Healthy Lifestyle,Healthier Hair!!

As always, consult your health professional before starting a vitamin or mineral supplement regimen or exercise program.

Most of us spend hundreds, if not thousands, of dollars buying products and vitamins to help promote healthy growing hair. Trust me, I was also a part of this cycle for years. Why won’t my hair grow? Why do I experience so much breakage? What if the problem stems from more than taking a vitamin a day? I believe that your overall health helps to promote healthy growing hair.

Promote a Healthy Eating Lifestyle. I know this can be hard, I love snacks too, but eating healthy can taste good!! A balanced diet is essential to the overall health of your body and hair. Therefore, include plenty of fruits, vegetables, fish, and meats in your daily diet. It is also important to include the right proteins in your diet: fish, turkey, chicken, eggs, bean, nuts and soy products. These foods promote keratin production, which happens to be the building block of hair. Other essential nutrients to include are Iron, Zinc, and Vitamin C. Iron helps to deliver oxygen to the cells in your body, while Zinc helps in the repair of your tissue and insures hair follicles are producing oil properly. Vitamin C is needed to break down iron, as well as, help build up hair that is prone to breakage. So the next time you want snack cakes and candy, try to substitute them with fruits or vegetables that you love instead.

Exercise. Along with eating healthy, exercise will help to improve your overall health. Exercises help reduce stress, process food, improve sleep patterns, as well as, maintain a healthy weight.

In addition to eating health and exercise, I think it’s perfectly fine to take vitamin and mineral supplements. Taking a supplement can fill in the gaps for the lack of vitamins ingested from your daily diet, or lack of your body to produce these vitamins. Also, supplements contain essential vitamins that may help prevent heart disease, cancer, and other health related problems. I am merely pointing out the benefits of a healthy lifestyle.
