(Nutrition) 6 months ago

 

1. EGGS

  • If you've heard of biotin supplements for hair growth, eggs have a good amount of natural biotin!
  • Biotin is essential for production of keratin - the hair protein!
  • Protein is another ingredient important for hair health and eggs provide a lot per gram
  • Eggs also contain nutrients that your hair needs such as zinc and selenium

 

 

2. SPINACH

  • Spinach is loaded with minerals and sometimes a mineral deficiency is what causes hair loss
  • Folate, Iron, and Vitamins A and C will promote hair growth
  • Spinach contains sebum, which acts as a natural conditioner for hair
  • Omega-3 acids will keep your hair shiny and in tact

 

 

3. SALMON

  • Salmon is a great source of omega-3 fatty acids, a nutrient that the body can not make on its own!
  • Anti-inflammatory effects to keep you healthy
  • Omega-3 and omega-6 helps decrease hair loss and increase hair growth
  • The protein and Vitamin D3 will love your hair

 

 

4. AVOCADOS

  • You might notice a theme of healthy fats here!
  • Vitamin E is a nutrient that neutralizes free radicals and also protects your skin and scalp. Healthy hair follicles means healthy hair!
  • If you're deficient in the fatty acids omega-3 and omega-6 that are provided in avocados, you may be at risk for hair loss.

 

 

 

5. CINNAMON

  • Cinnamon helps to improve your blood circulation to bring more oxygen and nourishment to your brain and hair follicles
  • An easy ingredient to add to toast, coffee, oatmeal, etc to promote hair growth slow and steady

 

 

 

6. BERRIES

  • ...and other fruits! Vitamin C has been linked to an increased growth in women with thinning hair
  • The antioxidants in berries will help protect hair follicles from harmful molecules and oxidative stress
  • Try fruits that are high in the vitamin such as guava and Vitamin C

 

 

 

7. NUTS

  • Another great source of Vitamin E - one ounce satisfies 37% of your daily need!
  • Also a great source of those essential fatty acids which are absolutely necessary for hair growth and maintenance
  • Nuts can reduce inflammation that may be causing hair loss

 

 

 

8. OYSTERS

  • One of the best sources of zinc, a nutrient that supports the growth as well as the repair of hair
  • Taking zinc supplements can help reverse hair loss, but oysters have  a variety of health benefits as well

 

 

 

9. SOYBEANS

  • Spermidine, a compound in soybeans, is associated with hair growth
  • Helps increase the amount of time the hair follicle is in its best stage, the anagen stage
  • Also a great source of iron which many women are deficient in and is likely the reason for hair loss
