Vitamins and Minerals and Fatty Acids…Oh My!
Increase Results by Increasing Cellular Growth
Educating our patients about nutritional needs beneficial to the skin and scalp will only increase the success of PepFactor Scalp treatments. There are many factors involved in hair loss and lack luster skin, but this focus is on the nutritional component. Iron rich foods include lean red meat, spinach, beef liver, beans, and shellfish. Iron is essential to produce hemoglobin and low hemoglobin levels bring less oxygen which is a necessity to viable hair follicles. B-Vitamins also aid in creating red blood cells. Food sources of B-Vitamins include salmon, leafy greens, and eggs. Vitamins C and E, antioxidants found in fruits and vegetables, help prevent cell damage and inflammation. Vitamin A in spinach and carrots encourages cell growth. Essential minerals for a healthy scalp include Zinc, found in oysters, pumpkin seeds, and whole grains, and Selenium in Brazil nuts and yellowfin tuna.
Luminous and younger looking skin comes from nourishment from within as well as topical serums like PepFactor Skin. In addition to the above-mentioned vitamins and minerals, essential fatty acids (efa) are beneficial to keeping your skin healthy and vibrant. EFAs are best consumed in diet as the body cannot synthesize them. These Polyunsaturated Fatty Acids (PUFAs) are included in a diet rich in EFAs oily fish, seeds, nuts, and avocados. Essential Fatty Acids include both Omega 3 and Omega 6. It is important that Omega 3 Fatty Acids are at a minimum of a 2:1 ratio to Omega 6 and even as high as a 4:1 ration for optimal health. Inflammation could occur without the correct balance.
PepFactor’s proprietary blend of basic Fibroblast Growth Factors (bFGFs) and either Copper Peptides in the Scalp Kits or Hyaluronic Acid in the Skin Kits contain great ingredients to achieve positive results. The benefit of including Copper Peptides with our Scalp Kit shows in thicker, voluminous, younger feeling hair. The presence of Hyaluronic Acid adds moisture and radiance to skin.
