Folifort Scientifically-proven Ingredients and Their Benefits
Folifort contains a blend of herbs, plant extracts, and essential vitamins and minerals, all obtained from non-GMO crops. A great deal of scientific evidence has supported the efficacy of all ingredients present in Folifort. All ingredients are safe, well-researched, and clinically studied.
Here’s all you need to know about the key ingredients in Folifort and their benefits in the light of science:
Tuber Fleeceflower (Fo-Ti)
A Chinese herb widely known for its analeptic properties, tuber fleece flower, has been used in traditional medicine for centuries. Fo-Ti is a hanging plant replete with natural tonics and anti-aging compounds. Its root is processed to make herbal medicine that helps treat insomnia, high cholesterol, menstrual problems, malarial disorders, atherosclerosis, and fatigue.
Due to its adaptogenic properties, tuber fleece flower extract helps alleviate stress on your scalp. It promotes cell regeneration in your scalp to increase the number of hair follicles, thereby stimulating hair growth. It helps inhibit hair loss, promotes hair regrowth in bald areas, and gives strength and vitality to your hair.
Biotin (Vitamin B7)
Biotin is a B vitamin involved in a large number of metabolic processes in the human body. It is naturally produced in your intestines. However, some people may experience biotin deficiency due to genetic factors, dietary factors, and gut disorders associated with the intestines, e.g., inflammatory bowel disease. Subclinical biotin deficiency can lead to hair thinning, weak fingernails, and erythema (typically on the face).
Biotin supplements are widely used to strengthen hair and fingernails. Biotin helps combat hair loss by strengthening your hair at the follicular level. It boosts the rate of follicle growth by stimulating keratin (fibrous structural proteins that make up your hair and nails) production in your body. It makes your hair thick and strong enough to withstand all types of environmental stress, i.e., chemical (e.g., toxins), mechanical (e.g., tight braids or other hairstyles), and thermal (heat damage due to straightening, curling, etc.).
A trace mineral commonly found in soil, selenium plays a crucial role in various metabolic functions in your body and helps combat certain diseases. Due to its powerful antioxidant properties, it helps fight many types of cell damage, e.g., cell damage that causes hair loss. It helps the body get rid of free radicals, i.e., agents that cause oxidative cell damage that weakens hair follicles and causes premature aging.
Selenium stimulates hair growth by activating enzymes that promote the regeneration of hair follicles, thereby inducing hair growth and hair regrowth. It also helps treat hair dryness. However, hair dryness is more effectively treated by topical administration of selenium.
Pantothenic Acid (Vitamin B5)
A water-soluble B vitamin, pantothenic acid, is required for a wide range of metabolic functions in your body, i.e., synthesis and breakdown of proteins, fats, and carbohydrates. In addition to its metabolic role, vitamin B5 is required for healthy liver function, nervous function, gut health, red blood cells production, and regulation of stress-related hormones. People deficient in vitamin B5 are prone to experience acne, allergies, baldness, dandruff, asthma, alcoholism, headaches, dizziness, chronic fatigue syndrome, etc.
Vitamin B5 helps protect hair follicles from environmental stress and rebuild individual hair shafts, reducing hair loss, boosting hair volume, and improving hair manageability. Vitamin B5 supplementation is beneficial in treating hair damage caused by heat styling.
Another trace mineral, zinc, is required for many functions in your body, i.e., DNA synthesis, protein synthesis, tissue repair, gene expression, enzymatic activity, growth and development, and immune function. Zinc is vital to hair growth due to its role in protein synthesis and tissue repair. Zinc deficiency can inhibit hair re-growth and make your hair and scalp prone to environmental damage.
Zinc supplementation helps counter the effects of a zinc-deficient diet. It provides your body with optimum levels of zinc to promote hair growth and repair. It also helps maintain sebaceous glands (oil glands) around your hair follicles, thereby shielding your scalp against environmental stress.
A protein that makes 90% of your hair, keratin is the main structural component of your hair. It is a protective protein that is less prone to tearing or scratching than other types of cells produced by your body. Keratin deficiency can lead to decreased hair volume, brittle hair, rough hair texture, hair loss, and bald patches on the scalp. Though there are many ways to provide your hair with the keratin it needs, oral administration yields the most effective results. Keratin supplementation helps stimulate hair growth and restores the natural thickness of your hair. It smoothes down the cells that overlap to form your hair stalks, thereby making your hair smoother and less frizzy.
Another structural protein, collagen, constitutes 25 to 35% of your entire body’s protein content. It is the primary structural protein found in the extracellular matrix of various connective tissues. It supports your hair health in many ways, i.e., provides amino acids required to build individual hair shafts, prevents damage to hair follicles, inhibits age-related hair thinning, and slows graying.
Though your hair is primarily made up of keratin, it needs certain amino acids to build that keratin, e.g., proline (a non-essential amino acid). Collagen is mainly made up of three amino acids, i.e., proline, glycine, and hydroxyproline. It provides your hair with the proline required to build keratin. Additionally, collagen has antioxidant properties that prevent oxidative cell damage in your hair follicles that may accelerate hair graying.
Collagen constitutes 70% of your dermis (inner layer of the two skin layers). Collagen production in the skin declines with age, reducing the elasticity and strength of your dermis, thereby inhibiting your scalp’s ability to hold hair. This leads to hair thinning. Getting collagen through supplementation will make up for all the body-produced collagen you lose as you grow old.
A sugar molecule present throughout your body, hyaluronic acid is a natural humectant that helps retain your scalp’s natural moisture. Due to its hygroscopic properties, it helps your hair absorb moisture from the air and keep excess moisture without saturating the internal hair structure. This helps reduce hair loss significantly. Additionally, it helps improve blood circulation in the scalp, stimulating hair growth, particularly in bald areas.
How Does Folifort Work?
After years of research, scientists have discovered the root cause of hair loss, i.e., a steroid called dihydrotestosterone (DHT). DHT is formed from testosterone due to the catalytic action of 5α-reductase, an enzyme involved in steroid metabolism. DHT is present in various body parts, including seminal vesicles, epididymides (ducts behind male reproductive organs, testes), liver, brain, prostate gland, skin, and hair follicles. The increased levels of DHT in hair follicles causing them to miniaturize, thereby causing hair loss and balding.
High levels of DHT induce most of the hair loss experienced by both men and women. DHT production accelerates in your body as you age. The increased levels of DHT in your hair follicles making them clogged, thereby stopping hair growth. To inhibit the production of DHT, the action of the enzyme that produces DHT needs to be inhibited.
The catalytic activity of 5α-reductase is suppressed by the vitamins and minerals present in Folifort. While the vitamins and minerals present in Folifort inhibit DHT production from unclogging your follicles, the antioxidants and tonics present in the supplement add to your hair health by reversing damage caused due to environmental stress or cell damage.
