X tablet mainly used as a treatment for a condition known as Benign Prostatic Hypertplasia, which obviously occurs in men. Symptoms include difficulty urinating, getting up during the night to urinate, hesitation at the start of urination, and decreased urinary flow.

If blood flow is blocked to the dermal papilla then essential nutrients and oxygen cannot reach the hair root and so the hair begins to become dull and may eventually die.
