Marine Collagen: There has been mounting evidence for the beneficial effects of collagen supplements, consisting of proteins and glycosaminoglycans, of marine origin have beneficial effects on hair and skin in both men and women. Marine collagen comes from the scales and bony parts of sharks, fish and molluscs.
Marine collagen is high in essential amino acids, including glycine and proline, that are the building blocks of our own collagen. Combined with the ingredients below, this provides the building blocks for hair growth.
Vitamin A: A fat-soluble vitamin that is good for healthy vision, skin, bones and other tissues in the body. Vitamin A often works as an antioxidant, fighting cell damage, but it also has many other uses. There are two types of vitamin A, Performed vitamin A and Pro-vitamin A.
• Performed vitamin A: Also called retinol, is found in animal products. Good sources are fortified milk, eggs, meat, cheese, liver, halibut fish oil, cream, and kidneys.
• Pro-vitamin A: Is found in plant-based foods such as fruits and vegetables. The most common type of pro-vitamin A is beta-carotene, a carotenoid that produces dark pigments in plant foods.
Vitamin A is essential for eye health. However, it’s also widely used as a means to promote healthy hair. Vitamin A helps to produce healthy sebum, an oily substance secreted by the scalp, which keeps hair from drying out and breaking off. Also, Vitamin A fights free radicals that weigh your hair down. While Vitamin A is essential for healthy hair, you must exercise caution, as too much Vitamin A can lead to toxicity and can actually result in the opposite effect – hair loss. The maximum daily amount you should consume, either through supplementation, through your diet, or both combined is 25,000 IU.
Vitamin D3: Although classified as a vitamin, D3 transforms into a hormone within the body. In this form, it is circulated in the bloodstream to help in the absorption of calcium and phosphorous that is received from digested food sources. Vitamin D keeps the bones and skin healthy and, it’s also been linked to hair growth. This vitamin can help create new follicles – little pores where new hair can grow. This may improve the thickness of your hair or reduce the amount of hair loss you have.
Vitamin C: Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) is one of the safest and most effective nutrients. It is a water-soluble nutrient found mostly in fruit. In the body, it acts as an antioxidant, helping to protect cells from the damage caused by free radicals. It may not be the cure for the common cold, but the benefits of vitamin C may include protection against immune system deficiencies, cardiovascular disease, prenatal health problems, eye disease, hair protection and even skin wrinkling. Vitamin C is one of the most effective nutrients to help grow and strengthen hair. Vitamin C helps build collagen, which is highly important for hair growth, but maintaining the strength of hair is just as crucial. Vitamin C plays a necessary role in absorbing iron, which keeps our hair strong and healthy.
Vitamin E: Is an important vitamin required for the proper function of many organs in the body. It is also an antioxidant. This means it helps to slow down processes that damage cells. Vitamin E can help improve overall scalp and hair health. Hair can look dull when it’s damaged. When the protective fat layer on the outside of the hair’s cuticle is removed, it loses its shine and becomes difficult to manage. Vitamin E can help replace that protective layer and bring back shine. Vitamin E in general also helps seal out moisture, reduce breakage, and protect the hair from damage.
Biotin: Your body needs biotin to help convert certain nutrients into energy. It also plays an important role in the health of your hair, skin, and nails. If you aren’t getting enough biotin, you may experience hair loss or a scaly red rash.
There is no experimental evidence to support the large amounts (5000mcg or more) that are found in most hair supplements. While not clearly helpful, these super doses of biotin may, in fact, interfere with common lab tests for thyroid and other hormones (J Am Acad Dermatol. 2018 Jun;78(6):1236-1238). It is for these reasons that we have chosen to keep our biotin dosage closer to the U.S. recommended dietary allowance. Plenty to replace if you are deficient, but not so much as to cause other problems.
Niacin: Is a water-soluble vitamin that helps the body convert food into energy and improves blood circulation bringing more oxygen and nutrients to the hair follicles. That’s why experts tout the benefits of niacin for hair growth.
Folic Acid: Is a key ingredient in the production of the nucleic acids that forms our genetic material. Vitamin B9 includes both folate and folic acid and is important for several functions in the body. Regular consumption of folate or folic acid facilitates unhindered tissue growth and also allows cells to function smoothly.
Iron: Essential in transporting oxygen throughout the body. Iron is an important component of hemoglobin, the substance in red blood cells that carries oxygen from your lungs to transport it throughout your body. Iron is recommended as extremely important by many experts. It is well accepted that anemia or deficiency of iron results in hair loss. There are many nutrients which put the follicles back into work, but iron is recommended for the overall growth and wellness of hair since it carries oxygen to the roots.
Selenium: Naturally appears in water and some foods. While people only need a very small amount, selenium plays a key role in the metabolism. Selenium is more concentrated in the thyroid than in our other organs and is important for the proper functioning of our thyroid hormone. And this hormone, in turn, plays a huge role in regulating hair loss in patients suffering from many types of hair loss. Selenium is also an essential cofactor for a diverse set of enzymatic reactions within our cells.
Zinc: Is important for growth and for the development and health of body tissues. Zinc serves as a cofactor for many enzymatic reactions.
Zinc benefits for hair include promotion of cell reproduction, tissue growth, and repair of broken tissues. It also maintains the oil-secreting glands that are attached to your hair follicles, thus decreasing their chances of falling off.
Horsetail Extract: Herbal remedies have been around for ages, and horsetail is no exception. Known by the botanical name Equisetum, horsetail is a prehistoric plant with distinctive hollow stems. It contains silicon, a substance that plays a role in keeping bones strong. Because of certain minerals it contains, this herb may improve the health of your hair. It promotes hair growth, cures dandruff and split ends, and works as a natural conditioner.
Pantothenic Acid: Vitamin B5, also known as Pantothenic Acid, is a water-soluble vitamin that is found in all living cells within the body. It also plays a role in the synthesis of fat, hormones, and neurotransmitters in the brain. Pantothenic acid contributes to hair health firstly by helping synthesize proteins and fats, two macronutrients that ensure hair structure and help repair its damaged outer layer. This prevents the hair from losing moisture, drying out and breaking easily.
Saw Palmetto: A type of palm tree that grows in the Southeastern United States. Saw palmetto is a weak inhibitor of the enzyme responsible for androgenic (male and female pattern) hair loss. It should not be taken by women who are pregnant or actively trying to become pregnant.
• Smokers, and possibly former smokers, should avoid multivitamins (MVM) products that provide more than 100% of the Daily Value for vitamin A (either as preformed retinol or beta-carotene or some combination of the two) because two studies have linked high supplemental doses of these nutrients with an increased risk of lung cancer in smokers.
• Taking excess amounts of vitamin A (preformed retinol form, not as beta-carotene) during pregnancy has been shown to increase the risk of birth defects in infants.
• Except in cases of iron deficiency or inadequacy, or unless a physician recommends otherwise, adult males and postmenopausal women should avoid using iron supplements or MVMs containing more than their Recommended Daily Allowance for iron (8 mg/day). Iron supplements may be recommended for women of childbearing age, pregnant women, preterm infants, older infants, and teenage girls because they are at greater risk of developing a deficiency. Yet, iron supplements are a leading cause of poisoning in young children, so parents and guardians should keep iron-containing supplements out of the reach of children.
• MVMs providing nutrients at or up to 100% of the US recommended daily allowance do not typically interact with medications, but it is always recommended to discuss a supplement with your doctor or pharmacists before taking.
