There are several vitamins and minerals linked to the development and growth of hair cells, follicles, and shafts.
Depleted or deficient levels of the following can have a detrimental effect on scalp health, and the condition, and growth of your hair.
Vitamins C, D, E, B3 (niacin), B7(biotin), B9 (folate), B12 (cobalamin)
Minerals; Zinc, Iron, Selenium, and Calcium
Excessive intake and toxic levels can also interfere with the fundamentals of hair growth.
If your Trichologist finds that your vitamin or mineral levels are depleted you may be advised to adapt your diet and take vitamins or minerals vital to hair growth in a specified dose. This may be suggested as one solution to optimise hair growth that is included in a personalised treatment plan.
Hair growth supplements are vitamins and minerals they’re also called nutritional supplements so may do your body a favour too.
Healthy hair is an extension of a healthy body. The best way of making sure you stay healthy is by making sure your body gets all the vitamins and minerals and the vital nutrients such as protein and omega 3 healthy fats it needs by eating a well-balanced diet.
With so many folks suffering from food sensitivities, intolerances, and eating disorders, self-education about dietary intake has raised awareness for the need to eat a balanced diet and prevent vitamin & mineral deficiency. If you’re taking food supplements to compensate for dietary concerns make sure you’re not consuming more than the recommended daily amounts (RDA) of the micronutrients linked to hair health. Excessive intake and toxic levels can also interfere with the fundamentals of hair growth. When you take vitamins they’re always absorbed into your bloodstream so it’s important to know how much you’re taking or talk to your GP if you’re unsure.
