MediGrey works mimicking the enzyme which produces the pigment of colour in the hair follicles.
The Tyrosinase (TRP-2) in MediGrey helps your hair to retain its natural colour, while the polyphenol in the Red Grape skin extract helps to maintain the colour by slowing down the hairs ageing process, through stabilising the damage caused to hair by free-radicals.
MediGrey also contains AbsorbaMax, an element that ensures the uptake of MediGrey into the body is both quick and effective, whilst allowing the effects to last longer.
The Science behind TRP-2
The colour of each hair is determined by cells known as melanocytes which produce the pigments that colour hair. Their numbers are kept topped up by a pool of melanocyte stem cells in the hair follicle.
Over time the pool of these stem cells declines and so they are unable to refresh the pigment producing cells after each cycle, meaning hair turns grey and then white because it lacks pigment.
Melanocyte is also found in the stem cells of the skin but this does not lose its colour with age because of the crucial enzyme TRP-2. TRP-2 is the enzyme missing in the hair follicle stem cells. TRP-2 works by protecting the melanocyte stem cells from damage thus helping them to last longer.
MediGrey mimic the effect of TRP-2 and helps maintain a healthy population of melanocyte stem cells and allows the hair to retain its colour for longer.
The Importance Of Polyphenol
Polyphenols are antioxidants that work to prevent cellular damage within the body. Polyphenols are not essential for human nutrition but sufficient evidence is being gathered to support the notion that they play a significant role in attaining optimal health and even preventing disease.
Polyphenols within humans act as antioxidants, thereby helping to remove free radicals from the body. Free radicals damage cells, causing them to age (otherwise known as oxidative stress). It is said that Polyphenols slow the rate of oxidative stress as they stabilise free radical molecules. Resveratrol, a polyphenol found in grape skins and red wine, is often taken in supplemental form for its supposed life-extension benefits.
