How It Works & Evidence of Benefit
  • Soy isoflavones are phytoestrogens11

  • Both substances increase insulin growth factor (IGF-1), known to promote hair growth. 11

  • In a 5-month controlled clinical trial, participants (with androgenetic hair loss and alopecia areata) treated with soy isoflavones and capsaicin had much higher serum levels of IGF-1 and significantly more of the treated group had regrowth of hair (64.5%) compared to those given a placebo (11.8%). The highest response level was seen in those with androgenetic alopecia (AGA), where 88% saw regrowth. 11
