Hair loss affects many women during menopause, as do other symptoms related to hormonal imbalance. Even so, hair loss has a special status because it specially affects women self-esteem: since for most people, a full head of hair is sign of beauty and femininity. Luckily, Maca can help to reverse this menopause symptom.
How Does Hair Loss Happen?
Estrogen and testosterone are key to the process of hair growth. Estrogen promotes healthy hair growth, thicker long lasting hair, which stays on the scalp for longer periods. On the other hand, testosterone triggers hair loss in order to give space for new hair to grow.
Normally, women loss around 100 – 150 strands of hair per day, but menopause causes estrogen levels to fall and /or testosterone levels to rise, therefore women may lose more hair than they’re able to replace. As a result hair may appear thin, and in some cases, bald patches may appear, especially on the top of the head. This female pattern hair loss is known as androgenetic alopecia.
Why Maca Reverses Hair Loss
Maca nourishes and stimulates the endocrine system, allowing each hormone-producing gland to work efficiently and in harmony. Once estrogen and testosterone hormones are restored to their appropriate levels, hair growth will resume, and hair loss will usually stop. Over time, hair that was already shed will regrow as well, and the full head of hear will go back to what it once was.
Moreover, adding to the hormonal balance, the Maca’s many essential minerals and other nutrients, and those are combined with some lifestyle changes and a few adjustments to hair care routine, hair loss will be halted and reversed.
