How to contribute to healthy hair growth
Are you getting enough of it? We’re not talking about milk or Zzzzzz’s, we’re talking about hair growth, of course!
If you’re looking for a supplement to start with for thicker and healthier hair, our Biotin should be at the top of your list – especially if you’re vegetarian or vegan.
When it comes to hair growth, biotin helps the body break down protein, which is essential for hair growth and can go on to boost the rate of follicle growth.
Interestingly, multiple studies have found that biotin assists in the regrowth of hair in those who are deficient in this vitamin. So if you’re falling short on your biotin intake, this supplement has you covered.
We’ve also included 55ug of selenium and 10mg of zinc (Albion™) in our Biotin supplement to supercharge hair health.
Like biotin, zinc also plays a key role in protein absorption, which is essential to having healthy, strong and thick hair. Zinc is also important for hair follicle development, which contributes to an improved rate of hair growth.
The added selenium in this supplement helps boost the health of the scalp and keeps hair nourished by encouraging regular hair growth.
It’s easy to see why our Biotin formula is one of our most loved hair care supplements.
“Like many other parts of your body, your hair also requires multiple nutrients to grow healthy. And it may not come as a surprise to learn that many nutritional deficiencies are closely linked to thinning hair and even hair loss,” explains expert nutritionist Riya Lakhani ANutr.
Vitamin C and Hair Growth
Talking of our most loved supplements, our Vitamin C supplement is another one to add to your hair care routine.
One of vitamin C’s handy functions is to help your body absorb iron, a mineral necessary for hair growth. Since iron deficiency can be a key reason for hair loss, getting enough vitamin C is vital for improving hair growth.
Vitamin C is also a powerful antioxidant, which helps boost blood flow throughout your body. And when there is increased blood supply to your scalp, there is more stimulation of your hair follicles, which may also help promote hair growth.
You can rest assured knowing that you’ll be getting plenty of vitamin C with our supplement, as each serving provides 1,000mg of vitamin C.
