Wellwoman Tricologic - The changes which occur as we age, as well as an inadequate diet, stress, hair styling and lifestyle, can all impact hair condition, strength and growth. Shedding of excess hair in women is different to that in men and can begin around the age of 30 and in some cases even as early as the 20s. It usually becomes noticeable around the age of 40, and may be even more noticeable after menopause. By the age of fifty, 50% of women will probably experience some degree of excess hair loss.
Healthy hair growth is related to many factors including:
Nutrition and your hair
Having a healthy head of hair and a healthy scalp begins with the proper nutritional building blocks. The hair follicle is a highly active factory and metabolic requirements for oxygen, energy and protein synthesis must be met to maintain healthy hair. A reduction of nutrients in the diet or a reduction of blood supply to the scalp can threaten the delivery of adequate oxygen, glucose and essential nutrients which can have a negative impact on the body’s ability to assimilate nutrients required to maintain normal follicle metabolism and hair growth. Supplementation can therefore play an important role in safeguarding an individual’s nutritional intake.
How does Wellwoman Tricologic work?
Wellwoman Tricologic has been scientifically formulated to provide a complete spectrum of 26 nutrients, including biomarine collagen, amino acids and special plant derived nutrients, which play a role in scalp health and hair follicle metabolism.

Grape Seed Extract - containing powerful antioxidants to promote a healthy circulation and help protect cells from the damaging effects of free radicals, which can lead to premature ageing of the hair.
Acerola Cherry Extract - one of the richest natural sources of vitamin C. A natural anti-oxidant that acts in protecting fatty acids and cells against the damaging effect of free radicals, that can cause the break down of cells.
High Grade Collagen to support Hair structure
The Hydrocollamer (Hydrolysed Collagen HCP) used in Wellwoman Tricologic is a form of the protein collagen which is a rich source of the amino acids glycine, L-proline and L-hydroxyproline.
Collagen is the most abundant form of natural protein found in the body and it makes up the primary support structure of the hair. It is not commonly known that it gives hair strength plus an inherent ability to retain moisture. After around 25 years of age, levels of collagen begin to decrease at a rate of approximately 1.5% a year, such changes are thought to contribute towards the hair becoming thinner and more dull. Also included in the advanced Tricologic formulation is the amino acid L-Cystine, which may assist in maintaining hair strength.
Both Biotin and Niacin play key roles in scalp health. Biotin is important through its action on the metabolism of scalp oils and may prevent the greying. Niacin helps maintain blood circulation within the scalp and help support the metabolism of help hair follicles.

Vitamin D3– Adequate Vitamin D is essential for hair health.
Antioxidant vitamin E– help to protect against the damaging effects of free radicals, which can lead to premature ageing. Vitamin E may help support skin repair.
B-vitamin complex - essential in the health and growth of rapidly dividing cells such as those present in the hair follicle
