Progressive Health's Callumae - Product Review  Hot

 

Description

Progressive Health’s Callumae is an innovative, all-natural formula designed specifically for vitiligo sufferers. This breakthrough supplement contains a synergistic blend of nutrients such as picorrhiza, khellin, L-phenylalanine and gingko biloba and vitamins B12, B6 and folic acid. Whether used alone or in combination with conventional vitiligo treatment, Callumae works to slow the progression of vitiligo and support healthy skin pigmentation and immune function.

Vitiligo is a skin disease characterized by progressively widening patches of depigmented (white) skin. These white skin patches are associated with the destruction of melanocytes, specialized cells responsible for skin pigmentation (color). Although the cause has yet to be determined, several theories exist including an autoimmune destruction of melanocytes, genetic susceptibility, or exposure to certain chemicals.

Research indicates that vitamins B6, B12 and Folic Acid are abnormally low in most vitiligo patients. Studies suggest that supplementing with these vitamins can improve skin pigmentation, especially when combined with UV therapy or sun exposure. Furthermore, preliminary trials have found that supplementation with the medicinal plants picorrhiza, khellin (an extract from Ammi visnaga) and gingko biloba may be useful in repigmenting the skin of people with vitiligo.

Clinical research suggests that supplementation with the amino acid L-phenylalanine (LPA) produces good results in both children and adults with vitiligo, especially when combined with light therapy and khellin. One double blind study, published in the European Journal of Dermatology, found that supplementation with L-phenylalanine and khellin in combination with UVA light therapy, resulted in repigmentation of up to 63 percent of vitiligo patients.
