Ingredients Explained

  • Contains saw palmetto, which has been shown in several small studies to block the enzyme 5 alpha reductase, which effectively reduces DHT levels
  • Curcumin is highly beneficial for reducing inflammation, which is key to preventing progression of male pattern baldness
  • Contains vitamin E, which is beneficial for hair and skin health
  • Contains hyaluronic acid, which may improve skin health
  • Contains cysteine, lysine and methionine — these are three of the 5 key amino acids identified as being effective at increasing hair growth
  • Contain silica, which has been shown to improve health of skin and connective tissue and has been identified as a key nutrient for hair growth
  • Contain resveratrol, a powerful natural antioxidant which has been shown to slow down aging due to antioxidant action on cells
  • Contains Bioperine, a patented form of black pepper, which has been shown in studies to improve nutrient absorption
  • Contains capsaicin (the ingredient which gives chilli peppers their heat), which has been shown to reduce male pattern baldness by increasing dermal IGF-1 — the growth factor required that seems to play an important role in hair growth
  • Contains biotin, which is used by the body to transform amino acids into proteins like keratin, among other functions. It’s therefore vital for healthy hair and skin
  • Contains vitamin D3 is required to regulate calcium levels and plays other important roles in hair growth. Studies show vitamin D deficiency may lead to hair loss
  • Contains fish collagen. This is interesting because it’s similar to shark cartilage used in Nourkrin hair supplements. It’s what Nourkrin say makes their supplements work. However I’ve seen no research to suggest this does work. Still it’s worth a mention because there must be some reason fish/shark meat is used in hair supplements. It may be beneficial due to the amino acid content?
