Shen Min (meaning Life/Vitality in Chinese)
Shen Min is a 100% natural hair nutrient derived from the eastern wild rose, also known as He Shou Wu. It is best known for its ability to stimulate hair growth and restore graying hair to its original color.
While the exact mechanism is still unknown, Shen Min seems to extend the growth phase of the hair follicle, thus reducing the number of hairs in the resting phase and fall out phase. The net effect is a greater number of hairs growing and fewer falling out. Another purported benefit may be derived from the ability of Shen Min to block DHT (DeHydro Testosterone) from binding to the follicle. DHT, the 'bad' testosterone, is a leading cause of male pattern baldness because it helps deactivate the hair by binding to the follicle. Men produce greater levels of DHT as they age.
The roots used are no less than 10 years old and organically grown and harvested. Most roots available on the market today are less than 3 years old. Shen Min uses the only standardized root in the industry. Each tablet contains 150 mg of 12:1 extract with 435 mgs of the raw herb. No binder or fillers are used Considered a naturally alternative to Rogaine/Minoxidil and is 100% safe with no known side effects. Helps grow terminal hair, not vellus hair (fine baby hair associated with Rogaine or Minoxidil). Contains BioPerine, a black pepper extract proven to help increase absorption and utilization of nutrients.
A 1983 study at the Hospital of Prevention and Therapeutics/Chemical Industry Shashi, China, found that of the 882 patients treated for hair loss with He Shou Wu for 3 months, 630 patients were cured while only 48 patients did not respond at all. Total effectiveness was over 94.5%. In another study, 88 patients with abnormally high cholesterol levels (hypercholestecolemia) were treated with He Shou Wu over a 30 day period and 78 patients had significant decrease in their LDL levels. Several other studies since the late 1960' have also provided support for these claims of hair growth and darkening of hair in men and women.
Best to take 1 tablet 3 times daily on an empty stomach before a meal. For best results, Shen Min should be taken over a 3-6 month period.
