The effectiveness of taking fenugreek seed concentrate and micronutrients on hair loss and hair
growth was examined within the framework of an extensive nutritional science study. Fenugreek seed
has already been valued since centuries for its trichophytic characteristics (when applied externally).
Nowadays fenugreek seed is particularly effective when utilised as a nutritional supplement.
The product "Arcon-Tisane plus - Fenugreek + Micronutrient Hair Capsules" that was tested in the study
contains a concentrate of fenugreek seed, which has been enriched with micronutrients.
This includes the vitamins from the B group such as B1, B2, B6, nicotinamide, calcium D-Pantothenate,
biotin and folic acid, vitamins C and E as well as the trace elements zinc, copper, selenium and iodine.
The study was carried out by the internationally recognised Hamburg-based institute "proDERM" in conformity
with the guidelines of good clinical practices under the guidance of "BioTeSys" - an institute for biological
chemistry and nutritional science at the University of Hohenheim, with headquarters in Esslingen. The study
was initiated by Arcon International in Singen.
