Our UnTangled Hair Supplement is formulated with top quality ingredients that are known to provide beneficial nutrients that contribute to healthy, lustrous hair and improved hair growth. Supporting healthy hair is a priority, and we do so with these five potent groups of ingredients:
1) Marine Collagen
Supplements containing marine collagen provide many nutrients that contribute to hair health. Marine collagen consists of proteins and glycosaminoglycans derived from the scales and bones of fish and mollusks. It has superior bioavailability when compared to bovine or porcine collagen, and is rich in essential amino acids, such as glycine and proline, which trigger our body’s own natural production of collagen. All of these nutrients are essential building blocks for thick, healthy hair and increased hair growth.
2) Essential Vitamins
Foundation Skincare’s UnTangled Hair Supplement also contains key essential vitamins that contribute to hair growth:
Vitamin A is used to treat hair loss and promote healthy hair, as it assists in the production of healthy sebum, an oily substance that the scalp secretes to nourish and moisturize hair follicles and prevent dryness and breakage in the hair. Foundation Skincare’s UnTangled Hair Supplement uses two sources of vitamin A; preformed vitamin A and provitamin A. Preformed vitamin A (also known as retinol) is found in animal products such as fortified milk, cheese, liver, and cream. Provitamin A is found in plant-based foods, with the most common type being beta-carotene. Vitamin A is a fat-soluble vitamin that contributes to eye health, and nourishes skin, bones, and other tissues throughout the body. A powerful antioxidant, vitamin A also repairs cell damage.
Our skin naturally produces vitamin D3 when exposed to sunlight, which is why it is known as the "sunshine vitamin". Although it is classified as a vitamin, the body synthesizes D-3 into a hormone that circulates in the bloodstream and assists in the absorption of calcium and phosphorus from the food we ingest. Vitamin D nourishes healthy bones and skin and contributes to hair growth by promoting the creation of new hair follicles, improving thickness and reducing shedding. It is estimated that as many as 40% of U.S. adults may not be getting enough vitamin D in their diets, and vitamin D deficiency affects almost 1 billion people worldwide. This is why a clean source of vitamin D (such as that found in Foundation Skincare’s UnTangled Hair Supplement) can benefit overall health, while also contributing to the health of the hair follicle.
Vitamin C is a water-soluble nutrient derived mostly from fresh fruit that acts as an antioxidant, protecting cells from damage caused by free radicals. It also protects against deficiencies of the immune system, heart disease, and eye disease. Vitamin C also helps our bodies absorb iron, a nutrient that contributes to strong, healthy hair. It helps build collagen, which supports hair growth, and strengthens the hair, making it a highly effective ingredient for the UnTangled Hair Supplement.
Vitamin E, required for the proper function of organs in the body, is a fat-soluble vitamin and a potent antioxidant that helps to repair and prevent cell damage. It may also improve the overall health of your scalp and hair by nourishing the hair’s protective cuticle and restoring shine to dry, damaged hair. It seals in moisture, reduces breakage, and protects the hair from damage.
Biotin (Vitamin H)
Biotin (vitamin H) is a water-soluble vitamin that helps to convert certain nutrients into energy in the body and contributes to healthy hair, skin, and nails. However, biotin itself isn’t always the best option when it comes to hair growth. A true biotin deficiency is not that common, and excessive doses of biotin may interfere with the production of certain hormones, such as those produced by your thyroid. This is why Foundation Skincare’s UnTangled Hair Supplement has been meticulously formulated to provide an optimal dosage that sufficiently delivers essential benefits, but stays well within the US recommended dietary allowance.
Niacin (Vitamin B3)
Niacin, or vitamin B3, is a water-soluble vitamin that assists the body in converting food into energy. Niacin contributes significantly to healthy hair growth by improving blood circulation to the scalp, delivering more oxygen and nutrients directly to hair follicles.
Folic Acid (Vitamin B9)
A water-soluble form of vitamin B9, folic acid is a key ingredient in the production of the nucleic acid that contributes to the formation and health of all genetic material, including the cells of the skin and hair. Vitamin B9 contributes to key functions in the body, promotes tissue growth, and assists healthy cell function.
Vitamin B5, also known as pantothenic acid, is a water-soluble vitamin found in all living cells that supports the synthesis of fat, hormones, and neurotransmitters in the brain. Pantothenic acid contributes to hair health by helping to synthesize proteins and fats, protecting hair structure and repairing its damaged outer layer, protecting against loss of moisture and hair breakage.
3) Essential Minerals
Foundation Skincare’s UnTangled Hair Supplement also contains key essential minerals that contribute to hair growth as follows:
Iron is an essential mineral that helps to transport oxygen throughout the body. It is a key component of hemoglobin, the agent in red blood cells that delivers oxygen from your lungs to the rest of your body. Iron deficiency, or anemia, is known to produce hair loss, and iron is recommended to support the hair’s growth and wellness because it helps to deliver oxygen directly to the hair roots.
Selenium is a mineral that naturally occurs in soil, water, and certain foods. While we only need a tiny amount of this essential mineral, selenium contributes to a healthy metabolism and proper thyroid function. Selenium is also an essential cofactor for many enzymatic reactions within our cells, and contributes to regulating hair loss in patients whose hair loss occurs in patches.
Zinc is a naturally occurring mineral that serves as a cofactor for many enzymatic processes in the body, and contributes to the growth, development and health of tissues. Zinc promotes healthy cell reproduction, tissue growth, and repair of broken tissues. It also nourishes the oil-secreting glands attached to hair follicles, preventing breakage and hair loss.
4) Horsetail Extract
Known botanically as equisetum arvense, horsetail is an ancient plant that contains silicon, a substance that contributes to bone health, as well as minerals that may improve scalp and hair health. It promotes hair growth, controls dandruff and split ends, and acts as a natural hair conditioner.
5) Saw Palmetto
Saw palmetto is a palm tree native to the southeastern United States that produces small berries and inhibits the enzyme responsible for androgenic (male and female pattern) hair loss. Avoid saw palmetto if you are pregnant or actively trying to become pregnant.
