Apoptosis is a nonpathological process of cellular death brought on by a wide array of conditions, one of which is mitochondrial insufficiency. A mosaic of respiratory chain deficiencies in a subset of cells in various tissues (e.g., heart, skeletal muscle, colonic crypts, neurons) is typically found in aged humans (Bratic 2010). Because apoptosis plays such a critical role in the hair cycle (catagen) and apoptosis can be triggered by a variety of inflammatory events, it is deemed an important biological process in the maintenance of healthy hair. Ensuring proper cellular respiration through the presence of antioxidant and anti-inflammatory compounds at all levels of the body, including the skin and its hair follicles, is prudent
