Entia Biosciences Study Achieves Improved Hair & Nail Health
Sherwood, Oregon / April 17, 2014 / Entia Biosciences, Inc. (OTCQB: ERGO), an authority on the clinical effects of oxidative stress and free radical reactions working in the areas of biotechnology and nutrigenomics, today announced the results of its pilot three-month clinical research study on the effectiveness of its GROH® Ergo Boost Hair and Scalp Conditioning Treatment and Daily Replenishing Supplements.
“We are excited and encouraged by the favorable results seen in our three-month pilot clinical research study on the effectiveness of our GROH® product lines,” said Devin Andres, President of Entia Biosciences Inc.’s Total Nutraceutical Solutions subsidiary. “Subjects reported not only a targeted decrease in hair loss, faster hair growth, increased thickness, less breakage, and increased volume, but a number of other healthy side effects including a natural increase in energy.”
Subjects were instructed to take GROH® supplements daily and apply the ErgoBoost Treatment to their hair and scalp. The subjects immediately reported softer, shinier, and smoother hair, regardless of baseline conditions. After six weeks, participants also reported a decrease in hair loss and an increase in thickness and volume. After 90 days, subjects reported decreased hair loss (88%), faster hair growth (75%), increased hair thickness (75%), decreased hair breakage (100%), and increased hair volume (93.5%).
In the study, blood samples were collected from subjects at baseline (September) and after three months (December) to assess levels of Vitamin D2 and D-total. Test results showed that the vitamin D2 levels doubled in greater than 85% of the subjects and all participants had a significant increase in total vitamin D. Additional findings from the study included improvements in skin appearance, nail strength, and nail growth, strongly suggestive that the nutrients in the GROH® product line also have the potential to improve overall health of the body. Most subjects also reported a natural increase in energy.
A separate study published in the Journal of Cosmetics by Dr. Irena Eris and faculty at the University of Warsaw showed that L-Ergothioneine may protect skin cells against UV-induced damage. The antioxidant was shown to reduce the oxidative stress on mtDNA from ultra-violet radiation by enhancing the level of reduced glutathione to protect against mtDNA “common deletion”. As a result, L-Ergothioneine could also become a potent skin care and anti-photoaging ingredient.
GROH® Daily Replenishing Supplements contain the unique bionutrients, L-Ergothioneine and Vitamin D2, which are found in high concentrations in specialty mushrooms and restore critical nutrient levels in the body. The company aims to position its GROH® product lines in the $50 billion hair and spa industry where many of the largest operators are seeking breakthrough products and services to differentiate their products in the competitive market.
Backed by scientific innovation and medical research, all GROH® products and services contain the powerful master antioxidant L-Ergothioneine, naturally amplified Vitamin D2, and other important micronutrients and co-factors found in plants and whole foods. These nutrients are unlocked, enhanced, and formulated into Ergo Boost Complex, which works with the body's biological systems to fulfill the everyday nutritional needs that our modern lifestyles fail to provide. With regular use, the GROH® Ergo Boost product line has the potential to balance cellular function and promote thicker, fuller hair and lashes, healthier skin, and increased nail strength and growth.
