The first-of-its-kind postpartum hair nutraceutical is now available from Nutrafol. Nutrafol Postpartum was developed with an OB/GYN to target the root causes of excess hair shedding and thinning post-pregnancy. It is intended to help the body recover from the physical stress of childbirth, adapt to the emotional stress of being a mother, and filling nutritional gaps with natural ingredients for thicker and stronger growing hair.

“As an OB/GYN and mother, I have long been looking for a solution to help women's hair and bodies recover faster during the postpartum period. Up until working with Nutrafol to help develop their new postpartum formula, there weren’t any products that targeted the root causes of hair thinning during this time with clinically-tested ingredients that were also breastfeeding-friendly,” says Anne Kennard, DO, FACOG, who worked on the formula. “Women are always cautious of what they choose to put into their bodies, and even more so during and after childbirth. It was crucial that we were able to offer a science-backed, evidence based product that they would feel comfortable using.”

Nutrafol Postpartum is breastfeeding friendly and compatible with most prenatal and multivitamins, and formulated for postpartum women in clinically effective dosages for consistent results.

“When we developed the postpartum formula, we looked at not only the history of safe and effective ingredients, but made sure that the right combination of botanicals, micronutrients and vitamins were used to truly optimize the body’s physiology to support hair growth through the postpartum transition,” says Dr. Kennard.

 Nutrafol Postpartum features proprietary Synergen Recovery Complex®, a blend of clinically-tested, whole-food-sourced ingredients that address root causes of postpartum thinning hair like physical and emotional stress, and nutrient depletion, Dr. Kennard notes. “Specifically, the formula includes natural ingredients like Shatavari, algae omega 3’s, pea sprouts and nettle that are known to be used during lactation and support overall health. Additionally, Collagen-OSA, apples, and supportive vitamins like A, D, C, Iodine, Selenium, and Biotin are proven to manage hair shedding, increase hair growth, support hair thickness and strength over time to help women feel more confident about their hair during the postpartum transition.”

Nutrafol Postpartum joins the company’s existing lineup of natural, clinically effective hair wellness supplements, Nutrafol Women and Nutrafol Women’s Balance, to support hair health through key stages of a woman’s life.
