How Do These Ingredients Help Reduce Hair Loss?
Nanosomes of IvyAccording to Spectral DNC “nanosomes” work as a carrier for other ingredients. I’m not certain that the “ivy” part is of importance. From DS Labs:
Nanosomes are about 10 times smaller then cells and penetrate deep into the epidermis and continuously release the active herbal extracts over a 12 hour period.
CapsicumCapsicum is the chemical found in peppers, which is hot. It stimulates blood circulation, which may help increase blood flow to the hair follicles — which is one of the key ways of promoting hair growth.
Procyanidin B-2 and C-1Procyanidins or polyphenols are chemicals found in apples and grapes. Research has shown that apple polyphenols may stimulate blood flow in the scalp more effectively than minoxidil — however there are not a sufficient number of reliable studies that verify this. Polyphenols are also powerful antioxidants, which may help scavenge free radicals in the scalp.
Adenosine stimulates growth of dermal papilla and lengthens the anagen phase by increasing the cysteine level via fibroblast growth factors 2 and 7 in an organ culture of mouse vibrissae hair folliclesLearn more about this study here. Adenosine in an interesting molecule that seems to extend the hair growth phase, which is important in preventing hair loss and promoting hair growth because it reduces shedding and therefore maintains and increases hair thickness.
