    TLDR The nutritional supplement improved hair density and reduced hair loss in women with female pattern hair loss.
    In a study involving 120 women with female pattern hair loss (FPHL), a 6-month treatment with a nutritional supplement containing omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, lycopene, vitamin C, and vitamin E resulted in significant improvements in hair density, a decrease in the percentage of telogen hair, and an increase in the proportion of nonvellus anagen hair. The supplemented group also reported a reduction in hair loss and improvements in hair diameter and density. A high satisfaction rate of 92.4% was observed among the subjects, with no serious adverse events. The study concluded that this nutritional supplement is an effective alternative treatment for FPHL, enhancing scalp coverage and hair condition.
