How Pantogar® works

Hair cells are among the cells that divide most actively in the human body. If you were to string together the growth of each hair, 30m of hair would be created per day over the entire head.

Pantogar® capsules provide the hair roots with a variety of nutrients that are important for the formation of new hair cells.

Pantogar® capsules thus stimulate the hair cells to form new cells; the hair goes from the resting or loss phase back into the active growth phase. Pantogar® capsules are well tolerated.

The Pantogar® active ingredients

Cystine, an amino acid, is largely responsible for the structure of hair keratin and promotes the growth of healthy hair.

B-group vitamins, such as thiamine (vitamin B1) and calcium pantothenate (vitamin B5), are indispensable for the high metabolic activity in the formation of new hair cells.

Medicinal yeast has a high content of vitamins, essential amino acids, minerals, trace elements and enzymes and is a rich source of B-group vitamins. It has beneficial effects on the metabolism of the skin and hair.

Keratin, a sulphur-rich protein, forms the main component of the hair.

How to use Pantogar®

Take one Pantogar® capsule three times per day for 3-6 months. Pantogar® capsules should be swallowed whole with a little liquid.

The key to success is patience
The treatment period is related to the growth cycle: hair growth and hair loss are a slow process and it can take some weeks for a telogen hair to actually fall out. This means that even after the start of treatment, hairs which were already in “shedding mode” before the start of treatment may fall out.

During treatment with Pantogar® capsules, the metabolism of the hair root is activated directly and the formation of new cells is stimulated. Hair loss is halted and the hair returns to the growth phase, restoring the natural balance. However, as hair only grows around one centimeter per month, it takes a few months for the success of the treatment to become visible.

Remember that everybody is unique, so Pantogar® capsules take effect at a different speed – depending on the phase of life most of your hair is currently in and how quickly it reacts to the supply of active substances.

Why do I have to use the products for at least three months?

The hair root usually takes three months until it can fully resume its activity and produce new hair cells. Unfortunately, many users become impatient and abandon the therapy after only a few weeks. Studies have shown that as many as 30 percent of patients no longer comply with their treatment plan after just 10 days.

In the directions for use included with each medicine, you will find information about the dosage. Your doctor or pharmacist may also give you a recommendation that is different to the directions for use for your particular case. The term “compliance” is used to describe taking your medication (e.g. Pantogar®) according to the recommended guidelines.

The dosage recommendation and treatment duration are determined by clinical studies. This knowledge is translated into the dosage recommendations, which you will find in the directions for use of a medication.

Take one Pantogar® capsule three times per day for 3-6 months. Pantogar® capsules should be swallowed whole with a little liquid.

Tolerability

Pantogar® is generally well tolerated and supplies the hair with the nutrients that it needs to form new hair cells. And it does this in the exact dosage and combination that optimally activates hair growth.

The recommended dosage of Pantogar® is 3 times a day over a period of 3 to 6 months.
