iron (Fe), zinc (Ze), copper (Cu), and biotin (Biotin, Vitamin B7) as well as iodine and manganese.

To create successful hair growth, blood circulation becomes extremely important.

Iron is effectively transfers oxygen to the hair scalp, roots and follicles so they can survive, thrive and grow.

Zinc (Ze) deficiencies are often present in people experiencing hair loss.

Zinc deficiencies may also manifest as chronically dry scalp, skin and hair.  It also may result in slow wound healing and sex hormone deficiencies.

Copper And Biotin

Copper (Cu) supports skin health, immune function, and proper iron absorption. It’s often deficient in the modern diet. Copper deficiency mimics iron-deficiency anemia, and presents as low white blood cells.

Biotin (Biotin, Vitamin B7) is known as Vitamin H or Vitamin B7.

It helps to prevent hair loss, recover brittle nails and helps strengthen skin and hair.

Biotin deficiencies are known to manifest as hair loss.

Biotin is needed for good hair growth, but also for digestion of food and the management of blood glucose.

If vitamins, minerals and nutrients are not properly digested, they may not make it to the hair roots.

Iodine And Manganese

Iodine is required to produce thyroid hormone, which regulates your metabolism. Low iodine manifests as hypothyroidism which is known to trigger hair loss in some circumstances.

Manganese is necessary in the proper amounts in order to encourage healthy hair growth.
