Brief Answer:
Possible by effect on thyroid & metabolic rate

Detailed Answer:
Dear XXXX,

Thanks for your query.

Oxy elite pro acts by keeping the body alert, boosting the metabolism, activates the thyroid gland and turn off the receptors that tell the body to store fat.
In this way it helps in weight reduction.

There are no sufficient studies done on this product's safety. However as you are on this product for prolonged period of time, by the virtue of changing thyroid gland function it may be responsible for hair loss.

I would suggest you to stop this product for 2-3 months and see if hair fall improves. If it does then there is a definite association. It would also be helpful to check your thyroid hormones at a laboratory.

Hope this helps. Let me know if you need clarifications.

Wishing you a Good Health.
Let me know if I need to clarify further.
