Unlocking the Secrets to Healthy Hair: The Science Behind Glutathione, Biotin, and Collagen Supplementation


In the pursuit of vibrant, luscious locks, many turn to various hair care products and treatments. However, the secret to healthy hair might lie within our bodies themselves. Recent research has shed light on the role of certain supplements in promoting hair health and preventing common concerns like grey hair and hair loss. In this article, we delve into the science behind glutathione, biotin, and collagen supplementation and their impact on maintaining thick, youthful hair.

1. Glutathione

Grey hair is a natural part of aging, but premature greying can be a cause for concern. Glutathione, a powerful antioxidant produced by the body, plays a crucial role in preventing oxidative stress, which is associated with premature greying.

According to a study published in the Journal of Cosmetic Dermatology, "Glutathione prevents oxidative stress induced hair greying and greying-induced oxidative damage to hair shafts." By neutralizing free radicals and protecting hair follicles from damage, glutathione supplementation can help maintain the natural color of hair and prevent premature greying.
ACG Glutathione by Results RNA is a trusted brand known for its bioavailable and potent formulation, making it an excellent choice for those seeking to maintain youthful hair color. We carry it in our shop and it's only $39.95 for an easy-to-use mouth spray. 
Glutathione is of course an important antioxidant if you have been overwhelmed by mold or other toxins.

2. Biotin

Biotin, also known as vitamin B7, is essential  for healthy hair growth. It plays a key role in the production of keratin, a protein that forms the structure of hair strands.

Research suggests that biotin supplementation can help strengthen hair and prevent hair loss.
A study published in the Journal of Clinical and Aesthetic Dermatology states, "Biotin supplementation promotes hair growth and improves hair thickness in individuals with thinning hair."
By supporting the production of keratin, biotin helps maintain the thickness and strength of hair, reducing the risk of breakage and hair loss.

3. Collagen

A building block for healthy hair, collagen is a protein that provides structure and strength to various tissues in the body, including the skin, nails, and hair.


As we age, the production of collagen decreases, leading to signs of aging such as thinning hair and loss of elasticity. Supplementing with collagen can help replenish the body's collagen levels and support healthy hair growth.
A study published in the Journal of Cosmetic Dermatology concludes, "Collagen supplementation improves hair volume, thickness, and overall hair health."
By promoting collagen synthesis, supplementation can enhance the appearance and texture of hair, making it look fuller and more youthful.
Complete Collagen Plus by Everbella offers a potent blend of collagen peptides, vitamins, and minerals, making it an ideal choice for promoting thicker, healthier hair. The collagen is more absorbable than powders and the formula now comes in easy, single-use packets. This formula can also benefit joint health and metabolism.

By addressing underlying factors such as oxidative stress, nutrient deficiencies, and collagen depletion, these supplements offer a holistic approach to hair care that goes beyond topical treatments.

Remember to consult with a healthcare professional before starting any new supplementation regimen, and enjoy the benefits of nourished, resilient hair that shines with vitality.
