If you’ve been researching hair loss, there’s a good chance you’ve come across the name Dihydrotestosterone, otherwise known as DHT. DHT is a derivative of the male hormone testosterone; testosterone is converted to DHT with the help an enzyme called 5-alpha-reductase. This hormonal process happens in both males and females. For several years, researchers thought androgenetic alopecia (or male and female pattern baldness) was caused by the predominance of testosterone but it is now believed that DHT is the main offender.
DHT shrinks hair follicles, making it impossible for healthy hair to survive. Although women tend to have only a fraction of the level of testosterone that men have, DHT triggered hair loss can still occur. Levels of DHT can rise and still be within what doctors consider “normal”, even though they are high enough to cause a problem. People can also be overly sensitive to “normal” levels of hormones and may experience DHT triggered hair loss as a result.
So is there a way of reducing the amount of DHT in your body? The most common medication prescribed to inhibit the production of DHT with the hope of preventing hair loss is Finasteride (brand names include Propecia and Prosar) but unfortunately, it is only FDA approved for treating male pattern baldness. There are also several unwanted side effects of using this medication including confusion, cold sweats and decreased sexual desire. Luckily, there is a natural alternative to Finasteride which can be used by both men and women! In the 70s, French scientists discovered that properties within the Saw Palmetto Cactus reduce the body’s ability to produce the enzyme that converts testosterone to DHT. The Saw Palmetto Cactus grows wild in Florida and other states along the Atlantic Coast, where it was long used by Native Americans as an herbal medicine.
Today, Saw Palmetto derivatives can be found on the shelves of many vitamin shops. Quality and price depend on the part of the plant that’s used – berries, leaves or roots. BioMedic’s Permixon Complex uses the berries – these are the tiniest part of the plant and the most expensive to process. They are squeezed and tested for presence of the desired properties. The softgel capsules break down quickly in the digestive system allowing for optimum absorption and pumpkin seed enhances the strength and effectiveness of the supplement. 

Unfortunately because Saw Palmetto is an expensive extract with a very short harvest window, it too has become one of those affected by producers of adulterated supplements. In our previous blog post we mentioned that supplements which are not in a softgel form can not only be tampered with, but can also easily be produced at home.

According to an article on quality issues with Saw Palmetto, Steve Myers reports that: "several well-known distributors of Chinese ingredients were selling palm oil as saw palmetto, although saw palmetto does not grow in China." Steve continues on to report that "in 2003 the watchdog group tested a range of saw palmetto supplements from U.S. retail stores in 2003, finding several potential quality issues. While a few products contained less than the amount of saw palmetto shown in clinical trials as the effective daily dose (320 mg/d is commonly recommended), at least one product showed evidence of adulteration with undeclared oil.This is why we only use trusted, U.S. suppliers of this berry extract in our Permixon Complex; to ensure that our patients receive the right dose of the right supplement, always.

Hair Loss for Younger People in Certain Cultures?

Indians Losing More Hair Younger

A homeopathic hair clinic managing director, Akshay Batra, reported, "Hair loss has preceded 10 years in the last decade." The issue doesn't seem to affect them as much as you would think, however, they are simply spending lots of money on products to reverse baldness and hair loss. Many companies are now trying to market this issue and are bringing out dozens of new products to get more money out of these people suffering from hair loss. 
Mind you these are young men and women with hair loss. They are young and willing to try anything that will help reduce hair loss or baldness. This leads to a lot of unfortunate issues that we also have here in the United States, which is people scamming these desperate people. 
The good news is that there are companies like ours that use FDA approved methods that work to help you regain your hair and stop hair loss. I think that the more people open up about this topic and talk with a consultant, like our Joseph Olinger, then the easier it will be to find the real and the fake hair loss companies and we can weed out the fakes. If you are suffering from hair loss, no matter how old you are, or even how young, talk to our consultant and find out what we can do to help you regain your hair and stop hair loss for good. We are here to help and can answer any questions you may have about baldness or hair loss. Talk to us! Keep reading and following us for more updates and interesting posts to come from us!

New Market Trend In Hair Loss Today

Women Hair Loss Treatments Trending Today

It used to be that women didn't have hair loss. Well, they did, but they didn't discuss it openly. In the late 1990s, it was less than 10% of women who would go to an office that helped hair loss. Today that number has raised to as much as 60% of women now are looking for treatments for hair loss. The problem with that is the simple fact that almost every marketing campaign for hair loss is geared toward men. Women hair loss is not something that is openly discussed, and it makes women uncomfortable to need to ask about it. So instead, they go to the store looking for those advertised products and buy them, which often give them no result, 
The increase in number of women visiting a doctor for hair loss treatments is not in any way due to more women losing their hair, it is the fact that marketing campaigns have started focusing on women in their ads. They are showing that women lose their hair too, and it is not a bad thing to talk about. 
An important factor to keep in mind if you are considering hair loss treatments is to remember that there are multiple different treatments out there, as well as multiple methods. Be aware of what your choice in doctor does for treatment and be sire to research it before trying it. You also need to remember that not all treatments work for everyone. This is because every person is different and it varies based on a number of situations. 
Another important factor will be knowing that there are natural causes for women to have hair loss. These can be:
  • Pregnancy
  • Stress
  • Iron Deficiency 
  • Medications
The good news is that the above causes are typically temporary and won't be permanent for the most part. As I said before everyone is different. We would love to help you with a free consultation here at Biomedic so just give us a shout and we will do our best to help with your hair loss issue.

Hair Loss and Saw Palmetto, knowing the difference between the brands.

One of my clients suffering from hair loss, asked me recently, "How do I begin to make a choice between all of the saw palmetto products available?" It's a good question, as there are a variety of available for your hair loss treatments One of these options is our very own product, Permixon Complex! . There are powdered capsules, soft-gels, pressed tablets and more often 4-5 shelves of different products! So how are you supposed to sort through all these products to find the hair regrowth treatment for you?
Biomedic has had years of experience sorting through the various choices and it comes down to
several major differences. What is so different about Biomedic's brand product Permixon Complex? What are they?
There are five main differences of note between these hair loss products.

  • The first is extract from only the saw palmetto berry. This is the strongest bioavailable part of the plant.
  • Standardization. All plant growths produce different nutrient densities standardizing insures equal dosing in each soft gel cap.
  • Lab testing for toxic metal contamination. Faux products imported from outside the u.s. often are grown in contaminated soils.
  • Sourcing raw materials from only the southeastern united states prevents the introduction of palm oils and other close cousins of the saw palmetto plant.
  • Packaged in soft-gels only. 
  • est delivery system for liquids to pass through the stomach for delivery and absorption in the intestine. Far less excipients and binders than tablets and dry capsules. Not subject to the tampering that can occur with dry ingredients. Much harder to counterfeit.

Recent studies and reports from, American botanical assoc, The German commission E. and many other studies confirm that this herbal liquid,when properly formulated, can effectively reduce the internal conversion of T to DHT similarly to Propecia without the side effects and can be safely used by everyone against the battle of male hair loss as well as female hair loss.

In a recent print article published by The National Hair Journal, a new study conducted by the Department of Transportation reports that a fixation with one's hair now joins the list of serious distractions that drivers face daily.

Much like texting and driving, excessive grooming in the vehicles mirror causes one to shift their eyes away from the road and onto the object in which their attention is being directed.

Although it may seem like only a glance, those few moments of distraction are what contributes to 16% of all fatal crashes annually. In this same article, it was also noted that during this study by the Department of Transportation one driver was observed checking her hair in the mirror 7 times in the course of only 3 minutes! 

Fortunately that person was in a non-moving vehicle, but can you imagine if she had been in motion at the time?

In a report for CQResearchers David Hosansky stated that texting drivers took their eyes off the road for each text an average of 4.6 seconds which at 55 mph, means they were driving the length of a football field without looking. A FOOTBALL FIELD!

Biotin and it's Place in Hair Loss Treatments
Biotin is a water soluble B vitamin that is essential for health. Biotin helps to maintain healthy blood sugar levels, promote nail and hair strength, it supports cell growth, and it aids in the metabolism of fats and amino acids. Biotin is often recommended for strengthening the hair, skin and nails.  Because Biotin is water soluble, it cannot easily be stored in the body and must be obtained regularly to ensure the best hair quality.

Confirmed causes of Biotin deficiency include pregnancy and breastfeeding, undernourishment, extended use of antibiotics, as well as smoking (especially in women) and excessive consumption of alcohol.
Dr. Oz addresses a viewers question regarding Biotin in the following video.

To kick start your hair regrowth and to be able to maintain hair that has become weak, large doses of Biotin are necessary. A simple high dose tablet or capsule will not deliver its full payload to the target areas. Sub-lingual forms of Biotin are somewhat better but the best technology by far is the soft gel.
BioMedic provides a unique mega-dose Biotin supplement in liquid form contained within a soft gel. This soft gel technology surpasses other nutrition delivery systems that are taken orally because many tablets and capsules breakdown in the digestive system before adequate absorption can take place. Additionally, soft gel technology provides more accurate dosing without fillers and binders, it offers liquid doses, longer bio-availability and tamper-proof safety.  This is a important addition to your hair loss treatment arsenal!
Biotin helps in the production of fatty acids, and is essential in the healthy functioning of the “Krebs Cycle” in which energy is released from foods and transferred to the body for use. Unlike other Biotin supplements, these soft gels deposit the liquid mega dose directly in the intestines for maximum absorption. Ultimately, the key to receiving the benefit of the mega-dose you are taking is in the delivery system and the soft gel technology is the best way to ensure that you are getting the desired dose of the nutrient into your system.

So if you find yourself suddenly in need of a hair loss treatment, or hair loss solution, come check out our website and see what we have to offer you. Whether you are struggling with women hair loss, male hair loss, it doesn't matter, we are here to help you. 
Until next time!

Softgel Formulations, What are they and What makes them better for a Hair Loss Solution?
In short softgels are an advanced technology requiring sophisticated equipment only available to large FDA cleared labs. They are far more tamper proof, they will keep their liquid contents more fresh, and they deliver a full payload of the active ingredient(s) with far less binders and fillers than tablets or capsules. The most important fact to acknowledge is that they can not be manufactured or filled in someone’s basement or garage like many other forms of delivery. You can feel safer as your capsules will be an FDA approved hair loss solution. This is what we strive for with all our products, providing you with piece of mind, while  helping you with your hair regrowth, one step at a time.

The goal with each of the BioMedic brand formulas is to deliver the best results possible, not just sell a product. We don't want to make money of of a product that doesn't work, we want to help you rid yourself of hair loss and be able to feel good about yourself. Whether it be women's hair loss or men's hair loss we are here to help. The two nutritional supplements that we provide as part of our therapy are specifically targeted to improve the condition of your hair, and they are both liquids contained within softgels. 

Our next discussion will be about Biotin, what it is, the roll it plays in hair treatment, and why it is difficult to get a large dose to the target area. Following our Biotin discussion we will begin a dialogue about our Permixon complex; why it must be a liquid, and the roll it plays in the multi-therapeutic approach to saving your hair and providing a solution for hair loss. Until next time!
