Zinc Thymulin (ZT) is used as a result of androgenic alopecia to regenerate hair loss. Hair loss occurs in a large percentage of the human adult population and increases with increasing age in prevalence. Among males and females, hair loss can occur but is more prevalent among males. In the western population, 50% of the male population is estimated to have significant hair loss by the age of 50 years.
Androgenetic alopecia (male pattern baldness) is the most common form of hair loss in men. Some hair loss includes hair follicle inactivation, meaning hair follicles are no longer growing hair. Literature also indicates that age-related thinning of the fat scalp layer can lead to hair loss through stem cell inactivation, which controls hair growth.
Zinc and thymulin have been researched and found to promote hair growth as two natural compounds involved in hair follicle development. Combined in a spray solution, ZT can be applied to the scalp, treating hair loss, bald patches, and inducing the anagen hair growth process (the effective hair follicle growth period during which the hair root is rapidly dividing).
Testing has been shown to be safe and effective, with proven clinical results published in the peer-reviewed medical journal Hair Therapy and Transplantation.
We know what zinc is, what is thymulin?
Thymulin is a nonapeptide hormone produced by the thymus gland. Early reports of thymus extract stimulating hair growth were discovered in 1986 and 2000.
The activity of the hormone is reliant on the mineral Zinc, which is why it is referred to as Zinc Thymulin. ZT also induces differentiation of T-cells.
Benefits of ZT:
- Can improve hair growth
- Can improve the quantity of hair
- Can prevent hair loss
- Can improve endogenous hair pigmentation
- A variety of alopecia states can be treated
- Both women and men can be treated
- Treatment may be combined with known other hair restoration methods
Side Effects: In the report “An Evaluation of Safety and Efficacy of Topical Zinc-Thymulin for Androgenetic Alopecia,” Zinc Thymulin demonstrated no harmful systemic or regional side effects of redness or scalp discomfort or loss of hair color, consistency or quantity.
