Fight Hair Loss with Pea Sprouts

February 20, 2013


AnaGain, based on organic pea sprouts, is said to fight hair loss.
Mibelle Biochemistry has launched AnaGain, an ingredient designed for hair care products to successfully fight hair loss. AnaGain, which is based on organic pea sprouts, has proven to clearly reactivate hair growth by directly targeting the dermal papilla cells that are key to the hair growth cycle, according to the company.

Thanks to its double action, AnaGain successfully boosts the expression of the noggin gene, which results in a shorter resting period—telogen phase—and it also enhances the expression of the fibroblast growth factor-7 gene. This, in turn, stimulates the proliferation of hair germ cells to grow hair, according to Mibelle.
