from some type of baldness; and globally, the number of balding men nears one thousand million. Few things in life will seed greater anxiety in a man’s mind than the thought of going bald at an early age. Which is why when I turned 35 and noticed my hair was thinning up top, I despaired. It should not have been a surprise to me, but I was completely taken back by the sudden onset of my thinning hair. For months I suffered, and this became the most emotionally draining period of my life. I tried all manner of remedies to no avail until, almost as if by luck, I heard about probiotics. In a matter of months, my hair loss had stopped, and I began to spot new growth. My life turned around, and the nightmare ended.

Let me tell you how probiotics stopped my hair loss…..





Before you run out and purchase the first item with a probiotic label that you find, let us establish a clear description. A number of definitions have been used for the term “probiotic” over the years; in actuality, the World Health Organization defines probiotic supplements as those composed of “live microorganisms, which when administered in adequate amounts, confer a health benefit on the host.” This definition differs slightly from those used in the past in several ways. Although probiotics have always been defined to be live microorganisms, for the longest time the term was limited to oral supplements with specific gastrointestinal outcomes. This is important because it opened up the possibility of numerous microbial strains that provide varied beneficial effects such as the one I experienced with my hair loss.

Just to give you an idea, here are a few effective and highly beneficial microbial strains that are commonly found in probiotic supplements:

Lactobacillus Acidophilus: Probably the most researched and clinically proven probiotic known to man. L. Acidophilus confers incredibly powerful benefits that aid with digestive ailments, improve blood pressure and serum lipid levels, reduce the severity of various allergic reactions, and enhance absorption of micronutrients.

Bifidobacterium Lactis: This strain of probiotic microbes is very powerful. Clinical studies have repeatedly proven that B. Lactis improves immunity, inhibits tumor growth, improves digestion and can significantly reduce blood cholesterol levels

Streptococcus thermophilus: S. Thermophilus is another well-researched strain offers many digestive and immunity benefits. For example, S. Thermophilus increases the body’s production of lactase which makes it a fantastic tool for individuals who have trouble digesting milk and dairy. S. Thermophilus is also able to decrease your risk of infection from other harmful bacteria drastically.




Whenever I tell people about the success, I had with probiotic therapy regarding my hair loss most of them react the same way. They all want to know how something that is usually found in yogurt cures my hair loss. The answer has a lot to do with the biological mechanisms that drive hair to fall out in the first place.

The structural integrity, functional capacity, and regenerative potential of human hair are known to be influenced, to a great degree, by a plethora of factors. Hair loss is often tied to genetic processes, but it is also influenced by diet, lifestyle, environment, disease, medications, drug abuse, hormonal fluctuations, psychological stress, and even the type of hat you often wear.

Dietary probiotic supplements are perfectly positioned to positively influence many of these factors while at the same time mediating or ameliorating the adverse effects caused by others. Probiotics will improve your entire immune apparatus, nutritional uptake, and absorption, enhance your basal metabolic function, and improve your body’s response to inflammatory processes. Therefore, probiotic supplements can help treat the underlying factors that might be causing your hair to fall out.


It is a fact that most common forms of hair loss begin to develop due to anomalous hair follicle cycling and changes in the morphology of the hair follicle caused by inflammation. Current conventional treatments for hair loss do not specifically target these processes because the medical community has to yet been able to properly identify the molecular pathways that mediate abnormal hair follicle growth.

Probiotics can help to reduce follicular inflammation, which is the central element of hair loss. Histological studies have shown that telogen hair follicles that undergo inflammatory processes often result in the sudden development of telogen effluvium. Telogen effluvium is a type of hair loss that is characterized by a marked thinning of hair. This type of hair disease is typically caused by an adverse reaction to the presences of psychological stressors.



The immune system consists of organs and differentiated cell types that induce a cellular response mediated by antibodies. Complex cellular interactions dictate the state of your body’s immune response. If this system becomes compromised, hair loss often develops.

Alopecia Areata is an autoimmune disease that is characterized by the appearance of splotchy bald spots. The principal pathological mechanism involves a failure by the body’s immune system to recognize the hair follicle as its own. The body’s own immune response proceeds to attack and destroy the hair follicle.


Regular use of probiotic supplements has been unequivocally proven to provide the body with immense benefits. The least of which is a significant strengthening of the body’s immune response and its capacity to modulate inflammatory processes as well as its ability to endure stress. All in all, the end result is that if your hair is falling out and no other method is proving fruitful, perhaps it is time you try probiotics today.
