HAIR HEALTH, STRENGTH, GROWTH AND IMPROVEMENTS

Many reports show that marine products and their metabolites have proficient bio active efficacies, including anti-photo aging, anticoagulant, antioxidant, anti – inflammatory, matrix metalloproteinase (MMP) inhibitory, and anti-allergic activities. For these reasons, marine collagen is believed to promote hair growth.

MARINE COLLAGEN BENEFITS ON HAIR

They contain abundant metabolites and nutrients, including minerals, vitamins, and amino acids. Marine collagen is rich in selenium, calcium, iron, potassium, magnesium, and zinc, and these trace minerals are needed by the thyroid gland for producing hair.

HAIR GROWTH AND ELONGATION

Extracts of marine collagen have been demonstrated to suggest a potential hair growth –promoting effect via the increased proliferation of immortalized vibrissa DPC and hair elongation of follicles.
