Saw palmetto extracts keeps testosterone levels balanced. As men age, a hormone called 5α-Dihydrotestosterone (DHT) increases. The cause of hair loss is due to the hair follicles’ sensitivity to DHT, which is a male androgen hormone that causes follicles to shrink. This results in a shorter life span and decreases the production of hair.
While this is very relevant in men, it is less relevant in women. Because our product is specially formulated for women we decided to add vitamins and minerals that are more relevant to women and avoid those that have less of an impact. If we added Saw Palmetto, we would have to eliminate the same amount in other components. Our product has been formulated by doctors for women and we wouldn't want to reduce any of the vitamins and minerals that are very important for their overall hair growth cycle and health.
