SCIENCE INVESTIGATORY PROJECT- PROPOSAL
EXTRACT ABELMOSCHUS ESCULENTUS FOR ALOPECIA ANDROGENETICA OR BALDNESS
Baldness was found as a typical problem now a day. Baldness or Alopecia Androgenetica is a hair loss condition considered an autoimmune disease, in which the immune system, which is designed to protect the body from foreign invaders such as viruses and bacteria, mistakenly attacks the hair follicles, the tiny cup-shaped structures from which hairs grow. This can lead to hair problems and hair loss on the scalp and elsewhere. If you have a close family member with the disease, your risk of developing it is slightly increased. If your family member lost his or her first patch of hair before age 30, the risk to other family members is greater. Overall, one in five people with the disease has a family member who has it as well. In alopecia, immune system cells called white blood cells attack the rapidly growing cells in the hair follicles that make the hair. The affected hair follicles become small and drastically slow down hair production. Fortunately, the stem cells that continually supply the follicle with new cells do not seem to be targeted. So the follicle always has the potential to regrow hair.
My friends were talking about the hair loss of their grand parents or also their parents and one of them said that if a young boy or girl got loss of his/her hair, what will they do or what treatment will they use?. Well, coincidentally, one of them thinks of what they are going to do to prevent or experience such a thing. This was when we got the idea of making an investigation on such a matter. We, researchers, being very curious themselves, tried to fill their curiosity. Trying to find out if natural or herbal plants can be an ingredient to create or turn it out as a great and best one to prevent hair loss or baldness. After a lot of inquiries and brain storming, we finally found how to execute the experiment with the aid of all our sources including the websites to derive to our conclusion. For millions of adults, male and female, hair loss is a serious concern. Prescription products are available that can help to cure hair loss or even aid in growing hair, but not without potentially harmful side effects. Luckily, there are a number of natural ways to stop hair loss and promote hair growth without resorting to harsh medicines.
Home remedies are becoming more and more popular each day as people seek alternative means to cure or relief their health issues. Many home remedies and natural cures or medicines can easily be made at home using natural ingredients such as herbs, vegetables, and fruits you can grow you or purchase at a local store. Listed below you will find articles relating to home remedies including aromatherapy, herbal medicines, Ayurvedic, and other natural cures used for everyday health problems
A.) Background of the study
Okra, (Hibiscus, or Abelmoschus, esculentus), herbaceous, hairy, annual plant of the mallow family (Malvaceae). It is native to the tropics of the Eastern Hemisphere and is widely cultivated or naturalized in the tropics and subtropics of the Western Hemisphere for its edible fruit. The leaves are heart-shaped and three- to five-lobed; the flowers are yellow with a crimson centre. The fruit or pod, hairy at the base, is a tapering, 10-angled capsule, 10–25 cm (4–10 inches) in length (except in the dwarf varieties), that contains numerous oval, dark-coloured seeds. Only the tender, unripe fruit is eaten. It may be prepared like asparagus, sauteed, or pickled, and it is also an ingredient in various stews and in the gumbos of the southern United States; the large amount of mucilage (gelatinous substance) it contains makes it useful as a thickener for broths and soups. The fruit is grown on a large scale in the vicinity of Istanbul. In some countries the seeds are...
