What is a nutraceutical?
“Nutrient” (nourishing component) plus “pharmaceutical-grade” (bioactive) = “Nutraceutical". Nutraceuticals are medical-grade, standardized, bio-optimized botanical ingredients. During the extraction and purification process, they’re held to exacting pharmaceutical-grade standards.
What makes Nutrafol’s nutraceutical ingredients stand out?
Not all ingredients are created equal.
For better efficacy, our phytoactive nutraceuticals are:
- Standardized to contain guaranteed amounts of bioactive phytonutrients.
- Tested for efficacy and healthy use in clinical studies showing specific bioactivities, health benefits and growth improvements.
- Nutrafol uses high quality, standardized, clinically-tested and patented botanical nutraceutical ingredients.
How are the Core formulas different from biotin and other hair vitamins, minerals and marine collagen supplements?
The latest hair research reveals that hair thinning is due to an accumulation of causes—stress (elevated cortisol), male and female hormones (DHT, estrogen, progesterone), oxidative damage, immune signaling dysregulation and environmental toxins as well as the natural processes of aging. Achieving healthier hair requires that you address these underlying causes on a consistent, ongoing basis.
Nutrafol Core formulas use specifically selected botanical nutraceutical ingredients that are bio-optimized for their potent and unique properties. They’ve been clinically tested for efficacy in hair growth and overall wellness. Vitamins and minerals like biotin and zinc, as well as marine collagen (protein), are important for maintaining healthy hair because they provide necessary nourishment and serve as coenzymes in the mechanics of hair production. However, on their own, they’re simply not enough. Think of it like watering a plant in sick soil. It doesn’t matter how much you water it if the roots are in an unhealthy environment. Same with a follicle – if you don’t address the underlying causes at the root, the follicle is unlikely to absorb and use the nourishment.
Before you provide the nutrients, you need to address the health of the environment with botanical nutraceuticals.
