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.
All of these ingredients have been included in our formulation for hair and skin, Beauty Totale. Free from fillers, nasties, bulking and binding agents that most mainstream supplements contains, our capsules contain the nutrients and nothing else and are vegetarian friendly
- Carrot Oil for Face Hello :) Carrot Oil contains Beta Carotene and Vitamin A which, by eliminating toxic build-up and repairing sun-damaged skin, helps to improve skin complexion. Antiseptic properties also assist in reducing breakouts and the formation of acne. It is also great for hydrating the skin. So mixing it with Jojoba oil may help. I would also recommend mixing Jojoba oil and Tamanu oil as both have great moisturising properties and are great for acne prone skin. Hope this helps!
- Carrot Oil for Face I have acne. I have been using jojoba oil only but I noticed my face is sometimes dry. If I add carrot oil will it help moisturize my face and clear the spots or should I join argan oil to the mix?
- Ashwagandha Dosage for AnxietyI found a supplement that is 500 mg, 120 Count. Do you recommend taking 1 capsule daily? or 2 capsules? I also take thyroid medication and an SSRI among other things.
- The amazing Ashwagandha benefits for womenHello Dia, Thank you for your comment. Research is confusing when it comes to testosterone levels with PCOS and using Ashwagandha. As it is an adaptogenic herb, it will 'adapt' to the environment of the body to support hormonal balance. A huge therapeutic benefit of Ashwagandha is its ability to balance cortisol levels, which could improve stress and symptoms of PCOS also. If you are currently using any medications or under medical supervision, please seek advice from your practitioner to ensure there are no interactions. I hope this helps :)

- The amazing Ashwagandha benefits for womenHi Simie, thank you for your message. Ashwagandha is safe to be taken alongside other supplements including Vitamin E and Calcium. We would advise you check with your GP for interactions with estrogen medications for menopause as there are different variations of these medications. I hope this helps :)
