Stress Adaptogen MD Frequently Asked Questions
What are the hair growth cycles?
The hair growth cycle consists of 3 stages. Anagen, Catagen and Telogen. The Anagen Phase is the growth phase. Your hair grows rapidly in this phase, this phase lasts an average of 3 to 5 years, the hair is fully attached to the blood supply. The Catagen Phase lasts 2-3 weeks and during this phase the hair shaft is separated from blood supply (about 3% of your hairs are in this phase at any time). The Telogen Phase lasts around 3 months and the hair is in the resting phase and no longer growing (about 6-8% of your hairs are at this phase at any time). The new hair is formed and will push out the old hair, and the cycle begins again.
What is the HPA Axis?
The hypothalamic–pituitary–adrenal axis (HPA axis or HTPA axis) is a complex set of direct influences and feedback interactions among three components: the hypothalamus, the pituitary gland, and the adrenal glands.
These organs and their interactions create the HPA axis, a major neuroendocrine system that controls reactions to stress and regulates many body processes, including digestion, the immune system, mood and emotions, sexuality, and energy storage and expenditure. (source Wikipedia)
Our hair shafts have their own HPA axis and stress causes the hair to go prematurely into the Telogen phase which causes hair fall.
What are the main causes of hair loss?
Thinning hair and hair loss can be triggered by hormones, stress, environment (food you eat, products you use, pollution), nutrition and metabolism. Stress Adaptogen help neutralize the effects of stress to help prevent your hair from going into premature Telogen Phase (the phase where your hair rests and falls out).
What are the signs of stress?
You may feel stressed or anxious, have trouble sleeping or waking up, or feel tired or wired throughout the day, this can cause excessive shedding or all-over thinning hair, not just at the hairline or part.
Is Stress Adaptogen a take-alone product?
No, to get the maximum benefit out of Stress Adaptogen you should take it with Nutrafol and those two formulas work together to minimize the effects of stress on your body and hair.
