There are two ways to get vitamins for hair growth you can try to eat right or you can buy hair loss vitamins online. We are here to help you determine what vitamins you may need for health hair growth or in the case of thinning hair and Alopecia areata (AA). Problem is there are a few natural nutrients like saw palmetto that work very well at stopping hair loss.
When taken as a Saw Palmetto extract clinical studies show that it can reduce DHT (dihydrotestosterone) and 5 alpha-reductase which are the main contributors to thinning hair. This harmful DHT blocks the receptor sites in the hair follicle that are required for the absorption nutrient from the blood earning the name “DHT Blocker”.
Saw Palmetto – Serenoa repens, Serenoa serrulata
So what is it? Well it’s a type of small palm plant also known as shrub palmetto that has fan-shaped leaves that have very sharp edges and can be found in warmer climates throughout the southeastern USA.
The many uses of Saw palmetto include treatments for, hair loss, low sperm count, low sex drive, bronchitis, diabetes, inflammation, migraine, and prostate cancer.
For hair loss specifically, this plant as an extract can block DHT which is a hormonal effects in the body that chokes hair follicle until they get thinner and eventually die off. This ingredient makes it vital to effectively treatment thinning hair loss.
What are Proven Vitamins for Hair Growth?
Basically there are many different types and brands of hair loss treatment options out there online these days but only about 85% of these are actually proven with real clinical studies to backup their effects. For example Saw Palmetto for hair growth has been 3rd party clinically tested to prevent follicle miniaturization (thinning hair) and help to restore thicker fuller hair.
A Review of the Saw Palmetto Hair Loss Study
Because Saw palmetto clinical studies have shown promise it’s been used as a herbal medicine to treat enlarged prostate originally hair loss vitamins that contain it should only be taken by men. Fact is there are more than 4 million North American men using some for of Saw Palmetto for enlarged prostate issues as recommended by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). There is research that indicated Saw Palmetto can improve hair density, but substantial or abundant testing is limited although future research is always being conducted to determine it’s full potential.
A small saw palmetto clinical research study demonstrated how well it could treat thinning hair conditions for both men or women, resulting in positive results for six out of the 10 volunteers involved. Those males with moderate cases of male pattern baldness were given a 1500mg saw palmetto extract in oral supplement form to take twice daily for a 3 months. Once completed the men had to rate their balding patterns before and after the study and a whopping 60% reported that their thinning hair condition had noticeable improved.
In addition there are other studies showing that the mechanisms triggered by Saw Palmetto to interfere with dihydrotestosterone binding to the androgen receptor of the hair follicle causes a relaxing of smooth muscle tissue preventing the DHT from clogging the follicle.
Taking daily vitamins that contain saw palmetto hair loss can be reversed quickly.
Proper Saw Palmetto Hair Loss Dosage
The standard saw palmetto dosage is 320 mg twice a day but many manufactures online far exceed this daily dosage with many more positive customer experiences with results they have seen. In the soft gel supplement form they are much easier to swallow and they they are absorbed in the body faster, ensuring you will receive the maximum benefits each time you take it. I found that many of the consumer reviews and feedback I received were positive regarding gel capsules use.
Are There Saw Palmetto Hair Loss Side Effects
Saw palmetto extract is made from an all natural herb and is considered to be safe for adult men but it’s not recommended for children under that age of 18. Some of the reported mild side effects include mild headaches and mild stomach pains but these can further reduce when the supplements are taken with meals.
Saw palmetto may also cause thin the blood resulting in excessive bleeding during surgery or accidents so it best to consult a health care professional before taking these types of supplements. we do know that reactions may occur between saw palmetto and some prescription medications and it’s been shown to thin the blood, it should never be taken simultaneously with other blood thinners such as aspirin and prescriptions like warfarin.
The Best Saw Palmetto Hair Loss Vitamins
Provillus for Men – Most Popular
There are a few really effective formulas that contain Saw Palmetto as a key ingredient to combat hair loss and can provide the hair follicles with an optimized amount of all natural vitamins and minerals to get hair back to being thick and healthy hair again. Provillus for men contains 1500mg of Serenoa Repends (Saw Palmetto), which at this strength and when used with other key ingredients that help it work better can not only stop sudden hair fall it can prevent future hair loss while increasing the rate of hair growth.
You can buy Saw Palmetto supplements at an affordable and reasonable cost online or in health food stores BUT for maximum results it works best with additional ingredients such as Biotin and vitamin B6. For this reason we always suggest that you take advantage of the benefits of the treatment Provillus for men without resorting to any expensive transplant surgery.
If you live in the USA then Provillus is a two part system that contains an FDA-approved active topical ingredient called Minoxidil 5% you may also know this ingredient by the brand name of Rogaine . This topical serum also contains more effective ingredients like alcohol, propylene glycol, purified water, and the 100% all natural hair growth vitamins contain a blend of minerals and herbs that stop thinning hair very quickly.
Provillus Ingredients List
The main reason that Provillus is so popular is the fact that it does work and customers who have used have contacted me directly to tell me how happy they are with their results. Even though the Provillus for men contains 1500mg of Saw Palmetto it the blend with other ingredients that makes it work so well.
You will notice that out of all the different hair loss treatment available on the market the really popular ones (because they work) will contain ingredients like Biotin, Vitamin B6, Zinc, Saw Palmetto and Uva-Ursi that have been clinical proven to directly and positively contribute to faster hair growth and regrowth. You cannot grow thicker hair without these natural ingredients reaching the hair follicles.
Minoxidil aka Rogaine is the active ingredient in the Provillus topical serum and it became available after FDA approval in 1996 as a 2% solution. By 1998, it was available in the Provillus treatment as a 5% solution but will not ship to countries like Canada as the Minoxidil topical serum is restricted at the 5% strength levels due to adverse side effects regulated by Health Canada which include increased blood pressure and irritation of the scalp.
Getting Provillus in Canada
Your not out of luck just yet! Although Minoxidil 5% is restricted in Canada to a prescription, you can still buy the Provillus pills in Canada which are the most important part of the system, mainly because they contain the Saw Palmetto hair loss vitamin.
Without the Provillus for men pills you cannot block the DHT from binding to the follicles choking them off and causing them to shrink and die off so this is why I say the vitamins in the pills are the most important part of the system.
So why do people use the Minoxidil topical? The main purpose of the Minoxidil is the stimulate blood flow in the scalp so that it (the blood) can transfer the nutrients (like Saw Palmetto) to the hair follicle to stimulate growth. Really… what is the point of stimulating blood flow if there are inadequate nutrients being supplied. You MUST use hair loss vitamins to stimulate hair growth.

Some Real Saw Palmetto Hair Loss Reviews
From Shailendraon January 31, 2011 – “I started to use this product in early 2010 and still using it but stopped using it in the middle of the year and my hair started to fall off very rapidly.. Now I have started to use it again but I am quite sure now that it stops your hair from falling, but does not RE GROW the hair which have been lost.”
From Kenneth on September 11, 2014 – “The fist time i purchased this in a complete set with the minoxidil it worked like magic. I stopped taking it and i regret it everyday because my hair fell out worse and it never grew back after i repurchased it and tried it again. once you start you cant stop.”
From MVB on September 5, 2014 – “I bought this product for my husband without a lot of expectations…and it surprised me, here are the facts:
Pros: After using it for 3 months twice daily, I can say it worked, you could tell that he had 30% more hair in that spot. It wasn’t magic, it took time and he had still a lot to achieve, but it worked.
Cons: It leaves a super greasy film in the scalp that lasts for at least 3 hours, pitifully when he realized that, he stopped using it in the morning as he was complaining that it was embarrassing to go to work like that, from that moment on the treatment got scattered and he started using it maybe 4 times a week only by night. Long story short he is exactly in the same spot as when he began or worse.
So if you are committed to follow the instructions accurately and have patience, give it a try, it does work. But if you are not, don’t lose your time, because you won’t see any results.”
