Biotin is a magical water-soluble B-vitamin, also called vitamin B7.
Biotin is the key ingredient of SweetBearHairTM. It is a miracle vitamin that even EFSA (European Food Safety Authority) acknowledges as one of the most important vitamins for healthy hair (Commission Regulation (EU) 432/2012 of 16/05/2012). Biotin is also one of the most studied vitamins in a relationship with hair growth. A claim on biotin and the maintenance of normal hair has already been assessed with a favorable outcome many times by numerous clinical studies (EFSA Panel on Dietetic Products Nutrition and Allergies (NDA), 2009).
Is biotin related to healthier hair growth? Keratin is the form of protein from which our hair is made of. Amino acids are a key component of proteins. Moreover, amino acids are produced from biotin and cell enzymes. Biotin is the essential ingredient for your hair and nail growth and has very positive effects on the health of your hair and nails.
However, consuming biotin alone is not enough, although it has a lot of great benefits for your hair, that’s why SweetBear made a powerful combination of vitamins & minerals just for you!
ZINC and SELENIUM
If Biotin is a miracle vitamin for healthy hear, Selenium and Zinc are miracle minerals that help promote faster hair growth and health.
Zinc is a micromineral and is building part of enzymes, hormones, and cells. Cell reproduction, hormonal balance, proper absorption of vitamins, and protein synthesis are all the bodily function that require this trace mineral.
Selenium is another very important micromineral. Our body needs it for regulating antioxidants, thyroid hormones, and also has a connection with human hair and bones (Masumoto et al., 2007).
Selenium deficiency is most frequent in people with eating disorders, people who are on a long-term nutritional support (Masumoto et. al, 2007, p. 783) and individuals who live in regions with selenium depleted soil (White et al., 2005).
Both Zinc and Selenium have proven effect on building of hair and nails (Commission Regulation (EU) 432/2012 of 16/05/2012). Deficiency in selenium has been shown to result in various disorders including serious impairment of hair (EFSA; 2010;8(10):1727). “Clinical features of selenium deficiency in infants receiving long term nutritional support” case study by Masumoto et al., concluded that selenium-deficient children affected by spot baldness saw improvement after taking selenium supplements by doctors (2007, p.785), and so making connection between selenium supplements and hair-growth.
Additionally, selenium helps with dandruff by killing fungi named Malassezia. For that reason, there almost isn’t any anti-dandruff shampoo without selenium.
FOLIC ACID (FOLATE)
Our body needs folate to synthesize and repair DNA and therefore produce new, healthy cells. Red blood cells couldn’t work properly without folate, which would make it impossible for nutrients to reach your organs and systems through the bloodstream.
Folic acid generally helps all tissues grow (it is involved in DNA synthesis/repair), so getting enough dietary folate stimulates hair growth in the long run. According to a study conducted by the Ontario Veterinary College at the University of Guelph, Canada, folic acid supplement therapy helped a three-week old male calf recover from progressive hair loss in less than two months. Although no such outstanding effects have been reported in humans (different genetic make-up and causes of hair loss), this study supports the significant contribution of folic acid to hair health and cell regeneration in vertebrates.
It is generally advised to take Vitamin B12 supplements alongside folic acid as deficiency of one of them may cause excessive hair breakage or hair loss
EFSA concluded that Vitamin B12 contributes to normal energy-yielding metabolism (Commission Regulation (EU) 432/2012 of 16/05/2012). As vitamin B12 helps to control the formation of cells in the body and also increases the lifespan of the cell it’s also the key to making your hair, skin, and nails the picture of health.
Vegetarians often need a B12 supplement because the best sources of the vitamin are meat sources. Chicken, eggs, milk, and fish and great foods rich with vitamin B12. Bananas and sunflower seeds are also full of B12.
INOSITOL AND CHOLINE
Clinical studies done with b vitamins (including inositol) showed that when this vitamin deficiency occurs, hair loss is dramatic. When they introduced b vitamins back into the diet hair growth was restored. This showed an apparent link between B vitamins and the hair growth process.
Inositol functions great alone, but it has even more significant effects when combined with choline. Choline is macronutrient that can be found in living tissues and can be used in many ways. These two joined produce phospholipids, that’s what hair follicle membranes are made of, and also protect hair follicles them self.
An inositol defiency can happen two different ways, both of which have a remedy. If you are not eating an appropriate diet to get a natural intake of inositol, foods that should be included are citrus fruits, beans (kidney + lima beans), nuts, broccoli, grapefruit and blackberries. If you feel that you are getting enough inositol in your diet but there is still a deficiency, caffeine intake (too much coffee + energy drinks) and overuse of alcohol will deplete inositol from the body very quickly. Cutting back on coffee isn’t always easy but limiting to one or two cups a day will definitely help.
EFSA concluded that Iodine contributes to the normal production of thyroid hormones and normal thyroid function (2009;7(9):1214, 2010;8(10):1800). Because thyroid glands need iodine to produce hormones needed to grow hair, teeth, and bones, iodine is critical for growing new hair. So if we lack iodine we won’t have healthy hair, and can suffer from weaker hair or complete hair loss.
Another beauty micromineral that has strong relation with healthy and strong muscles, tendons, hair, nails, cartilage and bones, and finally healthy skin is silica. Silica is lately getting a lot of recognition from researchers as well as women who are searching for ways to better hair health and texture. And all that because silica helps in hair growth as it feeds hair follicles.
Silica is an essential mineral when you are shedding the hair excessively causing hair loss and it also assists both women and men for lack of lustre as well as thinning hair. It is vital to know how silica works so as to achieve a healthy looking vitalized hair.
VITAMIN B6 and VITAMIN B5 (PANTOTHENIC ACID)
In 2011 British Journal of Dermatology published case study examining the relation of a leave-on mix including panthenol, the alcohol analog of pantothenic acid (vitamin B5), and effects on width and response of individual terminal scalp fibers. Therapy greatly affected the width of scalp fibers. Additionally, it enlarged hair fibers and improved pliability, that’s ability to resist force without tearing (A novel cosmetic approach to treat thinning hair; Davis MG).
Vitamin B6 plays a role in the creation of antibodies in the immune system. Needed for the proper functioning of over 60 different enzymes. It is also required for the chemical reactions of proteins. The higher the protein intake, the more need there is for vitamin B6. The best way is to take vitamin B6 together with zinc as their synergy will help block a substance called DHT, which is related to hair loss.
All cells need vitamin A for growth. This includes hair, the fastest growing tissue in the human body. Sufficient cell growth is not possible without Vitamin A. Just some vitamin A rich foods are carrots, melons, and dark leafy greens. Some symptoms of vitamin A deficiency include skin, hair and vision problems.
Vitamin A also helps skin glands make an oily substance called sebum. AS studies show, sebum moisturizes the scalp and helps keep hair healthy (Endogenous retinoids in the hair follicle and sebaceous gland; Biochim Biophys Acta. 2012 Jan;1821(1):222-9).
Vitamin D deficiency was suspect for hair loss in both women and men for many years. An increasing number of studies were done on this topic, but one of them stands out as it focuses on young women and confirms a relation between thin hair and low levels of vitamin D.
A case study from 2013 researched mostly overlooked reasons and the demographics of hair loss. It’s believed that hair loss is more common as we age, but these researchers looked into how a vitamin D deficiency relates to hair loss, even in younger women (Rasheed H.; Serum ferritin and vitamin d in female hair loss: do they play a role?; Skin Pharmacol Physiol. 2013;26(2):101-7).
Vitamin E is a vital nutrient known mainly for its benefits to heart health. But vitamin E has many other properties that maintain health and has long been used both internally and externally.
Vitamin E increases circulation throughout the body, including the head, which keeps the scalp healthy. This allows hair to grow faster and thicker by stimulating the follicles. A deficiency can lead to slower growth and less healthy hair when growth does occur.
Many hair care serums and treatments contain vitamin E along with various other vitamins that have been shown to improve the health of the hair and scalp. It is especially beneficial if taken together with Vitamin C for improving strength and elasticity of hair.
Vitamin C is praised for excellent benefits from anti-aging qualities for a youthful looking skin to growing longer, healthy hair and nails. It’s not only hair that benefits from vitamin C; it helps overall health with collagen production which is essential for strength and elasticity of skin, bones, blood vessels, muscles, and teeth. It also reduces hair loss and enhances the growth of healthy hair.
