WORRYING ABOUT LOSING YOUR HAIR?
WELL HERE ARE 5 WAYS TO PROTECT YOUR HAIR NATURALLY AND BOOST YOUR PRODUCTION.
It’s scientifically proven that nutrient deficiencies accelerate hair loss and negatively impact hormones. Knowing that testosterone is produced on a 24-hour cycle, and that many nutrients need replenishing daily as few are stored in the body, its essential that you pay attention to your recommended daily intake which can be challenging to consume with today’s sub optimal diets.
Here we walk you through the most common nutritional deficiencies that can negatively impact your hair – in all places! We’ll also give you natural ways to boost your testosterone levels and maximise your own hair production.
Male pattern baldness, also known as androgenic alopecia, affects approximately 80% of men and is the most common type of hair loss. Hair at the temples and on the crown slowly thin and eventually disappear. It can affect men of any age, but most commonly becomes apparent in men’s forties, although it can start many years before this but take time to become noticeable.
Healthy hair growth requires nutrients, vitamins, and minerals in abundance. If your body is not getting any of these via your diet, you are likely to experience hair loss.
People with vitamin-related hair loss may lose more than just the hair on their heads. Damage to hair follicles can also cause your beard, eyebrows, and lashes to shed amongst other places.
Whilst you can’t do much about genetics, the good news is you can do a lot to enhance your health by nourish your body at a cellular level and optimise your own natural production.
BOOST YOUR B's - Vitamins that is.
This powerhouse group of water-soluble vitamins cannot be stored by the body and need replacing daily for health. Yet many people do not meet their daily requirement, particularly vegetarians and vegans and deficiency of one of more is common.
Biotin is vital in maintaining the health of your hair and scalp. Lack of this vitamin can result in hair thinning and eventually even hair loss. Biotin may not be able to restore hair growth but may prevent hair loss.
Niacin (vitamin B3) plays a huge role in lustrous hair growth. It helps in boosting energy and enhancing blood flow to the scalp.
Finally, Vitamin B6, otherwise known as Pyridoxine, is an important member of the Vitamin B-complex family. It activates the enzymes and chemical reactions that start the metabolism of the hair proteins, keratin, and melanin, in the hair follicles. This makes the hair follicles get enough keratin and melanin, which promotes hair growth and hair renewal. It is also a critical for hormone production.
According to a research study from Pauling Institute of Oregon State University Linus, Vitamin B6 binds to the testosterone receptors and stops the formation of DHT. Due to this, natural hair growth is restored.
Vitamin B complex is made up of eight B vitamins that all work together to keep the body working optimally.

ZINC UP YOUR LIFE
Zinc is a crucial nutrient for healthy hair. It plays a vital role in cell and immune function and protein synthesis.
A deficiency of zinc is a key cause of brittle hair. Zinc also has a proven role in male fertility and testosterone production and is therefore a vital daily mineral to take.
Also included in all our blends at daily reference intake dosage.
SUNNY D ISN'T JUST GOOD FOR THE MOOD
Vitamin D – A powerhouse allrounder and common Winter deficiency
Vitamin D is a hormone not a vitamin confusingly but with that being known it’s not a huge surprise that is pays a key role in hormone related hair health. Thought to be one of the most common deficiencies in the UK, testing done on patients with alopecia areata have indicated lower levels of vitamin D in comparison with people who do not have alopecia.
We do know it plays a critical role in cell growth and stimulates old and new hair follicles. In addition, it enhances immune health and counters inflammatory responses that may cause poor hair growth. You can ensure you meet your daily reference intake of this using any of our blends.
PUT THE D.H.T IN YOUR D.I.E.T
We know how DHT negatively impacts hair health, therefore it makes sense to do everything you can to dampen down this response in the body. There are natural ingredients known to do this which may help to slow male pattern baldness and hair loss.
This is not news to team DNA! Our extensive research and scientific approach to all our product formulations have considered how important hair loss prevention is to men. With many nutrients in our blends having multi-faceted hormonal health benefits, they are an essential part of modern men’s daily defence against hormonal loss and imbalance.
Nettle, in our Silverback blend for men aged 40+, is nature’s way of inhibiting 5-alpha-reductase – the enzyme that converts testosterone to DHT offering the potential to block its production. It also has been included for its ability to dampen the negative impacts that oestrogen has on free testosterone.
Lycopene is a powerful antioxidant found in DNA’s Grey Fox blend for men aged 55+. Its role in prostrate health is well documented, and it offers even more benefits for its ability to inhibit DHT production and control skin sensitivity to DHT.
It’s the culminative approach of all the nutrients in our pioneering blends alongside our unique powder to liquid delivery format that makes DNA products the most innovative and effective natural hormonal health products on the market.
MINIMISE NEGATIVE LIFESTYLE FACTORS
Practicing a healthy lifestyle can help reduce DHT levels naturally. This includes regular exercise, cut back alcohol (which negatively impacts T levels), take time to rest, and do scalp exercises like massages to reduce tension and increase blood flow.
