Can An Apple Hold the Secret to Luxurious Hair?

By Sydney Krause

You’ve probably heard of the expression “an apple a day keeps the doctor away.” Now, scientists in Japan have uncovered that apples provide much more than just good health. Scientific studies conducted in Japan in 2000 found medical evidence that apple polyphenols- specifically procyanidin B-2 – increase hair growth. In fact, studies conducted showed that procyanidin B-2 increased hair growth by 300% over the control samples.

This is exciting news. Anyone who has taken medication or pharmaceutical “treatments” for hair loss knows how potentially harmful and how expensive traditional medications can be. Most man-made hair loss solutions have to be prescribed by a doctor, and getting diagnosed can take some time. Not every patient feels comfortable discussing hair loss with their health care worker, and some physicians are downright dismissive of the problems associated with hair loss.

If you do manage to get a prescription for a hair loss medication, you will have to pay hundreds of dollars – or even thousands – for treatment. Be sure to read the warning label on your medication – most pharmaceutical potions have long lists of side effects and potential hazards. Once you do start using your medication, you may notice skin irritation, pain, and even unsightly rashes. Many products have an embarrassing odour, as well.

Once you have survived all of this, you may assume that you will be able to enjoy a full head of hair, but this is not always the case. There are no guarantees and if you look for reviews of major hair growth formulas, you will quickly find that many patients are less than thrilled by the results. Now, the studies from Japan show why these patients are unhappy. Quite simply, the secret to hair loss is not harsh chemicals or strong drugs. The solution is as simple as the polyphenols in an apple.

So how do apples help your hair grow? One secret is their ultra-high antioxidant activity. In concentrated form, polyphenols from apples are far more potent antioxidants than ordinary vitamins. In medical studies, apple chemicals have been shown to improve protein synthesis, and to counteract hormones that cause follicles to shrink and wither. They also "call" resting hair follicles into active growth, and limit cellular processes that cause hairs to shed. Together, this powerful combination increases the productivity of your follicles. The result is longer, thicker, healthier hair- and more of it.

Thankfully, you don’t have to be a scientist yourself, distilling polyphenols in your own lab. An exciting new product brings you all the benefits that Japanese scientists have found in polyphenols – but in an easy-to-use, safe, and affordable form.
