Nutrafol May Promote Hair Growth in Menopausal Women


Global hair quality improvements increased by 40 percent with few or no side effects in perimenopausal, menopausal, and postmenopausal women.

Nutrafol may improve hair growth and quality for perimenopausal, menopausal, and postmenopausal women, according to research  presented during The North American Menopause Society (NAMS) Annual Meeting in Washington, DC.

Researchers compared results at 6 months and 12 months of treatment and found that mean total hair counts increased significantly and progressively in perimenopausal, menopausal, and postmenopausal women. Global hair quality improvements significantly increased by 40 percent with few or no side effects, along with a decrease in hair shedding, the study found.

"With the aging of our society and the fact that women now spend approximately one-third of their lives in the postmenopausal period, research into interventions for menopause symptoms, including hair thinning, is critical, especially with therapeutic options being so limited," says Dr. Glynis Ablon of the Ablon Skin Institute and Research Center in California and lead author of the study in a news release.

"Hair loss is a significant concern for midlife women," adds Dr. Stephanie Faubion, NAMS medical director. "Additional research will help confirm the long-term efficacy of nutraceutical supplements."

The study was funded by Nutrafol manufacturer Nutraceutical Wellness.
