The Benefits of MSM + Biotin for Hair Growth

The Power of Essential Nutrients for Hair Health

Having a luscious, vibrant mane isn't just a matter of genetics – it's about giving your hair the nutrients it needs to flourish. In the quest for healthier, more resilient hair, nutrients like MSM, Biotin and Bamboo Silica take center stage. Let's explore the roles these vital nutrients and more play in supporting hair growth, minimizing shedding, and enhancing overall hair health.*


1. MSM (Methylsulfonylmethane): Often referred to as nature's beauty mineral, MSM provides a rich source of sulfur, a crucial element for hair health. Sulfur supports the formation of strong bonds between the keratin proteins in hair, contributing to its strength and resilience. Additionally, MSM's inflammation modulating properties may create an optimal environment for healthy hair growth. In one 4 month study evaluating the effects of 1g - 3g of oral MSM (as OptiMSM) supplementation on hair health, 87% of participants reported a significant increase in hair volume, hair shine and overall hair health.The group taking the higher dose generally had better results than those on the lower dose although after just 8 weeks, both doses of MSM appeared to increase hair volume and hair volume continued to improve over the course of the study!*


In another 4 month study evaluating the effects of just 1g of MSM (as OptiMSM) on hair growth in those with telogen effluvia (excessive shedding), 82% reported a reduction in hair loss, 92.5% noticed the growth of new hairs, 87.8% reported that their hair was less brittle and 33% exhibited improvement in hair density after just 6 weeks of use.*



2. Biotin: Known as the "hair vitamin," biotin is a B-vitamin that aids in the metabolism of amino acids, including methionine and cysteine. These amino acids are fundamental to the production of keratin, the protein structure of hair. Biotin may help prolong the anagen (growth) phase, potentially reducing shedding during the telogen (rest) phase.*


3. Bamboo Silica: Rich in silica, bamboo silica supports collagen formation, a critical component for maintaining the strength and elasticity of hair. By contributing to the anagen phase, bamboo silica encourages the growth of new, healthy hair.


4. Vitamin C: Beyond its well-known immune-boosting properties, vitamin C is a key player in collagen synthesis. Strong hair follicles rely on collagen, making vitamin C essential for maintaining the structure and integrity of hair during the anagen phase.*


5. Vitamin D: Emerging research suggests a connection between vitamin D deficiency and hair loss. Vitamin D receptors in hair follicles influence the anagen phase, highlighting the importance of maintaining adequate vitamin D levels for healthy hair growth.*


6. Vitamin B12 and Folic Acid: These B-vitamins play a vital role in red blood cell production, supporting the transportation of oxygen and nutrients to hair follicles during the anagen phase. Deficiencies in B12 and folic acid may lead to premature hair loss.*


7. Vitamin K2: While renowned for its role in bone health, vitamin K2 may also contribute to optimal hair health. By regulating calcium deposition in the scalp, it potentially prevents hindrances to hair growth during the anagen phase.*



Understanding the intricacies of the hair growth cycle involves recognizing the anagen, telogen, and catagen phases. Nutrients contribute to the synchronization of these phases, promoting strong, resilient hair.
