What Kind of Hair Supplement Doesn't Have Proteins? This Kind!
When it comes to hair health, protein pretty much dominates the conversation. Which makes sense, considering hair is primarily made up of protein. In fact, we’re often asked how is it that the Cosmix Healthy Hair mix doesn’t focus on proteins at all? Well, that’s because when you dig deeper, you realise that there’s a lot more to healthy hair that just proteins, which only occupies a piece of the pie.
Now here’s the thing, we get or can get enough proteins for our daily intake from our diet alone, without much struggle. But, it’s a whole other story when it comes to other micronutrients that are equally essential for hair health. To get adequate amounts of hair-loving micronutrients in your daily diet, you need to eat certain foods in larger quantities. And of course that might be a bit tricky and unfeasible. That’s where Healthy Hair comes in. We’ve done the work of extracting the micronutrients from the right plant-based sources, and put them in powder form, so your hair can get their food without much trouble.
Okay, but what are these nutrients?
Shortage of zinc in the body can lead to hair-loss. How come? Zinc plays an important role in hair tissue growth and repair. It also ensures the oil glands around your hair follicles are functioning optimally. So you see? Less zinc in the body could affect hair growth as well as its strength.
Omega fatty acids
Omega fatty acids stimulate your hair follicles and sebaceous glands. It may not directly contribute to hair growth, but it conditions your hair from within, and also acts as a natural moisturiser.
Iron plays a very important role in our body i.e. carrying oxygen to our cells. This is what makes it an essential nutrient for a wide variety of bodily functions, including hair care. It boosts circulation and carries oxygen to your roots, promoting hair growth and a healthy scalp.
Silica, though required only in trace amounts, helps strengthen blood vessels, thereby improving blood circulation. It is also supportive of the synthesis of glycosaminoglycans – the main agents responsible for retaining moisture.
Vitamin C produces collagen needed for strengthening and maintaining the hair structure. It also plays an important role in enabling the body’s ability to absorb iron. Vitamin C by its ability to fight free radicals, can also address the issue of premature greying.
Vitamin B6 helps create red blood cells, responsible for carrying oxygen and nutrients to the scalp and hair follicles. This in turn promotes healthy growth of hair and optimal scalp health.
The power of synergy
Reading through the whole list above, you’ll notice how certain nutrients play an important role in the synthesis, delivery and absorption of other nutrients. Thus, having a diet that covers the entire spectrum of these nutrients ensures your hair get the maximum benefits out of these synergistic relationships! This is where Healthy Hair comes in handy. It’s mindfully formulated with herbs and seeds that act in synergy, and give your hair holistic, well-rounded nourishment.
