Our HAIR is a great indicator of a person's general health. Research has shown that hair suffers significantly under the pressures of stress, environmental toxins, excess alcohol consumption, lack of sleep and poor eating habits. Like nails, because hair is growing all the time, it is important to maintain a healthy diet at all times to provide optimal quality of growth.
If your body has been suffering from stress and poor dietary habits, your hair might be reflecting its struggle to regenerate healthy cells and shining growth.
Aside from increasing your water intake on a daily basis and getting rid of any toxic habits, following are some important dietary supplements that can help restore your mane:
- folic acid
- Beta-carotene is converted to Vitamin A as the body needs it and helps maintain normal growth and bone development, protective sheathing around nerve fibers, as well as promoting healthy skin, hair and nails.
- Flaxseed oil - use the oil in salads, take capsules or liquid teaspoons
There are some great supplements on the market today that are specifically designed to support healthy, shining hair, skin and nails.
We would recommend trying to get as many of your nutrients out of a healthy balanced diet as possible as the quality of absorption and other nutritional benefits exceed those of a supplement.
