PRODUCT PROFILE

Ingredient stimulates hair growth and fights hair loss
AnaGain is based on an extract of pea sprouts. Many health benefits are attributed to pulses, including peas. Pulses belong to the family of fabaceae and are thus rich in isoflavones, a class of polyphenolic secondary plant metabolites. Isoflavones are known to act as phytoestrogens or to exert antioxidant activity.
