Goodbye Grey is a dietary supplement that promises to banish grey hair forever. That’s an impressive clam to make.
It sounds a little too good to be true, but many of the things we all take for granted these days would have sounded too good to be true ten years ago, so let’s try and keep an open mind for now.
Goodbye Grey is manufactured in the UK by Bauer Nutrition. The company produces a range of health and fitness supplements. Some of them promise to support weight loss and sports and fitness goals, while others—Goodbye Grey included—are probably best classed as health and beauty products.
How do the Ingredients Stack up Against the Claims?
It would appear that Bauer can be congratulated again, because this appears to quite an impressive mix. Although some of the ingredients, such as nettle root extract, are more reliant on their reputation for preventing greying of the hair than on clinical proof, the inclusion of many of the other ingredients can be validated by scientific evidence.
Bauer’s Goodbye Grey sales page highlights their use of catalase and it is an interesting inclusion. Catalase is an enzyme found in nearly all living organisms that are exposed to oxygen. It is known to offer protection against oxidative damage and is often used in food wrappers to prevent food from oxidizing. Catalase is also now increasingly found in health and beauty products, and recent scientific studies show that low levels of the enzyme may be a contributing factor to the greying of human hair, so any supplement that can increase the body’s store of the enzyme is not without merit.
Scientific study also shows t several vitamins and minerals also have an important role to play in keeping the hair healthy, and if the daily requirement for them is not met it can result in premature grey hair.
Hair receives its color from a substance called melanin, and the body cannot manufacture melanin unless it receives a sufficient quantity of vitamin B6, so the vitamin is crucial to colourful hair.
A lack of folic acid can prevent the body from producing a sufficient quantity of the important genetic materials, DNA and RNA. Both are required for the normal manufacturing a repair process of body cells (including those in the hair).
Several of the other ingredients have been proven to be likewise important to hair health, so, all in all, this appear to be an effective blend.

Goodbye Grey Side Effects and Health Issues
Bauer state their product is not recommended for use by pregnant or nursing mothers or people under 18. People who have known health issues should consult their doctor before use.
The Bottom Line
Will Goodbye Grey really banish the grey forever? A few years ago the answer would have been a definite “no”. A lot of time and money has been spent on research since then and the processes that cause hair to turn grey are now understood better than ever before. Bad diet has been proven to contribute to early greying.
The relationship between oxidization and catalase is also clearer than it used to be and it is equally clear the scientists at Bauer Nutrition are well-versed in all these facts. Their blend reflects this and it seems likely that Goodbye Grey will do most, if not all, that they claim for it. The product is even backed by a generous 60 day money back guarantee, so it would appear that the consumer has nothing to lose but—hopefully—their unwanted grey hair.
