Essence of Nature LLC’s Hair Growth Elixir is the key to strong, vibrant hair. As with other parts of the body, hair needs nutrients and vitamins to remain strong, resilient and healthy. Essence of Nature LLC’s Hair Growth Elixir was formulated with over 14 herbs and more than 5 essential oils specifically chosen to provide the best possible combination of nourishing ingredients to infuse your hair with the sustenance it needs to thrive.
To explain further, let us review the composition, life cycle, and pathologies that can impact on your hair. A wise saying passed down through the ages is that “… A woman’s hair is her crown and glory.” Surely, the same thing can be said of men where a full head of robust hair is seen to symbolize youth, strength, and vitality (Remember the story of Samson?). Once age, disease, or other maladaptive occurrences take place, the idea of strength and beauty associated with healthy-looking hair disappears and we begin to observe a decline in the appearance and vitality of the individual. Here are some facts to ponder.
The Composition and Three Stages of hair growth. Hair is composed entirely of human protein. Each strand is structured in two parts: follicle and shaft. The follicle (sometimes called the “root”) grows from underneath the scalp. The shaft grows above the scalp and is the portion we observe. The hair is “fed” by blood vessels at the base of the follicle. This gives it the nourishment it needs to grow. Hair growth takes place in four stages, or cycles. The “anagen” or growing stage lasts for about two to seven years at a rate of nearly six inches per year, depending on a number of factors. The second stage is called the “catagen,” or transition stage. This is a two to the seven-week period after hair growth stops and the hair is being prepared for the following two stages, the “telogen” and “exogen” stages. During these final stages, the hair shafts are detached and shedding takes place. In humans, hair strands pass through the growth cycles randomly. An any given moment healthy strands are at different stages in the growth cycles and the process of growth, transition and shedding are hardly noticeable. Over time, the length of the anagen stage decreases. The hair may become weaker and thinner after each cycle. That is why it is important to ensure your diet is rich in specific nutrients to maintain healthy hair growth.
Five Known Vitamins For Hair Growth.
Vitamin A is needed by all cells in the body, hair especially, as it is the fastest-growing tissue in the body.
Vitamin B5 has been shown to prevent premature hair loss. Studies link biotin deficiency with hair loss.
Vitamin C limits damage caused by free radicals that block the growth and cause hair age prematurely.
Vitamin D. Low levels of vitamin D are linked to alopecia, a condition we discussed earlier.
Vitamin E is an antioxidant that can prevent oxidative stress.
Three Important Nutrients.
Protein. Hair is made almost entirely of protein. Consuming enough through proper diet is important for hair growth.
Iron helps red blood cells carry oxygen to your cells. This makes it an important mineral for many bodily functions, including hair growth.
Zinc plays an important role in hair tissue growth and repair. It also helps keep the oil glands around the follicles working properly.
Some Causes of Hair Loss.
Abnormal hair loss occurs when the anagen phase of hair growth is either shortened or stopped altogether by malnourishment, undue stress, disease, or mishandling through over-processing with harsh chemicals, heat, dyes, or cosmetics. One genetic condition, “Alopecia areata,” is an autoimmune disease where the body’s immune system attacks its own hair follicles. This serious condition is treatable with proper medical care and close attention to diet and stress release. Smoking can affect healthy hair growth. Cigarette smoking has been shown to cause poor circulation, which can affect the amount of blood flow available to the hair follicles underneath the scalp. As we age our hair becomes thinner. This is a natural occurrence and should be viewed with grace and a degree of acceptance for what it is.
