Introduction to Catalase, Gray Hair and Premature Graying
It might help to first understand why we get gray hair. Hair color is produced by tiny hair pigment cells within our hair follicles called melanocytes. As we age, the activity of these melanocytes gradually declines until they stop making pigment. New hairs grown in without pigment, resulting in gray hair.
Free radicals which can cause oxidative stress plays a big role in the aging process. “Reactive oxygen species or free radicals are highly reactive molecules that can directly damage cellular structural membranes, lipids, proteins, and DNA.” (1) This process is more of a problem as we age. “With age, the production of free radicals increases, while the endogenous defense mechanisms decrease. This imbalance leads to the progressive damage of cellular structures, presumably resulting in the ageing phenotype.” (1) The best way to protect against oxidative stress is the glutathione and ascorbate C.
Sometimes people will experience premature gray hair in their younger years. “Premature canities (grayness or whiteness of hair) may occur alone as an autosomal dominant condition or in association with various autoimmune or premature aging syndromes.” (2)
Catalase is Important
Catalase can be very helpful with gray hair and it is the key ingredient in the Gray Hair Rescind from Life Vitality. Eating foods rich in catalase can be helpful. “By eating foods high in catalase such as garlic, onions, cauliflower, potatoes, broccoli, kale and cabbage, we introduce this gray hair-fighting enzyme back into our bodies, resulting in the gradual return of our youthful hair pigmentation through a safe, all-natural process.” (3) The highest dose of catalase I have seen in any supplement is in Rejuvelon suppositories. Suppositories give the best absorption you can get in supplement form. If you want to deal naturally with trying to get rid of your gray hair then you should seriously consider using catalase.
It is important to take care of your body. A good diet, exercise and good supplements are all important. It is also important to avoid harmful lifestyle choices like smoking. I would stay away from most hair dyes as they have some very harmful chemicals which is far worse than having gray hair. You always want to take positive steps to have good overall health.
