Florisene for Women
Florisene® is a clinically supported supplementation programme shown to help women with Chronic Telogen Effluvium (CTE), the term used to describe excessive and persistent hair shedding. CTE affects an incredible 4.8 million women in the UK and Florisene® is a cost-effective answer for patients (who are typically between the ages of 18-50) with this problem.
Research involving hundreds of women has shown that the major cause of CTE is low serum ferritin. This reflects the amount of ‘storage’ iron in the body. For some women, low ferritin levels results in gradual hair loss, the end result being a noticeably ‘thinner’ ponytail or less hair to clip back.
Low serum ferritin in women is now a widespread problem due to reduced red meat consumption and menstrual blood loss in women of reproductive age. The good news is that research has shown that if the serum ferritin is raised above a certain point then normal hair growth re-establishes.
Florisene® is a clinically relevant iron supplementation programme, consisting of a highly absorbable form of iron and a significant level of the essential amino acid L-lysine. Research indicates that low L-lysine intakes may exacerbate a reduced ferritin level and clinical studies show that for some women ferritin levels will not improve without supplementary L-lysine.
