Hair Loss Treatments: Procerin

Among over-the-counter treatments for treating hair loss, Procerin is a favored choice among men and women (though it is recommended mostly for men suffering from androgenic alopecia). Procerin is available in the form of tablets and foam that is meant for topical application. Usually, people seeking a comprehensive cure for hair loss are recommended to use both these aids, simultaneously.

How Procerin Treats Hair Loss

Men and women who suffer from androgenic alopecia tend to have elevated levels of androgens or hormones that react freely with certain enzymes to produce a compound called DHT or dihydrotestosterone. DHT is the main reason for inducing genetic hair loss patterns among both the sexes. Procerin alleviates hair fall by blocking the action of DHT, but it does so without reacting or impairing the synthesis of the androgens (hormones). This ensures that Procerin doesn’t react with testosterone and that the individual using Procerin doesn’t suffer from any hormonal side-effects. This is critical since many hair loss remedies aren't recommended for unisex usage as they induce hormone imbalances.

Procerin Tablet Ingredients

The three, most important natural ingredients in Procerin tablet that help to alleviate hair fall are saw palmetto, nettle and gotu kola. These act as natural retarders of DHT synthesis. Procerin also includes some other vitamins and minerals that don’t have a direct DHT-blocking action, but are considered vital in the revitalization of hair follicles. In this way, Procerin combines hair loss stoppage with natural supplementation for hair-growth. Other components of Procerin tablet are:

  • Magnesium
  • Zinc sulfate
  • Eleuthero root
  • Muira puma root
  • Vitamin B6
  • Pumpkin seed extract

Procerin Foam Ingredients

The topical solution of Procerin contains Azelaic acid. This is among the safest of topical aids for treating hair loss that externally inhibits the action of DHT. Apart from this, topical Procerin contains many kinds of aromatic oils and fatty acids that are aimed at renewing hair growth among hair follicles that are internally healed by Procerin tablets. These oils further ensure proper hydration of the scalp and alleviate conditions like dermatitis or scalp-based allergies. Some oils like pumpkin seed oil are reputed to have the ability to compete for binding with DHT receptor sites and impair the synthesis of active DHT. Other ingredients of Procerin foam include:

  • Tocopheryl acetate
  • Peppermint oil
  • Caprylyl glycol
  • Hydrogenated castor oil
  • Cocamidopropyl Betaine
  • Linoleic acid
  • Oleic acid
  • Rooibos extract
  • Evening primrose oil
  • Avocado Oil
  • Panthenol
  • Niacin
  • Azelaic Acid
  • Grape seed

Application of Procerin in Men

It is widely reputed that Procerin has been found to be most useful for men between the age of 18 and 35, who still have some hair that is actively growing (wherein the typical ‘M’-shaped bald pattern along the temple is still developing). However, this doesn’t mean Procerin is not helpful for those with aggressively receding hairline. Procerin’s effectiveness is widespread among most cases of hair loss.

Application of Procerin in Women

Some of the nutrients in Procerin are directed at more pronounced action among women struggling with hair fall. There are some natural ingredients in Procerin that combat hair loss in women by inhibiting the action of the 5-alpha-reductase enzyme that catalyzes the conversion of free testosterone into DHT. These compounds also impair the action of DHT receptor sites.
