Brief Summary

The results of this study showed that the administration of Power Gummies: hair and nail vitamin was safe and effective in hair fall reduction, accelerated hair growth, strengthening of hair with overall hair and scalp health improvement in healthy females and males in 90 days.

The results showed a sig­nificant increase in the hair density, number of the terminal, vellus hair counts at 90 days in a gradual way.

There was an increase in terminal hair count from baseline to day 90. There was an increase in vellus hair count, it is possible that vellus hair get converted in terminal hair to improve the hair density.

The beneficial effects of Power Gummies were observed in both male and female hence it’s an efficacious product for both genders.

Power Gummies presented excellent compliance and tolerability with no adverse events related to its long term consumption.

These measurements were accompanied by significant and progres­sive visible clinical improvement in hair growth and hair quality for the treatment group, as determined by the investi­gator.

These outcomes demonstrated a steady improvement from baseline to day 90, suggesting that improve­ment may progress with continued treatment. There was also a strong trend in reducing hair breakage and improving hair density as well as hair diameter hence making hairs stronger and may improve hair length as well.

The hair with the consumption of Power Gummies was less brittle and strong from roots that there was decreased hair fall in the hair comb and wash test. It is suggestive of the improved strength of the hair.

There was satisfactory around 10% in female and 5% in male the enhanced growth rate of nails.

It was observed from the study that there was improved satisfaction through augmented stronger and longer nails in subjects.
