    TLDR Topical Saw Palmetto and Trichogen Veg Complex increased hair count by 11.9% and improved hair growth in 48% of men with hair loss.
    In a study conducted 8 years ago, 25 male patients with Androgenetic Alopecia were treated with topical Saw Palmetto and 10% Trichogen Veg Complex for four months. The treatment resulted in an 11.9% increase in total hair count and a 38% increase in the anagen/telogen hair ratio. Improvement was noted in 48% of the patients, while 36% saw no difference. The study concluded that these treatments were effective and safe, but suggested that larger, randomized controlled trials would provide more conclusive data.
