Is Avacor Safe To Use For Hair Loss

Every year there is a newhair loss product on the market that becomes all the rage, this year Avacor may be the hot product. Avacor has been gaining popularity and each day more and more hair loss sufferers spend their hard-earned money on this product, but the question on everyone's mind is whether Avacor actually works and if it's safe to use? Well, in this article we are going to break-down the various products that Avacor offers and discuss any safety concerns.

Avacor Hair Regrowth 

The most popular product in the Avacor line-up is without a doubt the hair regrowth serum. The Avacor Physician's Formulation for men is a product that contains 5% minoxidil. Minoxidil is the active ingredient in Rogaine. Minoxidil has been approved by the FDA to treat genetic hair loss. Minoxidil is a topical hair loss solution that is applied twice per day. Minoxidil is safe to use for men, but women should not use 5% minoxidil. The recommended formulation for women is 2% minoxidil. Common side effects for minoxidil include dizziness, lightheadedness, heart palpitations, chest pain, headaches and blurred or altered vision. The list of side effects may be enough to turn anyone off from trying the medication. Truthfully, the drug is taken by millions of men and women around the world with little to no side effects. That said, Avacor does not have any special formulation and the active ingredient minoxidil 5% can be purchased anywhere for a substantially lower price.

Avacor All Natural Nutricap 

According to Avacor the "All Natural Nutricap" is an all-natural product that promotes overall hair health. The key word is "promotes" many companies love to use the word promote to describe their products efficacy. However, promoting hair health and stopping hair loss are not the same and many hair loss sufferers get duped in to believing they are the same thing. The "All Natural Nutricap" list of ingredients are as follows: Vitamin B12 (100% DV), Biotin (100% DV), Saw Palmetto Berry Extract 4:1, Keratin, Resveratrol, Bilberry and Ginkgo Biloba. Saw Palmetto is the most popular hair loss supplement on the market, it has been on the market for decades and has been touted by some as the "all-natural Propecia" however, the clinical studies are lackluster and the results are often non-existent for it's efficacy in hair loss. The other ingredients are simply vitamins and supplements that are found in virtually any multi-vitamin tablet for an exceptionally lower price. That said, the ingredients are safe to use and carry very minor side effects, which can include dizziness, headache, vomiting and diarrhea. The All Natural Nutricap is a capsule that is to be taken daily, one in the morning (AM) and one in the evening (PM).

Conclusion

Based on the comprehensive ingredient analysis, we can confirm that Avacor is indeed safe to use, but the real question becomes is it worth the price? In our opinion, the Avacor Hair Regrowth (minoxidil) product is on the higher-end cost-wise for 5% minoxidil. Furthermore, there aren't any additional ingredients that could either inhibit DHT or aid in the absorption of the minoxidil in to the scalp. There are more cost-effective alternatives on the market. The All Natural Nutricap capsules do not contain any ground-breaking ingredients as well. Most of the ingredients are in any household mult-vitamin and any other ingredients that aren't listed can be purchased for an exceptionally lower price online.
