Artichoke leaf extract is obtained from the leaves of artichoke (Cynara scolymus L). The active ingredients contained in the extract are hydroxycinnamic derivatives. Artichokes have antioxidant compounds like silymarin, caffeic acid, and ferulic acids that help the body protect itself from harmful free-radical agents. This slows the aging process of the skin, scalp, and hair through the blocking of those harmful agents. UV rays inherently damage the melanin and protein constituents of hair follicles, but those changes can be repelled when treated with artichoke leaf extract.
A rich source of minerals like copper, iron, potassium, manganese, and phosphorus are vital to healthy hair. Copper assists in hair growth by increasing the follicle cell proliferation and decreasing programmed follicle cell death. Iron plays an essential role in getting nutrition and oxygenation to the hair roots. A potassium deficiency is one of the major reasons behind hair loss in both men and women and a deficiency of manganese may result in weaker hair. These minerals along with the calcium and phosphorous replenish dry, damaged, dull, and lifeless strands improving the strength, look, feel, and overall quality of the hair. The vitamin C in artichokes is good for scalp inflammation and even some mild infections or scalp ailments like dandruff.
To reap the benefits of artichokes for both your hair and the rest of your body, add them to your grocery list and incorporate them into your products.
