To meet the growing demand of a superior herbal hair vitamins formula... Hair Formula 37 has developed a Hair Formula 37 Herbal Booster.
Hair Formula 37™ Herbal Booster is not designed to replace either Hair Formula 37 Step One or Step Two...but rather to be a booster to both steps. It is an addition that will naturally enhance hair growth for all hair types of hair.
|In a base of : Nettle, Rosemary, Burdock, Birch, Rose Hips, Irish Moss, Coltsfoot, Dandelion, Yellow Dock, Elder Flowers, Shave Grass|
|Horsetail (Mu Zei)||50mg|
Added to Step One and Two of the regular Hair Formula 37 vitamin program the Herbal Booster adds:
Horsetail - Strengthens hair, nails, bone, and teeth. Increases calcium
absorption. It strengthens the heart and lungs. It
is specific for internal bleeding and urine retention. Helps to
coagulate the blood and is useful excessive bleeding during menstruation.
Horsetail is very rich in silicic acid and silicates, which provide
approximately 2-3% elemental silicon. Potassium, aluminum, and
manganese along with fifteen different types of bioflavonoids
are also found in the herb. The presence of these bioflavonoids
are believed to cause the diuretic action, while the silicon content
is said to exert a connective tissue strengthening and anti-arthritic
action.3 Some experts have suggested that the element
silicon is a vital component for bone and cartilage formation.4 This would indicate that horsetail may be beneficial in preventing
osteoporosis. Anecdotal reports suggest that horsetail may be
of some use in the treatment of brittle nails.
Fo-ti - A Chinese herb that has been known to demonstrate anti-aging properties. Used in many medicines, Fo-ti has been used to treat tuberculosis and cancer as well as other kidney and blood ailments. (WebMD) This herb has shown to have rejuvenating effects on brain cells and nerves and is often recommended to treat graying hair and hair loss.
A Healthy Hair Oriented Herbal Blend: Nettle, Rosemary, Burdock, Birch, Rose Hips, Irish Moss, Coltsfoot, Dandelion, Yellow Dock, Elder Flowers, Shave Grass all of which may help your hair.
Vitamin A - Vitamin A helps cells reproduce normally—a process called differentiation. Cells that have not properly differentiated are more likely to undergo precancerous changes. Vitamin A, by maintaining healthy cell membranes, helps prevent invasion by disease-causing micro-organisms. Vitamin A also stimulates immunity and is needed for formation of bone, protein, and growth hormone. In males and postmenopausal women, up to 25,000 IU (7,500 mcg) of vitamin A per day is considered safe. In women who could become pregnant, the safest intake level is being re-evaluated; less than 10,000 IU (3,000 mcg) per day is widely accepted as safe.
Vitamin B-12 - Vitamin B12 is needed for normal nerve cell
activity, DNA replication, and production of the mood-affecting
substance called SAM (S-adenosyl methionine). Vitamin B12 works
with folic acid to control homocysteine levels.
Biotin - Biotin, a water-soluble B vitamin, acts as a coenzyme during the metabolism of protein, fats, and carbohydrates. Biotin works with the other B vitamins, such as folic acid, pantothenic acid also known as vitamin B5, and vitamin B12. Symptoms of pantothenic acid or zinc deficiency are lessened with biotin.
Added Pantothenic Acid - Pantothenic acid, sometimes called vitamin B5, is involved in the Kreb’s cycle of energy production and is needed to make the neurotransmitter acetylcholine. It is also essential in producing, transporting, and releasing the energy from fats. Synthesis of cholesterol (needed for vitamin D and hormone synthesis) depends on pantothenic acid. Pantothenic acid also activates the adrenal glands.1 Pantethine—a variation of pantothenic acid—has been reported to lower blood levels of cholesterol and triglycerides.
Added Folic Acid - Folic acid is needed for DNA synthesis. DNA allows cells—including cells in the fetus when a woman is pregnant—to replicate normally. Adequate intake of folic acid early in pregnancy is important for preventing most “neural tube” birth defects as well as some birth defects of the arms, legs, and heart. It also appears to protect against cleft palate and cleft lip formation in most, though not all, studies.
Folic acid is needed to make “SAM” (S-adenosyl methionine), which affects (and may improve) mood. Folic acid is also needed to keep homocysteine levels (an amino acid) levels in blood from rising. Excess homocysteine dramatically increases the risk of heart disease and may be linked to osteoporosis and strokes.
Added PABA - PABA is the abbreviation for paraaminobenzoic acid, a compound that is loosely considered to be a member of the vitamin B-complex. PABA appears to enhance the effects of cortisone, estrogen, and possibly other hormones by delaying their breakdown in the liver. PABA also prevents or even reverses the accumulation of abnormal fibrous tissue. An isolated study found that PABA darkened gray hair in some elderly (but not younger) individuals.
Added Cysteine - is a non-essential amino acid (protein building block). Cysteine is one of the few amino acids that contains sulfur. This allows cysteine to bond in a special way and maintain the structure of proteins in the body.
Choline and Inositol - Choline
is needed for cell membrane integrity and to facilitate the movement
of fats in and out of cells. It is also a component of the neurotransmitter
acetylcholine. Inositol is required for proper formation of cell
membranes. It affects nerve transmission and helps in transporting
fats within the body.
Linoleic Acid - an “essential fatty acid” needed for survival.
Calcium - Calcium is the most abundant mineral in the human body. Of the two to three pounds of calcium contained in the average body, 99% is located in the bones and teeth. Calcium is needed to form bones and teeth and is also required for blood clotting, transmission of signals in nerve cells, and muscle contraction.
Copper - Copper is needed to absorb and use iron. It is also part of the antioxidant enzyme superoxide dismutase (SOD). Copper is needed to make adenosine triphosphate (ATP), the energy the body runs on. Synthesis of some hormones requires copper, as does collagen (the “glue” that holds muscle tissue together) and tyrosinase (the enzyme that puts pigment into the hair and skin).
Selenium - Selenium activates an antioxidant enzyme called glutathione peroxidase, which may protect the body from cancer. A recent double-blind study following over 1,300 people found that those given 200 mcg of yeast-based selenium per day for seven years had a 50% drop in the cancer death rate compared with the placebo group. Selenium is also needed to activate thyroid hormones.
Manganese - Manganese is needed for healthy skin, bone, and cartilage formation as well as glucose tolerance. It also helps activate superoxide dismutase (SOD)—an important antioxidant enzyme.
Zinc - Zinc is a component of more than 300 enzymes that are needed to repair wounds, maintain fertility, synthesize protein, help cells reproduce, preserve vision, boost immunity, and protect against free radicals, among other functions.
Iodine - Iodine is needed to make thyroid hormones, which are necessary for maintaining normal metabolism in all cells of the body.
Nettle - There has been a great deal of controversy regarding the identity of nettle’s active constituents. One authoritative study came to the conclusion that polysaccharides (complex sugars) and lectins (large protein-sugar combination molecules) are probably the active constituents. The leaf has been shown to be anti-inflammatory by preventing the body from making inflammatory chemicals known as prostaglandins.1 The root has complicated effects on hormones and proteins that carry sex hormones (such as testosterone or estrogen) in the human body. From ancient Greece to the present, nettles have been documented for its use as a medicine for coughs and tuberculosis, to increase hair growth, and to treat arthritis.
Rosemary - A number of constituents have shown activity in the test tube. The volatile oil, including eucalyptol (cineole), is considered to have potent antibacterial effects3 and to relax smooth
muscles in the lungs.4 Rosmarinic acid has significant antioxidant activity.5 Another ingredient of rosemary, known as carnosol, inhibits cancer formation in animal studies.
