French hair loss treatment hits shelves

24-Mar-2005

French hair loss treatment Alphactif is being launched onto the US market following its success in Europe. The all-natural formula will be available in outlets through the US from April, reports Simon Pitman.

Imported into the country by Hello Imports, which will be the sole distributor, the formula is currently the top selling natural hair loss treatment in Europe, according to manufacturer Laboratoires Natural Scientific .

Launched as two separate product lines - Alphactif for Men and Alphactif Nutritif, which is aimed at both men and women.

 

Produced in France and Belgium and developed by Gil Mennetrey at the Laboratoires Natural Scientifc, these products claim to be scientifically designed to halt hair loss and rejuvenate hair from the inside out. The manufacturers say that effectiveness has been proven under clinical studies and that there are no known side effects due to the treatments natural ingredient.

 

Rather than inhibit the hormones that cause hair loss, Alphactif for Men is a dietary supplement containing active vegetable components and vitamins that prevent severe hair loss by supplying the hair follicles with the nutrients necessary for optimal hair growth and protecting them from hormonal or immunological activity and inflammation.

 

Alphactif for Men is comprised solely of pumpkin seed oil, borage seed oil, urtica dioica root extract, zinc, vitamin B6, Vitamin E and soy lecithin.

 

Equally as effective and suitable for both men and women, Alphactif Nutritif works on four different levels to stop hair loss, increase hair growth, improve hair strength and protect hair cells with active anti-oxidants.

 

Containing marine proteins from fish and shark cartilage, sulfur amino acids, eight essential vitamins (A, B2, B3, B5, B6, B9, and Biotin) and three important trace elements, zinc, copper and selenium, Alphactif Nutritif is highly effective and without any known side-effects.

 

The company says that the clinical trials, conducted independently by the Laboratoires Spincontrol in Tours, France, between January and July last year, included 32 men and 32 women who were all suffering from hair loss in a double blind test.

 

Trichogram testing proved that amounts of anagen phase hair improved in both men and women taking Alphactif for Men and Alphactif Nutritif, while it decreased in the control group. Those taking the products also reported improved hair vitality and strength during the 90 day test.

 

Both Alphactif for Men and Alphactif Nutritif are priced at $64.99 for 60 tablets.
