We all know about research carried out on the chemicals naturally contained within Japanese green tea and how they are reputed to help the body fight cancer and harmful free radicals, but did you know that scientists have recently discovered that it can help in the fight against hair loss?

The human body produces certain hormones that regulate events within our system. In men, an enzyme called 5 Alpha Reductase or 5AR, is present the adrenal glands, the prostate gland and the scalp. Its job is to metabolise the male hormone testosterone, turning it into DHT (dihydrotestosterone ). This hormone has been identified as being the cause of hair loss when it is over produced, and can be found in the hair follicles of both men and women experiencing hair loss. Green tea studies have revealed that it inhibits 5AR production due to the presence of EGCG (Epigallocatechin gallate), a potent antioxidant contained naturally within the green tea leaves. The studies that revealed the properties of this this miracle EGCG were carried out by scientists at the Department of Otolaryngology, Charles R. Drew University of Medicine and Science, Los Angeles, CA 90059, USA for Medline.

The results of the studies were as follows:

"The objective of this study was to examine the effects of polyphenolic compounds, present in noncommercially available green tea, on hair loss among rodents. In an experimental study, we randomly assigned 60 female Balb/black mice, which had developed spontaneous hair loss on the head, neck and dorsal areas into two equal groups; A (experimental) and B (control). Group A received 50% fraction of polyphenol extract from dehydrated green tea in their drinking water for six months. Group B received regular drinking water. Both groups were fed regular rodent diets (Purina Rodent Chow 5001) and housed individually in polycarbonate cages. The results showed that 33% of the mice in experimental Group A, who received polyphenol extract in their drinking water, had significant hair regrowth during six months of treatment (p = 0.014). No hair growth was observed among mice in the control group, which received regular water."

The research is good news for anyone suffering from hair loss. It offers a natural solution for both men and women suffering from this confidence reducing condition. Not to mention the health benefits it also offers to cure cardiovascular disease, high cholesterol levels, cancer, infection, rheumatoid arthritis, impaired immune function, prevents tooth decay and helps weight loss.

Green tea is widely available in the form of teabags from most health food stores, as are shampoos and conditioners. However, there is a better way to fight back without having to use any of the above products, making it easier to fit into your lifestyles. Kenrico offer the purest, highest quality made-in-Japan green tea with 100% natural EGCG in the form of a detox pad. These pads are placed on the sole of the foot and are normally worn overnight. Or, if you prefer, you can wear them during the day and on any part of the body. The preferred area of application is the sole of the foot as they contain the most nerve endings, making the effect similar to that of reflexology.

If you're still sceptical about the benefits of using Japanese green tea, then perhaps an article from the BBC in the UK can persuade you: http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/health/5334836.stm. What do you have to lose? It's natural, its cheap and it is sustainable. Go on, try the special edition CCi pad today.
