FDA Regulations on Hair Restoration

The battle against baldness is nothing new. However, the fact that many are now winning this battle is something that has only dramatically improved in recent times. It finally appears that the exponential growth in enhancements in alternative medicine is finally outpacing the human evolutionary problem of hair loss. As men and women are evolving well into the twenty-first century and beyond, the anatomical necessity for hair is greatly dwindling. However, with recent discoveries, many of those ahead in the evolutionary trait of hair loss are able to reverse this issue. It is important, though, to realize the importance of the FDA's role in protecting people's health and safety.

Some have turned to herbal remedies for a cure for any form of alopecia, but even then, many of these herbal supplements must pass strict FDA approved testing and clinical trials. There are items that have some positive impact on preventing further shedding and can actually stimulate new follicle growth. Saw palmetto oil, as well as zinc and nettle, is very popular because of its overall impact on health. It has properties that help those suffering from alopecia, but saw palmetto also works to promote a healthy liver. Naturally, herbal medicines do not have the dramatic impact that pharmaceutical drugs or surgery may have, but upon use, there are less implications for negative side-effects.

Minoxidil is a popular drug utilized for slowing down, or curing, hair loss. However, it came to market for another purpose initially. Minoxidil was used as a blood pressure medication. Because of the affect this medication has on the bloodstream, it is favorable for those suffering from a receding hairline or early signs of baldness. Minoxidil improves nutrient delivery to the cells, especially for hair follicles, because of its influence on the bloodstream. It is also one of the few medical hair loss products that have remained on the market because of its positive track record with the FDA.

New scientific research is now much more focused around safety and conducting tests before bringing potentially harmful products to market. The FDA has always been stringent on allowing new products to reach the market, and the process for pharmaceutical companies to release new remedies is grueling and cumbersome. Just the idea of how time-consuming this process is alone turns away many from even attempting to discover new treatments.

An example of new science in hair loss treatments deals with something called follicular unit transplantation, or FUT. This differs from follicular unit extraction, or FUE, in that it does not deal with taking hair from other parts of the body to replace them on the top of the head. It actually deals with the core of the problem - your DNA. FUT is derived from stem cell research and actually deals with slight alterations in your DNA to prevent baldness or even re-grow a receding hairline.

With advancements in technology and science, new methods of battling baldness have greatly improved the quality of life. Surgical procedures currently offer the best results, but some still prefer herbal remedies and natural supplements. Keratin production can be stimulated with natural items such as nettle or horse tail. Biotin and vitamin A are also common supplements to slow down a receding hairline. Other items include ginseng and even zinc, which certainly have other positive properties for improved overall health. Many people blame the FDA for impeding the development of new alopecia remedies and treatments, but they are there to protect us from things that are far worse then a bit of hair loss.
