Green tea has been touted for many ailments. But does it play a role in hair regrowth? It has many beneficial antioxidant properties.
A study was published showing that Green Tea contains EGCG or epigallocatechin-3-gallate a major part of polyphenols.
"Recently, it was reported that EGCG might be useful in the prevention or treatment of androgenetic alopecia by selectively inhibiting 5alpha-reductase activity.
"EGCG promoted hair growth in hair follicles ex vivo culture and the proliferation of cultured DPCs. The growth stimulation of DPCs by EGCG in vitro may be mediated through the upregulations of phosphorylated Erk and Akt and by an increase in the ratio of Bcl-2/Bax ratio. Similar results were also obtained in in vivo dermal papillae of human scalps. Thus, we suggest that EGCG stimulates human hair growth through these dual proliferative and anti-apoptotic effects on DPCs."
With the Green tea formula we have extracted an All Natural non bitter caffeine to the vanilla shake. The caffeine added to the formula is 40mg per serving. We have shown from our patients better regrowth with Help Hair Shake with caffeine and have a seperate blog on the benefits of caffeine (within limits) with our products.
If you are sensitve to caffeine or suffer from palpitations or tachycardia or irregular heart beats we would not drink Help Hair Super Greens. And remember to drink this in the AM if caffeine keeps you up at night. The amount of caffeine in a serving is about half found in a cup of coffee.
Our chocolate shake has always contained chlorophyll which has many beneficial properties which we will discuss in another blog.
