Doctor Matters recommends a dietary supplement called Folexin which is designed to support thicker, stronger and healthier hair. Folexin not only increases the rate of hair growth, but it also helps protect against dryness in the hair while reducing the chance of hair breakages.
The essential vitamins in Folexin include:
Folic Acid - Folic acid has proven effects on cell generation. Hence, it is a natural stimulator for natural hair growth in both men and women. Regular consumption of folic acid has been found miraculously effective in preventing male pattern baldness.
Biotin - Biotin deficiency causes abnormal metabolism of fatty acids, which possibly leads to hair loss, unexplained hair breakage, and thin, brittle, splitting hairs. By taking biotin, you can maintain healthy hair, and reduce hair loss.
Vitamin B6 - Vitamin B6 is an important member of the Vitamin B-complex family. It activates the enzymes and chemical reactions that start the metabolism of the hair proteins, keratin and melanin, in the hair follicles.
