What is the recommended daily dose of PriaPlex?

The recommended daily dose of PriaPlex is 3 tablets, 2 times per day.
You can take the tablets with or away from meals.

How much PriaPlex can I safely take in a day?

You do not need to take more than 6 tablets in a day to gain the full effectiveness of the PriaPlex supplement. The best results come from consistent use over many months.

How do I know PriaPlex is working for me?

PriaPlex is a Tango Advanced Nutrition product that should improve your general health while also restoring hair growth and health.

After 5-10 days of use you can expect to experience increased energy strength and stamina. These are signs that PriaPlex is correcting internal metabolism in a way that will support healthier skin and hair growth.

After 3-4 weeks you should note improved skin tone and color. These positive changes indicate improved microcirculation in the skin capillaries and better delivery of important nutrients for growth to the hair follicles.

Between 6-12 weeks of regular usage should result in decreased hair loss and the start of new hair growth. The hair growth will appear first like peach fuzz and likely where you experienced your most recent hair loss. Hair growth at the top or vertex is the most common place to see results.

After 6 months you may notice the start of grey hair returning to its original color and that the fine new hair thickens.

The likelihood and timing of hair growth will depend on the state of your health, the degree and type of hair loss you have experienced.

Are the results the same for men and women?

Both men and women experience male-pattern hair loss with age. PriaPlex is restorative for both men and women with this type of hair loss.

It is also equally effective in men and women when the cause of hair loss is not due to male pattern baldness.

Do I have to take PriaPlex forever?

Generally speaking, if hair growth is restored and you stop using the product, your results will begin to reverse and increased hair loss will result.

However, since the benefits of using PriaPlex help improve and balance your health on the inside and the outside, you may wish to use the product as your main regular daily supplement.

When should I take PriaPlex?

The most important consideration in taking PriaPlex is to use it twice daily and consistently. Convenience makes regular use possible, so including PriaPlex in your regular supplement routine is a good idea.

You can take PriaPlex with or away from meals.

Morning and early evening, or with dinner are the best times to take the formula to spread out its benefits over a 24-hour period.

Some people take their evening dose of PriaPlex about 1 hour before bedtime to make sure they have beneficial nutrients working while they are sleeping.

I take over-the-counter/prescriptive medicines for my heart and blood circulation. Can I take PriaPlex with them?

You can take PriaPlex while you are using other products for your circulation or any other condition. You should not take PriaPlex, however, if you are on Coumadin/warfarin.

Can I take PriaPlex with other supplements?

Yes, you can take PriaPlex with and at the same time as you take other dietary supplements.

As a general precaution, you should always take PriaPlex or any other supplement at least 2 hours away from any medication to reduce any possible risk of interaction.

If you have any questions about using PriaPlex or any other supplement while you are using medications of any type, ask your doctor or pharmacist for advice.

Can I combine PriaPlex with some of your other products like Vital Cell or Herbal Boost?

You can take 2 capsules, 2 times per day of Vital Cell along with your regular doses of PriaPlex and expect additional benefits from the promotion of blood circulation.

You can also call one of our product specialists if you have questions about how best to combine our formulas. The toll-free number for product questions is 1-866-778-2646, ext. 2.

Can a woman take PriaPlex if she is pregnant or nursing?

No, we do not recommend that a woman take PriaPlex if she is pregnant or nursing. This is not because PriaPlex is unsafe but because there have been no safety studies performed on the ingredients in PriaPlex for pregnancy and nursing.

Can children take PriaPlex?

PriaPlex is not recommended for children under the age of 18.

You can call our toll-free number if you have a child who may benefit from PriaPlex to discuss its use for their condition, including the proper dosage. The toll-free number again is 1-866-778-2646, ext 2.

Can I give PriaPlex to my pet (cat, dog, or horse)?

Yes, however, you should contact a holistic veterinarian for advice before you give PriaPlex to your pet. Your veterinarian will be the best person to determine what dose you should give to your pet, since animals vary widely in size and speed of metabolism. Both of those factors determine doses for supplements for animals.

Is PriaPlex tested for contaminants that could harm my health?

Yes, we regularly test batches of our formulas to make sure they meet strict quality control guidelines recommended by government regulatory agencies.

Are there any side effects from taking PriaPlex?

PriaPlex does not cause drowsiness or make a person sleepy. It also does not contain any stimulants that might cause jitteriness or lack of sleep.

What do I do if I think taking PriaPlex is causing me discomfort?

The most common discomforts experienced by a tiny percentage of people when taking any vitamin, mineral, or herbal formula are digestive upset or very mild allergic reactions such as skin itching or irritability.

These minor discomforts usually disappear by taking a lower dose or by taking the supplement with meals.

If you should experience discomfort when taking PriaPlex and it does not go away with these suggestions, then discontinue use and contact our product specialist for further recommendations at 1-866-778-2646, ext 2. If we cannot determine a way for you to continue use of the product to gain its benefits, then we will arrange for a full refund for you.


Directions: The recommended dose is 3 caplets, twice daily.

Not recommended for pregnant or nursing women.

    Priaplex really works for hair —I’ve been a licensed acupuncturist for over forty years and I’ve seen it work for a clients for whom I’ve prescribed it. I believe it has numerous other benefits, such as for thyroid deficiency, but this is the one for hair!

    I had strong nails when I was young but after 3 kids they became brittle and broke off. I started taking PriaPlex 10 years ago because my hair was also thinning. It did bring my hair back but it also gave me back the nails I had when young. I quit taking it but after having Covid my hair is again thinning out so Im back on PriaPlex (one month now) Im believing it will bring my hair back. But I might add….even after years of quitting PriaPlex my nails have continued strong. It must have corrected something in my system. Also I have tried every thing under the sun for my hair and NOTHING worked for me!!! In fact, some of the so called remedies made my hair even thinner and was coming out every time I washed it. I was on another very expensive product just before PriaPlex and my hair was coming out in gobs every time I washed. PriaPlex has stopped that in just one month.

    PriaPlex Hair Support

    Over a year ago, I noticed that I was finding more hair in the shower drain, so I started investigating various products that may help my hair to grow back. I had purchased a few Tango products and read a number of reviews on Tango’s PriaPlex, so I decided to try it. I think I finished off two containers and noticed new growth around my forehead, and my hair definitely started to feel thicker. I was satisfied at the results and mentioned it to a couple of my friends. I stopped using the product after finishing off the two containers, because I felt that my hair had become thick enough and was no longer falling out. Recently, I noticed that once again I am witnessing more hair on my brushes and combs and in the drain.. . My system must be missing some choice supplements to help hair growth… I feel it is time to purchase a supply of PriaPlex, again. I like the product because it contains natural ingredients and no harsh chemicals. I would definitely recommend PriaPlex to anyone having a problem with thinning hair.

    Covid Hair Disaster

    I had COVID August of 2021. My case was comparatively mild when I heard how bad others had it. I never heard that covid patients had the common denominator of hair falling out 3-6 months after they had it until mine started falling out like crazy and I told my hair dresser about it. I loved my hair. Nice full thick head. My brush started being full of it. I saw it on my shower curtain and bathtub floor. I was going to buy a mattress and while trying out the beds I had to go back and pick up my hair off the stores bed and pillows YIKES…. WHAT SHOULD I DO ABOUT THIS. My
    pony tail was getting thinner and the right side of my hair was noticeably thinner than the left side. HELP!!! I ASKED MY NATURALPATH and she turned me on to PriPlex Hair Support. Beginning of second week my hair slowly started to stop loosing falling out. My nautralpathic doctor told me I will at least need two full bottles 6 tablets per day and that’s what I did. After starting the second bottle I started to notice little short fuzzies growing all over my hair. Even though it looked horrible I was jumping for joy as it was clear my hair is growing back. I decided to stay on this product and am on the 4th bottle now but only taking 3 tablets per day starting the 4th bottle. The new growth is about 4 inches long now. Still sticks up after a blow dry and will take awhile to get caught up to my long hair even though my hair dresser cut it shorter so it could catch up easier.
    I recommend this product to everyone who also complains of a COVID hair loss. I also know of someone who takes it just to keep his hair thicker at the age of 72. He has the hair of a 30 year old. This also makes me want to just keep taking the maintenance of 3 tablets per day as long as I can afford it. If it can keep my hair nice thick and healthy now maybe I can look younger as I get into my 70’s. I’m in my mid 60’s and was surprised that it worked so fast and good.
    Can you tell I LOVE this product :-}

    Increased hair growth.

    I already had good strong and long hair so I ordered PrialPlex because I noticed my hair was falling out more than expected. After taking 2 bottles I saw that my hair was increasing and the start up grey ones were growing back to natural color. I believe that if you want to use the product for hair maintenance it will work, and over time the hair will grow to its best state. I try to balance my foods and reduce stress levels as these are also factors to poor hair health and growth.
    It would be great if we can get discounts more often as overseas shipping cost plus product do add up.
    Thanks for this opportunity.

All-natural herbal PriaPlex® is a U.S. Patented herbal formula that has been shown to halt age-related hair loss while promoting fuller, thicker hair growth in both men and women.

This highly effective herbal supplement supports healthy hair from “the inside out” with a unique blend of “essence tonic” herbs that aid in restoring circulation to the follicles. In addition to reducing excessive hair loss and restoring fuller hair growth, users of PriaPlex often report on improved skin tone, energy and overall health.

Numerous clinical cases have shown that formula, if used uninterruptedly and at sufficient dosage, can stop abnormal hair loss within four to eight weeks. New hair typically begins to grow at the vertex, or top of the head, in three to six months time. In some cases original hair color begins to reappear as part of the healthy new hair growth within six months after starting to use PriaPlex.

White Paper: Hair Loss a Widespread Problem

While losing some hair on a daily basis is normal, shedding more than 100 hairs per day is considered excessive and may indicate a serious problem. Contrary to popular belief, many people who suffer from excessive hair loss are extremely unhappy with their situation and would do anything to change it. Hair loss affects every aspect of life — interpersonal relationships as well as professional ones (it is not uncommon for men to change their career paths because of hair loss).

Image_004Fig. 1. Progressive loss of hair as classified on the Hamilton–Norwood
chart, ranging from stages I through VII.

Male Pattern Hair Loss

Male-pattern hair loss (Fig. 1), also known as androgenetic alopecia, is the most common form of balding, affecting roughly 40 million men in the US. Approximately 25 percent of men with male-pattern hair loss will begin to lose their hair by age 30, and up to 66 percent will begin balding by age 60. Male-pattern hair loss is closely linked to androgens — sex steroid hormones synthesized from cholesterol in the testes, ovaries and adrenal glands. The primary androgens — testosterone, pregnenolone, androstenedione and DHEA (dehydroepiandrosterone) — normally regulate male and female sexual development and behavior by binding to receptors on target cells throughout the body.

Another androgen, dihydrotestosterone (DHT), has been identified by researchers as a primary cause of male pattern baldness. DHT is synthesized from testosterone by the enzyme 5alpha-reductase. When DHT binds to receptors in the hair follicle, it causes the hair roots to shrink, or “miniaturize.” DHT has also been shown to shorten the amount of time hair spends in the growing (anagen) phase from as long as five years to as little as two months.

In 1998, researchers discovered that men genetically prone to male pattern baldness have significantly higher numbers of androgen receptors in the hair follicles located across the forehead and scalp — exactly those areas where hair loss first appears in androgenic alopecia. Additional research has shown that these androgen-sensitive follicles also have significantly higher levels of 5alpha-reductase (1.5 to 3 times higher) and DHT than hair follicles from other areas of the scalp.1

Over time, DHT’s miniaturizing effect can shrink large adult hairs, resulting in finer, vellus hairs only 10% as wide as normal and barely an inch long. This leads to the “peach fuzz” common to early stage balding. At this stage if the effects of DHT aren’t reversed or halted in time, the hair follicles will shrink down until they eventually vanish, resulting in complete baldness in the affected area.

Female Pattern Hair Loss

Hair loss isn’t exclusively a male problem — approximately 50% of all women over the age of 50 experience a similar condition, referred to as female androgenic alopecia (Fig. 2). Symptoms in women are generally less severe than those experienced by men, appearing as an overall thinning of hairs across the top of the head, and the gradual loss of hairs down the center part-line of the scalp. The reason women experience milder symptoms is due to hormonal differences — women produce significantly lower amounts of testosterone than men (about 95% less on average). Women also produce lower levels — about 60 percent less than men — of the enzyme 5α-reductase that converts testosterone into DHT.

Image_005Fig. 2. Progression and severity of receding hair line in women with androgenetic hair loss
is generally classified on the Ludwig scale, ranging from stages I through III.

Additionally, women produce higher levels of another enzyme, aromatase (estrogen synthase), that converts testosterone into the female hormone, estradiol. While males also produce small amounts of aromatase, research has shown that aromatase levels in the frontal and rear scalp follicles in women are 4 to 6 times higher than in men, which is why women rarely lose hair in these areas.

Healthy Follicles for Healthy Hair

Hair follicles are among the most active and fastest growing structures in the body. Human hairs are produced by follicles — specialized organs that cover the entire body, with the exception of the palms and soles of the feet. Follicles are composed of three major structures — the dermal papilla, hair matrix, and hair shaft. (Fig 3).


Image_006Fig. 3. Cutaway schematic of a hair follicle showing structure of
shaft, bulb and microcirculatory vessels.

 The dermal papilla, a pear-shaped structure located at the base of the hair follicle, is comprised of connective tissues and a capillary loop containing tiny blood vessels that provide the nutrients required for hair growth.

The papilla is surrounded by the “matrix” — a bulb-shaped collection of specialized epithelial cells that produce a protein, keratin, that actually forms the hair fiber. The matrix also contains melanocytes, specialized pigment cells that infuse the growing hair shaft with melanin, the compound that gives otherwise transparent hair its natural coloring.

Different types of melanin produce different colors — yellow, rust, brown, and black — that combine to produce a wide variety of hair colors, ranging from blond to brown to pitch-black. Red hair is the result of another type of coloring agent, the iron-containing pigment called trichosiderin.

Three Stages of Hair Growth

Mature human hair growth occurs in three distinct phases — growth, transition and rest — that are collectively referred to as the hair cycle (Fig. 4).

1. Growth Phase (Anagen): Each hair cycle begins with a growth (anagen) phase. This is marked by rapid cell division in the hair matrix that builds up layers of keratin to form a single hair shaft that grows out from the follicle at a rate of up to one inch per month. This growth phase typically lasts two to six years. At any given time, about ninety percent of all scalp hairs are in the active growing phase.

2. Transitional Phase (Catagen): At the end of the anagen phase, hair growth ceases and the follicle enters the transition (or catagen) phase. During this phase hair matrix cells begin to die off as the follicle base and bulb begin to shrink. Over time, this shrinkage (miniaturization) pinches off the lower hair bulb, cutting off access to the blood vessels and circulation necessary for hair growth. At any given time, one to two percent of all hair follicles are in this transition phase, which usually lasts for between one to two weeks.

3. Resting Phase (Telogen): The final stage of the hair cycle is the resting (or telogen) phase. During this phase, the mature hairs reside in the follicle five to six weeks before falling out. Approximately 10 percent of all hairs are in this transition period at any time, accounting for the normal shedding of thirty and fifty hairs each day.

Image_007Fig. 4. Three stages of human hair growth: Anagen (growth) phase, lasts
from two to six years; Catagen (transitional) phase, lasts from one to
two weeks; Telogen (resting) phase, lasts five to six weeks.

After shedding the hair shaft, the follicle begins a new cycle of hair growth, marked by the swelling of the dermal papilla and the formation of a new capillary loop. As blood vessels reattach to the papilla, they grow and expand four-fold to provide the hair matrix with the nutrients necessary for growing new hair.The entire process — growth, transition and rest — makes up one complete hair cycle. Each hair follicle is limited to the number of hair cycles that can be completed — estimated to between 20 and 25 cycles — before reverting to vellus hairs (peach fuzz) and eventually disappearing.

Human Aging and Hair Growth

In humans, the hair growing (anagen) phase is at its longest — ranging up to 7 years — and the transition/resting phases are at their shortest — lasting only about 4 months — throughout youth and adolescence. As a result of the great amount of time devoted to supporting hair growth in adolescence, hair is at its healthiest and most attractive throughout this phase of life.

Beginning at around age 35, changes in hair cycles begin to affect the density and overall appearance of hair. With each successive cycle, the amount of time spent in the growing phase is reduced, resulting in shorter, thinner hairs. Additionally, the amount of time spent in the resting phase lengthens, extending the period between when a hair falls out and when a new one grows back. The result of these changes is a gradual reduction in overall hair density and appearance.

Changes in hair color also begin to appear at this time. As pigment-producing melanocytes gradually die out, hairs begin to lose their luster and color, slowly turning gray and eventually becoming totally white.

Excessive Hair Loss

While gradual hair loss is a normal part of human aging, for many people excessive hair loss, or balding, is a significant source of anxiety. Based on several characteristics, hair loss can be roughly divided into two categories — temporary and permanent. Temporary hair loss, which is usually caused by excessive stress, poor diet, hormonal imbalance and endocrine dysfunction, can often be restored within six months to two years after eliminating the underlying cause(s). Permanent hair loss is caused by genetics and is considered irreversible.

An ideal solution for hair loss would be one that 1) promotes new hair growth while extending the anagen (growing) phase, 2) lengthens the catagen (transitional) phase, and 3) shortens the telogen (resting) phase.

New Option for Healthy Hair

In Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), conditions such as hair loss are addressed by balancing both the “surface” and “root” levels of the problem. Now, after 10 years of intensive research, development, and clinical evaluation, a patented, all-natural herbal TCM supplement is available in the United States to aid in halting age-related hair loss while promoting healthy hair growth.* By promoting healthy circulation in the tiniest blood vessels (microcapillaries) that supply nutrients and oxygen to the hair follicles, the formula supports thicker, healthier hair, improved skin tone and overall health and vitality.*

Human Trials with Alopecia Areata

The earliest trials involved a group of patients diagnosed with Alopecia areata, or “spot areata.” In early stages, Alopecia areata causes clumps of hair to fall out with a gentle pull, leaving patients with one or more bare spots on the scalp. Alopecia areata occurs in young people at a rate of approximately 17 per 100,000 per year, and while the condition isn’t harmful, the psychological impact is problematic for young patients. Fortunately, the condition is generally temporary, and 80% of the patients eventually self-heal.

In addition to the form seen in younger people, a more pervasive form of Alopecia areata appears in women (and occasionally men) over the age of 35. Also characterized by extensive hair loss, the condition usually clears up within one to two years, but the psychological stress of going bald makes this condition a profitable area for treatments at hair loss centers.

The most common treatment for Alopecia areata involves monthly injections of corticosteroids, and twice-a-day external application of 5% minoxidil. Treatment generally requires 8-12 weeks before hair begins to regrow.

AA Case 1: Mr. W. was a 50-year-old sales manager who had lost a large amount of hair in the occipital region. He came to the research center after being treated with steroid medications for one month. The steroids had not alleviated his alopecia areata, and the area of hair loss was continuing to spread. After one month of taking PriaPlex, Mr. W. reported significant improvement in his condition, and within two months all of his hair was restored.

AA Case 2: C. was a 15-year-old student with several bald spots across the back of her head. By the time C. came to the center, she had already completed a month of conventional drug treatment without any improvement and was emotionally stressed from additional hair loss. After taking PriaPlex for one month, her hair loss stopped and new hair started to grow back. Within several months all of her hair was restored.

AA Case 3: A family brought in a 10-year-old student who had begun to lose her hair. Her family had her treated by both Chinese and Western doctors, but there was no improvement and her hair loss was increasing. After 50 days of treatment with PriaPlex, her condition had improved significantly, with older bald spots filling in, and hair loss at newer spots significantly slowed.

Male Pattern Hair Loss

Pleased with the results of the Alopecia areata trial, the lab next began testing subjects with male pattern baldness. The results revealed that almost all men with stage 3 or 4 hair loss reacted within six months, regrowing fine hairs on the top of the scalp that grew thicker and longer over time. Subjects with stage 4 to 5 hair loss were more likely to experience significant regrowth; however, improvements in stage 7 male-pattern baldness were only noticeable close up, with thinner hairs becoming thicker and longer, but with little change on the forehead.

The following images (Figures 5 – 8) document the results of four cases of male pattern baldness after treatment with PriaPlex.

Image_011Fig. 6. Mr. L., 29-years-old, after taking PriaPlex for one year, revealing increased hair density and overall hair coverage.

Image_012Fig. 7. Mr. S., 38-years-old, after taking PriaPlex for one month, revealing thicker hairs and increased hair density.

Image_013Fig. 8. Mr. D., 40-years-old, after taking PriaPlex for eight months, revealing reduced hair loss, regrowth of original hair across top of scalp.

Human Trials with Alopecia Totalis

Following the positive outcome of the male pattern baldness trials, the researchers began to test the new formula on several women diagnosed with Alopecia totalis, a condition that causes lymphocytes to attack hair follicles during the growth phase of the hair cycle. In extreme cases, Alopecia totalis can result in the total loss of hair on the head, face, eyebrows and eyelashes within six months. Full recovery is rare, and even with effective treatment, new hair growth in patients with alopecia totalis is often incomplete.

Image_014Fig. 9. Ms. Y., 26-years-old, diagnosed July 21, 2006, arrived at the clinic after being told her condition was incurable.

AT Case 1: MsY., 26-years-old, was diagnosed with Alopecia totalis in July, 2006. Early signs of hair loss were attributed to stress from work and school, but within two months all of the hair on her head, eyebrows included, had dropped out. Conventional treatment at two Western hospitals failed to address the problem, and by the time Ms. Y. entered the PriaPlex trial all that remained of her hair were a few black strands in the occipital region (Fig. 9).

Image_015Fig. 10. Ms. Y., 26-years-old, after taking PriaPlex for six months.

Image_016Fig. 11. Ms. Y., 26-years-old, after taking PriaPlex for 18 months.

After taking PriaPlex for six months, new hair began to appear (Fig. 10). After two years of treatment, Ms. Y. fully regrew her hair. (Fig. 11) Two years after the completion of her initial treatment, Ms. Y. reports that her hair is still full and strong, with good volume and no further loss.

AT Case 2: Ms. L. had previously tried every other available treatment to reverse her hair loss, but all failed. She had been completely bald for eight years by the time she enrolled in the trial. After taking the formula for six months, there was no improvement in her condition and Ms. L. decided to discontinue treatment.


Fig. 12. Ms. H., 28-years-old, before taking PriaPlex.

AT Case 3: Ms. H., 28-years-old, experienced serious, unexplained hair loss in the summer of 2007, and within two months had lost all of her hair, including eyebrows (Fig. 12). Ms. H. began to experience new hair growth within one month of taking PriaPlex (Fig. 13). Significantly, Ms. H. reported that her previously white hair was growing back in her natural color, black (Fig. 14). The researchers expected that newly grown hair would not regain its original color for at least 2 or 3 full hair cycles, so her case was especially interesting. Ms. H. reached a near-full recovery in six months (Fig. 15).

Image_018Fig. 13. Ms. H., 28-years-old, after taking PriaPlex for 2 months, revealing thicker, longer hairs in occipital region.


Fig. 14. Ms. H., 28-years-old, after taking PriaPlex for 2 months.


Fig. 15. Ms. H., 28-years-old, after taking PriaPlex for 6 months.

Unfortunately, Ms. H. stopped taking PriaPlex after her initial treatment and experienced a relapse after six months.

Note: Each of these three cases had completely different results: the first successful, the second ineffective, and the third a relapse. Note that in the second case, researchers had previously predicted that newly grown hair would not regain its original color for at least 2 or 3 full hair cycles, so her case was especially interesting. From these three cases, the scientists concluded that the longer one waits before beginning treatment with PriaPlex, the greater the chances for permanent and unrecoverable damage to hair follicles. The scientists also concluded that early treatment at the first signs of hair loss improves the probability of total recovery. Additionally, treatments have to be continued until the underlying condition is eliminated to prevent a future recurrence of hair loss.

Restoring Hair Growth Cycles

Modifying hair follicle growth cycles is a complicated and delicate matter. Current scientific research has managed to identify only a handful of the numerous growth factors and hormones believed to be involved in hair proliferation and growth. For example, Fibroblast Growth Factor 3 (FGF-3) and Fibroblast Growth Factor 5 (FGF-5) are both known to contribute to shifting follicles from hair growth to follicle degradation. Conversely, Insulin-like Growth Factor (IGF-1) and Fibroblast Growth Factor 7 (FGF-7) have been shown to support hair growth by lengthening the telogen (growth) phase of hair follicles. Additionally, Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor (VEGF), Hepatocyte Growth Factor (HGF) and Endothelial Cell Growth Factor (EGF) have also been shown to aid in extending hair growth period.

Currently these growth factors and hormones are useful for filtering hair growth regulators and interpreting their mechanism of action. However, given the gap between the basic research (in vitro) and clinical applications (oral), most current treatments are limited to topical hair growth products. Saw palmetto extract, for example, can inhibit 5α-reductase in vivo, but has no effect when taken orally, which is why it is commonly used in topical hair products. Adenosine, which has been shown to enhance FGF-7 levels in hair follicles, is another popular ingredient for topical hair tonics. Last but not least, numerous plant extracts are added to hair creams to block the effects of FGF-5. Nevertheless, these topical treatments are all restricted to addressing the “surface” issues involved in hair loss, instead of the “root” causes.

Increasing Hair Growth Factors

According to animal studies the formula was found to enhance levels of Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor (Fig. 16) and Hepatocyte Growth Factor (Fig. 17) in hair follicles. PriaPlex was also shown to increase the number of active hair follicles (Fig. 18 while promoting faster growth and increased length of individual hairs (Fig. 19).

Coupled with the inclusion of botanical ingredients known to effectively enhance skin blood circulation, these findings suggest that PriaPlex’s mechanism of action is superior to that of currently available treatments. Human case studies indicate that PriaPlex can prevent hair loss in 85% of subjects within six weeks while promoting hair growth, improving skin texture, and boosting energy levels. Each of these effects were listed in the patent applications that were subsequently approved in both Taiwan and the United States. And because PriaPlex is comprised of essence herbs traditionally used to support healthy endocrine and hormone levels, the formula may also aid in supporting healthy cardiac function.

Numerous clinical cases have shown the US patented formula, if used uninterruptedly with sufficient amount, can stop abnormal hair loss within four to eight weeks. New hair generally begins to appear on the scalp in three to six months time. Additionally, original hair color is likely to emerge amongst white hairs six months later.

U.S. Patent Approval

After years of study, PriaPlex was successfully released as a new food-based formulation for reducing shedding. In 2010, a patent for PriaPlex was approved in both the United States (Patent Number: U.S. 7,838,048 subject: Medical herb composition for inhibiting shedding of a mammal’s hair and method for preparing the same).

Additional Benefits of PriaPlex

In addition to halting hair loss and increasing hair growth, the proprietary blend of nourishing herbs in PriaPlex have also been shown to support and benefit general health. Case studies have shown that those taking PriaPlex report experiencing increased levels of vitality and energy after 1 to 2 weeks, and improved skin tone and texture after 6 to 8 weeks.

Animal tests have also shown that the formula exerts anti-fatigue and liver-protective functions, and in vitro trials have identified significant antioxidant effects. Animal studies have also revealed significant anti-aging benefits.


Age-related hair loss is caused by two major factors: hereditary-pattern baldness and microcirculatory dysfunction from the lack of nutrition to the hair follicles. Many current medical solutions have serious side effects. In recent years, there have been studies that indicate certain food material herbs can alleviate shedding; however, the treatments rendered are limited to external use.

After 10 years of intensive research, development, and clinical evaluation, PriaPlex herbal hair support formula for men and women is now available. PriaPlex addresses hair health from the inside out by combining essence herbs traditionally used to reduce excessive hair loss with a unique blend of botanicals shown to help support circulation to nourish the skin and follicles.* The result is a unique, patented, all-natural herbal supplement for addressing age-related hair loss, promoting healthy hair growth and improving skin tone, energy and vitality.*
