Fenugreek Seed Extract a Treatment for Male & Female Pattern Baldness and a Potential Alternative Crop for the Canadian Prairies

by the staff of Innovative Consulting Solutions Inc.

Fenugreek contains certain bio-active constituents for hair loss. However, in order to understand these constituents’ use for male/femail pattern baldness (MPB), one must forst understand how MPB occurs. Each hair grows from a pocket in the skin called the hair follicle. During its growing phase, the follicle has a bulb-shaped bottom, the center of which is called the dermal papilla. The papilla is fed by very small blood vessels, which bring it food and oxygen and take wastes away. The papilla is highly sensitive to hormones and chemicals secreted by the body (or ingested as a medicine) which impacts hair growth.
