1) POLYGONUM MULTIFLORUM ROOT (HE SHOU WU)
Considered as one of the strongest blood tonics in Traditional Chinese Medicine, Polygonum multiforum root is the main ingredient in many tonic formulas. This herb can help in the treatment of a variety of health conditions associated with aging. Medicinal uses of Polygonum multilforum root can be dated back to 730AD. Today, Polygonum multiflorum root is a common herb prescribed to patients suffering from hair loss or premature greying hair. The hair growth stimulating activity of this herb has been attributed to its high antioxidant and dihydrotestosterone lowering activity.
2) ECLIPTA ALBA WHOLE PLANT (BHRINGRAJ)
An ancient famous Ayurvedic herb, Eclipta alba (Bhringraj) is commonly used to treat multiple ailments under the five-thousand year old holistic health system. Eclipta alba is considered to have soothing properties and is known as one of the best herbs to help reduce hair loss and promote hair growth. The Sanskrit name for Eclipa alba, Bhringraj, is literally translated to “King of Hair”.
3) CAMELLIA OIL (TSUBAKI OR TEA SEED OIL)
Camellia oil, also known as Tea seed oil or Tsubaki oil, is an ancient Japanese beauty secret. It is a member of Theaceae tea family and is rich in Vitamin A, B, E, monounsaturated fats, antioxidants, and plant collagen. The oil is non-greasy in nature and revitalises the skin, hair and nails. Gentle enough to use on sensitive skin, it also provides protection from UV rays. The high concentration of oleic acid in the oil protects, conditions and provides shine to hair with similar effect to silicone based hair serums. The camellia oil nourishes and softens hair while rejuvenating damaged hair. It is absorbed quickly into skin, hair, and nails, without leaving the oily residue feeling.
4) MORUS ALBA (WHITE MULBERRY) ROOT BARK
The white mulberry or Morus alba root bark is a member of themoraceae family. The bark of mulberry root is harvested in winter and the yellowish brown outer bark is scraped off after digging up and cleaning the root. The root is then beaten with mallet to separate it from the inner bark and then dried in the sun. The Mulberry tree root bark is commonly used to reduce hair loss and strengthen hair in Traditional Chinese and Ayurvedic medicine.
5) PLATYCADUS ORIENTALIS LEAF (BIOTA LEAF)
Platycadus orientalis leaf which is also referred to as the leaf of the biota tree has gained much interests in recent scientific studies for its hair growth stimulation properties. Also referred to as the Chinese Arborvitae tree, the biota tree is known for longevity and evergreen nature to survive in the cold dry climate of Northwest China. It is said that some of the larger biota trees planted around ancient Buddhist temples in China are more than 1,000 years old. Many modern textbooks quote the use of the biota tree to help in the treatment of hair loss. In her textbook Prescription for Herbal Healing nutritionist Phyllis Balch describes how using both the leaves and seeds of the biota tree in topical treatments help to thicken hair and promote new hair growth.
6) PANAX GINSENG ROOT
It is an ancient herb known to promote longevity and health. The traditional use of ginseng in treating hair loss is well documented. Recent scientific studies in Korea and Japan show that Ginseng can reduce hair loss by converting hair follicles from resting phase (telogen) to growth phase (anagen). It also inhibits the 5-alpha reductase enzyme which plays an important role in production of dihydrotestosterone, a key hormone in androgenetic alopecia.
7) RICE PROTEIN
Rice is one of the most common ingredients in beauty and diet regimens of people in East Asia. The rice protein used within the Hair Restore AdvancedTM formulations are derived from a unique process that isolates the protein from the carbohydrate portion of rice. Rice protein, a renowned Japanese Oriental beauty secret, protects hair from wind, dry air, and sun. It strengthens the hair to withstand the common problems of split ends, breaking, and hair fall. The small molecular size of rice protein enables it to penetrate the hair and expand the hair shaft diameter giving your hair more thickness, bounce and volume.
