Ginseng / Panax Ginseng
Ginseng is the root of plants in the genus Panax. The word Panax comes from the Greek word panakeia, which means ‘all healing’. Ginsenosides or ginseng saponins are the all-star bioactive component of ginseng that gives it medicinal benefits. There has been mounting evidence suggesting that ginsenosides promote hair growth and prevent hair loss. It is believed to increase the dermal cells on the scalp which, in turn, strengthens the follicles and roots of the hair. This not only encourages the new growth of strands but also prevents hair thinning and breakage. Its powerful properties also work to relieve stress, which is one of the common factors of hair fall. Last but not least, saponin is also an anti-bacterial compound that can get rid of dandruff and keep it from coming back. This ensures that your follicles remain clean and flake-free.
