Newsletter: How to Grow Long Eye Lashes
Today we are going to discuss the two most important nutritional factors needed to grow your eyelashes, in order to make them longer, stronger, and thicker. We are going to discuss this from an internal and a topical standpoint.
Per eyelid, you have about 100 – 200 hair follicles, and the hairs that grow out of your eyelid go through two different phases. One, is a growth phase, and the other is a rest phase. When people either start losing their eyelashes, or when they become small and very thin, there is generally a problem with one of these two phases.
The mechanism of why someone would lose their eyelashes, is due to a deficiency of a very specific type of prostaglandin, called Prostaglandin F2alpha. A prostaglandin is a signaling molecule, similar to a hormone. It’s a message that travels through the body, which tells the body to do certain things. For example, if you are deficient in a certain prostaglandin, you can have all sorts of problems with growing hair, and inflammation. However, there are other prostaglandins, where if you have too much, it can cause a headache. For example, when you take aspirin, what you are doing is you are blocking certain types of prostaglandins, and that’s why aspirin works for headaches.
So, one of the medications that they use in order to grow eyelashes, has to do with enhancing this deficiency of this specific Prostaglandin F2alpha. However, we want to avoid medications when possible, as there can be side effects.
So there are actually two natural things that you can take in order to correct that Prostaglandin F2alpha deficiency, and regrow your eyelashes.
One is an acid called recinolic acid. Not only can it help correct that Prostaglandin deficiency, and help you regrow your eyelashes, but it can actually thicken the eyelashes, make them stronger, and help the eyelash texture so they have the perfect oil consistency. Recinolic Acid is found in Castor Oil, which we have in our glass jars ‘At-Cost for you today.
Castor oil is 90% Ricinoleic acid, which is a very special kind of unsaturated fat. It’s so beneficial for not only growing your eyelashes, but for so many other things. Your grand parents probably made sure that they always had it around the house.
As seen at the clinical study here, castor oil has ant-inflammatory and pain-reducing properties. Many people rub it in to their joints to help alleviate pain, sore muscles, and others use it to help alleviate menstrual cramps. It’s Anti-fungal and Anti-microbial, and it’s really good for your immune system. Therefore, some people put it on their psoriasis.
The Ricinoleic Acid in the castor oil can be used to moisturize skin, because they act as humectants, which retain moisture by preventing water loss through the outer layer of the skin. In fact, castor oil is used in cosmetics to promote hydration. Manufacturers often add it to products like lotions, makeup, and cleansers. You can also use this rich oil on its own as a natural alternative to store-bought moisturizers and lotions. However, castor oil is very thick, so some people mix it with other skin-friendly oils, like coconut oil, almond oil, or olive oil to make an ultra-hydrating moisturizer.
Castor Oil is also used as an anti-dandruff remedy. People love our Castor Oil, because it’s certified organic, unrefined, cold processed, and comes in a glass jar. It’s a very high-end Castor Oil. We want to use the Castor Oil topically for all of these remedies, including the eyelashes. It is safe to take internally in small amounts, but it’s generally used as a laxative that way. Some women use it to induce labor. Be sure to put a little bit on your skin first, just to make sure you are not allergic to it, before you put it on your eyelashes. Most people are not allergic.
On top of Ricinoleic Acid, the second component to correct that Prostaglandin F2alpha deficiency, is low and behold, Zinc. When you are zinc deficient, you can’t make this signaling molecule prostaglandin. Additionally, an eyelash is protein, and you need Zinc in order to create proteins. As I’ve stated many times, Zinc is involved in nearly every function and activity of the human anatomy. There have been quite a few reports, such as the study at the link here, on people taking zinc and helping to regrow their hair and specifically the eyelashes.
At the clinical study here, they fed mice aspirin, because it blocks those prostaglandins. They created the exact same effect as a Zinc deficiency, because the symptoms of a zinc deficiency, and a prostaglandin deficiency, were both the same.
So the two best things for the eye lashes are our Ionic Angstrom Zinc, and our Castor Oil. Use the castor oil topically, and take the zinc internally, and you have the great potential of growing, longer and thicker eyelashes.
