Moringa - The New Hair Superfood
Let’s get back to our roots! Today, we’ll be diving deep into the benefits offered by a plant that is indigenous to the Indian subcontinent and has been used for centuries. Owing to its undeniable advantages, it is also known as the Miracle Tree. Yes, we are talking none other than about Moringa, also called the Drumstick Tree, The Ben Oil Tree or the Horseradish Tree. Few of the many benefits of Moringa are in terms of health care such as anti-fungal, anti-bacterial, antiviral, anti-depressant and anti-inflammatory properties.
However, did you know that Moringa is also a superfood for your hair? Moringa’s wide use in health care, skin care and hair care is attributed to the fact that it contains a diversity of vitamins, beta-carotene, amino-acids and phenolics. Come on, let’s dig deeper into what makes Moringa an absolute magic for your hair-
- Anti-Bacterial and Anti-Fungal Properties
Pterygospermin in Moringa enables it to possess anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties which help in prevention of dandruff, itchy scalp, psoriasis, eczema and bacterial blisters. Don’t we all wish for that one effective ingredient that works on dandruff? Here it is!
- Delays De-pigmentation
Moringa contains a particular peptide that goes to coat the hair shaft. The peptide prevents premature greying of hair. Additionally, the abundance of Vitamin C in Moringa makes it a very effective anti-oxidant as well. The free radicals in Vitamin C delay the depletion of melanin (a pigment in our hair and skin) and slows greying. Thus, Moringa helps to faint signs of ageing!
- Rejuvenation of Hair Cells
Amino acids are the building blocks of life and they help in rejuvenation of your hair cells. Why are we telling you this? Yes, you thought right! Moringa is rich in amino acids reducing alopecia- autoimmune disorder that hair loss. They stimulate the inactive hair follicles leading to boosted hair growth, even on bald areas.
Delaying the telogen phase of the hair is one of the ways to increase the life of hair cells. The presence of biotin in moringa intensifies creation of red blood cells that provide increased oxygen to the scalp, in turn reducing hair loss.
- Increasing Hair Thickness
Along with amino acids, anti-oxidants and Vitamin C, Moringa is also rich in Omega 3. Omega 3 plays an important role in hair development, and its topical application helps to retain nutrition and moisture in your hair by overcoating it.
- Improved and Healthy Hair Growth
Moringa is rich in zinc, Vitamin A and iron that aid its health benefits but also significantly enhance its benefits for your hair. While zinc nourishes the oil glands in the scalp, Vitamin A (also known as retinol) helps to secrete sebum that prevents hair breakage. The presence of these nutrients makes the scalp the most suitable environment for healthy hair growth and development. Buy Natural Herb Nourish Scalp & Hair Oil Online
