Vitamins for hair
Everyone wants beautiful hair, while some of us are blessed with beautiful tresses; some of us have to work harder at it. You can eat well and ensure you are helping your hair as much as possible.
For those times when you need a hand to meet your nutritional needs, make sure your hair supplements contain the following vitamins for hair.
Vitamins for healthy hair include:
- Vitamin A
- B vitamins
- Folic Acid
- Vitamin E
Vitamin E fights the free radicals that damage our cells and cause our body to age. So vitamin E could be a key element in preventing greying hair and hair loss too.
Vitamin A, a deficiency of Vitamin A will cause dry hair and rough skin. This vitamin cannot be stored, and should be replenished in the body on a daily basis through diet or supplements. Always be sure to take only the RDA and not exceed that.
Biotin is believed be a vitamin for hair growth, and a preventative to excessive hair loss. It appears to metabolise fatty acids. Fatty acids are a valuable growth factor in numerous processes in the body including the hair. Biotin is also seen as an aid in preventing hair turning grey. It is a member of the B vitamin group.
Inositol is also a member of the B vitamin group and is known specifically to beneficial for hair growth. This hair vitamin is a white knight of sorts to the hair follicles, protecting them from cellular damage. Deficiencies of inositol have been associated with hair loss.
Folic Acid is a water soluble B vitamin and is believed to help in maintaining healthy hair, skin and nails.
Silica is essential for healthy hair, although not a vitamin; it is a mineral important in tissue maintenance. Silica activates the enzymes that produce collagen, elastin for healthy skin, beautiful hair and strong nails. Horsetail extract is a herb that is naturally rich in Silica.
