Alternative to Finasteride

What is the safe alternative to finasteride for treating hair loss?

Hair loss in men is a lot more common than many people think. Around two thirds of men will experience some form of hair loss by the age of 40. And that figure rises even further by the age of 50. Male hair loss is a common issue, and without a cure, it's not about to go away any time soon.

There are currently only two medically approved hair loss treatments. The male oral pill, finasteride, is one of them, and the other is minoxidil, which is a topical solution, most commonly known as Regaine, or Rogaine.

Both treatments have shown to be effective in treating hair loss, to some extent, but they can also give negative side-effects (finasteride in particular), some of which can be serious, and long-term, therefore, many men would prefer to avoid the risks. That is why an increasing amount of men are looking for safe and effective alternatives to finasteride, for treating hair loss.


Is saw palmetto a safe alternative to finasteride?

Technically speaking, there is not a safe and natural alternative to finasteride, simply on the basis that finasteride is a drug, and like with any drugs and medical treatments, they are difficult to replicate in a safe and natural way. Drugs inevitably cause negative side effects.


However, there are some extracts and additives that act as antiandrogens, and can block DHT to some extent. An anti androgen treatment can slow down hair loss in men with typical androgenic alopecia (male pattern baldness). Androgens are male sex hormones. Men make higher levels of androgen levels than women, which can cause the hair to fall out.

Some key extracts and additives that have been found to lower androgen levels are; saw palmetto, pumpkin seed oil, nettle leaf, and green tea. More testing is needed to confirm their exact effectiveness, but when combined into a multivitamin supplement, like HR23+®, there has been clear evidence that hair loss can be stumped.


How to stop male hair loss without finasteride?

Many men believe that finasteride is the be all and end all of treating hair loss, but that simply isn't true. There are safer options to take that can be effective in treating baldness. What many people fail to realise is that finasteride is NOT a cure for hair loss. It is a treatment, and therefore it does not come with any guarantees.

Finasteride is not always effective, and many men only experience minor results from using the medication. This is why finasteride is seen as a high risk treatment, because you're risking your health for something that is not guaranteed to work. A safe alternative that contains DHT blocking properties, like HR23+®, can help prevent excessive hair fall, and support the function of healthy hair growth.


Can finasteride be taken with HR23+®?

To avoid potential negative side-effects, many men seek safe alternatives to finasteride. However, some men choose to take finasteride in lower dosages, by splitting the pill and taking a half dosage. This does not stop the risk of negative side-effects, but it does reduce the risks. A question we often get asked is; can finasteride be taken in conjunction with HR23+®? The simple answer is, yes, it can.

HR23+® is a safe and natural formula, therefore it does not pose any risks of negative side-effects. Taking HR23+® with finasteride is safe. The only negative side-effects you may get, would only be from the finasteride.

HR23+
® is not a cure for hair loss, but it does combine key hair growth promoters with DHT blockers/anti androgens to help slow down and stop hair loss, and support normal hair growth. HR23+® is a safe formula, and free from any major negative side-effects. With HR23+®, you can tackle hair loss without ever compromising on your health and wellbeing.
