Vitamins for Healthy Hair

Vital for healthy hair...and a healthy YOU!

For a healthy body you need to eat a variety of foods. In an ideal world, we would get all the nutrients from our rich diet of organic fruits and vegetables. Unfortunately, we must admit that we live in a fast-paced society where fast-food and easy-to-prepare (but not heart-friendly meals) rule.

All too often vitamins and supplements are necessary to make up for the nutritional deficit. Listed alphabetically below are some of the necessary vitamins and nutrients (along with what foods they are found in) that our body craves for healthy and beautiful hair.

Calcium: dairy products, broccoli, and beans.

Essential Fatty Acids: fish and flaxseeds.

Folic Acid: spinach and other leafy greens, peanuts, and yeast.

Iron: green veggies, brown rice, red meat, oats, and wholegrain breads.

Protein: dairy products, meat, and nuts.

Vitamin A: carrots, peaches, green vegetables, dark veggies, and eggs.

Vitamin B complex: chicken, fish, green veggies, whole grains, and avocados.

Vitamin C: broccoli, citrus fruits, potatoes, and strawberries.

Vitamin D: sunlight (avoid excessive exposure!).

Vitamin E: avocados, green veggies, oily fish (salmon).

Zinc: asparagus, eggs, mushrooms, oysters, radishes, and whole grains.

Remember, ideally, these would be consumed in a healthy diet. It seems that getting these vitamins and nutrients from a varied diet is preferrable, but vitamin and supplement pills work as an alternative. For your health, be sure to speak with a doctor about getting the proper amounts of the above listed vitamins on a daily basis.
