If you’re in your mid-forties or beyond, chances are you’ve experienced at least some of the hormonal changes that begin to occur when menopause is on the horizon. These include things like night sweats, hot flashes, mood swings, vaginal dryness, facial hair growth, and perhaps most annoyingly, thinning hair and even hair loss.
It doesn’t seem fair that nature starts helping us grow mustaches at the same time the hair on our heads is turning gray, becoming brittle, and falling out. Luckily, we don’t have to sit back and take it. Nutrafol Women’s Balance ($88 for a one-month supply) is a supplement created just for women ages 45 and up, who are experiencing changes in their hair due to perimenopause or menopause.
“We created Nutrafol Women’s Balance with added ingredients to balance shifting hormones during this pivotal time in a women’s life,” says Dr. Sophia Kogan, MD, co-founder of Nutrafol.
These ingredients include saw palmetto, which helps prevent testosterone (a small amount of which naturally occurs in women’s bodies) from turning into dihydrotestosterone (DHT), the hormone responsible for male pattern baldness. Another ingredient, maca, is an adaptogen known to support hormone health before, during, and after menopause.
Nutrafol Women’s Balance is recommended for women who’ve noticed a widened part, receding hairline, excessive facial hair growth, and even irregular periods (which are common leading up to menopause). In a clinical study, after six months of use, 100 percent of participants reported visible improvement in hair growth, and 80 percent said they were losing less hair. They also said their hair was stronger, thicker, and covered more of their scalps.
While there are many ways to deal with thinning hair, including essential oils and special shampoos, Nutrafol Women’s Balance gets to the root cause of hair loss, and helps ease other bothersome symptoms of menopause as well. What’s not to love about that?
