Men's Provillus - Ingredients
Active Ingredients

Minoxidil 5% is the only FDA-approved topical ingredient clinically proven to regrow hair in men and women. Minoxidil is a "potassium channel agonist." It contains the chemical structure of Nitric oxide (NO), a blood vessel dilator, and may be a nitric oxide agonist. This may explain Minoxidil's ability to stimulate hair growth and treat hair loss. Since Minoxidil is a nitric oxide related compound it was suspected to act via activation of Guanylate cyclase, an enzyme involved in vasodilation, however there are no reports of cGMP or PKG activation to date.

Azelaic Acid 5% (pronounced az-uh-LAY-ic) is a simple molecule ( HOOC(CH2)7COOH, CAS Number 123-99-9, also known as 1,9-Nonanedioic acid) that is found in some whole grains and in trace amounts in human bodies. Although it is an acid, it is an extremely weak acid - much weaker than vinegar. A research report by Stamatiadis in 1988 suggested that azelaic acid was a strong type I 5-alpha reductase (5-AR) inhibitor.

Vitamin B6 is one of the B-complex, water-soluble vitamin. It exists in three major chemical forms: pyridoxine, pyridoxal, and pyridoxamine. Vitamin B6 is very essential for body functions and its deficiency can lead to many disorders including hair loss. [1] It is essential for nerve function, immune function, protein digestion and production of red blood cells. Vitamin B6 promotes hair growth and prevents hair loss. [2]

Biotin is also one of the Vitamin B complex necessary for fat and carbohydrate metabolism. It is essential for healthy skin, hair and nails and deficiency state has been shown to cause hair loss. [3]

Magnesium, an important mineral is essential for chemical reactions in the body including energy metabolism, protein synthesis, neuromuscular transmission, bone structure and hair growth. [4]

Zinc is an essential mineral necessary for a healthy immune system and proper functioning of enzymes. It is needed for cell division and hence important for skin, nails and hair. Studies report that zinc causes increase on hair density and reverses hair loss. [5] [6] [7]

Saw Palmetto extract has been shown to reduce DHT and 5 alpha-reductase. It actually blocks the receptor sites that are required for the absorption of DHT. It promotes hair growth by blocking the culprit DHT. [8] [9]

Nettle root blocks 2 enzymes, 5a-reductase, which makes the dihydrotestosterone (DHT) and aromatase enzyme, which makes estrogens. It also possesses antimicrobial, antioxidant, analgesic and antiulcer activity. [10] [11] [12]

Pumpkin (Cucurbita Maxima): The oil extract from pumpkin seeds has long been used as hair supplement. The extract has shown activity against testosterone, therefore has potential in preventing hair loss. [13]

Eleuthero Formerly Siberian Ginseng, (Glandular) is a member of the ginseng family, though it is of a different genus than other popular ginsengs such as the Panax variety. Like other ginseng, it had been traditionally used for healthy hair, for increasing endurance and helps restore concentration. The extract decreases testosterone levels in the body along with other stress hormones. [14]

Uva-Ursi extract has antimicrobial activity. [15] The herb neutralizes acidity in the urine, increasing urine flow, therefore reducing bloating & water retention, making it beneficial for hair growth.[16] [17]

Muria Puama plays an important role in energy metabolism, protein synthesis, neuromuscular transmission bone structure and hair growth for both men and women. Also help with stress management, nervous system stimulation, virility, and overall health. [18] [19] [20] [21]
