great foods for hair health
No doubt you've heard the statement, "You are what you eat." It's true, and it is true for your hair.
The diet you happen to be on has a lot to do with just how healthy your hair is. Hair grows
continually and your hair growth -- how much hair you grow, the quality of your hair, and how
quick your hair grows -- is greatly dependent on the nutrients your body gets each day by way of
Experts say that it is critical to have adequate nutrition in order to have healthy hair. Crash diets super low calorie or carbohydrate intake - have been linked to lifeless, dry, brittle, or thinning hair.
These diets don't actually help the other organs in your body either, so you can be positive they're
not going to help your hair be healthy.
There are some specific foods known to assist in promoting of healthy hair. There are foods that
are rich in one vital nutrient, and some are full of several essential nutrients. Taking in the right

compound for making your hair have that all-natural shine to it. In addition, it serves to protect hair

tissues. Vitamin C is also used in the natural manufacture of sebum. For much faster hair growth,
there's iron. The body has problems taking in iron from certain food sources. Thinning hair or
premature baldness are often caused by zinc deficiency. A high zinc diet might promote swift
growth, and fuller hair. Dry, brittle hair, on the other hand, is often due to biotin deficiency. For a
healthy scalp, you need omega-3 fatty acids. Among the nutrients for promoting quick hair growth
and strong hair, protein is one of the most vital. Lastly, complex carbs help your body effectively
Chard and broccoli are full of iron and vitamins A and C. Brown rice is an excellent source of
complex carbs and B vitamins. For zinc, iron, protein, and biotin, kidneys beans are loaded with
these vital nutrients. For readily assimilated iron, eat more spinach and raisins. Great protein
sources include eggs, milk products, nuts, and soy. Omega-3 fatty acids are in flax seed and
Although some foods have low to moderate levels of important nutrients, the foods described
have especially high levels. Make sure you incorporate these foods in your diet if your objective is
to keep your hair healthy and naturally beautiful.
