Pilexil in capsules

Pilexil capsules are a polyvitaminic supplement composed of several vitamins of group B, zinc, iron, magnesium, L-cystine, Serrenoa Serrulata and vitamins H, C and E.

Vitamin B compounds help cells in the skin tissue, stopping the damage caused by oxidative stress, which facilitates the process of hair regeneration.

The Zinc mixed with the serrulase Serrulata acts directly on the enzyme responsible for hair loss, thus helping to slow down its fall.

The classic version of Pilexil does not contain Serrenoa Serrulata.

The synthesis of proteins in the hair is favored by magnesium.

Iron helps the proliferation and growth of hair from its root, and in turn to the nutrition of it.

L-cystine is an amino acid found in both the nails and the hair, and its deficit is related to the weakness of the nails and hair, so this component helps to strengthen them.

Vitamin E induces the repair of damaged cells, achieving greater nutrition in the hair and nails, as well as the regeneration of damaged tissues.
