THE SCIENCE

Hair Health

Zinc has been studied for its ability to contribute to the maintenance of normal and healthy hair. Similarly, biotin (Vitamin B7) also assists in hair maintenance, growth and strength through its contribution to hair follicle formation. Beyond this, biotin assists with the regrowth of lost hair. Riboflavin (Vitamin B2) supports hair health as its flavoproteins (the building blocks of riboflavin) are essential for the growth of healthy hair. As a whole, riboflavin is necessary for the normal development and repair of numerous body tissues, hair included.

Metabolism 

Metabolism refers to the process in which your body converts what you consume into energy. Metabolic rate is the speed at which it does this, measured by the amount of energy per unit of time that a person is able to process to keep their body functioning. Metabolism is often thought of as being interchangeable with the word digestion, but it is actually far more complex and widespread than that. Metabolism exists in every cell in the body, as each unique cell requires energy to do its job. Maintaining a good metabolic rate means each cell in the body is able to yield enough energy to carry out its role in the body – whether it’s a cell in skeletal muscle, the lungs, skin, gastrointestinal tract, etc. There are a number of factors that can slow your metabolic rate, they vary from stress and fad dieting to age, muscle mass, hormonal factors and more. Metabolic rate will also vary from person to person. When metabolism is slower, and/or you consume more calories than your body is able to convert to energy and use, the body is designed to store this excess energy in adipose tissue (fat cells). There are a number of nutritional minerals and vitamins that can support metabolism. Biotin is one of them, as it helps convert fats and carbohydrates (macronutrients from food) into energy. Beyond this, biotin is involved in energy-yielding metabolism and subsequent energy production.

Riboflavin is predominantly found as an integral component of coenzymes, flavin adenine dinucleotide (FAD) and flavin mononucleotide (FMN). FAD is an important component of the respiratory chain, closely involved in energy generation. It assists with releasing energy from food and moreover helps convert carbohydrates into adenosine triphosphate (ATP) – the carrier of energy within cells. As a B Vitamin, riboflavin is also involved in other metabolic energy-producing processes, including the citric acid cycle, as well as contributing to iron transportation and metabolism within the body.

Iodine is a trace element that supports thyroid function and energy production. The main function of iodine is to synthesise thyroid hormones triiodothyronine (T3) and thyroxine (T4). Thyroid hormones are involved in stimulating basal metabolic rate, as well as the production of body heat. Beyond this, thyroid hormones are also involved in cellular oxygen consumption/use used to produce ATP (which in turn supports metabolic rate).

EXTRA INFO

How long will it take for my hair health to improve? 

Within the initial 30 days, SWIISH Hair & Metabolism™ will start to lay the foundations of its work as your body begins absorbing and utilising the supplement. Results may vary from person to person, but from 30-60 days is when customers will typically start to see results with hair growth and health. Then, by 90 days most customers experience noticeable results and sustained differences in their hair health, as well as additional benefits including nail health. 

Will SWIISH Hair & Metabolism™ work for my hair type?

This product uses a powerful formulation that may assist all hair types, regardless of gender.

Who should use SWIISH Hair & Metabolism™?

If you experience any of the following concerns, SWIISH Hair & Metabolism™ could be for you: 

  • Thinning hair
  • Postpartum hair loss
  • Brittle hair prone to snapping
  • Damaged hair caused by chemicals or hair equipment
  • Sluggish metabolism

Will this product cause hair growth on any other body parts?

No. This product was designed to target hair growth on your head specifically. In the human body, hair grows from hair follicles. Each follicle goes through three phases of growth that can vary depending on the area of the body the hair is growing from (e.g. legs, underarms, etc.). These phases are anagen, catagen and telogen. The reason the hairs on our head can grow much longer than the other hairs is because of how these phases change on different parts of the body. SWIISH Hair & Metabolism won’t affect these phases on those other areas of the body, only the head.

Will using SWIISH Hair & Metabolism™ reverse my laser hair removal?

No. The light energy utilised in laser hair removal is converted to heat to damage hair follicles, meaning the hair should not be able to grow back.

What if I struggle to take capsules/tablets?

You can open the capsule and empty its powdered contents into your drink of choice to consume.

What if I forget to take SWIISH Hair & Metabolism™ one day, do I double the dose the next day?

No. If you miss a day, we do not recommend you double the dose the following day, due to the total daily intake of Iodine being limited.

What makes this product unique?

The seaweed used (Ascophyllum nodosum) is incredibly high quality and works to protect its key polyphenols during digestion, allowing for better absorption in the small intestine where these polyphenols are required for supporting blood sugar (and subsequent energy) management. This product has also been extensively researched to ensure that the specific concentrated quantities of each vitamin and mineral used is at the required level for maximum support. 

How do I know if my metabolism isn’t functioning at its peak?

Metabolic rate varies from person to person and can reduce depending on age, underlying medical conditions, extreme dieting, hormones, etc. It is important to consult with your healthcare practitioner to assess your individual metabolic function, however, some signs that your metabolism may be functioning slower than normal are: 

  • Fatigue & lethargy
  • Weight changes
  • Hair loss
  • Mood changes
  • Dry or troubled skin
  • Brittle or weak nails
  • Cognitive difficulty
  • Sugar cravings

How long will it take for my metabolism to improve? 

Results will vary from person to person as every individual is different, however, metabolism may improve after 30-60 days with consistent daily supplementation.

I noticed my urine changed colour – it looks fluorescent, is this normal?

Yes! This is absolutely normal. When you take any B Vitamins the pigment of the actual B Vitamin can cause a change in your urine as it is metabolised and passes through the body.

Can men and women take this product?

Yes, absolutely! 

Can I have it while pregnant or breastfeeding?

We don’t recommend SWIISH Hair & Metabolism during pregnancy or breastfeeding. 

Can I take it with other medications?

SWIISH Hair & Metabolism™ is all-natural and contains nothing artificial, however, we are unable to provide exact advice on whether it is safe to consume whilst taking other specific medications. As everyone’s situation is different, we recommend that you check with your healthcare professional to see if this supplement would be beneficial for you. Please refer to the nutritional information & ingredients list. 

Can I take this product to help with my thyroid condition? 

SWIISH Hair & Metabolism™ supports healthy thyroid gland function and healthy thyroid hormones. But where a thyroid condition exists, we suggest seeking medical advice. 

Is this product vegan?

SWIISH Hair & Metabolism™ is 100% vegan. However, we do advise people with a fish and/or crustacean (shellfish) allergy to consider that the seaweed utilised in this product may have come into contact with fish and/or crustaceans in the sea.
