Science Behind JSHealth Vitamins
Kelp is a sea vegetable that absorbs minerals from ocean water and is an amazing natural source of iodine. Iodine is a trace element that is vital for many important functions of the body. The JSHealth Vitamins contain iodine from two high purity kelp materials that:
- Helps to restore hair strength and volume
- Regulates energy
- Regulates metabolism
- Assists in maintenance for wellbeing
- Iodine is essential for the manufacture of the thyroid hormones T3 and T4, which regulate basal metabolism which supports energy production throughout the body.
Zinc is an essential trace mineral that helps to:
- Maintain normal healthy hair
- Maintain healthy skin and nails
- Provide nutritional support for the maintenance of healthy sperm
- Support a healthy pregnancy

- Kelp contains fucoidan – which naturally occurs in the cell walls of seaweed – that is known to promote growth factors specifically connected with the hair cycle12
- In a clinical study, researchers found that a supplement containing seaweed extracts helped to prevent hair loss and promoted scalp health.3
- Marine polyphenols have been shown to have promoting effects on hair growth when applied topically.4
- Fucoidan and marine polyphenols are compounds that have a diverse range of benefits in regard to general health, antioxidants, UV protection, and anti-inflammation, which is known to promote healthy hair and nails.
Research shows that both fucoidan and marine polyphenols offer benefits in hair growth and maintenance:
- Fucoidan is known to promote growth factors specifically connected with the hair cycle. Research has found that the structural and anionic characteristics of fucoidan are similar to heparin, which stimulates the production of hepatocyte growth factors – commonly known as ‘scatter factors’. These growth factors play a key role in tissue regeneration. 1,2

- Marine polyphenols have been shown to have promoting effects on hair growth when applied topically. 5
- In addition to the specific benefits of fucoidan and marine polyphenols on hair growth and maintenance, these compounds also have a diverse range of benefits in general health, antioxidants, UV protection, and anti-inflammation, which is known to promote healthy hair and nails.
