The Importance of Hair Nutrients


A bad hair day causes dissatisfaction to many people. Although the use of products including conditioners, shampoo, and hair tonics, are conventional approaches to these problems, the internal use of nutrients and other natural substances may offer support to the appearance of beautiful and healthy hair.

Hair is considered the fastest growing tissue in the body. Optimal growth of hair happens when a person is between 15 and 30 years old. When a person reaches 40 to 50 years old, hair growth begins to slow down. There are various natural substances and nutrients that may have benefit for promoting healthy hair.

Vitamin A offers protection to the hair follicle cells from any damage brought about by free recalls. Deficiency in vitamin A may lead to dry hair and eventually, cause hair loss.

Another vitamin that is beneficial for promoting healthy hair is Vitamin C. Its primary function is to help generate and sustain healthy collagen, a type of connective tissue found in the hair follicles. Moreover, Vitamin C is a potent antioxidant and offers protection to the cells found in the follicles and blood vessels.

Vitamin E, on the other hand, helps in maintaining the integrity of cell membranes of hair follicles. Vitamin E also gives physical stability to the cell membranes and functions as an antioxidant while promoting healthy hair and skin. When Vitamin E is taken alongside selenium, they work together in preventing attacks on cell membranes by free radicals. They do this by diminishing the peroxide concentration in the cell.
Folic acid is also important because it contributes to the prevention of the reduction of hair follicle cell division and growth. It is also essential in maintaining healthy levels of methionine in the body. When there is a folic acid deficiency, a person may experience graying hair, fatigue, apathy, and anemia.

Another substance is biotin, which is necessary for enzymatic responses in the body and the proper metabolism of fat protein and carbohydrate. Reduced metabolism of nutrients may lead to undernourished hair follicle cells. Biotin deficiency may lead to hair loss and skin rashes. A Harvard University study suggests that biotin is an essential nutrient for preserving the function, texture, and the strength of hair.

Calcium is important for our hair too. The body's calcium acts by stimulating cell mediators on cell membrane phospholipids in the hair follicle cells. To maintain healthy calcium levels, it is imperative to take magnesium with supplemental calcium.

Zinc is necessary for RNA and DNA production, which leads to healthy follicle cell division. Also, zinc is responsible for stabilizing cell membrane structure and assisting in the breakdown as well as the elimination of superoxide radicals. Iodine is also essential to the hair. Reduced iodine may lead to abnormal hair growth.
