Get Healthy Hair, Naturally

Spread the love

The most commonly heard complaint and question we get from Ask the Expert, probably has to do with hair health. A healthy, shiny, full head of hair is a sign of inner health, and therefore good nutrition should be a priority. If certain nutrients are missing from your diet, the result could be hair loss. Natural remedies may also be able to help improve and restore hair’s youthful appearance.

Fenugreek:  This herb has a unique blend of chemical constituents which can contribute to healthy-looking hair and a nourished scalp. Fenugreek has proteins needed for hair strength.

Biotin:  Biotin is an important coenzyme that is involved in a number of processes in the body. It is a member of the B-vitamin family and an essential nutrient in human nutrition. Biotin has been widely used for nutritional support of healthy skin, hair and nails; deficiencies have been linked to brittle nails and hair loss. All of the B vitamins work together and are best used by the body in a B-complex, which is why many B-complex supplements include a small dose of biotin in them.

Essential Fatty Acids:  As we age, our enzymatic systems become less efficient and we need a supplementary aid to help maintain equilibrium in our body’s lipid pool. Both omega-3s and omega-6s are needed for shiny, healthy hair.

Hormones also play a large role in hair health. Since this is the case, balancing your hormones is the key. A simple test can determine your estrogen and progesterone levels. To learn more, contact Naz at 1-800-869-9159, ext. 1019 for information about hormone testing.
