When the pandemic struck, the importance of health and wellbeing gained a new meaning. However, the strain on the healthcare services meant that it was harder to access them. For this reason, people turned to other avenues. When it came to men’s health, Numan was the first port of call.
Men’s health can be a sensitive issue. Admitting to health issues can be seen as a sign of weakness, rather than strength. This is especially the case when it comes to sexual health and hair loss. Both of these are intensely private matters and can potentially be embarrassing.
Numan helps to reduce the stigma around asking for help. The company specialises in digital healthcare. It provides free, online consultations that help to determine which treatment is best for you. Once the treatment is approved, it is delivered to your door in discreet packaging within 24 hours. If you are not happy with the service, you cancel at any time.
Numan offers complete transparency when it comes to its services. Take for example its Beard Growth Kit. Numan’s Topical Spray with minoxidil promotes beard growth by dilating the blood vessels that supply nutrient-rich blood to hair follicles. However, this does not mean it is suitable for everyone and Numan says just that when asked if minoxidil is suitable for me:
‘If you are unable to grow facial hair due to a condition, have defined patches on your beard where hair cannot grow, or have never been able to grow facial hair, it is unlikely that topical minoxidil will be an effective treatment for you.’
Even once the treatment is delivered, Numan’s dedicated team of experts are on hand to support you every step of the way. Numan is supported by the clinical team of Professor Sam Shah, Sarah Morgan and Luke Pratsides. Shah leads the strategy, Morgan is the superintendent pharmacist and Pratsides is the lead GP.
In terms of treatments, Numan offers a variety of services. In terms of sexual health, Numan helps with both erectile dysfunction (ED) and premature ejaculation. There are four products available: Sildenafil, Tadalafil Daily, Tadalafil and Viagra Connect. Following the online consultation, Numan’s dedicated team of healthcare professionals will recommend the product best suited to your individual needs.
Whilst medicines treat the core problem of erectile dysfunction, addressing the underlying cause is equally important, according to Dr Pratsides:
‘Taking medicine as prescribed is important for treating conditions and overall long-term health and wellbeing. Erectile dysfunction symptoms can be effectively treated with ED tablets, but it’s important to address the underlying causes of ED as well.’
Numan’s website has articles that address and explore erectile dysfunction. Here, people can acquaint and educate themselves with the issue more broadly.
All of the treatments provided by Numan are fully licensed in the UK. Moreover, Numan’s treatments come at competitive prices with savings of up to 60% on the price of each tablet.
Numan does not just help with sexual health. Whether it is hair loss, beard growth, supplementation or quitting smoking, there is a treatment available. One product that offers a deep analysis of your health is the At-Home Health MOT. A simple blood test measures biomarkers such as testosterone and cholesterol. It also tests how well the thyroid, liver and kidneys are working.
After the test, one of Numan’s clinicians will be in contact. They will then walk you through your results and offer advice on how to manage your health going forward.
The success of Numan and its business model has not gone unnoticed. Just this week, Numan raised $40million in a Series B funding round. This was led by White Star Capital with contributions from existing investors Novator, VNV Global, Anthemis Exponential, Colle Capital and new investor Hanwha Group.
Numan plans to use this fresh influx of cash to expand its business. Numan has already made strategic acquisitions of businesses in the UK and Sweden. With this funding, Numan can make similar moves. Speaking after the latest round of funding, Sokratis Papafloratos, CEO and founder of Numan, said:
‘This funding is a significant milestone on our journey to help millions of men be healthier. White Star Capital is one of the best investors in our space, and I’m delighted to be working together along with a wider team of brilliant investors.’
Numan has a bright future. With this significant investment, Numan can expand its business and help even more men take control of their health.
