Here are six of the top minerals, nutrients, and fuel sources to help with your hair loss…

  • Protein : Hair is made up mostly of protein, therefore having plenty of protein in your meal can sometimes encourage healthy hair growth. However, having protein that is also high in fat isn’t something we’d recommend… Good sources of protein include fish, eggs, chicken, yogurt, low-fat milk, cheese, beans, seeds and nuts.
  • Vitamin B: B6, Folic Acid and Biotin are the ones you might want to focus on… B vitamins play important part in supporting healthy hair. Biotin is well known for it’s ability to support the health of skin, hair and nails. Source of biotin can be found in variety of foods but at low concentration, therefore it is recommend to take biotin as supplement to assist in hair loss problem. Good sources of biotin in food can be found in tomatoes, carrots, walnuts, eggs, onions, almonds, strawberry, raspberry, cucumber, cabbage, and cauliflower. Vitamin B6 is often found in protein-rich foods.
  • Iron : Iron is essential in transporting oxygen in the blood to all parts of the body including our hair. Lack of iron means lack of oxygen in our hair. This also means that nutrients couldn’t reach our hair and its follicles. Foods rich in iron include red meat, liver, lamb, oyster, whole grains, poultry, tuna, broccoli, soy beans, eggs and dark leafy vegetables. Combine these foods with vitamin C for better absorption of Iron.
  • Zinc : Zinc plays important roles in growth and development, hormonal balance, proper absorption of vitamins and in protein synthesis. All which are essential in the process of healthy hair growth. Zinc has also well known to control the appearance of dandruff. The number one food source of zinc is oyster and other great source of zinc can also be found in red meat, pultry, pork, beans, whole grains, almond and dairy products.
  • The Silica Mineral: This is a good one… It is important to assist healthy strong connective tissue in the body, which is necessary for healthy skin and stronger hair and nails. However, it is also one of the most difficult to find in our diet. You can find silica mostly in oats, brown rice, root vegetables, barley and leafy green vegetables. Silica also helps in utilizing other minerals such as boron, copper, magnesium, manganese, phosphorus, zinc and strontium. Therefore, supplementing yourself with silica will be very beneficial.
  • Omega-3 fatty acids : An extremely good source of this nutrient can be found when consuming fish, walnuts and flaxseed oil. This nutrient also supports scalp health, reducing any swelling inside and increasing more blood circulation to the follicles…
