss. Once you are detailed on the ingredients found in the Revivogen regimen products you will realize why it is best for treating your hair loss problem.
The active ingredients
The active ingredients found in Revivogen are all natural compounds that have been clinically proven to inhibit the production of the enzyme 5-alpha reductase that is required for DHT production. It also blocks the androgen receptors and helps in the growth of healthy, normal hair. The active ingredients in Revivogen include alpha linolenic acid (ALA), gamma linolenic acid (GLA), oleic acid, linoleic acid, azaleic acid, zinc, vitamin B6, saw palmetto extract, beta-sitosterol and procyanidin oligomers. The only product that contains all these elements, Revivogen is an easy-to-use topical regimen.
ALA,GLA, Oleic Acid & Linoleic Acid
ALA (Alpha Linolenic Acid), GLA (Gamma Linolenic Acid), Oleic Acid and Linoleic found in plant oils are essential fatty acids each of which have proven to inhibit the enzyme 5-Alpha Reductase. Though certain products like Propecia® inhibit the Type II form of the enzyme but these essential fatty acids present in Revivogen have proved to be the most potent inhibitors known till date to inhibit both Type II as well as Type I form of the enzyme present in huge concentrations in the scalp, skin and sebaceous glands. In addition they also possess anti-inflammatory properties.
Azelaic Acid, Zinc and Vitamin B6
A naturally occurring dicarboxylic acid, Azelaic acid is found in rye, whole grain cereals, barley, and animal products. Its topical application is effective in the treatment of various skin conditions and is approved by the FDA in treating acne. Scientific studies reveal that Zinc and Azelaic Acid are powerful inhibitors of enzyme 5-Alpha-Reductase. Combining Zinc, Azelaic acid and Vitamin B6 in very low concentrations inhibited the activities of 5 Alpha-Reductase by approximately 90% and proved to be very effective in the treatment of male pattern baldness.
Combination of ALA, GLA, , Azelaic acid , Linoleic Acid, Zinc Sulphate, Vitamin B6 and Saw Palmetto extract is a natural yet extremely potent anti-DHT formula that work together to inhibit the effects of both type 1 and 2 forms of the enzyme 5-Alpha Reductase and reduce DHT locally. Decrease in DHT levels, promotes growth and thickening of hair follicles naturally leading to a healthier, fuller scalp without any potential side effects as is the case while using synthetic drugs.
Saw Palmetto Extract
Saw palmetto, liposerolic extract of the fruit of Saw Palmetto is a known anti-androgen. Extensive studies have been conducted over the past several years regarding the use of saw palmetto extract in the treatment of enlarged prostate in men (BPH ). It has been clinically proven to block DHT effectively. The hair follicles have androgen receptors which are also blocked by saw palmetto extract. Like GLA and ALA, saw palmetto extract blocks Type 1 and Type 2 forms of the enzyme 5 alpha-reductase and comparatively more powerful than Finasteride, the active ingredient of Propecia
Similar to Minoxidil (Rogaine®) that stimulate hair growth, Revivogen uses a naturally derived ingredient Procyanidin Oligomers (or Proanthocyanidin) to increase the hair growth stimulation properties of the formula
