You’ve got its proprietary tocotrienol botanical complex, a natural full spectrum vitamin E complex that improves the absorption of the vitamin; and antioxidant properties to repair damaged hair follicles, reduce free radical damage to the scalp and stimulate hair regeneration.
Other ingredients include saw palmetto berries to block enzymes that contribute to hair thinning, tripeptide collagen (building blocks to form a strong foundation for hair growth), biotin to strengthen the keratin structure, and keratin forte to intensify hair strength and shine. We also like how the brand gives us a realistic time frame to notice results – three to six months of consuming these vegetable cellulose capsules is the golden window.
