While some do not mind, most people would rather reverse gray hair. The perception is that it makes us look old and that is not entirely the case. If we eat right, exercise and take quality supplements we can maintain a healthy looking appearance. (1)
In a previous article, we covered how your hair color is produced by tiny hair pigment cells within our hair follicles called melanocytes.
As we age, the melanocyte’s activity gradually declines until they stop making pigment. (2) New hairs grow in without pigment, resulting in gray hair. This is due to the wear and tear on hair follicles which causes a buildup of hydrogen peroxide. This will block the normal synthesis of melanin, your hair’s natural pigment. All hair cells make a tiny bit of hydrogen peroxide, but as you age the amount increases. (3) Essentially, you bleach your hair pigment from within, and your hair turns gray and then white. (4)
Summary– Hydrogen Peroxide buildup is the cause of gray hair.
The Danger of Hair Dyes
Many make the mistake of assuming hair dyes are an option. One thoroughly inspection of the ingredients in hair dyes should cause any rational person to reconsider directly applying these chemicals to their skin.
Although Hair Dyes are an immediate option, they are not a long term solution and can cause a deterioration in health. The National Cancer Institute published a study linking exposure to hair dyes as a possible cause of bladder cancer. (5)
The best way to reverse Gray Hair is from the inside out. When your internal system is supplemented with the correct ingredients to begin regrowing your natural hair color, the need for a “quick fix” with dangerous chemicals becomes an irrelevant option. When it comes to reversing gray hair in 2019, slow is fast.
Ingredients in Supplements to Reverse Gray Hair
Supplements and a holistic diet will not fight your genetics but can certainly help fight graying hair. Below are the specific ingredients you will need to naturally reverse gray hair. Follow me as I explain each necessary ingredient.
1. Copper – Reversing Gray Hair happens from the inside out. Reversing gray hair is the natural result of correct supplementation. Copper is an essential ingredient in the production of Melanin, making it a key ingredient in any Gray Hair Supplement. This study showed Copper deficiency as one of the main causes of gray hair. (6) When checking Supplement labels, make sure your Gray Hair supplement contains at least 1 mg of Copper.
2. Biotin– Vitamin H, more commonly known as Biotin, is important to hair health. Biotin deficiencies are often associated with premature grey hair. (7) Biotin deficiencies can cause hair loss as well as thin, brittle and splitting hairs. (8) Although Biotin deficiencies are rare, it is possible that low levels of biotin in the body might result in hair loss and greying of hair. Some of the functions of Biotin in the body is the production of amino acids and cellular growth. Studies have shown supplementing with Biotin (300 mcg) can help to reverse gray hair to its natural color. (9)
3. Fo-Ti – Fo-Ti is an herb commonly used in Ancient Chinese Medicine to combat Aging, Weakness and Erectile Dysfunction. (10) Your Gray Hair supplement should have a minimum of 20 mg of Fo Ti.
4. Nettle Root – Nettle Root has multiple benefits to reverse Gray Hair and is one of the oldest treatments to combat hair loss. (11) Not only does it combat Dandruff and build Immunity, it also helps to alleviate symptoms of Urinary Tract Infection (UTI). 100 Mg of Nettle Root is the correct amount you need in a Gray Hair Supplement.
5. Saw Palmetto Berries – Palmetto Berries were used by Native Americans to reverse hair loss and remedy bladder infections. (12) A study showed Palmetto as also being effective to treat enlarged Prostate in men. (13) When research Gray Hair Supplements, be sure your selection has at least 300 Mg. of “Saw Palmetto Extract.”
6. Horsetail – Horsetail is an excellent supplement to promote hair growth. (14) Once you repair Leaky Gut, this supplement will support your body to grow new hair follicles with your natural hair color. Look for at least 100 mg. of Horsetail Root in your supplement.
7. Minerals – Our bodies thrive on Minerals. We need minerals like a fire needs fuel, providing your body with powerful multivimins such as Drucker Labs Intra Max is the fuel it needs to combat premature aging, dry skin, grey hair and constipation. We recommend designing a diet rich in minerals and fermented foods to assist in nourishing and detoxifying your system from free radical toxins and external signs of aging. (15)
8. PABA – It is thought that PABA can provide more noticeable results in terms of restoring hair color when greying of hair was caused by deficiency of Vitamin B. Also, it is worthwhile to mention that it can provide better results when used in combination with folic acid (Vitamin B9), Pantothenic Acid (Vitamin B5) and Inositol. Since PABA is part of Folic Acid, you can get more of it by supplementing with Vitamin B9 or by eating more foods like molasses, spinach, liver, rice, eggs or mushrooms. (16) You will need at least 200 Mg. of PABA in your Gray Hair Supplement.
9. Pantothenic Acid – Pantothenic Acid plays a role in the development of hair color. Maintaining proper levels of pantothenic acid can strengthen your hair follicles and their cells. This vitamin contributes to the nourishment of hair follicles, helping them to function properly and promote the growth of your hair. (17) Adding pantothenic acid to the diet in the form of a supplement may reverse graying and/or prevent healthy hair from turning gray. 300 Mg. is the correct amount of Pantothenic Acid for your supplement of choice.
10. Vitamin B6 – Also known as Pyridoxine, Vitamin B6 strengthens your body’s ability to properly metabolize protein. (18) It is thought that this vitamin can be beneficial for greying hair, because it plays a role in protein metabolism. Make sure your supplement has at least 10 Mg. of Vitamin B6.
11. Folic Acid – Deficiency of Folic Acid is associated with symptoms like slower growing hair as well as hair turning grey. This is mainly because Vitamin B9 metabolize and create new proteins (including Keratin and Melanin), improves tissue growth and function of cells. Deficiency of Folic Acid is more common among individuals who have Irritable Bowel Syndrome or take certain medications. Correct supplement of Folic Acid is at least 400 Mcg.
12. Barley Grass – Whether you’d rather drink Barley Grass or supplement in capsule form, there are clear benefits of Barely Grass to reverse gray hair. (19) Wheat Grass is also high in Catalase which is known to be a powerful ingredient to reverse gray hair. (20) 20 Mg. is the correct amount of Barley Grass.
13. Zinc– Getting enough Zinc in your diet is crucial. Zinc deficiencies are suspect of causing premature gray hair in at least one study, according to an October 2014 issue of Observation. (21) The National Institute of Health reports eating foods such as oysters and Alaska king crab can ensure you get enough Zinc. (22) Correct supplementation is 10 Mg.
14. Catalase– And the last one but one of the most important ingredients found in the best gray hair supplements is catalase. Recent scientific studies have shown that having low levels of catalase in the body can cause hair to turn gray. (23) Hydrogen peroxide cannot be processed when catalase levels are low. The excess hydrogen peroxide bleaches the hair from the inside out, causing it to turn white or gray. 5000 IU is the amount you need to reverse gray hair. This video perfectly illustrates how Catalase can break down Hydrogen Peroxide.
All Ingredients in One: Gray Hair Rescind
Shopping for a Gray Hair Supplement can be difficult, especially considering the multitude of options.
DR Vitamin Solutions has researched each of these individual ingredients to create Life Vitality Gray Hair Rescind.
I have talked briefly about my personal journey in reversing my own gray hair. When my hair first began graying in my late 40’s, I was not sure where the natural path started. There was a large body of information without any practical guidance.
The one thing I knew was that Hair Dyes were not for me.
Although it seemed like a fast solution, I did not want to risk the possible consequences of exposing my skin to chemicals which I could not pronounce.
My research lead me to two simple ingredients that, with consistency, showed results within a year. Those supplements are: Catalase and Probiotics.
When I came on board with DR Vitamin Solutions, we knew we wanted to create a supplement that housed all of our years of research. Gray Hair Rescind is the conclusion of all of those years in research.
We have worked closely with our Lab to ensure each ingredient has the correct amount of the highest quality extract. The end result is a supplement that is designed to be paired with your Probiotic of choice. Remember: Reversing Gray Hair is a slow process, but in this case; slow is fast. It is better to allow your body to heal its leaky gut than to mask the problem with dangerous chemicals.
How to Begin Your Journey to Reverse Gray Hair Naturally
Beginning your journey begins to naturally reverse gray hair begins with 3 questions. We recommend pairing a 1 Month Supply of either Life Vitality Gray Hair Rescind or Remedy Link Rejuvelon with Nutrispec Immune Power to heal your gut and promote the growth of your natural hair color.
- Which Catalase Supplement will I use?
- Which Probiotic will I use?
- How does my Diet and Exercise routine support my supplement routine?
Question 1: Which Catalase Supplement will I use?
My professional recommendation is Gray Hair Rescind, if you enjoy capsule supplements. I would begin by purchasing a 1 month supply for $19.87.
Remember, consistency is key.
If your body cannot accept capsule supplements, the highest quality solution in this scenario are Remedy Link Rejuvelon Suppositories. Remedy Link handcrafts the finest suppositories made with the highest quality extracts. If you are looking to supplement your body with the highest amount of bioavailable Catalase, Rejuvelon is your solution. I cannot praise Rejuvelon any higher, it is truly an exceptional supplement and unrivaled in the industry. There is a reason Remedy Link holds the record for oldest suppository company in the United States, the quality and experience of their product is unmatched.
Question 2: Which Probiotic Will I use?
Pairing your Catalase supplement with a quality Probiotic will determine the effectiveness of your Gray Hair Protocol.
Question 3: How does my Diet and Exercise routine support my supplement routine?
Supplementation is important in order to fill the gaps in our diets, but nothing can take the place of a clean diet and regular exercise routine.
Be sure to fill your plate with fermented foods such as Onion Juice and Kombucha that will fill your gut with Probiotics.
Exercising 2-3 a week is also recommended.
Where your supplement protocol is the fuel for your diet and exercise routine, your diet and exercise routine is the backbone of your supplement protocol.
Reversing Gray Hair must be done from the inside out.
The ingredients covered in this article are recommended for any supplement you considering to reverse gray hair in 2019. We recommend pairing your Gray Hair Supplement with a high-quality Probiotic to support the growth of healthy bacteria in your gut.
Discipline and consistency are the keys to unlock success in this process.
