Hair loss in women is a common and significant health issue that negatively affects body image, self-confidence and perceived quality of life. It is estimated that 60% of women between 30 and 60 years of age will experience some degree of hair loss or hair thinning at some stage in their lives, and many suffer in silence not knowing where to turn to for advice.
What is hair loss?
Hair loss is not just a cosmetic issue. Many women do not realize that the condition of their hair reflects personal health. At certain ages and stages of a woman’s life, the health of her hair could be affected by many factors. Causes of excessive hair loss can range from hereditary to medical conditions to stress, diet and childbirth or to styling issues. It is therefore very important to get a diagnosis from a healthcare practitioner to determine the type of hair loss and to rule out any underlying medical conditions such as low iron levels, thyroid problems or hormonal imbalances.
Female pattern hair loss is a common condition which often worsens during menopause due to changing hormone levels. During and after menopause, hair might become thinner because hair follicles shrink. Hair grows more slowly and falls out more easily. In Female pattern hair loss, the thinning hair is centered at the crown and top of the head.
Hair Growth Cycle
Regardless of the hair loss cause, the Hair Growth Cycle is almost always affected. It is normal to shed about 50 to 100 hairs a day and that new hairs grow in their place. Typically, 85 to 90% of hair is actively growing at any given time while 10 to 15% of the hair is in the resting phase. The consequences of a disrupted Hair Growth Cycle are often a reduction in the duration of the Anagen (Growth) phase. This leads to increased hair shedding and weaker regrowth since more hairs enter the Telogen (Resting) phase earlier and become dormant.
Addressing hair loss with a targeted Proteoglycan Replacement Therapy is the first step in promoting hair growth and improving the quality of life for hair loss sufferers.
Nourkrin Hair Supplements
Nourkrin is a novel therapeutic approach to hair loss. The proprietary active ingredient, Marilex, is rich in key proteoglycans that are present in human hair follicles and are essential to hair follicle cycling. Marilex acts on both dormant and existing hair follicles by stimulating hair follicles to go in the Anagen (Growth) Phase and prolonging the Anagen phase. In this way it promotes continuous healthy hair regrowth and reduces the amount of hair shedding.
Nourkrin tablets are an effective, scientifically proven product that may be used as a first line treatment to provide the integral normalizing effect to the Hair Growth Cycle and may also be used in conjunction with other treatments, depending on the hair loss condition.
How to use Nourkrin
It is recommended to take Nourkrin tablets for 6 months due to the average length of the Hair Growth Cycle. Though individual results vary, most Nourkrin users start to notice a difference after 2 to 3 months of proper use on the recommended daily intake.
Nourkrin is safe and side effect free but it should not be taken by people with allergies to fish as the active ingredient is a marine-derived extract.
Nourkrin is supported by 30 years of research into hair growth disorders and has been awarded a Gold Medal from the World Trichology Society.
