Most of us do not look forward to our hair turning gray. Whether it is the gray hair we frantically "pluck" at first sighting or the numerous gray hairs framing our face, lining our part, or just scattered throughout our hair...we want it out! Trips to the beauty salon, or the hair care section, could be a fad of the past. The solution to no more gray hair may be within our control.
Catalase, long known for its vital role in the body's overall health, has been linked with our hair's natural graying process. The role of Catalase, found in all living organisms, is to break down hydrogen peroxide into water and oxygen. This breakdown is essential to prevent damage to the body, thus helping the body's natural defenses.
As we age, the body's production of Catalase begins to deplete. While this depletion affects the entire body, studies are finding this breakdown is associated with our hair losing its color and turning gray. Through out life, our hair cells produce small amounts of hydrogen peroxide. An adequate level of Catalase within the hair follicle breaks this down to water and oxygen, thus allowing the hair follicle to stay healthy and maintain its color. With the aging process, Catalase levels begin to decrease; unfortunately, hydrogen peroxide continues to build up within the hair follicle. This elevation, combined with the depletion of Catalase, brings about a chain reaction. Research indicates the enzymes MSR A and B also assist in the breakdown of hydrogen peroxide within the hair follicle. As Catalase decreases, the enzymes MSR A and B alone cannot repair the damage. Without sufficient levels of Catalase, hydrogen peroxide continues to increase within the hair follicle. As hydrogen peroxide begins to "bleach" the hair color, the hair follicle cannot produce enough melanin (hair color pigment) to overcome this increase. Because our "natural defense" against hydrogen peroxide decreases with age, our hair is actually bleached from the inside out.
Research has found a Catalase enzyme supplement can help restore and build-up the levels of Catalase depleted with the aging process. While hair color also depends on the enzymes MSR A and B, it is clear the significant role Catalase plays in the "balance" of the hair follicle's ability to sustain its color. With increased Catalase levels, the body's natural ability to restore and maintain hair color could be rejuvenated and possibly maintained for years.
