When Treasured Locks
decided to provide a hair growth supplement for men (hair growth
vitamin for men), we decided that, as with all of our other products,
we wouldn’t be satisfied until we could deliver the very best
product on the market, at an affordable price. We are confident that
our Ajuvén Hair Growth Stimulator is the most advanced hair
vitamin supplement available for men. More than just a hair vitamin for
men, our product is a natural blend of high quality time-released
vitamins, herbs, minerals, protein and nutritional supplements. Modern
living can exact a toll on the body and hair.Stress, poor diet (often
caused by eating on the run) and even pollution can harm your hair. Our
Ajuvén Growth Stimulator is designed to give your hair the
best nourishment possible from anon-prescription product. As we get
older, for many of us, our hair naturally thins and grows more slowly.
Nutritional supplements improve the growth of these structures at the
only time it can be done, while they are still in your body being
A Few Key Ingredients:
- Time Released Vitamin B Complex
- Time Released Vitamin C
- Saw Palmetto
- Amino Acids
While each of the ingredients on its own is important, the key to our
hair vitamin for men is the synergy created by the precise blending of
the ingredients. Some nutrients, taken alone, can actually block the
benefits of others. Many nutrients work better in combination with
others. Our supplement has been designed to provide the best balance of
Following is a list of our ingredients and the role each plays in
returning your hair to it absolute best condition.
(Methylsulfonylmethane) You may have heard about MSM. It
has received a lot of attention as a"super nutrient" over the past few
years. MSM is an organic sulfur compound. It is contained naturally in
food. MSM is found in most fresh(raw) fruits, green vegetables, milk,
meat, seafood and some grains. In its pure form, it is a white,
odorless, tasteless powder. However, MSM is volatile. In foods, MSM is
often destroyed by over processing.Unless you eat a lot of raw food, it
is quite possible that you will not get sufficient quantities of MSM to
contribute to your sulfur requirement.The vitamins and amino acids
included in our H2G Hair Growth Supplement work with MSM to repair and
create healthy cells. MSM is rapidly absorbed into the body (the good
news). But, it is rapidly turned over in the body, also (the not so
good news). Therefore, it is important to get the right amounts on a
very regular basis. Any excess MSM is rapidly eliminated from the body
and numerous studies (including longterm studies) show no known side
effects. MSM has been widely used as a dietary supplement for a long
time. The first patents issued for MSM as a dietary supplement were in
1985 and 1986.
extract is the most popular herbal supplement for the promotion of
prostate health in Europe. The prostate drug finasteride (sold under
the brand name of PropeciaTM) has been shown to
regrow hair on men with male pattern balding. Propecia is one of the
very few drugs actually FDA approved to make the claim of growing hair.
Finasteride was initially developed and used to treat prostate disease.
Research has shown that the herb Saw Palmetto has the same effects as
finasteride in treating patients with benign prostate enlargement.
Studies have shown that saw palmetto is an effective anti-androgen. It
acts in a way similar to Propecia. Saw Palmetto lowers levels of DHT in
the body by Blocking 5alpha-reductase. Saw Palmetto also blocks
receptor sites on cell membranes required for cells to absorb DHT.
Although no studies have been carried out on saw palmetto and its
relation to hair growth.Studies have been performed on the use of Saw
Palmetto in the treatment of benign prostatic disease which similar to
Androgenetic Alopecia(male pattern baldness) also depends on the
production of dihydrotestosterone(DHT). It is reasonable to assume that
since Saw Palmetto is an effective antiandrogen may be effective in the
treatment of Androgenetic alopecia. DHT is a derivate of testosterone
but is many times more potent. Hair follicles that are sensitive to DHT
tend to stop growing hair when exposed to this powerful
hormone.Finasteride is a powerful drug that is available by
prescription only.Finasteride is not available for use by women. The
broken pills should not even be handled by women who may become
pregnant. So, women who are suffering from androgenic alopecia do not
have this treatment available to them. If women are exposed to
finasteride, it can cause birth defects in unborn male babies. It can
cause sexual problems in men on the medication. So, if a safe, herbal
alternative could be found, this would be a great find.
a herb derived from the bark of the African evergreen, which inhibits
the enzyme5-alpha-reductase reaction that is widely believed to lead to
a common type of hair loss. Pygeum Africanum is widely used in Europe
to prevent and treat prostate problems and to prevent and treat male
pattern baldness. While saw palmetto extract is the far better known
herbal medication, Pygeum Africanum may in fact, in many cases, be
superior for the treatment of the condition. The effects if Pygeum
Africanum are similar to the effects of Saw Palmetto detailed elsewhere
in this paper.
Grape Seed Extract
contains flavonoids OPCs, which offer powerful antioxidant protection.
The flavonoids in Grape Seed Extract quench free radicals and
potentiate other antioxidants like Vitamin E and Vitamin C. One in
vitro study showed that the flavonoids in Grape Seed Extract prolonged
the lifespan of Vitamin C by 400 percent. Another in vitro study showed
that exposing blood vessel linings to pine bark OPCs (similar to Grape
Seed Extracts) boosted their vitamin E content by 15 percent. Grape
seed has also shown recycling and potentiating effects. Green Tea helps
influence serum concentrations of hormones. It has been associated with
higher levels of sex hormone binding globulin (SHBG), which binds with
high affinity to testosterone. When testosterone binds to SHBG, it is
made inactive and cannot bind to androgen receptors or be converted
into DHT. Again, DHT is one of the major causes of a very common type
of hair loss (alopecia).
(Beta Carotene) is essential to hair growth. This is because
beta-carotene is converted to vitamin A, as the body needs it. Vitamin
A helps maintain normal growth and bone development, protective
sheathing around nerve fibers, as well as promoting healthy skin, hair
and nails. Vitamin A helps produce healthy sebum in the scalp. A
deficiency in Vitamin A will cause dry hair and rough skin.
Vitamin C is
essential for over300 metabolic reactions in the body, Vitamin C is one
of the most common supplements in the world. And there is a good reason
for that.Vitamin C is easily passed through the body by urination.
Other factors that can lead to Vitamin C deficiency include poor diet
and smoking.Vitamin C deficiency manifests itself in many ways, but one
of the most common ways is dry and brittle hair and skin. An important
antioxidant,Vitamin C helps maintain good circulation, flushes toxins
from the body and improves the immune system; all of which helps with
strong, healthy hair. We include a time-released form of Vitamin C to
keep your body supplied throughout the day.Copper is an essential
component of melanin, the pigment in hair and skin. In cases where gray
hair is caused by a copper deficiency, taking copper may restore hair
to its natural color. Amino acids are small pieces of proteins. These
are the building blocks from which most living tissue is derived.
Copper is vital for promoting healthy hair growth and a healthy scalp.
Copper can help stimulate dormant hair follicles.
B Complex Vitamins
The B-Complex vitamins are used to create healthy cells in every part
of the human body–especially those involved in metabolic
reactions, skin and circulation. Vitamin B Complex is a very large
family of nutrients that play many roles in the healthy functioning of
your body. In our formula, we have included all of the B complex
vitamins you need for healthy hair and skin. The deficiency of B
vitamins can lead to hair loss, weak hair and loss of hair color. We
include time released formulations to provide you with the proper
amounts of Vitamin B during the day and to prevent
“flushing” which can happen with large doses of
non-time released Vitamin B.The B Vitamin Complex may strengthen hair,
act as a hair and scalp conditioner, and slow down hair loss. Biotin
may even stimulate new hair growth if the hair loss can be traced to a
biotin deficiency.Another B vitamin,
PABA(para-aminobenzoic acid) may
protect hair roots and help prevent hair loss. It can also reverse
graying in cases where the cause is a deficiency of PABA or other B
is an essential nutrient, part of the B-vitamin family; that plays a
key role informing new cells within the body. There have been studies
that show that folic acid may aid in the body’s ability to
absorb Vitamin B12 and zinc. is cells; it is easy to see how important
folic acid is to the hair growth process.
is a naturally occurring essential nutrient that is usually found in
milk, red meats,fish, poultry and eggs. Vitamin B12 is essential to the
human body’s ability to absorb other nutrients as well as
maintaining healthy red blood cells.
been referred to as Vitamin H. But, Biotin is really a part of the
Vitamin B Complex. The primary function of Biotin is to maintain
healthy hemoglobin levels,allowing the body to efficiently transport
oxygen to all parts of the body, including the tissues and cells
responsible for the growth of hair. Biotin is a proven hair growth
vitamin and a preventative to excessive hair loss. It appears to
metabolize fatty acids. Fatty acids are a valuable growth factor in
numerous processes in the body including the hair. Biotin is also seen
as an aid in preventing hair turning gray. Biotin deficiency can be
diagnosed by thinning hair,brittle nails and other skin disorders.
Folic acid, otherwise known as Vitamin B9, is critical for the body to
be able to produce adequate amounts of myelin. Myelin is now known to
be critical to the maintenance of healthy nails, skin and hair. While
taking B Vitamins will not restore permanently lost hair, proper B
vitamin intake may minimize the onset of hair loss in the first place.
Deficiency of PABA,Biotin, Folic Acid and Pantothenic Acid appears to
affect hair color.In those cases, hair color can normally be restored
by getting the proper amounts of these B vitamins. Even if hair color
is not restored,the hair can improve in quality and strength.
also a member of the B vitamin group. It is a compound occurring in the
brain, muscles,liver, kidney and eyes. In laboratory animals, a diet
lacking Inositol produced baldness, but when the vitamin was added to
the food of these animals, the hair grew back again. It was also
observed that male animals lost hair twice as fast as female animals.
The result of this experiment would suggest that males require a higher
Inositol intake than females. An Inositol deficient diet can also cause
eczema, a form of skin irritation.
also known as Calcium Pantothenate is important to the health of the
skin and scalp. Pantothenic acid is necessary for the well
being of every body cell and neither carbohydrate nor fat can be
changed into energy without it. Mega doses of Vitamin B5 may
help with control of acne.
Choline is a
B vitamin like nutrient that is helpful in countering the effects of
stress. Choline supplements prescribed to balding patients produced
significant results to prove choline's worth in hair loss. Inositol, a
B complex vitamin has a particular affinity with choline, these two
vitamins work together well.
people with poor diet, or those on a crash diet experience hair loss.
One of the reasons for this hair loss is zinc deficiency in the body.
Zinc is an essential mineral, vital for growth and development of all
the body’s systems. It is a major part of the synthesis of
DNA and RNA and aids in the production and processing of at least 42
vital enzymes in the body.Zinc is responsible for cell production,
tissue growth and repair, and the maintenance of the oil-secreting
glands of the scalp. It also plays a large role in protein synthesis
and collagen formation. For this reason, zinc is important for both
hair maintenance and dandruff prevention.Studies show that zinc may
protect hair follicles from excess DHT, the main factor in androgenic
(male) pattern hair loss. Zinc is often associated with hair regrowth
and used to help prevent and treat hair loss. Zinc has been shown to be
a potent inhibitor of 5 alpha-reductase activity. Vitamin B6, along
with zinc improves this activity.
works along with Zinc.In laboratory tests animals fed with a zinc
supplement showed signs of more hair growth, as opposed to loss of hair
in animals that were deprived of zinc in their feed. It was discovered
that there was a change in the hair protein structure when zinc was
deficient in the diet.Severe zinc deficiency in humans has been shown
to produce baldness and scalp problems that were reversed when zinc was
returned to the diet.Zinc is also believed to boost the immune system,
a great side effect.As with other essential nutrients, high stress
levels as well as a lack of the nutrient in the diet can cause zinc
Silica (Silicon Dioxide)
Studies in the former Soviet Union have shown that silica therapy
slowed hair loss.7 Silicon deficiency has been shown to reduce
maintenance of hair, skin and nail cells.
the major ingredient in hair itself. Your hair is at least 90 percent
protein. Other hair supplement systems require you to take several
amino acid (bits of protein) capsules throughout the day. While it is
possible that you could have a protein deficiency, the average American
diet provides plenty of protein. We have included the basic amino acids
we feel most people will get the most benefit from right in our one
pill. L-Cysteine(amino acid) speeds up hair growth and increases hair
shaft diameter, resulting in fuller hair. L-Cysteine has been reported
to facilitate longer hair growth. We have chosen to not make any
separate pills a mandatory part of our hair supplement regimen. By
doing this, we are able to accomplish two things. First, we can keep
the monthly cost of our regimen low. Our supplement is approximately
1/2 the cost of competing products. Second, because you do not have to
take multiple pills during the day, the regimen is easier to stick
with. The philosophy of “If a little is good, more is
better” does not apply to protein. Even though hair is made
of protein, too much protein does not make hair grow even faster. Think
of protein as the building block of hair, skin and nails. You need just
enough. But, if you have more than your body can use, the excess is
Vitamin E is
a powerful anti-oxidant that helps increase circulation. Vitamin E
increases oxygen uptake, which improves circulation to the scalp. It
improves overall health. Since hair health is tied to the immune
system, vitamin E is believed to stimulate hair growth by enhancing the
