Minoxidil vs Procapil (Procapil is used by Furkit)
When it comes to hair loss and hair thinning, it can be a daunting and a never-ending search for a product that actually works and doesn’t just claim to. Once finding a product that works it is difficult to ascertain if the ingredients are harmful and whether they carry any negative side-effects. Knowledge is power when it comes to your most favourite asset. Here is the difference between Minoxidil and Procapil. Keep your Fur!
Minoxidil is applied topically and is used for the treatment of hair loss. It is effective in helping promote hair growth in people with androgenic alopecia regardless of sex. About 40% of men experience hair regrowth after 3–6 months. Minoxidil must be used indefinitely for continued support of existing hair follicles and the maintenance of any experienced hair regrowth.
Minoxidil is generally well tolerated, but common side effects include burning or irritation of the eyes, itching, redness or irritation of the treated area and unwanted hair growth elsewhere on the body.
Severe allergic reactions may include rash, hives, itching, difficulty breathing, tightness in the chest, swelling of the mouth, face, lips, or tongue, chest pain, dizziness, fainting, tachycardia, headache, sudden and unexplained weight gain, or swelling of the hands and feet.
Temporary hair loss is a common side effect of minoxidil treatment. Manufacturers note that minoxidil-induced hair loss is a common side effect and describe the process as “shedding”.
Procapil is a new breakthrough formula that strengths hair and prevents hair loss naturally. Procapil combines vitaminated matrikine with apigenin and oleanolic acid to form 2 powerful functions that target the main areas of hair loss. The first function facilitates the communication of cells and holds these cells together in order to prevent the effects of DHT.
It is formed when the metabolism of androgen interacts with an enzyme named 5-alphareductase. It’s generally found in the prostate glands, testes, adrenal glands and hair follicles. When DHT reaches the dermal papilla cells-which divide and differentiate to form new hair follicles – it undermines the absorption of essential nutrients for healthy hair follicles. Fortunately, with scientific improvements, Procapil greatly reduces the effect of DHT on hair follicles.
The second function increases blood flow in the scalp which allows the hair to be well nourished, resulting in thickening of thin starving hair. Clinical studies have been under taken and have received astonishing results. The mitotic rate of cells increased in the root sheath after 2 weeks, which clearly indicated enhanced cell proliferation. Procapil activates a number of genes responsible for tissue repair mechanisms which proves that it provides protecting and repairing effects, keeping hair strong and healthy.
