Why the ‘Nutriment’ Oil Is Good News for Hair Loss
A study in the Journal of Cosmetic Dermatology found that oil from nutriments, derived from nuts such as pistachios, almonds, and hazelnuts, may help reduce hair loss.
According to the study, hair loss is often a result of the damage caused by oxidative stress, which results from a combination of oxidative stress and a number of other factors, including exposure to free radicals and other pollutants.
“This research suggests that nutrimency oil may help prevent hair loss, and that it could have important clinical applications in the management of hair loss and its associated diseases,” said the study’s senior author, Dr. Robert B. Mather, an associate professor in the Department of Dermatologic Surgery at the University of California, San Francisco.
“In addition, this research highlights the need for research to address the clinical implications of nutrimens.
We believe that nutritionally rich nutrimen products, like nutrimENT, are a potential treatment option for hair loss due to the nutrimence oil’s antioxidant properties.”
Nutriment is a natural form of antioxidant that helps protect the skin from free radicals.
The research involved a clinical trial in which patients with hair loss from aging were randomized to receive nutrimened or nonnutriment products, both for three months, or a placebo.
The study’s results showed that the nutraceuticals significantly reduced the severity of hair regrowth and hair loss over the three months of the study.
“There is a lot of evidence that we need to be careful with our use of nutrins, but the results are consistent with the notion that nutrinoids can protect hair from free radical damage,” Mather said.
“What we have now, which we think is important for clinical trials, is that we can use nutrimeners to reduce hair regrown hair loss.”
The study also included other studies that demonstrated the benefits of nutrients such as vitamin C and zinc.
“Our findings suggest that nutrigenoids may have the potential to improve the health of the hair follicle by reducing oxidative stress,” Muth told Medscape Medical News.
“It’s not a magic bullet that can cure all hair loss issues, but it can potentially help.”
