FLORISENE - £17.95 FOR 90 TABLETS
Clinically supported unique formula to help maximise hair growth.
Chronic Telogen Effluvium (CTE) is the term used to describe excessive and persistent hair shedding. Research has shown that currently up to 33% report having less hair than 5 years ago, this amounts to a staggering 4.8 million women in the UK.
95% of hair loss cases in women can be divided into aetiological types:
· Genetic hairloss (male pattern or androgenetic hairloss) -20%
· Chronic Telogen Effluvium (CTE) – 80%
Florisene® is a clinically supported supplementation programme shown to help women with CTE. Research involving hundreds of women has shown that the major cause of CTE is low serum ferritin. This reflects the amount of ‘stored’ iron in the body. For some women, low ferritin levels results in gradual hair loss, the end result to the sufferer being a ‘thinner’ ponytail or less hair to clip back.
Low serum ferritin in women is now common due to reduced red meat consumption and menstrual blood loss in women of reproductive age. The good news is that research has shown that if the serum ferritin is raised above a certain point then normal hair growth re-establishes. This does not necessarily show up as anaemia and so CTE may occur with no other clinical signs or symptoms aside from hair shedding.
Florisene® is a clinically-relevant iron supplementation programme, consisting of a highly absorbable form of iron and a significant level of the essential amino acid L-Lysine, plus 2 other known iron-synergists, vitamin C and vitamin B12, plus biotin and selenium. Research indicates that low L-Lysine intakes may exacerbate a reduced ferritin level and clinical studies show that for some women ferritin levels will not improve without supplementary L-Lysine.
Take1-3 tablets daily for the first six months. Thereafter for maintenance purposes take 1 to 2 tablets daily. However for those who have heavy periods or who eat little or no red meat then 2 tablets may be required. Florisene ® should be taken with water half to one hour before food or on an empty stomach.
