“Hair health is whole-body health.” – Nutrafol

Nutrafol is a whole body approach to hair thinning/hair loss. Each capsule contains all-natural, medical-grade ingredients clinically proven to improve your hair’s strength, thickness and growth rate.

Hair loss and hair thinning are universal concerns among both men and women.

What can cause hair loss or hair thinning?

Together with dermatologists, Nutrafol is specially formulated to address the root causes that affect hair loss from within.


Dealing with everyday stress is difficult. Over time, stress can impact hormones and nutrient absorption that is necessary for hair growth.

When your body is stressed, the stress hormone, cortisol, signals to the hair follicles to move out of the growth phase of the hair cycle too soon. Thus, accelerating the time it takes for the hair to shed.


Hormones affect hair growth in men and women differently. Men could see changes in the hairline and overall thinning of the hair. Whereas, women often see changes to their part line, in addition to unwanted facial hair growth due to perimenopause.

“Changes in hormones due to aging can make your body more susceptible to DHT hormone. DHT hormone causes hair follicles to shrink (miniaturize) and can shorten the hair growth cycle.”

Nutrient gaps, reflected by your hair, can be represented by brittle, dry or all over thinning of hair. The body need nutrients to feel, move and be its best. The same goes for the hair on your head. As a micro-organ, the hair follicle is impacted by these deficiencies.


Does metabolism play a role in its effect on hair? Yes. Breakage and hair that has trouble growing can be signs of metabolism’s effect on your hair.

“Your cellular metabolism receives nutrients and signals from the body to provide energy for your hair follicles to grow hair.”

Hair growth science. Nutrafol. (n.d.).


Anything from your surroundings, the food you eat, and the products you use daily can affect the health of the hair follicle. Leaving you with damaged, weak, brittle and breaking hair.


Aging plays a huge factor in hair health/hair loss. As we age, the production of collagen and elastin slows. Resulting in the scalp no longer being as strong as it once was, making it more difficult for the follicle to hold onto the hair. Thus, the hair cannot grow as long, strong or pigmented as before.

“The structural breakdown prevents key components, like blood vessels, lipids, melanocytes, and nerve endings from protecting, hydrating, and replenishing key nutrients needed for healthy hair growth.”

Exclusive to Nutrafol, Sensoril® Ashwagandha, helps balance the stress hormones, thus aiding in a healthy hair growth cycle. Sensoril® is the highest quality Ashwagandha available for a hair supplement.

This adaptogen is extracted using a double-patented clean extraction and sustainable practices.

“While most Ashwagandha extracts come from the root of the plant, ours is extracted from the root and leaves for a higher concentration of actives that absorb more quickly and easily into the body.”

Saw Palmetto fosters hair regrowth by combating DHT, a hormone responsible for shrinking hair follicles and contributing to ongoing hair thinning.

Sourced responsibly from the USA, Saw Palmetto undergoes a non-toxic, high pressure extraction process, ensuring each batch boasts the highest concentration of plant actives. This extract effectively targets areas like the scalp to enhance hair growth.


Peptides serve as the essential components for strengthening hair, while also providing hydration to the scalp.

The Marine Collagen Peptides originate from wild-caught fish thriving in the pristine waters of the North Atlantic. Extracted from fish scales through upcycling, they’re meticulously processed into a size optimal for swift absorption by the body, bolstering the health of your hair.


This is a highly concentrated antioxidant Vitamin E, which is specially formulated to combat the effects of environmental stressors and ultimately improving hair density.

Tocotrienol complex is gathered from ethically grown palm tress in Malaysia, the oil is carefully extracted from palm seeds and enhanced for maximum absorption in the body.


What is it? Extracted from Turmeric, this powerful antioxidant actively combats numerous causes of hair thinning and offers a potency 500 times higher than Turmeric alone.

Gathered through traditional and organic methods to reduce environmental impact, Curcumin undergoes a patented extraction process that prolongs its bioactivity in the body. This extended activity period ensures efficient targeting of the underlying causes of hair thinning.


In Nutrafols clinical studies, results were seen in 3-6 months.

“Efficacy is a direct result of rigorous clinical testing – which is why we require it.” – Nutrafol

Women’s Trial:

Following a rigorous 6-month clinical trial, the dermatologist conducting the evaluation observed a significant increase to both vellus (baby) hairs and terminal (longer, thicker) hair among women who were administered Nutrafol, compared to those in the placebo group.

  • 90% of women saw overall improvement in their hair.
  • 86% saw improved hair growth.
  • 84% saw less shedding
