Hair loss is a dynamic and multi-factorial issue related to substantial female psychological morbidity. A large number of those affected are menopausal women, because menopausal hormone transformation may be a contributing factor. In order to enhance hair growth and quality in menopausal wome, a new nutraceutical supplement was specifically formulated with phytoactives to improve hair growth and quality in menopausal women (Nutrafol® Women’s Balance Capsules).

The objective of this 6-month, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study was to assess the safety and efficacy of this oral supplement to promote hair growth in perimenopausal, menopausal, and postmenopausal women with self-perceived thinning. Subjects were randomized to the study supplement (n=40) or placebo (n=30). The primary endpoint was a statistically significant increase in the number of terminal and vellus hairs based on phototrichogram analysis.

Daily intake of the nutraceutical supplement resulted in progressive and significant increase in terminal and total hair counts on days 90 and 180 compared to placebo. The vellus hair counts significantly increased for the active treatment group by day 180 while significantly decreasing for the placebo group subjects. Hair shedding progressively and significantly decreased for the active group compared to placebo, culminating in a reduction of 32.41% by day 180.

The results of this study demonstrate the ability of a novel nutraceutical supplement with bio-optimized phytoactive ingredients to safely and effectively improve hair growth and quality in perimenopausal, menopausal, and postmenopausal women with thinning hair. The number of total, terminal, and vellus hair counts, and hair shedding all significantly improved compared to placebo. Investigator global ratings for hair growth and quality were significantly higher for subjects in the active treatment group compared to placebo. The supplement was found to be well-tolerated, safe, and easily incorporated into daily routines.
