Best supplements for hair: Taking either of these two pills could increase hair growth

By

Progressive hair loss has a cosmetic and social impact. Hair undergoes three stages of hair cycle: the anagen, catagen, and telogen phases. Through cyclical loss and new-hair growth, the number of hairs remains relatively constant. A variety of factors, such as hormones, nutritional status, and exposure to radiations, environmental toxicants, and medications, may affect hair growth. According to numerous studies, using either silicon or biotin supplements have shown impressive results in helping to combat hair loss and thus increase hair growth.

“Hair strands with higher silicon content tend to have lower falling rate and higher brightness.

“A randomized study with 48 volunteers investigated the effect of ch-OSA on hair.

“The volunteers had thin hairs and were divided into two groups: ch-OSA and placebo and the first group received daily doses of 10 mg of silicon, for a period of nine months.

“In general, positive results were obtained in the evaluated hair properties, such as strand resistance to breaking, for example.

“Furthermore, the area of the strand front section increased significantly after nine months of supplementation containing ch-OSA, whereas the placebo group exhibited no significant difference.”

Biotin

Biotin is very safe to consume, as any excess amounts – from food or supplements – will be excreted from the body.

The Ablon Skin Institute Research Center, in California, looked into the effects of biotin on hair growth.

Sixty participants took part in the experiment who reported “self-perceived thinning hair”.

The participants were randomly assigned to receive an oral marine protein supplement, containing biotin, or a placebo pill twice a day.
