Because optimizing cardiovascular exercise is one of the lifestyle preventions that can help prevent hair loss, you will also receive an analysis of the genes involved in fitness and athletic performance.

This app produces a report that is confidential and easy-to-read. Your report not only details your genetic risk of developing male pattern baldness but also provides non-technical, straightforward information about prevention that’s specific to your genes. This will enable you to become proactive in protecting you against hair loss.

Hair loss affects the majority of men in America. By age 35, more than 65% of men will have noticeable hair loss, and by age 50, more than 85%. Some even begin to notice significant hair loss before the age of 21.

Hair loss can negatively impact one’s lifestyle. Men with hair loss often report a decrease in self-confidence, negative effects on interpersonal relationships and even problems in their professional lives. More than 95% of the time, hair loss is caused by male pattern baldness (androgenetic alopecia), which usually manifests as a receding hairline or thinning hair on the crown (top) of the head.

The  Good  News

Hair loss is determined by both your genes and nongenetic factors, such as your lifestyle. Based upon the results of this app, you can use the information contained within your genes to institute a plan of personalized prevention that may significantly delay or prevent hair loss.
