Vitabiotics Tricologic Woman - 60 Tablets
Vitabiotics Tricologic Woman - the science behind a great looking head of hair. Wellwoman Tricologic® has been developed by experts in nutrition to nourish hair and maintain healthy hair follicles.
The changes which occur as we age, as well as an inadequate diet, stress, hair styling and lifestyle, can all impact hair condition, strength and growth.
Shedding of excess hair in women is different to that in men and can begin around the age of 30 and in some cases even as early as the 20s. It usually becomes noticeable around the age of 40, and may be even more noticeable after menopause. By the age of fifty, 50% of women will probably experience some degree of excess hair loss.
Healthy hair growth is related to many factors including:
- Age and genetic factors
- Hormonal influences
- Pregnancy and menopause
- Chemicals/colourants and physical damage
- Rapid weight loss
- Inadequate nutrition
- Nutrition and your hair
Having a healthy head of hair and a healthy scalp begins with the proper nutritional building blocks. The hair follicle is a highly active factory and metabolic requirements for oxygen, energy and protein synthesis must be met to maintain healthy hair. A reduction of nutrients in the diet or a reduction of blood supply to the scalp can threaten the delivery of adequate oxygen, glucose and essential nutrients which can have a negative impact on the body’s ability to assimilate nutrients required to maintain normal follicle metabolism and hair growth. Supplementation can therefore play an important role in safeguarding an individual’s nutritional intake.
- How does Wellwoman Tricologic® work?
Wellwoman Tricologic® has been scientifically formulated to provide a complete spectrum of 26 nutrients, including biomarine collagen, amino acids and special plant derived nutrients, which play a role in scalp health and hair follicle metabolism. The bio-active nutrients of Wellwoman Tricologic® are delivered via the blood stream directly to the hair roots for maximum benefit.
- Specialist nutrients in Tricologic® to help nourish Hair Follicles
Wellwoman contains VoluminTM, an exclusive proprietary combination of biomarine extracts, colloidal silica and natural antioxidants specifically designed to nourish hair follicles, helping to keep hair looking thick and healthy.
- The exclusive VoluminTM formula includes:
+ Hydrocollamer (hydrolysed marine collagen) - providing the body with essential amino acids to help produce and support collagen which is a vital protein for our whole body, including hair.
+ Silicon - the third most abundant trace element of the human body, important in the structure of hair.
+ Grape Seed Extract - containing powerful antioxidants to promote a healthy circulation and help protect cells from the damaging effects of free radicals, which can lead to premature ageing of the hair.
+ Acerola Cherry Extract - one of the richest natural sources of vitamin C. A natural anti-oxidant that acts in protecting fatty acids and cells against the damaging effect of free radicals, that can cause the break down of cells.
- High Grade Collagen to support Hair structure
The Hydrocollamer (Hydrolysed Collagen HCP) used in Wellwoman Tricologic® is a form of the protein collagen which is a rich source of the amino acids glycine, L-proline and L-hydroxyproline.
Collagen is the most abundant form of natural protein found in the body and it makes up the primary support structure of the hair. It is not commonly known that it gives hair strength plus an inherent ability to retain moisture. After around 25 years of age, levels of collagen begin to decrease at a rate of approximately 1.5% a year, such changes are thought to contribute towards the hair becoming thinner and more dull.
Also included in the advanced Tricologic® formulation is the amino acid L-Cystine, which may assist in maintaining hair strength.
- Scalp health
Both Biotin and Niacin play key roles in scalp health. Biotin is important through its action on the metabolism of scalp oils and may prevent the greying. Niacin helps maintain blood circulation within the scalp and help support the metabolism of help hair follicles.
Wellwoman Tricologic® also contains a number of other nutrients important to scalp and hair health including:
+ L-Lysine - an essential amino acid which has been shown to improve scalp hair growth in individuals suffering from hair loss.
+ Inositol – a constituent of lecithin in cell membranes. This is a growth factor for rapidly dividing cells such as hair follicles keratinocytes. Inositol deficiency has been shown to contribute to excess hair shredding.
+ Vitamin D3– Adequate Vitamin D is essential for hair health.
+ Antioxidant vitamin E– help to protect against the damaging effects of free radicals, which can lead to premature ageing. Vitamin E may help support skin repair.
+ B-vitamin complex - essential in the health and growth of rapidly dividing cells such as those present in the hair follicle
+ Pantothenic acid – essential for healthy hair growth and the maintenance of hair pigmentation.
+ Iodine – plays a role in metabolism and required for hair growth to proceed at optimal levels.
+ Essential minerals - including magnesium, iron, zinc, manganese, copper, chromium and selenium serve as co-factors which support healthy hair follicle and cellular metabolism as well as hair structure. A lack of these in the diet can influence hair growth hair and scalp condition.

There is no maximum length of time over which Wellwoman Tricologic® tablets may be used. A regular intake is recommended.
- Some Recommended Daily Allowance (RDA) levels are above 100%, is this safe?
Certain vitamins are very safe at levels tens or even hundreds of times the RDA, whereas for others the safety level is much closer to the RDA. For this reason every vitamin and mineral needs to considered on an individual basis in terms of its upper safe level.
The Recommended Daily Allowance (RDA) is the amount of a vitamin or mineral which has been calculated to help prevent basic deficiency states in the general population. However, certain vitamins and minerals at optimal levels, above the RDA, have consistently been shown to have positive benefits in specific areas of health. This is why some Vitabiotics formulas have certain nutrient levels greater than 100% RDA.
All Vitabiotics products has been developed using the latest research and contain effective levels of vitamins and minerals, while avoiding any excessive amounts, in accordance with official upper safe limits for vitamins and minerals.
Vitabiotics avoids ‘mega dose’ levels of isolated nutrients and instead we have always stressed the importance of safe, moderate and sensible levels of vitamins and minerals, carefully balanced to maximise their combined effect; an approach which has been supported by many experts and researchers over the years.
