Hello, this is Giampaolo Floris from and in this post I will talk about the top 5 minerals to promote healthy hair growth and prevent hair loss.

These are the best nutrients and important biological molecules that are necessary to keep hair healthy, strong and shiny.

Iron deficiency, a condition known as anemia, is one of the main causes of hair loss, along with DHT and poor blood flow.

Iron is essential for the healthy growth of your hair follicles.

Red meat is a very good source of this mineral, as are non-meat foods such as lentils and soybeans.

Remember that vitamin C helps boost iron absorption so be sure to eat a leafy green salad or oranges(or other fruits containing vitamin C) alongside your roast beef, marinated steak or nut cutlet.

2) Silica

Silica is fundamental for your health, including that of your skin and scalp.

This mineral helps to strengthen your blood vessels and improve blood flow, which can stimulate the blood flow to your scalp and encourage growth.Silica and hair loss Top 5 minerals to promote healthy hair growth and prevent hair loss

It also is a necessary component of the skin’s connective tissues and helps to strengthen your bones, nails and hair.
Foods and drinks containing silica are leafy green vegetables, coffee, bell pepers, whole grains, soy beans and iceberg lettuce.

You also can take silica supplements or brew a tea made with horsetail, which is a nice source of silica.


This trace mineral is necessary to balance the calcium ingested as dietary supplements and as a consequence has a key role to play in the growth of healthy hair.

Its deficiency is one of the main biochemical cause of hair loss that affects the functions of thyroid, metabolism, heart nervous system, muscular and digestive system.

I recommend you to eat fermented foods such as yogurt, kefir, but also cooked spinach, sauerkraut, and pumpkin seeds.

These foods introduce beneficial bacterial into your digestive system which helps keep it healthy and help calcium and magnesium be absorbed into your body.

This in turn helps prevent hair loss.


Just like magnesium, zinc is another essential mineral and its presence in adequate amounts in your body, is required for the division of cells in your hair follicles.

The foods containing this important mineral are:
pumpkin, Beef, Lamb, Spinach, Squash Seeds, sea food and nuts.

5) Sulphur:

Human hair is made from an important protein called keratin, which is high in sulphur content.

The presence of sulphur gives healthy hair its strength and elasticity; conversely, the absence of enough sulphur leads to brittle hair that is easily broken.

If you have fragile hair nails and/or dry skin, this could indicate a lack of this mineral in your diet.

Including the right amount of sulphur can certainly help to bolster the overall health of your hair.

It works most efficiently in your body when taken together with the B group of vitamins.

Here are some foods that can be incorporated into a balanced diet to improve your hair’s health:
Fish, Poultry, Onions, Brussel sprouts, Eggs, Asparagus, Garlic, Broccoli, Cauliflowers and Wheat germ.

So, this is the end of this post.
