Marine Glycogen – Nuggela & Sulé
Glycoenergizer Hair (Marine Glycogen) It is a high purified glucose-based active ingredient, extracted from the opening and closing membrane of the mollusk shell. One of nature’s strongest muscles. Due to its homology with the glycogen of the epidermis and hair cells, the contribution of this active ingredient ensures the availability of energy in the active phase of growth of the hair follicle. In addition, it has an energizing and hair strengthening effect.
THE IMPORTANCE OF GLYCOGEN IN THE BODY
Glucose is the most important sugar in a cellular level and plays a very important role in the energy metabolism of cells. Glycogen is one of the main sources of energy for cellular activity and is found inside the cell.
THE IMPORTANCE OF GLYCOGEN FOR THE HAIR
Glycogen is both present and metabolized in the human hair follicle, especially by cells of the epithelial sheath. It is also the main source of energy necessary for protein synthesis during the hair growth process.
During this growth process, glycogen consumption is twice as fast. Therefore, the presence of glycogen in the epithelial sheath ensures the availability of energy in the active phase of hair growth.
- It strengthens the hair
- Provides more volume
- Stops hair loss
- Helps increase hair density
