Hi Guys, great walk so far and well done on spreading the word for the rhinos. Yesterday I deposited into the GRAA account for your project a R500 donation,that is one days salary from me as a freelance field guide working in the wildlife tourism industry. I CHALLENGE ALL OTHER FIELD GUIDES to do the same, we do our bit promoting [...]
Did you know that Rhinos use their horns to intimidate their opponents? Any activist that fights for Rhino’s rights and against Rhino poaching knows that Rhinos use their horns also for defense, to dig for food and even to guide baby Rhinos.
The horns of these wonderful creatures are actually made of keratin. Keratin is, according to this article, a family of proteins that we can also find in our hair, nails and skin. But this substance is also found in the claws, horns, hooves and nails of numerous mammals.
Since keratin is the key structural component of our hair, perhaps you may think that if we do not take enough protein from our nutrition, our hair will become weaker. This is true. Moreover, protein deficiency will lead to loss of hair because the body will enter into conservation mode and, besides your hair loss, your nails will also become brittle, more fragile and weak.
Hair loss is a problem that affects many people worldwide, but protein deficiency is not the number one cause that can make people lose their hair. In most cases of hair loss, the main culprit is a hormone called Dihydrotestosterone and the genetically transmitted sensitivity of follicles to Dihydrotestosterone.
Unlike humans, Rhinos and other mammals are not affected by protein deficiency, or, at least, not like people do. Rhinos do not lose their horns because of protein deficiency. They have a healthy nutrition and they are certainly not bombarded like us by junk food, snacks and other unhealthy eating practices that harm our health.
Because we do not take from food the nutrients that our bodies need, we have to supplement our nutrition and take pills and capsules with vitamins, minerals and other substances that help us maintain or restore our health. Provillus has been developed to stop hair loss and to encourage the regrowth of healthy hair in women and men affected at some point by hair loss.
The type of hair loss that affects most men is called male pattern baldness or androgenic alopecia. It is caused by DHT and when it occurs, men experience a progressive shedding of the hair follicles, which grow thinner, finer and shorter. Some follicles even stop growing hairs, the hairline recedes and temples and crown remain without hair.
On the other hand, women are affected by the type of alopecia called female pattern baldness. DHT causes this type of hair loss in women, but it does not manifest like in men, because women experience a general thinning of their hair from the entire scalp. However, they do not remain completely without hair.
These are the most common cases of hair loss that affect humans. Supplementing with Provillus will block the production of DHT, hence stopping the hair loss, while the ingredients contained will also stimulate the regrowth of healthy hair.
The reason why Rhinos lose their horns is not protein deficiency, but it is the cruelty and greed of people. The horns will grow back, but how can a Rhino survive without its horn?
