1. Hair loss is not genetic... it's epigenetic.
For years I researched, hunting for anything I could find to help. Doctors, mainstream media, and my friends just kept saying that hair loss is genetic... there's nothing I can do about it except take nasty pharmaceuticals that caused all sorts of bad side effects.
Then I learned something that changed my entire view of it - hair loss is epigenetic, meaning certain things I was doing every day, like my vegan and keto dieting, my stress levels, and chemicals in my shampoos, soaps, and deodorant were actually triggering my rapid hair loss. It wasn't genetic at all - my environment & habits were causing it.
2. Your hair follicles need glucose & CO2 to grow hair. Without these, they literally cannot function properly.
I found a study where researchers analyzed how hair follicles require 2 things as "fuel" in order to actually grow hair: glucose and CO2.
When your body isn't producing enough CO2 through your glucose metabolism, the follicles stop working properly.
The researchers said that "although fatty acids and ketones were oxidized by the hair follicle, they are poor energetic substitutes for glucose. Nor will fatty acids or ketones sustain hair growth."
Your hair follicles actually need SUGAR to grow hair.
3. You need to methylate excess estrogen fast. Get rid of it!
When you look at all the studies about hair loss in men (women too)... you notice one thing in common - HIGH ESTROGEN levels.
When I realized this, I started using UMZU's choline and betaine supplements because they're both potent estrogen methylators, which means they help make excess estrogen inactive in your body, so it can't wreak havoc.
As they explained in the Thermo Diet Program, high estrogen levels throw your hormones out of balance, and hair loss is a very common symptom. It was so simple, but it started to work quickly. I'd never heard anyone say this before.
4. Bad thyroid gland function = hair loss.
Thyroid dysfunction is the silent epidemic across the modern world. It's estimated that as many as 1 in 3 people have a poorly functioning thyroid gland.
I found out how crucial the thyroid gland is for your metabolism, and CO2 production throughout your body, which is the fuel for hair follicles to grow hair. My thyroid was wrecked from fad dieting, so when I restored healthy thyroid function, my hair started growing again.
5. Certain supplements can help to reverse hair loss fast.
When I realized that my hair loss was due to my imbalanced hormone levels, I found specific supplements like KSM-66 organic ashwagandha, mucuna pruriens, choline, betaine, Vitamin B6, and collagen protein that all had fast results in rebalancing those nasty "stress hormones" like estrogen, cortisol, and prolactin.
Most of the studies showed results of up to 69% improvements in as fast as 8 weeks of consistent use. So I started including these in my regimen immediately.
