Hair Matrix: Hair and Scalp Nutrient
What it is:
A 30-day supply of dietary supplements formulated with vitamins, minerals and herbal extracts to specifically target micronutrient deficiencies related to hair loss and graying.*
What it’s formulated to do:
Each compound in Secret for Longevity: Hair Matrix was selected based on its effectiveness in supporting hair and scalp health from the inside out to promote faster growing, stronger, and more vibrant hair. Our formula contains over 15 of the most vital nutrients believed to promote hair health including the following:*
Biotin plays a critical role in supporting hair health because deficiency in this vitamin often manifests as hair loss. Oral supplementation with this nutrient can reduce biotin-deficiency symptoms including alopecia.
Copper is found in almost every cell of the human body. This trace element facilitates the production of melanin which is responsible for the pigment in our skin, hair, and eyes.
Tea Extract research suggests that EGCG (the most abundant catechin in tea) stimulates human hair growth due to its proliferative and anti-apoptotic effects on cells in the hair matrix by prolonging the anagen (growth) stage of the hair follicle life cycle.
Iron is recommended for overall hair health because it is necessary for blood to carry oxygen to hair follicles which promotes growth.
Zinc is necessary because a deficiency in this trace element can lead to hair loss. It is thought that a lack of zinc weakens the protein structure of hair follicles which result in new hairs falling out quicker than they should. Zinc is also important for the efficient division of RNA and DNA in follicle cells for maintaining the optimal anagen stage of the hair growth cycle.
Horsetail extract contains potent antioxidants and has anti-inflammatory properties which together promote the health of hair follicles and stimulates hair growth by improving circulation. Another active agent in horsetail extract is silica. Silica is an essential nutrient for hair because it helps maintain elasticity and repairs damage.
Vitamin B-6 has been found to block hormones which can interfere with hair growth, improve hair growth and reduce hair loss in women, improve hair color by facilitating the production of melanin in the hair follicle, and in some cases accelerate hair growth when no nutrient deficiencies exist.
Folic Acid helps maintain healthy red blood cells for optimum delivery of nutrients and oxygen to the scalp. Folic acid also supports cell renewal which can prolong the anagen (growth) stage of the hair follicle life cycle. A deficiency of folic acid in the diet may result in premature graying and hair loss.
Catalase is naturally produced in our body, but levels of this enzyme decline with age. Catalase breaks down hydrogen peroxide - a byproduct of oxygen metabolism (energy production). Hydrogen peroxide is an oxidizing agent which inhibits the production of melanin leading to gray hair over time. Without enough catalase in our system, peroxide takes over and hair can turn gray.
Saw Palmetto is thought to block a particular enzyme responsible for converting testosterone to DHT -- the molecule responsible for hair loss. The mechanism by which saw palmetto blocks this enzyme works in similar ways to the synthetic ingredients found in hair loss prescription medications.
L-Tyrosine is an amino acid required for production of melanin -- the pigment responsible for color in our hair and skin. Consuming an adequate amount of protein and supplementation with tyrosine may be the answer to keeping your natural hair color longer.
