The application of ostrich antibodies to human health and well-being is based on the work of Dr. Yasuhiro Tsukamoto. He is currently Dean of the Graduate School of Life and Environmental Sciences at Kyoto Prefectural University in Japan, and will become President of the University in April, 2020. Over the past 20 years, Dr. Tsukamoto and his team have focused on the development of antibodies from ostrich eggs against various pathogens, allergens, other substances. An example is OstriGen’s new product, OstriGrow, which employs a combination of four antibodies to combat male and female pattern baldness.
Over its 23 million years as a species, the ostrich has developed the most powerful immune system on the planet. Ostriches react to a wider range of antigens and produce a meaningful level of antibodies (IgY) in their blood within two weeks of antigen immunization. Within 4 to 6 weeks of immunization, the IgY appears the yolk of their eggs. A hen ostrich will produce up to 4 grams of IgY per egg, so over her 55 year productive lifetime, she will produce an average of 22 kilograms of antibodies.
OstriGrow is based on solid research that has been published in respected journals.
In our latest study, we actually measured hair growth by counting the number of hairs in test scalp areas before and after three months of applying OstriGrow. Hair count increase was 69% for males and 73% for females. You can see the details of this latest study by clicking on:
Applying OstriGrow is easy. Simply spray it on your head once a day and massage it into your scalp. View complete instructions.

I achieved great results within 2 months. I have been using the product for over two years. I just spray it on one or two times a week now to maintain the hair growth. It is so easy to use, and there have been no side effects.
By the 3rd month of use my hair was much thicker especially in the hairline which had thinned considerably. I still use the spray at night and wash it off when I shower in the morning. Great stuff with great results!
It's hard to believe that at my age of 70 I saw hair growth in the front and top of my scalp after approximately 10 weeks. Though never completely bald my hair was so thin that you could easily see my scalp. Now the new hair covers nicely. I am very happy with the results.
Our research shows that OstriGrow helps people with male or female pattern baldness.

Here are answers to some frequently asked questions:
The hair follicle is in effect a little factory. It goes through a manufacturing process that initiates new growth and nourishes the hair as it grows in the follicle. OstriGrow can help initiate the process where it has been stalled. We can’t make the process go any faster.
You are most likely losing hair because your genetics make your hair follicles extra sensitive to a hormone that your body produces. That hormone, dihydrotestosterone (DHT), causes the follicles to narrow and the capillaries that feed the follicles to constrict. This interferes with the growth of new hair to replace hair that falls out.
There are many approaches and products that attempt to deal with this problem. None of them work directly to neutralize DHT, the actual cause. OstriGrow is the ONLY product on the market that neutralizes DHT, along with other bacteria that keep hair from growing.
DHT, the hormone that causes Male and Female Pattern Baldness, must bind to proteins, called androgen receptors, in the surface of the follicle in order to create the hair growth problems. The antibodies in OstriGrow bind with the portion of the DHT molecule that is involved in the binding with the androgen receptors. This prevents the DHT molecules from binding with the receptors. This stops the process that prevents hair growth.
We recommend using OstriGrow daily until your hair grows. After that, you must continue to apply the product about twice a week to maintain your hair. Without OstriGrow, the DHT produced by your body will not be neutralized.
Antibodies are chemical molecules that are produced by the immune systems of humans and animals in response to the presence of a foreign substance, an “antigen.” The antibodies bind with the antigen, rendering it ineffective.
Avian (bird) antibodies have been used for decades to produce Immunoglobulin Y (IgY) because IgY is found in higher concentrations in egg yolks. While most research has used chickens as a source for customized antibodies, the ostrich immune system is particularly good, and of course the yolks are much bigger.
When an ostrich is vaccinated with DHT, a foreign substance to an ostrich, the resulting antibodies that are purified from the yolk of its eggs will bind with DHT wherever it is encountered. Fortunately for us, that includes human hair follicles.
Don't worry. Vaccinating ostriches with DHT causes no harm to the birds.
5α -reductase is an enzyme that helps the formation of DHT. So, in addition to neutralizing the DHT that has been produced in the follicle, the product slows down the DHT production process itself. Staphylococcus aureus and Pseudomonas aeruginosa are bacteria present on the skin surface that can interfere with the penetration of antibodies into the follicle.
It is impossible for OstriGrow to make hair grow where it has never grown before.
The antibodies are mixed into an alcohol solution that is mostly water. If it gets on your existing hair, it will dry and evaporate. OstriGrow is not sticky or oily and does not have an odor.
No side effects have been reported over the three years the product has been tested. It would be very surprising if there were a side effect, since the antibodies do not interact with any part of the human body, only with a hormone that the human body produces. OstriGrow does not enter your blood stream; it merely neutralizes DHT.
The best way to use OstriGrow is to fit its use into your lifestyle. The only requirement is to spray the product on the affected areas, rub it in, and don’t do anything else to your hair for at least 15 minutes. Some people use it after they shower. Others put it on at night and just let it dry while they sleep. The more it fits into your lifestyle, the easier it will be to stick with its use.
Unfortunately, if your hair loss is due to a medical condition other than AGA or is the result of a medical treatment, OstriGrow will not help you grow hair. However, the vast majority of hair loss is the result of Male or Female Pattern Baldness and OstriGrow has proven success at helping to reverse that. Please note, if your hair loss started more than 7 years ago, it will be more difficult to reactivate your hair follicles. The best results have been achieved by individuals who have started losing their hair five years ago or less.
