Why do you need a supplement?
Today’s lifestyle is very busy with lots of added stresses. Our diets are not always as great as they could be, and our stores of essential vitamins and minerals tend to become lowered or depleted.
All of these factors can cause the hair to shed, thin or become weakened or brittle. This easy to take 1 a day tablet will provide support to your daily nutrition to provide everything essential to the hair and scalp.
If you have seen your GP and they have carried out blood tests their reference point is termed as normal range for your general health. Our hair has very specific requirements that are not always covered by the “normal range”. A good example is serum ferritin, the normal range is between 10 ug/L and 200 ug/L. For our hair, we require it to be a minimum of 70 ug/L, and ideally between 100 ug/L and 120 ug/L. So you can see why the lower end of normal range is in no way supporting the hair, although for your general health would be considered normal.
The hair follicle is the second fastest dividing cell in our bodies. The only cells that divide more quickly are found in the gut. We need our gut to stay alive, sadly our hair isn’t essential to our survival. Hence the body very cleverly puts its very high need at the lowest priority as we can live without it. I think this demonstrates why we need to support our hair health from within!
