How Supplements Can Help to Prevent Thinning Hair in Men

May 7, 2021

1 Min read

Most men have to address thinning hair and loss at some point. And in doing so, many men choose to take a proactive approach in order to significantly slow or prevent said loss. 

Doing so requires a multifaceted approach, which includes improving healthy habits and diet, mitigating stress, considering prescription or technological remedies (to the tune of minoxidil, finasteride, lasers, plasma injections and more)… It starts to feel like a lot. However, one significant, natural, and easy way to help prevent hair shedding is to supplement one’s diet with targeted, properly dosed vitamins and minerals—ones that strengthen each hair and follicle, while also keeping the scalp balanced and healthy.

That’s why, at Prose, we’re proud to introduce Root Source™, which we believe to be the best supplements for men. Whether you’re trying to get ahead of future loss or strengthen the hairs you still have, Root Source™ has clinically proven ingredients to strengthen hairs and follicles, while helping to increase the growth cycle (anagen) phase of each hair*.

Read on to learn more about Root Source™ and its many benefits for men’s hair.

What Makes Root Source™ the Best Supplements for Men?

There are many solutions on the market that promise to help men prevent or counter hair loss, but we believe that Root Source™ takes a safer, more natural approach. Here is what makes Root Source™ exceptional in its field for men who want to retain and fortify their hair.


What goes into your Prose is just as good as what you get out of it.

1. No harmful side effects: Our key ingredient is millet seed extract, which is gluten-free, safe, and 100% natural. “Millet has been clinically proven (and supported by ex-vivo studies) to stimulate cell proliferation in the hair bulb and increase collagen thickness in order to anchor the root bulb tightly in the scalp*,” says Prose’s Scientific Communications and Raw Materials Manager Thomas Navarro.

2. A daily two-capsule approach to scalp and hair health: While the millet-based softgels encourage hair and bulb strength, a second capsule targets the scalp itself. After all, that’s the ‘soil’ from which each hair grows, thus making scalp health imperative for hair retention. Included in that capsule are antioxidant-rich nutrients like turmeric, saffron, and grape seeds (known to soothe, mitigate the impact of stress on the scalp, while promoting hair vitality); biotin (with its hair-strengthening and growth properties); zinc (known to soothe and minimize itching and flaking); acerola (with its abilities to promote collagen synthesis and combat oxidative stress), among many others*.

3. Help manage the effects of stress: You’ll notice from the above roster of ingredients, that many are rich in antioxidants, which target stress (both environmental and psychological). “Anxiety and psychological stress result in the production of free radicals, and the overproduction of free radicals creates an oxidative stress, and can lead to hair shedding,” says Navarro. “Our two-capsule system has been designed to also supplement stress-induced hair shedding.” Furthermore, since these stress-induced aggressors might otherwise disrupt the natural hair growth cycle, Root Source™ and its nutrients work to help balance hair’s natural growth cycle*. This includes: increasing the growth (anagen) phase; decreasing time spent in the rest (telogen) phase, while reducing hair shedding; and minimizing the latency phase (the time spent waiting before a new hair enters anagen phase and sprouts up).

4. The perfect balance of nutrients for you: When you read other supplements labels and see that you’re ingesting 4000% of any specific nutrient, it’s natural to think you’re going to get a super boost from that particular vitamin or mineral. That is sadly incorrect  and the body sometimes can even experience side effects from overdosing of nutrients. This is why we loaded Root Source™ with the proper amounts of each carefully selected ingredient. “Our capsules are formulated to provide the right amount of vitamins and minerals and are assessed by independent toxicologists as per daily value to make sure they are safe for the body,” says Navarro.
