Do you suffer from bald spots, hair thinning or round patches on your scalp? Good news, you aren’t the only one. About 80 million men and women in the United States experience some type of hair loss. 

The American Academy of Dermatology Association acknowledges that millions of men and women have hereditary hair loss that can be successfully treated. There are many options you can take for the proper hair care treatment - medication, scalp treatments, laser hair therapy or Nutrafol


Nutrafol products are physician-formulated hair thinning treatments for men and women. There arethree formulas with ingredients clinically-proven to improve your hair growth. Created with botanical ingredients from the latest research findings, Nutrafol is one of the first 100 percent, drug-free nutraceuticals for hair. 

A nutraceutical contains standardized, medical-grade and bio-optimized ingredients. For a broken-down definition, nutraceuticals are nourishing and bioactive properties working in tandem. 

During the extraction and purification process, Nutrafol’s nutraceuticals are held to exacting pharmaceutical-grade standards. 

The product is proven to perform the following:

  • Rebalance: Stabilize harmful levels of dihydrotestosterone and stress-damaging hormones
  • Repair: Fight free radicals and inflammation at the root
  • Revitalize: Improve scalp circulation to help revive dormant hair follicles
  • Regrow: Deliver nutrients critical to the follicle rebuilding process, necessary for improving the hair growth cycle

Nutrafol is a growing wellness company with three founders - an engineer, entrepreneur and a physician. The company has on-staff doctors with a wealth of hair science knowledge to ensure you’re always on the most direct path to better hair growth. Its scientific advisors are always at the forefront of current research and testing cutting-edge studies in hair growth and wellness. 

The product has been reviewed by top companies such as Glamour, Allure, Maxium, Men’s Health, CBS, Forbes and more.



Everybody is different, resulting in hair growth to occur during varying times depending on genetics and external factors. Your hair grows from a root in the bottom of the follicle. 

  • The Anagen Stage: Growth: Also known as the growth phase, the anagen stage is where hair follicles are actively growing. This stage typically lasts from three to five years. The duration of this stage is determined by the maximum length of your hair. 
  • The Catagen Stage: Regression: In the regression phase, hair follicles get smaller and remove from your skin. After completion of the anagen phase, hair follicles begin to fall out. 
  • The Telogen Stage: Resting: The resting phase is where new hair begins to grow under the older, removed hairs. This phase usually lasts from three to five months before a hair follicle is pushed out by new hair growth. When a person feels stress or manages other health conditions, this can result in hair shedding (exogen) causing hair follicles to enter the telogen phase. 
  • The Exogen Stage: Shedding: Older hair falls out from your scalp and is replaced by new hair in the shedding phase. This typically occurs while you are using a brush or washing your hair. On a daily basis, it is normal for about 50 to 100 hairs to fall out. As new hair grows and replaces your old hair, this completes the hair growth cycling. According to the Mayo Clinic, hair loss can be gradual or sudden as it affects not only your scalp but your entire body. Anyone is susceptible to hair loss, however, it is more common in men. 

Factors causing hair loss:

  • UV exposure
  • Products and styling
  • Pollution
  • Extreme exercise and training
  • Diet and nutrition
  • Cortisol hormone (stress)
  • DHT Hormone (genes)
  • Natural aging process

Certain triggers cause an excess of free radicals, oxidative stress and micro-inflammation



Nutrafol ingredients affect all four stages of healthy hair growth by multi-targeting the underlying causes of thinning. The Synergen Complex breakthrough formula contains patented stress adaptogens, super antioxidants and hormone supporting botanicals. 

The drug-free, health-full pure and natural ingredients contain properties to improve hair and body health. See the list of ingredients below:

  • EVNolMax: A form of Vitamin E extracted from Tocomin palm oil; clinically-shown to increase hair growth by 34 percent. 
  • Sensoril Ashwagandha: This ingredient decreases levels of hair damaging stress hormones (cortisol) by 30.5 percent, reduces inflammatory C-reactive protein (CRP) by 35.2 percent and improves your hair follicles resistance to stress.
  • BCM-95 Biocurcumin: A potent anti-inflammatory, antioxidant that lowers inflammatory biomarkers (CRP). Extracted from turmeric, the curcumin optimizes immune system and fights inflammatory molecules proven to slow hair growth.
  • USPlus Saw Palmetto: This dual-patented carbon dioxide contains ultra-high-pressure technology. Proven to prevent testosterone conversion to DHT. It is a naturally occurring hormone in the body, which contributes to thinning hair by shrinking hair follicles. 
  • Cynatine HNS: A solubilized, bioactive keratin which provides building blocks of hair with amino acids, cysteine and proline. It is proven to improve hair strength and brightness. 
  • Hydrolyzed Marine Collagen and Hyaluronic Acid: This ingredient rebuilds the structural integrity of your hair follicle environment, improves moisture and promotes the diffusion of nutrients. The hydrolyzed low molecular weight creates better bioavailability.
