Three Nutrients to Help Your Hair- and One Supplement You Might Not Know About!

Hair loss is stressful. When you start to research why it’s happening, you find that there are many reasons your hair could be falling out aside from male or female pattern hair loss: stress, thyroid function, tight hairstyles, poor nutrition.

Now you can decrease your stress level through meditation or exercise, relax your hairstyle to prevent pulling at the root, even get your thyroid levels checked. But do you know what to eat to help your hair follicles?

The omega-3 fatty acids found in salmon, walnuts, and chia seeds make up approximately 3% of your hair; your body doesn’t produce it naturally.

Iron, found in dark leafy greens, is important for many reasons; but it also keeps oxygen flowing to your skin and hair follicles.

Vitamin C in berries and citrus help maintain your iron levels; and too little of it can lead to breakage.

Nutritional Powerhouse

Want to add a supplement to help your hair, skin, and nails? Check out collagen powder. Naturally found in bone broth, collagen makes up the gelatins that give broths that distinct richness and body. Adding a scoop a day to a smoothie, soup, or even in your coffee can help your hair begin to grow and regain its luster! You may even begin to see other health benefits as well!

If you’ve adjusted everything you can control, but your hair is still thinning, it might be time to see the doctor. In Atlanta, Dr. Ben Stong of Kalos Hair Restoration holds the solution to a thick head of hair. Call our office today to schedule your consultation.
