My fitness friend Maiah is back with another Nutrition Talk Tuesday and the topic of the day is… HAIR GROWTH!
READ BELOW (:
With all the blue gummies and magic hair oils claiming to grow your hair, how can you know what really works? If I have an external problem I always see if I can solve it internally! Above there are a list of supplements that can improve hair growth and retention!
1. PROTEIN: you’re hair is mostly protein, without a steady intake of protein hair growth can slow
2. IRON: low iron can cause many other problems, when it comes to hair growth low iron can reduce the oxygen supply to your scalp slowing growth and making it hard to retain. Taking an iron supplement without sulfur can boost your levels w/o constipation
3. OMEGA 3s: fatty acids make up the cell membranes of your scalp, follicles and the natural oils produced by your scalp. Our bodies do not produce omega 3s naturally. Supplementing a fish oil, eating more fish and nuts can help
4. COLLAGEN: Collagen is an amino acid that is a building block of hair. Our collagen levels begin to decline 1% after age 25 which can eventually cause hair thinning over time. Maintaining collagen levels can improve hair growth rate and thickness. Supplementing collagen in powder form like Vital Proteins can yield significant results
Forget the magic shampoos, conditioners, oils and gummies. A sure way to maintain hair health and increase growth starts within! The amazing thing is that these supplements come with more benefits than hair growth. Thanks for reading and if you have any questions or comments drop them below!
