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. To the health professional, hair loss in women may seem a complex area requiring specialist knowledge for diagnosis purposes. Whilst this is true for a small proportion of cases, 95% of hair loss cases can be divided into just 2 aetiological types: genetic hair loss (20%) and CTE (80%). 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. When serum ferritin falls below a certain point which, varies to a degree between individuals (typically 40-70µg), the hair growth cycle is disrupted and hair shedding results.
For some women, this results in gradual hair loss – the end result to the sufferer being a ‘thinner’ ponytail or less hair to clip back. In others, the hair loss is very obvious with more hair in the brush and in the sink after shampooing. 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. A low serum ferritin does not necessarily mean that the patient is anaemic (i.e. reduced haemoglobin level), CTE may occur without changes to haemoglobin concentration. Research has shown that if the serum ferritin is raised above the individual’s ‘trigger point’, then normal hair growth re-establishes. The studies that have supported this fact have also identified the importance of using a specific combination of nutrients which are present in Florisene®. Florisene® is a clinically-relevant iron supplementation programme, consisting of a highly absorbable form of iron, a significant level of the essential amino acid, L-lysine, plus 2 other known iron-synergists. 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.
