It stimulates the growth and proliferation of hair follicle stem cells to activate and bolster the anagen growth cycle, by nourishing and engaging the complex signaling molecules and the pathways associated with anagen growth.

However, we feel that based on the results we’ve seen, most people should start seeing a noticeable difference within 3 months, which requires a minimum of 3 months of continuous use.
While we recommend at least 5 months of use, you can discontinue it at any time without lasting side-effects. In our research, the best results that we've seen were from those who've maintained continued use over the course of a year.
