Surgical Center Offering Nutrafol® Stress Adaptogen

At Virginia Surgical Center, we are proud to provide our valued patients throughout McLean, VA and the surrounding areas with the Nutrafol® Stress Adaptogen. Let’s face it; life can be pretty stressful at times. Research has shown that stress is a common cause of thinning hair. During times of stress, hair follicles are impacted by the body’s responses. Stress can cause the release of cortisol, which can lead to follicle regression. Substance P may also be released, which causes the area surrounding the follicle to be vulnerable to attack by affecting its immune privilege. Lastly, stress increases the corticotropin-releasing hormone, which binds to the follicle and causes the production of more stress hormones.

What is the Nutrafol® Stress Adaptogen?

The Nutrafol® Stress Adaptogen is specifically designed for those with thinning hair. This stress adaptogen provides extra support for stress as a root cause of thinning hair. Stress adaptogens can help balance cortisol levels while improving adaptation and resilience to stress. Adaptogens can improve the body’s response to stress by helping naturally balance stress hormones. This is proven to help facilitate a healthy hair growth cycle. Stress adaptogens should be taken as a daily complement to Nutrafol®.

The Primary Causes of Hair Loss

Various factors can cause hair loss, including heredity factors, hormonal changes, certain medical conditions, natural aging, and more. Hair loss can even be caused by various lifestyle changes, including toxic environments, stress, and a poor diet. Stress comes in all shapes and sizes. Stress can cause excessive shedding or even all-over hair thinning. Anyone can be susceptible to hair loss.

Stress: An Underlying Cause of Hair Loss

About 75% of adults reported experiencing moderate-to-high levels of stress in the past month and that their stress has increased in the past year. This percentage has likely increased due to the current COVID-19 pandemic. Both acute and chronic stress can disrupt hair growth. Traditionally, during periods of increased stress, cortisol signals the hair follicle to prematurely shift from anagen to telogen, where hair prepares to shed three to six months later. However, repeated exposure to stressful situations also play a role in the disruption of normal hair growth cycling. Stress not only has a direct effect on the hair follicle, but indirect effects via other systems in the body including the endocrine and digestive systems.
