Serenoa repens, commonly known as saw palmetto, is a small palm tree native to the southeastern United States which has been used medicinally by Native Americans for centuries. An extract derived from saw palmetto berries has been shown in scientific studies to lessen hair loss.
Genistein extract was first isolated from the dyer’s broom (Genista tinctoria), a shrub native to meadows and pastures in Europe and Turkey. Genistein is also found in a number of other plants, including soybeans, coffee and tea. Genistein derived from green tea in particular is associated with promoting hair growth.
Bamboo powder is derived from the family of tropical and subtropical grasses of the same name. It contains a high concentration of silica, a trace mineral which improves blood circulation to hair follicles and strengthens hair
Taurine is an amino sulfonic acid which occurs naturally in the human body. It is derived from cysteine, another amino acid found in whole grains, beans, nuts and seeds. Taurine is a building block for the protein keratin, the structural component of hair. It is also shown to lower levels of cortisol (the body’s stress hormone) and to reduce the formation of scar tissue, both factors in preventing hair loss.
Tocopherols are part of a class of organic compounds collectively known as Vitamin E. They are derived from various plant sources, including olives, sunflower seeds, and avocados. Long used as a component of conditioners to add shine and body to hair, tocopherols have the added benefits of improving circulation and balancing the body’s production of oils, both of which can help prevent hair loss.
Pyridoxine is a form of Vitamin B6 derived from a number of plant sources, including wheat grass, bananas, chickpeas, dark chocolate and pistachios. In addition to playing a role in regulating hormones which influence hair loss, pyridoxine helps to relieve scalp irritation and dandruff as well to promote production of serotonin and melatonin, lowering stress levels.
Zinc picolinate is a mineral salt commonly used as a dietary supplement to strengthen the immune system. Plant-based sources of zinc include whole grains, nuts and legumes. Studies have shown that people experiencing hair loss frequently also have low levels of zinc. It is believed that zinc may act as a blocker for the body’s production of DHT, a hormone known to contribute to hair loss.
Cysteine is an amino acid found in whole grains, beans, nuts and seeds. Like the protein keratin, it is commonly used as a hair-straightening treatment. Cysteine helps maintain the texture and thickness of hair as well as promoting hair growth.
Also known as Vitamin B1, thiamine is found in edible seeds, legumes and rice. Often called the “anti-stress vitamin,” thiamine also helps repair damaged nerve endings, promoting hair follicle health.
Pantothenic acid, or Vitamin B5, has a long history of use in hair care products, used to strengthen hair roots and shafts, to prevent split ends and breakage, and to add lustre and thickness. Pantothenic acid is derived from many edible plants, including mushrooms, rice, wheat germ, and sunflower seeds.
