Catalase and greying hair
Whilst there can be many factors that can affect greying hair including genetics, age, stress and an unbalanced diet, it has been noticed that one of the key causes can be linked to catalase. Found in nearly all living organisms, catalase is a common enzyme that works to catalyse the decomposition of hydrogen peroxide into water and oxygen. Hydrogen peroxide is produced naturally in the body and acts as a powerful bleaching and oxidising agent. As we age the natural levels of catalase decrease, meaning high levels of hydrogen peroxide can begin to accumulate. This leads to oxidative stress and a destruction of melanin, the pigment responsible for hair colour, and as a result, the hair begins to grey. This is why if you are looking to fight greying hair, it is important to increase catalase levels in the body.
Alongside the all important Catalase, the amazing ingredient for supporting greying hair, this premium supplement contains a whole range of other great active ingredients that have each been carefully chosen for their many benefits for the health and maintenance of the hair. Each of these ingredients have been carefully sourced and then optimally measured to make each and every capsule the best it can be.
Probably more commonly known as Vitamin B7, Biotin is a member of the soluble vitamin B family. It is found in small amounts in foods such as cauliflower, eggs and mushrooms and has many great benefits for the body and hair. Biotin is known to contribute to the maintenance of normal hair as well as normal energy-yielding metabolism.
Found in minimal amounts in foods including dark chocolate, garlic and pumpkin seeds, Zinc is another ingredient that is amazing for the body and in particular the hair. This is because it is also known to contribute to the maintenance of normal hair and also to normal macronutrient metabolism.
Also known as plant sterol esters, Beta-Sitosterols are one of a number of phytosterols and are a plant substance found in fruits, vegetables, seeds and nuts. They work to help the body in many different ways, but for the hair there has been research that has linked them to having a strengthening action.
Known also by the name Equisetum, Horsetail is known to contain a number of minerals and organic compounds. It is naturally rich in Silica, the natural form of Silicon, which is considered very beneficial for the hair as a study has linked it to supporting hair strand resistance to breaking, strength and increased brightness.
Most commonly called stinging nettle and by the scientific community, Urtica Dioica, Nettle is native to Europe and North America and is a green-leaved plant with small purple flowers. Traditionally used to make herbal teas, this plant has many other uses as it is said to be rich in revitalising bioactive compounds that are considered very beneficial for the hair.
