Florisene®: The answer to chronic telogen effluvium (CTE)

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 20mg 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®.

Studies show that for most women Florisene® can help overcome CTE

Whilst it is perfectly normal to lose some hair, research has shown that some women particularly between the ages of 18 to 50 have increased hair shedding due to a nutritional imbalance.

This imbalance leads to a reduced hair volume simply because less hair is actively growing at any one time.

Florisene® has been developed by one of Britain’s leading hair specialists following 10 years of clinical research. The studies have shown that for most women Florisene® can correct the imbalance.
