TLDR Connarus semidecandrus Jack extract promotes hair growth and thickness, reduces prostate cancer cell growth, and could potentially be used as a treatment for hair loss.
The study investigated the anti-alopecia effects of Connarus semidecandrus Jack ethanol extract (Cs-EE), a plant traditionally used for fever relief. The research showed that Cs-EE promoted hair growth and thickness in a testosterone-induced androgenic alopecia mouse model by reducing 5α-reductase activity and androgen receptor protein levels, and inhibiting programmed cell death. Cs-EE also suppressed prostate cancer cell proliferation and stimulated human hair-follicle dermal papilla cell proliferation. The study concludes that Cs-EE could potentially be used as a treatment for androgenic alopecia by regulating the androgenic or apoptotic axis.View this study on mdpi.com →
