Top 5 Foods for strong Hair
Hello, this is Giampaolo Floris from Endhairloss.eu and in this post I will talk about the top 5 foods for healthy hair: the best nutritional sources that will help you stop your hair loss fast (remember to use our program – see the intro videos subscribing in our home page).
The cells that support strong, healthy hair depend on a balanced diet, just like every other organs or parts of our body.
If you follow a bad diet, you may not notice the negative effects on your hair immediately.
It can take longer to notice positive or negative changes.
- In just one week with a bad diet, this can yield acne flare-ups;
- In just a few days you can notice a sallow skin but
- It can take up to one month of nutritional deficiency and junk food, for the effects to really show up on your hair.
The nutrients you eat today help make the hair follicle vibrant and strong.
Yes, naturally there are other factors connected with your hair’s health and there’s more to it than what you eat.
If you smoke too much, or if you have sleeping problems and may be hormonal imbalances, well your hair will still be in trouble.
If the micro blood circulation to your hair follicles decreases, well you can’t really help your hair, unless you create the necessary vasodilation of the capillaries that allow the blood to reach the roots and follicles.
No magic dies can make up for these concerns.
Still, if you eat a balanced, varied, protein-rich diet based on the following foods, you’ll be giving your hair the exact nutrition it needs.
Here are the top 5 foods for strong hair:
Exotic fruits may come and go but when it comes to vitamin C, it’s hard to top this nutrientional element.
Vitamin C is critical for blood circulation to the scalp and supports the small blood vessels that feed the follicles. Too little C in your diet can cause eventually hair breakage.
Super alternatives: Strawberries, Kiwis and tomatoes.
Spinach contains folate, beta carotene, iron, and lots of vitamin C: these elements contribute to keep the hair follicles healthy and promote blood circulation.
Super alternatives: similar nutrient-rich dark, leafy vegetables: swiss chard, kale and broccoli.
Lentils are full of protein, iron, zinc, and biotin, and this makes them a great nutritional element for both meat eaters and vegetarians.
Super alternatives: other beans such as kidney and soybeans.
The flesh of this pink and super tasty fish is rich in omega-3 fatty acids, vitamin D and proteins.
These are all key elements to strong hair.
Our body can’t make these fatty acids, which your body needs to grow hair.
A small percentage of the hair shaft is made up of these fatty acids, which are also situated in cell membranes in the skin of our scalp.
Super alternatives: If this fish is not your favourite, you can also get essential fatty acids from other fishes like mackerel, sardines and trout.
Other good sources are avocado, pumpkin seeds, and walnuts (see below).
Walnuts are the only type of nut that have a good amount of omega-3 fatty acids.
They’re also rich in vitamin E and biotin, which helps protect your cells from DNA damage.
Biotin is very important for our hair, and too little of it can lead to hair thinning.
These nuts contain also the mineral copper, which helps maintain our natural hair color rich and shining.
Super alternatives: you can use walnut oil in your favourite salad.
I recommend you to join the Full Program to stop hair loss (as I said, see the intro videos visiting our home page and subscribing).
