Unfortunately, there is an army of snake-oil salesmen ready to part you from your hard-earned cash on ‘natural treatments’ that are both ineffective and a waste of your time/money. But, there are proven treatments available that will help to not only prevent further hair loss but even regrow your lost hair.

The ingredients in Andro-Block P have been proven effective in treating hair loss by a broad range of scientific studies.

Let’s learn a bit about the hair growth cycle and discover how the ingredients in Andro-Block P can give you youthful looking, healthier, and more abundant hair.

The Hair Growth Lifecycle

You should be familiar with your hair growth cycle so you can better understand how hair loss problems can prevent you from maintaining a healthy head of hair.

The hair growth cycle consists of distinct stages:

Anagen Phase

Human hair grows approximately half an inch each month, and grows faster in the summer than during the winter months. This growth phase can last an average of 3-5 years; making a full-length hair between 18-30 inches.

Catagen Phase

At the end of the anagen phase; your hair enters the catagen phase. This is just a short transitional period that will last roughly 10 days.

Telogen Phase

Finally, your hair begins the telogen phase. This is a resting phase when hair is also released from the scalp and falls out (shedding).

In this phase, the follicle can remain inactive for up to 3 months until the whole growth cycle process is repeated. Every one of your hair follicles is independent of the rest, and will go through this growth cycle at different times; otherwise you’d shed all your hair at the same time.

Ordinarily, a healthy individual will shed between 80-150 hairs per day.

Hair loss, hair thinning and problems with hair growth will occur when this growth cycle is disrupted by illness, malnutrition or conditions like androgenetic alopecia caused by DHT.

How Does Andro-Block P Help You Regrow Hair?

Andro-Block P contains 3 powerful follicle-protecting and hair restoring ingredients that work synergistically to treat the most common causes of both male and female pattern baldness:

     • Sensitivity to DHT
     • Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS), which causes hormonal imbalances in women
     • Genetic predisposition to baldness

By combining ketoconazole, progesterone, and spironolactone; Andro-Block P powerfully inhibits hair follicle damage due to DHT sensitivity and hormone imbalances while creating a positive environment for renewed hair growth.

Ketoconazole

Ketoconazole (KCZ), originally used for seborrheic dermatitis, dandruff and as an anti-fungal medication, has also been found to be effective in stimulating new hair growth when applied topically. In a paper published in The Journal of Dermatology (3); a study was conducted to quantitatively examine the stimulatory effect of KCZ on hair growth in a mouse model.

Researchers clipped the coat hairs on the dorsal skin of seven-week-old male mice and either a 2% KCZ solution in 95% ethanol or a placebo was topically applied once daily for three weeks. The clipped area was then photographed, and the ratio of re-grown coat area was calculated. The results showed that just 2% KCZ had a significant effect on stimulating new hair growth (3).

Even though the exact mechanism of topical KCZ for hair growth is not clearly understood, evidence suggests that KCZ acts as an androgen receptor suppressor (4).

Further tests conducted on human test subjects in Japan (4), strongly suggest that topical application of KCZ is an effective and safe treatment for both hair regression and male pattern hair loss (4).

The KCZ in Andro-Block P has been scientifically proven to encourage renewed hair growth.

Progesterone

Progesterone is a critical hormone produced by the female body. Progesterone acts as a precursor in the production of other vital hormones, such as estrogen and cortisone.

Progesterone-based hair restoration therapy is demonstrably effective in treating hair loss, according to multiple studies (5). It’s believed that progesterone acts by inhibiting an enzyme called 5-alpha reductase, the enzyme needed to convert testosterone into DHT (5). Specifically; progesterone will prevent DHT from forming in the first place by blocking the action of 5-alpha reductase (6).

Certain other studies have also suggested that progesterone could have a significant effect on human hair growth beyond its ability to prevent testosterone from converting into DHT (7).

Higher levels of estrogens during pregnancy are thought to be the reason for an increase in the ratio of hair follicles in the growing phase of the female hair growth cycle. It’s also true that after giving birth (when progesterone levels decrease), these new follicles enter a resting phase that results in increased hair shedding and temporary hair thinning (7, 8).

Andro-Block P contains the progesterone that both blocks production of DHT and creates a hormonal environment in your scalp that encourages hair regrowth (8).

Spironolactone

Spironolactone is a powerful androgen receptor blocker, and when applied topically can prevent DHT from attaching to both hair follicles and oil glands (9).

Spironolactone can effectively prevent DHT from binding to androgen receptors in your follicles and stimulating your body’s immune response to attack your own hair. Although the reason for this isn't clearly understood, topical spironolactone is a scientifically verified way to stop DHT from causing a follicle destroying immune response (10).

Unlike Propecia, another popular hair growth treatment that also reduces DHT levels, topically applied spironolactone has no systematic effects that can create hormone imbalances that cause sexual side effects (11). Recent studies all confirm that topical spironolactone is completely safe for men and has no systemic side effects in human test subjects (12)

The spironolactone in Andro-Block P is effective and safe.
