Wow, what a head of hair in this picture! I can’t wait to try out the suggestions in today’s post by guest blogger, Jenny Smith. She lists a gamut of foods which contain the necessary nutrients to grow thicker, shinier hair naturally, and also help prevent and cure premature hair loss.
Hair loss these days has become a regular disorder among men and women. Hair loss is generally caused by many factors including biological and non-biological. Recent statistics have shown factors like stress, mental pressure and, most of all, poor eating habits cause random hair loss.
A proper, healthy diet can solve premature hair loss and can evolve natural growth of hair. The vitamins and minerals found in certain foods provide essential nutrients which bring blood circulation to the scalp region and stimulate hair follicles.
Maintaining a healthy diet is a natural way to grow hair!
It is highly recommended to consume foods that have high amounts of vitamins and minerals. But when you’re already deficient in vitamins, high quality supplements can boost your levels. Vitamin C, B complex and minerals, like iron and lysine, are ideal for hair growth and good hair health.
Vitamin C is very essential for preventing hair breakage and damage. Vitamin B1 enhances the protein in the scalp region and is helpful for the thickness of the follicles. Vitamin E also helps to reduce pattern baldness among women. Other minerals, like magnesium and zinc, also prevent thinning of the hair.
Vegetables & Vitamins
It is considered best to consume your vitamins through nutrient-rich foods to increase and maintain health. Certain foods, especially vegetables and fruits, provide useful ingredients which help maintain the supply of nutrients that prevent hair loss.
Here is a list of excellent food sources that contain nutrients which assist in growing thicker, shinier hair:
- Vitamin C is mainly found in most berries, melon, citrus fruits like oranges and lemons, potatoes, cabbage, broccoli, spinach and kale.
- The mineral iron is found in most fish and in vegetables like broccoli, spinach and artichokes.
- A high amount of magnesium is present in beans, nuts, artichokes, spinach, broccoli and fish.
- Avocado, sunflower seeds, polyunsaturated plant oils such as wheat germ oil, corn oil and fish oil provide a huge source of vitamin E.
- Mushroom, fish and chicken contain niacin.
- A large amount of vitamin B1 is found in spinach, watermelon, soy milk and tomatoes.
- Red meat, eggs, soybeans, fish and cheese and legumes are sources for lysine.
- Yogurt, dark green leafy vegetables, lentils, cheese and lean proteins, like poultry, are common source of zinc.
Daily consumption of these foods and vegetables can help grow hair naturally. These foods consist of natural ingredients that can help solve hair loss problems and be a good substitute to expensive hair loss treatments.
