Androgenic Alopecia, an autosomally mediated chronbiologic phenomenon, affects over 40 million men as well as 20 million women in America.1 To  date, there has been no safe, efficacious method of treating and/or reversing  the progression of this disorder without presenting known negative side  effects. There have been numerous proposed treatments for baldness, but only a few have provided effective treatment over a wide range of patients, and none have been based on naturally occurring substances. Androgenic Alopecia (AGA) which describes male pattern alopecia, is considered to be a genetically based disorder 2 and commonly characterized by thinning and loss of hair in affected individuals within a given pattern on the scalp of the head.  This disorder progresses by causing the affected hair follicles to become smaller and correspondingly, the hair becomes finer. Eventually, the fine  hairs may be lost and, thus, baldness results in the affected area. Hair  has been classified as being of at least two distinct types, terminal and  vellus.3 A vellus hair is short, fine, thin, and non-pigmented, with the bulb of the hair follicle seated superficially in the dermis of the scalp.  Terminal hairs are long, coarse and pigmented, with the bulb of the follicle seated deep in the dermis. During the thinning stage of alopecia, the hairs  in the affected area are believed to transform from terminal to vellus. It is this transformation to vellus hairs that is equated to baldness. The  core of the phenomenon is associated with structural miniaturization.

Androgenic Alopecia (AGA) as well as Benign Prostatic  Hyperplasia (BPH) are believed to result from a genetic predisposition associated with 5alpha dihydrotestosterone4, which is a highly bio-active metabolite  of the androgenic hormone testosterone. Although these disorders are vastly different in physiology and presentation, the etiology of each stems from  this specific hormonal metabolism5. In developing treatment for AGA, various  hormones such as estrogen and other anti androgens have been tested and  found unsuitable due to undesirable side effects6, such as feminization  of male subjects. Therefore, it would be desirable to find a treatment for  AGA that minimizes the use of bio-effecting drugs. It would be expected  that natural ingredients will be biologically more friendly to the user and suitable for long term use with minimal side effects.

Mechanism of Action
This study contemplates the benefit of a natural or organic composition and method of treatment for Androgenic Alopecia (AGA)  in order to reduce or arrest the onset of symptomatology associated with this specific disorder. The preferred formulation employs beta-sitosterol, saw palmetto berry extract, lecithin, inositol, phosphatidyl choline, niacin, and biotin in orally administered dosages. The method of treatment is administering a dosage of the stated ingredients. In one embodiment, the dosages may be  combined in a single soft gel capsule. The preferred quantities of each  is as shown in the following
Table 1:






Beta Sitosterol

50 mg

Saw Palmetto Berry Extract
(Standardized 85% to 95% liposterolic content)

200 mg


50 mg


100 mg

Phophatidyl Choline

25 mg


15 mg


100 mcg

The preferred dosage is stated with respect to cholestatin 45% beta sitosterol. A dosage from 40 mg to 60 mg each twelve hours has  been found most effective. According to the capsule formulation of Table  1, a gel capsule containing 50 mg of Beta Sitosterol is taken twice per day such as each morning and evening. The preferred dosage is stated with  respect to an extract of standardized 85 % to 95% liposterolic content.  A dosage of from 160 mg to 240 mg each twelve hours has been found most effective. According to the capsule formulation of Table 1, a gel capsule containing 200 mg of standardized saw palmetto extract is taken twice per day such as each morning and each evening.

According to another aspect, the invention provides a means for emulsifying  Beta Sitosterol and Saw Palmetto extract, or an emulsifier system component  that aids the other components in penetrating the stomach lining. A suitable emulsifier is lecithin, inositol, or preferably a mixture of both. The preferred dosage of Table I is stated with respect to lecithin consisting  of 61-64% phosphatides, for which the dosage is 50 mg each twelve hours. The preferred dosage of inositol is 100 mg each twelve hours. These emulsifier system components can be varied in dosage by a large factor without harm or toxicity.

As means of protecting follicles from degeneration due to oxidation, free  radicals and metabolic by-products, the treatment provides and antioxidant component such as phosphatidyl choline. An orally administered dosage  of 25 mg per twelve hours provides a general antioxidant prophylactic  effect throughout the body.

A vasodilator component is also provided, wherein preferred elements are niacin, biotin, and preferably both. Niacin, or vitamin B3, generally  promotes circulation and is beneficial in maintaining and promoting circulation to the follicles. D-Biotin, or vitamin H, compliments the effects of niacin.  These dosages are approximate and may be varied by a large factor such as 50% or more.

The shell of a gel capsule may be formed of gelatin, glycerin, water,  titanium dioxide, and such other pigments as may be desired. The preferred  dosage of Table I provides a suitable quantity of each ingredient for  treatment at twelve hour intervals.

In the dosages and treatments, Beta Sitosterol and saw palmetto berry  extract are considered the active ingredients. Their disclosed dosage  is suitable for achieving effective treatment with intermittent administration  approximately at twelve hour intervals. The remaining components are administered in a mixture with the active ingredients for internal administration and may be considered supplemental to enhance the action of the active ingredients.

The formulation is believed to function on a molecular level via competitive mechanical inhibition of the T1 and T2 5-Alpha DHT cellular and nuclear  androgen receptor sites found within susceptible scalp hair follicles. Unbound 5alphaDHT is thus metabolized out of the body via primary excretion  pathways without triggering the secondary and pathological cascade of  events associated with this disorder.

Study Synopsis
This research study over a six month period did  not reveal any side effects, drug interactions or adverse events.

Based on the data gathered:

all participants (100%) in the study reported an arresting of symptomatology commonly associated with Pattern Hair Loss or Androgenetic Alopecia (AGA)

84% reported  an aesthetically meaningful change in the caliber of affected scalp hair.

These findings were determined via investigator observation, baseline, intra study, and endpoint photographic evidence, as well as patient reporting.  This study suggests a highly efficacious and safe treatment methodology.  Based on these highly positive findings, further study is clearly indicated and presently underway.
