Mental health is just as important as physical health, yet it is not receiving the recognition and attention that it needs. October 10th is the official World Mental Health Day, recognised by the World Health Organization and the goal is to “raise awareness of mental health issues around the world and mobilising efforts in support of mental health”.* Research indicates that most people will suffer from a type of mental health issue at some stage in their lives. In fact, every sixth person in England suffers from a mental health related problem, and over 6,000 people die by suicide yearly.** Despite how widespread this issue is, there are still stigma and misconceptions surrounding the subject of mental health, and this day is the perfect occasion to discuss the impact that your mental well-being can have on your physical health.

Studies show that there is a strong connection between suffering from a mental illness and being physically ill. The Mental Health Foundation evaluates that depression can lead to a 67% increased risk of death from heart disease as well as a 50% increased risk of death from cancer.***

Anxiety and stress are some of the most prevalent and widespread mental health issues. Over 60% of women experience a hair growth disruption at some time in their lives, and scientific research indicates that one of the major causes of hair loss is stress. When you feel stressed, the body releases a hormone called cortisol, which can disrupt the Hair Growth Cycle and result in hair loss disorders such as Telogen Effluvium, Alopecia Areata and Trichotillomania.

Just as stress can cause hair loss, suffering from a hair growth disruption can also cause stress and other psychological issues. Many people become insecure about their appearance, which sometimes results in social anxiety or depression.

Thirty years of extensive research derives that a Proteoglycan Replacement Therapy is highly efficacious in the treatment of hair growth disruptions and can help to support and maintain a healthy Hair Growth Cycle for optimal appearance and strength. The leading hair oral supplement brand, Hair Growth+ inCLINIC with Marilex-P® takes a unique approach by prolonging the Anagen phase of the cycle, which means that the hair will have more time to grow and less time to fall out. All of Nourkrin®’s products are 100% drug-free, safe and natural.
