azelaic acid

Revivogen is a new hair loss product for use in for Men and Women, whose ingredients have been shown to rival Propecia's effectiveness without the discomfort of side effects.

What is Revivogen?

Revivogen is a product suite including a "Bio-Cleansing Shampoo" and a "Scalp Therapy Formula".  This product was created with the thought in mind that if all known natural DHT inhibitors were compiled into one solution, the follicles could be saved.  Since no significant amount is absorbed systemically like Propecia, there are no side effects, and it can be used safely by both men and women.

 Did you say it rivals Propecia?

Yep and it is supported by very scientific studies published in very prestigious medical journals. The ingredients used in the Revivogen formula have been proven to be more potent and more effective in inhibiting 5AR when compared to Finasteride (Proscar or Propecia). When Finasteride is only able to inhibit type II 5AR activity about 70%, the main active ingredient in Revivogen can equally inhibit both type I and II 5AR up to 98%. Additionally Revivogen has another active ingredient which has been proven to prevent DHT's attachment to its receptors on the follicle, providing additional protection against DHT.

The most impressive thing is that all of these ingredients are natural and only have a local effect and unlike Propecia they don't effect the blood levels of DHT therefore can have no systemic side-effects.

Did you say its for use in both Men and Women?

Right again!  A comment from the makers of Revivogen:  

"It is a scientific and medical fact that Male/Female Pattern Hair Loss is due to the effects of Dihydrotestostrone (DHT) on the genetically predisposed follicles. Binding of DHT to the follicle results in gradual miniaturization and eventual hair loss. Propecia®, the leading hair loss medication, works by inhibiting 5-alpha-reductase (the enzyme that produces DHT). By reducing DHT production, hair loss is prevented and eventually reversed. However, Propecia® is associated with many side effects and can not be used by women.

The patent pending Revivogen™ Formula is made with the most potent, all natural Anti-DHT ingredients known today. Revivogen's ingredients have been scientifically proven to reduce DHT production. Revivogen has no side effects and is safe for use by women as well as men".

Revivogen Progress Report - Steven Caprio

How long on Revivogen? Since January 2000 (9 months)
What other treatments are you using? I use 5% Rogaine for about 1 1/2 years now. It hadn't given me any new growth and probably kept me from losing any though. I also use Proscar for about 1 year. No results with that either.
What type of hair loss do you have? I had pretty extensive thinning along the entire top and crown, with a tuft in the front unchanged. I wore a hair replacement for 10 years to hide this fact.
What is your age? 46
What kind of results have you seen? I've had dramatic results with Revivogen (really!) The entire top has filled in with complete coverage and the crown has a thinner complete cover, which is getting coarser and thicker every month. The hair that I had that was thinning was very fine. Now it is darker and way thicker in diameter. I had several shedding phases 4 months ago. I think I was just getting rid of the older shrunken diameter hairs and new coarser hairs came back to take their place. I would be willing to have pictures taken if you don't show my face. I have some before pictures before Revivogen. My only complaint, although I'm really not as bothered by it now was itching. It used to itch quite a bit. Now it has calmed down to not that noticeable. I have a theory though. I think the itching is a good thing. It caused me to massage my hair 5-10 times a day vigorously. That took the itching away and it could be a coincidence but, with that massage the growth escalated in about 2 months to where my wife was amazed. I use Toppik in the crown and I'm thinking I may not have to use that in a year or so.

The Evidence...
Recently an article was published by a man by the name of Bryan Shelton, who did a very in depth study on the ingredients in Revivogen.  He found that Revivogen combined with other products could produce an effect as beneficial as Propecia, only for both men *AND* women. Also available, is the full page Question/Answer session our members had with the makers of Revivogen.

What's in it?

The active ingredients of Revivogen™ are natural compounds proven to be potent inhibitors of 5-Alpha-Reductase, the enzyme that produces DHT. These active ingredients include Gamma Linolenic acid (GLA), Alpha Linolenic acid (ALA), Linoleic Acid, Azaleic acid, Vitamin B6, Zinc, and Saw Palmetto Extract. New research has shown that GLA, ALA, Linoleic Acid and Azaleic Acid are the most powerful inhibitors of 5-alpha-reductase, the enzyme that produces DHT. Revivogen™ is the only product that contains GLA, ALA, and Azelaic Acid in one easy to use topical formula. In addition, the combination of these powerful ingredients with Linoleic Acid, Vitamin B6, Zinc Sulfate and Saw Palmetto Extract has resulted in the most potent natural anti-DHT formula available today. 

GLA, ALA, and Linoleic Acid
Gamma Linolenic Acid (GLA), Alpha Linolenic Acid (ALA), and Linoleic Acid are essential fatty acids found in plant oils. GLA, ALA, and Linoleic Acid have been individually shown to inhibit 5-Alpha Reductase. In fact these are the most powerful inhibitors of 5-Alpha Reductase known today. In addition, not only they inhibit the Type II form of the 5-Alpha Reductase which other products like Propecia® inhibit, but also the Type I form of the enzyme which is present in high concentrations in the scalp and the skin.

Azelaic Acid, Vitamin B6 and Zinc
Azelaic acid is a naturally occurring dicarboxylic acid found in whole grain cereals, rye, and barley and animal products. It is FDA approved as a topical preparation for treatment of acne and is effective against a number of other skin conditions when applied topically. There is strong scientific evidence that Azelaic Acid and Zinc are potent inhibitors of 5-Alpha-Reductase. When Azelaic acid, Vitamin B6 and Zinc Sulfate where added together at very low concentrations, 90% inhibition of 5 Alpha-Reductase activity was obtained. The synergistic activity of these compounds against 5-Alpha-Reductase makes this combination very effective in treatment of male pattern baldness. 

By combining GLA, ALA, Linoleic Acid, Azelaic acid, Vitamin B6, Zinc Sulfate and Saw Palmetto extract, they have created a natural yet extremely powerful anti-DHT formula. These ingredients work through different mechanisms to synergistically inhibit both type 1 and 2 forms of 5-Alpha Reductase and decrease DHT locally. By decreasing the DHT levels, follicles can grow and thicken naturally, leading to a fuller, healthier scalp without the side effects associated with synthetic drugs. 

Saw Palmetto Extract
Saw palmetto has been extensively studied over the past several years for the treatment of enlarged prostate in men ( BPH ). Saw Palmetto extract which is a known anti-androgen is the liposerolic extract of the fruit of Saw Palmetto. 

Saw Palmetto has shown to effectively block the formation of DHT and is also believed to prevent the binding of dihydrotestosterone (DHT) to androgen receptors which are also found at the follicles. Like GLA and ALA it also blocks Type 1 and Type 2 forms of 5 alpha-reductase and has shown to be more potent than Finasteride. (Published Studies)
