" Studies involving 36,990 men showed that balding on the top of the head is correlated with the higher risk of heart disease."
Male baldness has been associated with a higher risk of heart disease. Scientific studies suggest that there is a strong correlation between male baldness and an increased risk for heart disease. Heart disease is the number one cause of death worldwide. Every year, around 18 million people die from heart disease.
The Link Between Crown (Vertex) Baldness and Heart Disease in Men
Several studies involving 36,990 men showed that balding on the top of the head, known as vertex or crown baldness, is correlated with the risk of heart disease. The data indicated that the severity of the baldness, especially on the crown of the scalp, mirrored the risk of suffering from heart disease. Men with severe vertex baldness have a 48% higher risk of heart disease. A moderate vertex baldness was associated with a 36% increased risk of heart disease. Men with mild vertex baldness have a 18% higher risk of suffering from heart disease.
A study involving more than 2,000 men age below 40 years old showed that young men who suffer from coronary artery disease were prematurely bald or grey (BBC, 30-November-2017).

The Link Between Frontal Baldness and Heart Disease in Men
Studies also showed that frontal baldness slightly increases the risk of heart disease in men by 11%.
A study on 1,495 men age 20 to 40 who suffer from androgenetic hair loss revealed that frontal baldness is caused by the sensitivity to dihydrotestosterone. This study also showed that minoxidil was not effective for frontal baldness (receding hairline). Minoxidil increases blood flow to hair follicles, however, it doesn't act against dihydrotestosterone, the hormone which triggers hair loss in some men. On its own, minoxidil is not effective for androgenetic alopecia.

How to Reduce Vertex and Frontal Baldness in Men
As a scientist who has been affected by hereditary hair loss, I have been testing and developing hair loss formulas for over 15 years. Studies showed that peppermint oil is better than minoxidil at promoting hair growth. Menthol, the main active component of peppermint oil is believed to have excellent hair-growth-boosting properties. Studies on hair loss also suggest that caffeine and rosemary oil reduce the level of dihydrotestosterone in hair follicles.
If you suffer from hair loss or thinning hair, use Hair Loss Solution for Men and Women everyday. As hair follicles rest for about 100 days after hair fall before they start growing new hair and on average, hair grows about half an inch per month, it is crucial to use Hair Loss Solution for at least 6 months. Hair Loss Solution helps reduce hair fall, rejuvenate hair follicles and promote hair growth. Formulated with menthol, caffeine, niacinamide, vitamin E, rosemary, cedarwood, thyme, lavender, yang ylang and lemon essential oils to reverse the damaging effects of dihydrotestosterone on hair follicles.

Inflammation, Baldness and Heart Disease
Inflammation is our own body's reaction to injury, toxins or attack from pathogenic microorganisms such as viruses and bacterias. It is part of the body's defense mechanism, however, any inflammation that lasts longer than it should be, can cause too much damage to the body.
Chronic inflammation has been associated with many diseases including cancer, diabetes and heart disease. Beside the external factors, chronic inflammation can be caused internally by the excess fat in the belly area (Harvard Medical School). Overtime, chronic inflammation triggers atherosclerosis, the condition where fats and cholesterols buildup in and on the artery walls. If left untreated, it causes serious heart disease and reduces the blood flow to hair follicles. Chronic inflammation is one of the major factors in hair loss and baldness.
To reduce the risk of having chronic inflammation in your body, you need to maintain a healthy weight and pay attention to your waist-to-hip-ratio. To reduce the risk of heart disease, men should have a less than 0.9 waist-to-hip ratio while women should have a less than 0.8 waist-to-hip ratio. Limit the consumption of deep-fried and barbecued foods, salt and sugar including salty and sugary foods and beverages.
