Do you know why pigeons lose their feathers?

Fancy pigeons are quite easy to raise and breed. Regardless if you breed fancy pigeons for show, performance or for fun, with minimum investment of money and time you will get a lot of happiness from this activity.

People who have pigeons living with them know that pigeons replace their old feathers with new ones at regular intervals, which is called moulting. The fact is that their moult is controlled by temperature and light, reason why they lose their feathers on their head, around their neck, and from almost their entire body usually in the late summer or even in early fall.

Unlike humans, who lose their hair due to hormones, diseases, aging, stress and other causes, pigeons lose their feathers in order to grow new, stronger feathers that will help them regulate their body temperature and repel moisture as well.

According to this study, men and women lose their hair mostly because of hormones and due to a genetically inherited sensitivity of follicles to Dihydrotestosterone. Pigeons can have too bald spots due to illnesses, injuries or parasites, but most men and women who are affected by hair loss experience a progressive thinning of hair or a receding hairline.

Male pattern hair loss represents almost 95% of hair loss cases, when men affected by it experience a hair receding from temples and balding of crown. Dihydrotestosterone or DHT attaches to the follicles and blocks them from getting the nutrients necessary. The follicles shrink and the hair grows thinner, finer and shorter, hairs strands fall out and some follicles stop developing new hairs.

Provillus has been developed to block the production of DHT. Containing ingredients that also repair the follicles and nourish the scalp, Provillus has two formulas, for men and for women, which help them prevent and stop hair loss. This remarkable treatment for hair loss stimulates the regrowth of new and healthy hair, rebuilding the follicles and fortifying hair strands as well.

Just like a proper nutrition will help pigeons grow their feathers faster, the nutrients contained in the formula of Provillus will encourage the regrowth of healthy hair.

The powerful ingredients included in the composition of Provillus capsules for men are Vitamin B6, Biotin, Muira Puama, Pumpkin Seed extract, Uva-Ursi, Zinc, Magnesium, Eleuthero Root, Stinging Nettle and Saw Palmetto, while the topical treatment contains Minoxidil. All of these ingredients are FDA approved and proven to fortify and strengthen hair strands, to revitalize hair and to reverse the manifestations of hair loss.

Fancy pigeons with new feathers will appear a lot better at exhibitions, but men who regain their healthy and youthful hair due to Provillus will significantly increase their self-esteem. But Provillus does not increase only the self-esteem and appearance of hair of men who follow this treatment, but it also improves the health of follicles and hair strands.

Being rich in nutrients that replenish the health of the consumers, Provillus promotes hair growth in men just like a protein-based diet will help pigeons grow faster their feathers. Why should you reconcile with the idea of staying bald for the rest of your life? Get Provillus and enjoy regaining a youthful and healthy hair!
