Hair loss treatment: The vitamin supplement shown to promote hair growth

According to a review article published in the International Journal of Trichology, oxidative stress is prevalent in many skin conditions, including normal skin ageing. Oxidative stress also appears to play a role in premature hair loss, the article says. Patients with alopecia generally exhibit lower levels of antioxidants in their scalp area, which further supports this association, notes a study published in the Tropical Life Sciences Research. In light of this fact, a study was conducted to investigate the effect of tocotrienol supplementation on hair growth in volunteers suffering from hair loss.

Lab insight: measuring vitamins

An interesting analytical challenge still exists for measuring vitamin E in foods. In the US, the FDA defines declarable vitamin E as alpha‑tocopherol where there is both a very bioactive naturally‑occurring form, and a less bioactive man‑made form.1 The FDA requires manufacturers to make and keep written records to verify the amount of both forms1 because there is no recognised analytical method that differentiates between the two. Until a method is developed and internationally recognised, the lab needs to have access to those records to properly calculate the amount placed in a nutritional facts panel.
