Hair loss caused by a nutritional shortfall of iron can take years to develop and so cannot be corrected overnight. In fact without a supplement it may be many years after the menopause before a woman's iron stores return to the level of a man of the same age.
From starting a supplement regimen, the minimum time before a reduction in hair shedding is noticed is about 16 weeks. It may take considerably longer to see the benefit in terms of hair volume because of the time the hair takes to grow long enough to contribute to the overall hair volume. If you see no benefit in hair volume after 6-9 months then you should seek professional help as there are probably other reasons for your hair loss.
Eating a large portion of red meat every day would certainly raise iron levels but is not an option for most people. An iron supplement will achieve the same results but research has shown that to increase ferritin levels quickly, you will need a high strength iron supplement supplying 72mg of elemental iron a day, for up to 6 months. Thereafter at least 24mg of iron a day will be needed (or double this if you have heavy menstrual bleeding). For a significant number of women this level of iron intake will not have the desired effect unless they also take L-lysine plus vitamin C and vitamin B12 to aid the absorption of the iron. A supplement which has been developed to provide those nutrients at the specific levels is Florisene ®
Florisene® is a red/brown tablet providing the following nutrients:
Each tablet provides:
Vitamin C 24mg
Vitamin B12 3ï¾‘g
Iron (as ferrous glycine sulphate) 24mg
Florisene® is suitable for vegetarians.
Florisene® has been formulated to provide certain essential nutrients to help maximise hair growth in women.
Research has shown that a section of the female population; particularly between the ages of 18-50 have increased hair shedding (chronic telogen effluvium) and that there is a strong correlation between this hair loss and low iron stores (measured as serum ferritin).
Florisene® is especially recommended for women who have reduced hair volume (compared with several years ago) or who have recently noticed hair shedding as seen by more hairs in the brush, comb or when shampooing.
When Florisene® is taken at the recommended daily intake it can take up to 26 weeks, before the hair shedding is reduced. From that point, hair volume will start to increase but it will take several further months for the hair to grow to a length that contributes to hair volume.
