When we think about the total health of your hair, we must look at a variety of factors. Part of it is what products you use to fortify it, part of it is what foods you are eating and part of it is the balance of vitamins and nutrients. Today, we’ll look at the three best vitamins to promote hair health.
Vitamin D, often associated with bone health, is equally important to keep your hair strong. Unfortunately in many parts of the country, people have vitamin D deficiencies. The inactive form of vitamin D, which is Vitamin D3, is converted by the body and regulates the hair follicle cycle. When people don’t consume enough vitamin D, they may experience hair loss. This is why it is vital that you get the recommended 15 micro-grams, especially if you are experiencing hair loss.
There are a few ways to get Vitamin D on a daily basis. One way is through natural sunlight. This is easy on the sunny days in San Diego. If that isn’t enough, you can also utilize a vitamin D3 supplement. Also consider trying vitamin D rich foods.
Collagen, one of the proteins that helps strengthen and grow hair, is aided in development by vitamin C. Vitamin C foods include citrus fruits like oranges, pineapples, and kiwis, as well as strawberries and vegetables like red peppers. Outside of fruit, you can use vitamin C supplements.
Two types of vitamin B help people achieve healthier hair, these are vitamin B6 and B12. That’s because they help messenger red blood cells deliver nutrients to the strands of hair. When you lack these vitamins, this process could slow hair growth. It is recommended you receive 2 to 4 micro-grams of B12. Think about eating foods like leafy greens, avocados, whole grains and meats like fish and chicken.
