Choline for Hair Growth
How does choline benefit the hair?
Choline is an important nutrient for humans. Choline occurs as a cation that forms various salts. To maintain a healthy body, choline must be obtained from the diet. A deficiency in choline can cause muscle and liver disease, and contribute to cardiovascular disease.
Various studies have shown that choline can benefit the health of hair. Choline supports the healthy balance of the body, which has a huge impact on the health of the hair and scalp. Stress is a common cause of hair loss - choline can reduce stress levels, which helps reduce hair fall.
How does choline treat hair loss?
Although it should not be mistaken as a cure for baldness, choline can play its part in reducing hair loss. Choline acts in a similar way to a B vitamin, and, as already stated, it is helpful in countering the effects of stress, which in itself, can lead to a mark reduction in excessive hair shedding.
Choline supplements that are prescribed to patients with thinning hair, have produced significant results. Studies have also shown that choline works particularly well with inositol - a B complex vitamin. Choline helps increase the effectiveness of inositol to protect hair follicle membranes, thus reducing hair fall, and promoting hair growth. HR23+ combines choline with inositol for optimal results.
How to take/use choline?
Choline can be taken orally as a supplement (tablet or capsule), or applied topically with a serum or shampoo. Choline is safe to use, with a recommended daily dose of 500 mg for adults.
A healthy diet can contribute to healthy hair. Choline can be found in various foods, such as eggs, fish, meat, mushrooms, beans, chicken, almonds, cottage cheese, and kidney beans. Consuming choline-rich foods, with additional supplementation, can benefit the hair.
