Ginseng has long been regarded as one of the most popular herbal treatments in Asia. Its popularity has expanded in North America, with applications in the health, nutrition, and cosmetics industries. Ginseng comes in two varieties: American Ginseng and Asian Ginseng, both of which include ginsenosides, the chemical components responsible for all of its therapeutic benefits. We've already discussed the skin advantages of ginseng, commonly known as the root of immortality, so let's look at the benefits it offers for hair.
GINSENG PROMOTES HAIR GROWTH
Ginseng is composed of active components known as ginsenosides, which promote hair growth and cycle. Its capacity to combat some of the physiological reasons that cause hair loss is the primary reason it promotes hair growth.
Ginsenosides, for example, have an anti-oxidant impact that modifies the hair development cycle and influences keratinocyte and dermal papilla growth. When it comes to UV-ray exposure that causes hair thinning and loss, these active ingredients work as reversal agents. Furthermore, its anti-aging qualities are credited to delaying collagen breakdown and enhancing natural hyaluronic acid synthesis.
Ginseng's nutritional ingredients, such as saponin and phytosterols, aid in the maintenance of a healthy scalp. Saponin is an antibacterial molecule that successfully fights infections, and phytosterols are thought to be useful in reducing premature greying of hair.
CAN GINSENG SLOW DOWN HAIR LOSS?
Ginseng's herbal qualities can control and reduce the amounts of the inflammatory chemical that causes hair loss (TGF-1). This inflammatory chemical causes the hair development cycle to enter the falling out phase. Ginseng has the opposite effect, extending the life of hair throughout its growth period. Overall, it encourages a healthy hair growth cycle in which the falling off phase does not outlast the growing out phase.
