Just like healthy, glowy skin starts from the inside out, so does hair wellness. You can do all the recommended things on the outside to help keep your hair thick and shiny, but that’s only one part of the equation. Enter: hair supplements. They’re that extra boost your hair needs to look its best and they pair well with topical solutions like our hair, lash, and brow serums. To celebrate the debut of our brand new GRO Biotin Gummies and GRO+ Advanced Hair Care Gummies, we’re sharing seven reasons why you should take hair supplements to promote hair growth from the inside out. Your hair will thank you later.
1. Stimulate Keratin Production
One of the main ingredients in both our new hair gummies is biotin, also known as B7. Biotin is an essential nutrient our bodies need and thinning hair is often a sign of a biotin deficiency. Not only is it known to stimulate keratin production which leads to hair and nail growth, it also helps turn the food you eat into energy.
2. Increase Cell Production
Our hair gummies also contain folic acid (vitamin B9), which helps promotes healthy cell growth including the cells found in your hair and nails. B vitamins in general move oxygen and other nutrients to your scalp to help with hair growth.
3. Maintain Healthy Hair Tissue
Zinc, another ingredient found in our hair gummies, helps with hair tissue growth and repair. It also plays a role in keeping the oil glands around your hair follicles working in tip top shape.

4. Boost Collagen Production and Keep Scalp Moisturized
There’s a reason why mom always told you to take your vitamins. They’re good for you and your hair especially vitamins A, C, E, which are found in our hair gummies. Vitamin A is needed for hair growth and to keep your scalp nice and moisturized. Vitamin C is needed to produce collagen and prevent hair from aging. And vitamin E is an antioxidant that prevents oxidative stress and boosts hair growth.
So what if you're trying to make the choice between biotin versus collagen? First off, if you're vegan or vegetarian then collagen is not an option. Next, look into the benefits of each to figure out which supplement better aligns with your goals. If gorgeous hair is your goal, then try a hair vitamin designed for that exact purpose.

5. Relieve Stress
Yes, really. Stress is often a cause of hair loss and our new Gro+ Advanced Hair Care Gummies can help your hair grow and reduce your stress levels by lowering the production of the stress hormone cortisol. The gummies are made with full-spectrum hemp oil extract and contain no THC (tetrahydrocannabinol). So no, they will not get you high.
6. Soothe Your Scalp and Stimulate Blood Circulation
CBD is also known to ease inflammation and in turn soothe your scalp and hair follicles. In addition, CBD also helps improve your blood flow including circulation around hair follicles, which has shown to promote hair growth.

7. Balance the Endocannabinoid System
The endocannabinoid system is a network of neurotransmitters and receptors that helps ensure all our body’s major systems are working well together. CBD has been shown to balance the endocannabinoid system and bring the body back to homeostasis. This makes the body’s cannabinoid receptors more likely to receive all of the growth-promoting ingredients in our hair gummies.
