If you are looking for a natural solution to improve your hair loss, you might want to consider pea sprout extract. Pea sprout extract is derived from the sprouts of the common pea plant (Pisum sativum) and has been shown to stimulate hair growth and reduce hair loss in clinical trials.

How does pea sprout extract work?

Pea sprout extract works by targeting the hair follicles, the tiny structures that produce hair. Hair follicles go through a cycle of growth (anagen), regression (catagen) and resting (telogen). Hair loss occurs when the anagen phase shortens and the telogen phase lengthens, resulting in fewer hairs growing and more hairs falling out.

Pea sprout extract helps to restore the balance of the hair cycle by increasing the expression of two key genes: FGF7 and noggin. FGF7 is a growth factor that stimulates the proliferation of hair follicle cells, while noggin is a protein that inhibits a signaling pathway that causes hair follicle regression. By upregulating these genes, pea sprout extract prolongs the anagen phase and shortens the telogen phase, leading to more hair growth and less hair loss.

What are the benefits of pea sprout extract?

Pea sprout extract has several benefits for your hair health, such as:

- Increasing the ratio of anagen to telogen hairs by 78% after three months of use
- Reducing hair loss by 28% after four weeks of use
- Improving hair density and thickness
- Enhancing hair strength and elasticity
- Providing nutrients such as vitamins, minerals, amino acids and antioxidants

How can you use pea sprout extract?
