The best food for hair growth

  1. 1. The Best Food for Hair Growth – How to Make Your Hair Grow Faster! You have hundreds of thousands of hairs growing all over your body. These are made from very fast growing cells - each of which needs nutritional support to grow. Hairs are not vital organs or tissue. This means your body does not prioritize their nutritional needs. Because hair is expendable, poor nutrition will usually show up first in the form of excessive hair loss. Nutrition alone can be the cause of thinning hair. If you are experiencing hair loss, it is time to focus on food for hair growth. Weight-loss diets are designed to restrict nutrients. Women have been led to believe a ‘healthy diet’ consists of fruits, vegetables and salads with fewer calories comprised of protein and fats. This might be great for losing weight, but it provides very little food for hair growth. . Your hair cells need a balance of proteins, complex carbohydrates, iron, vitamins and minerals to function at their best. Protein Is the Ultimate Food for Faster Hair Growth If you are not consuming enough protein in your diet, your hair is likely to become dry, brittle and weak. Hair is made of protein, so ensuring you have enough protein in your diet is crucial for making hair strong and healthy. Extremely low protein diets may result in hair loss. Choose turkey, fish, chicken, dairy products and eggs along with vegetarian sources such as nuts and legumes.
  2. 2. Vitamins Provide Nutritional Support Vitamin C – Is an antioxidant and helps in the production of collagen, which strengthens the capillaries that supply the hair shafts. It also promotes the absorption of iron. Great sources are papaya, blackcurrants, blueberries, broccoli, guava, kiwi fruits, oranges, strawberries and sweet potatoes. Vitamin A - Is needed by the body to make sebum. Sebum - an oily substance created by our hairs sebaceous glands. Sebum provides a natural conditioner for a healthy scalp, so without it you would likely experience an itchy scalp and dry hair. Good sources of vitamin A are animal products and orange/yellow colored vegetables - carrots, pumpkins and sweet potatoes. Vitamin E – Provides protection for your hair. The sun can damage hair just like it can damage skin. Nuts are nutritional powerhouses, providing zinc and selenium as well, so try to include them as part of a balanced diet. Biotin for Hair Growth – is part of the B- complex vitamin group. Too little biotin can cause brittle hair and may lead to hair loss. Include biotin rich foods such as whole grains, liver, egg yolk, soy flour and yeast. Minerals Provide Additional Support Iron - The hair follicle and root are fed by a nutrient rich blood supply. Iron is an especially important mineral for hair growth. Iron deficiency is a major cause of hair loss around the world. When iron levels fall below a certain point, the nutrient supply to the follicle is disrupted. This affects the hair growth cycle with many serious consequences including hair thinning, shedding and pattern balding. Animal products such as red meat, chicken and fish provide iron in a form readily available to the body. Vegetarians can raise their iron stores by including lentils, spinach and other leafy green vegetables such as broccoli, kale and salad greens.
  3. 3. Zinc - A lack of zinc can lead to hair loss and a dry, flaky scalp. Fortified cereals and whole grains are a good source of zinc along with oysters, beef and eggs. Selenium – Enhances your immune system. It functions as an antioxidant helping to rid your body of harmful effects from the sun and the environment. It supports your body's ability to maintain hair growth. Pork, beef, turkey, chicken, fish, shellfish, and eggs are good sources of selenium. Omega-3 Fatty Acids Can Only Be Obtained From the Diet There are certain nutrients that the body cannot make for itself and must be obtained in the diet. Omega-3 fatty acids fall into this category. They are found in the cells that line the scalp and also provide the oils that keep the scalp and hair hydrated. Choose oily fish such as salmon, herring, sardines, trout and mackerel and plant sources including avocado, pumpkin seeds and walnuts. Frequently Asked Questions: QUESTION - Should my diet include Biotin for Hair Growth? ANSWER. Biotin is one of the B-Complex vitamins. Too little biotin can cause brittle hair and may lead to hair loss. Include biotin rich foods such as whole grains, liver, egg yolk, soy flour and yeast. QUESTION - Why do women lose their hair? ANSWER - In females, 45% of hair loss cases are triggered by genetic factors. The predictable pattern of genetic hair loss in women is called female pattern baldness. The remaining 55% of women who experience hair loss need to explore and address lifestyle factors first – diet and nutrition, physical stress, and emotional stress.
