The most common threat to the people now, an unexplained hair-fall can set off a panic button in younger folks irrespective of gender.
Permanent hair fall can be bad but the silver lining is that it can be cured. There are clinically proven Hair fall treatments (Mintop) that can help you restore your hair. But before you take a dip into these treatments make sure you know the reason for your hair fall. Given the general decline in the quality of food intake, check your diet. Time and again research has proved how our food habits can influence the health of our hair.
Though the market is flooded with highly expensive products that claim to improve the health and volume of the hair ; a balanced diet with protein, iron, and other essential vitamins & nutrients remains to be the best-kept secret and the important part here is that your diet is always in your own hands.
Accordingly here are the six most important elements that should be part of your daily nutrition for a healthy hair:
Protein: A Protein is what your hair is made up of. It is true that all the vitamins and nutrients play their part but the protein is the real deal here. Being the basic building block it helps in repairing and growing new hair on your scalp. A protein deficient diet slows the growth rate of your new hair and also thin out your current hair too.
Sources: Eggs, milk, lentils, nuts, beans chicken, fish, and any other animal food products.
Iron: : If protein is your ‘Batman’ then Iron would be his ‘Robin’. Simply put, Iron is the second most important mineral for your hair growth. When you are deprived of required amount of iron, the nutrients in your blood supply to your hair follicle takes a beating resulting in weaker hair strands ultimately causing the shredding: hair loss
Sources: All types of beans and animal foods, spinach, apple, chickpeas, lentils etc.
Vitamin C: Protein, Iron, Vitamin C form the triad of an essential elements for your hair. Vitamin C helps in the production of collagen which is very important for the growth of your hair. It also dons the role of a ‘Second’ for Iron, aiding it’s absorption into the body. Sources: Dark green leafy veggies, papaya, kiwi, guava, oranges, lemons and all kinds of citrus fruits.
Vitamin A:An itchy and dry scalp is the direct result of your body falling low on Vitamin A. Vitamin A is essential for our body to produce Sebum, an oily substance that acts as a natural conditioner that promotes a healthy scalp to combat hair loss.
Omega-3 Fatty Acids: Remember the days when your mom force fed you the fish claiming that it’s healthy; well, that happens to be true. A fish is a rich source of omega 3 fatty acids which are known to be super-effective for hair growth and strength. Sources: Tuna, sardines, salmon fish, egg yolks, pumpkin seeds, Walnut etc.
