Peppers may be the spice in-exquisite cuisine created around the world, but the plant compounds in these little gems are also responsible for remarkable hair growth.
There are two primary plant compounds in cayenne peppers or chili peppers that stimulate your hair follicles to grow hair. We have a 3-step hair growth line we developed at BotanicalHairLab.com based on the power of peppers!
Capsaicin and Quercetin
Capsaicin and quercetin along with other compounds in peppers do many things to encourage your hair follicles to grow new hair:
Our Capsaicin+ Anti-Hair Loss HerbalCeautical formulation was created to work synergistically to infuse nature’s genius into your scalp, while supporting your hair follicles to accept that nourishment enriched with Niacinamide, Allantoin and Azelaic Acid.
Capsaicin is a biologically active component of chili peppers. It enlivens the palate when you eat spicy foods that contain peppers, but it also binds to a nerve receptor (TRPV1) that influences the levels of serotonin, somatostatin, and substance P. Capsaicin treats pain be “exhausting” these nerve receptors through stimulation, so that they can no longer register discomfort. It is a similar phenomenon you may experience when applying heat (as from a hot bath or a heating pad) to sore muscles.
Additional substances in peppers called capsinoids are like capsaicin’s cousins, and may also have similar beneficial properties. Capsaicin is part of a cluster of plant molecules that offer medicinal and healing benefits.
Capsaicin is beneficial for treating psoriasis and other skin conditions separate from hair growth, but since flaky, dry or itchy skin on the scalp can cause clogged, inflamed, or irritated hair follicles, treating this problem also encourages hair growth. Interestingly, capsaicin may also help with depression and other mental health disorders since it encourages an endorphin dump.
Our Capsaicin+ Anti-Hair Loss line promotes the rejuvenation and healing of your hair follicles, so that you can grow healthy hair.
Capsaicin is a biologically active component of chili peppers. It enlivens the palate when you eat spicy foods that contain peppers, but it also binds to a nerve receptor (TRPV1) that influences the levels of serotonin, somatostatin, and substance P , the compound in the body that triggers inflammation and pain impulses from the central nervous system are present when you eat or apply capsaicin to your skin. Thispain-relieving phytochemical triggers the body to release endorphins, your body’s own opiates. This one action reduces inflammation and combats pain and irritation of the scalp.
But how does capsaicin specifically
encourage new hair growth?
Increased levels of substance P, the compound in the body that triggers inflammation and pain impulses from the central nervous system arepresent when you eat or apply capsaicin to your skin. This pain-relieving phytochemical triggersthe body to release endorphins, your body’s own opiates. This one action reduces inflammation and combats pain and irritation of the scalp.
Chronic inflammation is caused when proteins called cytokines become over-active. Instead of going to attack foreign pathogens or viruses, or send blood cells to help heal an injury they start to attack the body’s own cells. This is true of the cells which create your hair follicles and scalp. Instead of promoting healthy hair growth with healthy hair follicles your body begins to treat hair follicles as a foreign pathogen, and attacks them.
Your hair roots then cannot be nourished with oxygen rich blood and the vitamins and minerals, or proteins that make hair. Capsaicin makes the body more alkaline, which decreases inflammation even further.
The increase of substance P also seems to promote healthy blood sugar levels, which promotes a healthy immune response – meaning your hair follicles won’t be attacked.
Capsaicin is a primary ingredient in our Herbalceutical 3-step Anti-hair Loss Therapy Capsaicin formulation. Ancient cultures used chili peppers for everything from curing a toothache to managing diabetes, but we love capsaicin because it relieves skin conditions, and boosts blood flow so that lots or vitamins and minerals can make their way to your hair follicles and hair roots while decreasing inflammation that would prevent those nutrients from getting to your hair’s roots.
Our Capsaicin+ Anti-Hair-Loss Shampoo, Pre-Shampoo serum, and conditioner work synergistically to deliver the incredible benefits of pepper’s most active compounds to your hair.
Quercetin is a flavonoid and antioxidant compound found in peppers. It is high in Niacin, Vitamin B6, Vitamin B, Vitamin D, and Riboflavin. These and other nutrients in quercetin are extremely powerful free-radical scavengers. Free radicals are the substances that make us sick and cause us to age prematurely. They damage cells. Free radicals can even cause DNA to mutate!
Quercetin is yet another anti-inflammatory compound that promotes hair growth, and also boosts energy to cells. This substance also balances stress hormones like cortisol which can impede hair growth.
Quercetin is alsoanti-inflammaging. A funny medical term that was created to describe inflammation that is linked to aging cells.
When your hair follicle cells age prematurely due to free radical exposure, they are more likely to stay in a dormant cycle longer – but with peppers and our capsaicin formulations your hair follicles get a rich dose of cell-loving, hair-growing plant compounds to make the hair-growth cycle longer and more productive.
