Hair Loss
There is a solution to our problem. The secret is to find it fast. You have reached the right place. Welcome to RecoverYourHair.

 Epilobio  epilobium Epilobium is available as syrup, tea or soft gelatin capsules. The easiest option is usually the capsules and eat three or four 200mg daily for completing 800mg.

Response time and efficiency for Alopecia are unclear, but thanks to the aromatase inhibition counteract the side effects of Finasteride and Dutasteride.

There are not known adverse effects, which would secure their intake. Anyway, do not start such treatment without talking to a professional.

Epilobio (Epilobium Parviflorum and Epilobium Angustifolium)

epilobium It is a plant of the Enoteraceas family commonly found in European mountains or in northern Asia. It has a rigid stem that can be measure between 70cm and 1 meter tall, the flowers have four petals and four pink sepals. With the outbreaks salads are prepared and the rest of the plant is used for medical purpose.

Its action is similar to Dutasteride: inhibits the production of dihydrotestosterone by blocking the enzyme 5-alpha-reductase type I and II.

Take a look at the causes of hair loss for more information on the process of Alopecia, hormones and dihydrotestosterone (DHT).

Testosterone -through of several enzymes, becomes different hormones. Inhibitors of the enzyme 5-alpha-reductase (Finasteride and Dutasteride) prevent the conversion of testosterone into dihydrotestosterone (DHT), leaving inside of the body a "surplus" of testosterone. The problem is that this surplus could turn into estrogen causing an imbalance in the ratio testosterone / estrogen of our body.

When our body has an excess of estrogen, you may experience one of the pathologies less desirable in men: Gynecomastia (increased size of the mammary glands).

This is where Epilobio comes into the game, which also inhibits the enzyme that converts testosterone into estrogen (aromatase) maintaining proper hormonal balance. Some people use Epilobio to prevent possible side effects of Finasteride and Dutasteride.

Its active ingredients are flavonoids, phytosterols and ellagic tannins macrocycles. The plant is used as anti-inflammatory, to treat diarrhea, gastroenteritis, stomatitis, gingivitis and pharyngitis. It is also known for its good results in cases of benign prostatic hyperplasia and as a result of the latter began to be tested to combat androgenetic alopecia.

In general, DHT blockers help stop hair loss. That is why many people experience with them before they have been approved by the FDA.
Dutasteride is a clear example.

We do not recommend treatments that have not been approved by the authorities of your country, but in the case of plants or natural medicines, they do not need approval.

This does not mean they are "healthier" or have no adverse effects. Just competent authorities rarely intervene with natural medicines, so you should be even more careful.

Sadly, there are no "official" studies that claims that Epilobio helps with androgenic alopecia, but there are many people who have achieved good results. Even if you use another treatment, you can combine it with Epilobio.

The recommended dosage is a gelatin capsule of 800 mg per day. In some packages, its therapeutic action is resumed as follows: "An herb traditionally used in Europe to help regulate the normal functions of the prostate.".

As we can see, nowhere speaks of Alopecia and there are no studies or double blind trials proving their effectiveness. Still, perhaps worth trying as it can be economic and there is no known reports of side effects.

Important for Treatment:


Take about 800mg per day. This can be through one or more capsules. We suggest taking them with water.

Do not use if:

Women, children and infants should not take it without consulting a doctor.
If you suffer from benign prostatic hyperplasia, ask a professional to indicate the appropriate doses.

Side effects:

None known. There are no reports of adverse effects.

Remember not to start any treatment without first consulting a professional. Even with a natural treatment of this type.
