I never set out to learn a single thing about my prostate, but kept running into information about it everytime I tried to learn more about hair loss. That made me wonder what the connection was between the two.
I was reading about saw palmetto and stinging nettle for hair loss prevention when I started finding more information on prostate problems than hair loss. It seemed every natural ingredient I check on for hair loss control also was listed as an ingredient for prostate health, with more information on prostate treatment.
I finally found the connection when I read about the prostate function on Wikipedia. It mentions briefly the prostate function is controlled by dihydrotestosterone, or DHT, which is also listed as the major culprit in causing male baldness. You can read the Wikipedia page here, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Prostate# - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Prostate#Function, if you are curious.
I started trying to figure out if the ingredients in this product, http://www.amazon.com/Vibrance-Vitamins-Vegetarian-Capsules-ula/dp/B00G6U4ZI6/ - http://www.amazon.com/Vibrance-Vitamins-Vegetarian-Capsules-Formula/dp/B00G6U4ZI6/, were effective for hair loss or not. The more I dug the more intrigued I got by the odd connection.
I cannot find conclusive proof that all the ingredients work to reverse hair loss, but the idea that it can both help my hair loss and improve prostate health is very interesting. It was interesting to note that Propecia is a prostate drug that helps grow hair, which seems to verify the connecton, again. I do not think there is any similar connection for Rogaine, unless blood pressure affects prostate health, too.
I prefer natural over prescription, so am going to try the natural solution. Have any of you ran into that same connection in your studies?
