Chemicals May Not Be Necessary to Fight Non Genetic Balding and Hair Loss

Propecia works great for some individuals, but its side affects are a major consideration. Propecia or Proscar or Finacars major active ingredient is finasteride, an anti-androgen 5-alpha reductase inhibitor that seeks to block DHT. Although it requires a prescription, it can work just as well as Rogain, which is its over-the-counter chemical counterpart. Individuals suffering from hereditary hair loss who cannot afford a hair transplant may seek Propecia as a solution to stop their hair loss. Although, neither Rogain nor Propecia will total enable you to re-grow a full head of hair, Propecia can result in some modest gains.

The side effects of using Propecia are really bad, however, sexually active men. They make it difficult achieve an erection, decrease your amount of semen, and cause testicular pain. The other clinically reported side effects of the product, according to Propecia are: rashes, itching, hives and swelling of the lips and face; problems with ejaculation; breast tenderness and enlargement; breasts lumps, and nipple discharges.

Due to these side effects, many people who are seeking to grow their thinning hair have switched to alternative herbs and natural products. Based on a study of 150 middle-aged men and women in the United Kingdom, Beauty 4 Ashes Christian Co.s Super Gro System was an instant winner concerning long-term health and hair growth results. Their A Double Portion Super Gro System, contains the herb Saw Palmetto, which has the same benefits of Propecia without the side effects. The products in the system also contain rosemary, ylang ylang and castor Oil, in addition to the saw palmetto, which lowers the levels of DHT in the body by blocking 5 alpha-reductase, similar to Propecia.  In addition, Beauty 4 Ashes Super Gro Systems Ayurvedic Scalp Gel, contains Fenugreek, Saw Palmetto & Amla Oil. This combination of nutrients also block the receptor sites on cell membranes required for cells to absorb DHT. You can find more about their products online at wwwdiscoverb4acom

If at all possible, use Propecia as your last option and not your first. The benefits can outweigh the cost depending on how much you value your appearance. Remember, there are non-chemical alternatives that exist; such as Beauty 4 Ashes Super Gro System, which dont require a doctors prescription.
