Can you tell me if this new Heradone product has any value? It sounds like an ad for another snake oil, but it appeared in Google News when searching for hair loss news so I wanted your opinion.
The claims of the producers of this product are: â€œNew Hair Loss Solution That Promotes The Natural Balance of Your Scalp While Stimulating Blood Flow To The Root Of Your Thinning Hair!â€
There has never been any evidence that increasing the circulation to the scalp increases hair volume or numbers. The reason that balder people have less circulation to the scalp is because there are less hairs and those that are there are smaller needing less blood flow, so the body only supplies what is needed to support what is there. Our body is very smart when it comes to that. The muscles of a bodybuilder have more blood supply than that skinny, flabby guy at the beach who never exercises. That is because the bodybuilder’s body (muscles) knows what is needed. The same is the situation for runners, bikers, swimmers, etc…
I find claims like ‘natural balance of your scalp’ are ridiculous. It uses that claim on the product’s website. Does that mean that the scalp is balancing something like what a ballerina would be doing when she is up on her toes? What does natural balance mean?
Just reading the press release should be enough to give you the answers you’re looking for — there’s no doctors mentioned by name, yet they exclaim “medical experts say [Heradone] is packed with natural vitamins and nutrients.” So they are experts, yet none can attach their name to the product? I guess just taking a look at the Heradone website answers the final questions I’d have —
“These products are not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease.”
Yeah, that sounds about right.
“The individuals shown are paid models, and not necessarily Selmedica Healthcare customers.”
Remember, buyer beware.
