Biocell: hair and the skin

Hair is the fine thread-like strands growing from the skin of humans. Hair is made of a tough protein called keratin. A hair follicle anchors each hair into the skin. The hair bulb forms the base of the hair follicle. In the hair bulb, living cells divide and grow to build the hair shaſt. Blood vessels nourish the cells in the hair bulb, delivering hormones that modify hair growth and structure at different times of life

Hair is very much influenced by human health i.e. metabolic processes, work of endocrine and central nervous systems. Fatigue, stress, nervousness or hormone changes may impact hair growth or even colour changes. Strict diets, poor nutritional habits may result in thin hair, discolouration or hair loss and slow growth. Therefore, intake of essential nutrients like biotin, copper, selenium and zinc is important for healthy hair

It is reported that Biotin, Selenium and Zinc help to maintain normal hair condition and Copper contributes to normal hair pigmentation, alongside Vitamin C which helps to protect cells against Oxidative Stress
