Best foods for healthy hair
23 August 2017
It's quite touchy topic when we talk about hair.Nobody would enjoy when anyone starts to pulls their leg relating to this agenda.Everybody wants that healthy long hair but How? Let's understand first what is our hair is made up of ? Each strand is made up of cells that contain a tough protein called keratin and they need to be constantly nourished with minerals and vitamins to make your hair long and strong. To care for your hair inside out,its also critical to pay attention to your diet. Let's see some best foods listed below for healthy hair.   1. Flax Seeds,almonds & walnuts Flax seeds contain a high amount of iron where almonds,walnuts along with flaxseeds are really high in Omega-3 fatty acids which support scalp health and encourage hair growth.Since your body cannot produce these healthy fats, you need to derive them from your diet.Adding spoonful of whole flaxseeds in smoothies,mixed fruits or salads can be beneficial for your hair health. 2. Sweet Potatoes Sweet potatoes are rich in antioxidant beta-carotene, which body transforms into Vitamin A. It helps to protect and produce oil on the scalp. 3. Greek yogurt Its packed with protein, the building block of your locks. Greek yogurt also has an ingredient that helps with blood flow to your scalp and hair growth. Its called vitamin B5 (known as pantothenic acid) and may even help against hair thinning and loss.have it as snack alone or make its dip/dressings, add in smoothies or desert.  4. Eggs Our hair is made up of protein, therefore it is important to ensure that you have enough protein in your diet. Protein is the building block of hair and eggs is rich in vitamin B called biotin that helps hair grow. Not having enough of this vitamin can lead to hair loss. Biotin also helps strengthen brittle fingernails. 5. Spinach  spinach is full of amazing nutrients. It has tons of vitamin A, plus iron, beta carotene, folate, and vitamin C.Iron is an essential mineral that your hair cells require. In fact, a deficiency of iron in the body may cause hair loss. When your body is running low on iron, oxygen and nutrients are not getting transported to the hair roots and follicles adequately which can inhibit growth and make your strands weak.  6. Citrus fruits  Your body requires Vitamin C for iron absorption therefore; you need to add citrus fruits high in vitamin C like guava,oranges,grapefruit to your diet.Add 1 orange a day in your diet & see the wonders of it.Vitamin C is also required for the production of collagen that make capillaries that connect to the hair shafts strong thus, ensuring regular supply of nutrients and quick hair growth. 7. Avocado  Vitamin E improves the blood circulation and helps the follicles work more efficiently to promote hair growth. It also maintains the oil and PH levels balance which if exceeds can clog the hair follicles and stop hair growth. Avocado is great source of Vitamin E and it is also rich in the heart healthy monounsaturated fats. You can add it to your breakfast salad or use it in preparing smoothies.
