According to the study of dermatology, the normal hair loss rate counts to 100 hairs per day. The renewal system of the human body justifies this much of hair loss which occurs mainly by combing, shampooing or styling. Relaxation and good diet are two key things that can fight most of the hair loss conditions to prevent hair loss.

I have been on bovine capsules for a month now. It was taking two different thyroid pills a day. Now this is all I take and feel great and I am so glad I stopped taking synthetic drugs. It was making me sick and weak most of the time.
