The Power of Fatty Acids

The most powerful inhibitors of 5-Alpha Reductase known today, GLA and ALA take center stage in Revivogen's Scalp Therapy hair serum.

While ingredients like Saw Palmetto or Castor Oil are more well-known components that may treat hair loss, they actually are NOT the star players in Revivogen Scalp Therapy. The heavy lifting in our topical, leave-in serum is actually done by the fatty acids. That includes Gamma Linolenic Acid (GLA), Alpha Linolenic Acid (ALA), and Oleic Acid.

Those are some big, sciencey words but we’ll break it down. GLA (an Omega-6) can be found in substances like evening primrose oil and borage oil. ALA (an Omega-3) can be found in some oils derived from plant-based sources like flaxseed. Oleic Acid (an Omega-9) can be found in sea buckthorn seeds and durian fruit seeds.

I am a 27 year old male with mild to moderate thinning on my crown and have a bit of a “bald spot”.

Prior to using the scalp serum I could run my hands through my hair and have 20 or so hairs fall into the sink. My head also had the classic itch associated with DHT. As of now the itching has stopped and shedding had essentially ceased (other than a hair or two which is normal).

Very happy with these results.

Clinically Proven to Inhibit 5-Alpha Reductase

In several studies, these fatty acids have been individually proven to inhibit 5-Alpha Reductase, which is imperative to slowing down hair loss. You can view some of that academic research here.

Gamma Linolenic Acid (GLA), Alpha Linolenic Acid (ALA), Linoleic and Oleic Acid are essential fatty acids found in plant oils. These fatty acids have been individually proven to inhibit 5-Alpha Reductase. In fact, these are the most powerful inhibitors of 5-Alpha Reductase known today and not only they inhibit the Type II form of the 5-Alpha Reductase which other products like finasteride inhibit, but also the Type I form of the enzyme which is present in high concentrations in the scalp, sebaceous glands, and the skin. Additionally, GLA, ALA and Oleic acid have potent anti-inflammatory properties.

Many people hope that consuming Omega fatty acids in their diets will help prevent hair loss. Though there is some research that shows mild improvement in hair density with fish oil supplements, it isn’t as effective as a topical leave-in treatment like Revivogen Scalp Therapy. Additionally, the supplements can’t be taken with certain medications, can render birth control less effective, and can cause side effects like nausea, rashes, and a bad case of fish-breath.

Dr. Alex Khadavi sourced highly potent concentrations of these fatty acids to give Revivogen Scalp Therapy powerful DHT fighters. Combined with carrier ingredients and a unique formulation technique, it’s no surprise that for twenty years now, Revivogen has helped thousands of hair loss sufferers see a halt in shedding and increase in growth.
