Boost your hair growth by 25%

A recent study suggests that cinnamic acid, a compound naturally found in cinnamon bark, may help to stimulate hair growth and provide relief to those suffering from alopecia. Cinnamic acid is a type of antioxidant phytochemical that has protective effects against certain diseases, such as diabetes.

Chinese cinnamon has been found to have pain-relieving properties against colds, as well as shoulder, back, and joint pain.

It has recently been used in cosmetics for its anti-aging effects. Studies have shown that cinnamic acid, present in Chinese cinnamon, can promote the expression of oxytocin receptors, which in turn can enhance skin elasticity.

However, oxytocin molecules are too large and break down too quickly to be absorbed by human skin. Based on this research, a team from Japan hypothesized that cinnamic acid, being a smaller molecule, might be able to activate oxytocin and promote hair growth.

The study’s findings were recently published in Scientific Reports. In order to assess cinnamic acid’s effects on hair growth, the research team conducted experiments in which they grew human hair in cultures, exposing different hair follicles to varying amounts of cinnamic acid.

They noticed that hair follicles exposed to the treatment produced longer hair shafts. Specifically, follicloids (hair follicles grown in a culture from cells) which were exposed to cinnamic acid showed a 1.25-fold increase in the length of the shaft-like structures.

The researchers noted that this growth was nearly identical to the results of a previous study involving oxytocin, in which follicles grew 1.30-fold.

“These promising results may be useful for developing hair growth-promoting products targeting oxytocin,” Junji Fukuda, the paper’s corresponding author and a professor at the Faculty of Engineering at Yokohama National University in Japan, said in a news release.
