How Can a Dietary Supplement Support Hair, Nails & Skin?
In order to ensure that you are consuming the right combination of hair growth enhancing nutrients, be sure that the supplement you take also has a vitamin B complex as well as vitamins E, C, A, folic acid, and biotin. B vitamins target conditions that are linked to thin, brittle hair such as dermatitis, excess dandruff, and eczema.
Similarly, the blend of vitamins E, C, and A promote the growth and repair of weak hair follicles and even protect the scalp from UV damage. A strong and healthy scalp supports increased hair growth. Vitamins E and C, as well as a potent substance called Methylsulfonylmethane (MSM), also enhance collagen levels, which is an important protein that increases the thickness of hair follicles.
Additional ingredients to look for in a hair growth supplement include Copper, Calcium, Ginkgo biloba, Pantothenic acid, and Choline due to their ability to boost the flow of blood to the scalp. Increased blood flow improves the supply of oxygen and nutrients that hair follicles receive. Copper in particular, has even been shown to target symptoms of alopecia and lengthen the hair growth phase. Para-amino benzoic acid and Inositol are also beneficial for alopecia sufferers because these two substances disrupt DHT activity. KISMET Hair, Nails & Skin contains each of these components.
