Prairie Naturals Hair-ForceTM
Have Healthy Hair!
12 Key Nutrients for Restoring Healthy Hair
Your hair tells an important story. It tells a story about your overall health and nutritional status. Healthy, shiny hair is one indication of vibrant physical health, while thinning, brittle, dull and lifeless hair tells an entirely different story.
Are You Getting Enough?
While you may think that your nutrient intake is adequate, the fact is that even suboptimal levels of specific nutritional factors make a noticeable difference to the health and appearance of your hair and scalp. Recent studies have revealed that many North Americans are chronically deficient in several of the major nutrients that promote healthy hair.
In addition to general nutritional status, stress, illness and hormone-related metabolic factors impact significantly on hair health. Aging, environmental sensitivities, medications (especially birth control pills) and recreational drug and alcohol use also influence the healthy look and feel of hair.
It may be difficult to determine the exact cause of deteriorating hair health, but one thing is certain: you’ll improve the health of your hair by improving nutritional intake.
Just as our bodies need a wide variety of vitamins and minerals to ensure optimal health, there are specific nutrients required to sustain and support hair health and growth.
Healthy Hair, Healthy You
Prairie Naturals Hair Force TM soft gel capsules synergistically combine 21 natural nutrients recognized for their role in restoring, healing and nourishing hair.
The synergy (combined effect) of these vitamins, minerals and nutrient co-factors directly counteracts the hair-damaging negatives caused by stress, illness, hormonal imbalances and other health and environmental concerns.
Here’s a complete list of the therapeutic nutritional ingredients in Hair ForceTM – what they are and what they do to support your health and the health of your hair.
Vitamin C – restores and heals
This antioxidant protects us against the environmental pollutants that can wreak havoc on our hair.
Vitamin A – promotes denser hair re-growth
Beta carotene is a water soluble, non-toxic form of provitamin A that helps regulate healthy levels of sebum, the hair-protective oil secreted by glands on our scalps.
Vitamin D3 – stimulates hair growth and reduces effects of radiation therapy
A study published in the journal Life Sciences (February 2006) concluded that taking vitamin D3 “dramatically” stimulates hair growth and may protect hair follicles from radiation toxicity and ensuing hair loss.
B vitamins – give a metabolic tune-up
As metabolic helpers, the entire B complex family is beneficial for hair health. They are interdependent, working synergistically to maintain a healthy metabolism and combat the effects of stress. All eight members of the Vitamin B family are included in Hair-Force.
Selenium – fights environmental damage to hair
This powerful antioxidant and anti-aging mineral protects against environmental toxicity and is instrumental in thyroid hormone metabolism, both of which impact on hair health and vitality.
Zinc – low levels lead to hair loss
Zinc insufficiencies are not uncommon in North America. The School of Medicine at the University of Miami found a direct correlation to alopecia (hair loss) and zinc deficiency.
Choline & inositol – stress busting hair protectors
Working in concert, these “lipotropic factors” act as potent anti-stress nutrients and are thought to keep hair follicles healthy at the cellular level.
Iodine – your thyroid gland’s best friend
Iodine is most abundantly found in the thyroid gland where it regulates thyroid hormone production. Hair loss and dry, brittle hair are common indicators of low thyroid function.
PABA – protects hair follicles
L-cysteine – detoxifying amino acid strengthens hair structure
L-Cysteine is a detoxifying amino acid that provides potent antioxidant protection to the hair follicle. Supplemental cysteine may speed hair growth and increase hair shaft diameter resulting in fuller hair.
L-methionine – combats bad hair days
L-methionine deficiency may be the cause of hair that is “brittle, short and sparse” according to Department of Dermatology researchers in Düsseldorf, Germany.
Organic flax seed oil and safflower seed oil – moisturizing from the inside out
Flax and safflower seed oils have an internal moisturizing effect that adds shine and luster to hair. Flaxseed oil is a very rich source of alpha-linolenic acid, which acts as an anti-inflammatory and is especially beneficial for sensitive scalps.
Unbleached lecithin – a nutrient carrier
Unbleached lecithin oil is a source of healthy fat and acts as a natural carrier for the fat-soluble nutrients in this formulation.
What’s not in this hypo-allergenic formulation is important, too. Prairie Naturals Hair ForceTM does not contain artificial preservatives, colours, flavours, hydrogenated fats or oils, trans fats, starch, sweeteners, dairy, wheat, yeast or corn.
