8 Natural Solutions For Hair Loss
The Role Magnesium Plays In Hair Loss
Kristen Recommends - avocado, pumpkin seeds, and beans.
The Role Vitamin D Plays In Hair Loss
Vitamin D: is an important micronutrient for your hair because it stimulates new hair follicle growth. The best place to get vitamin D is from sunshine. My favorite whole food source for this is cod liver oil. Did you know that synthetic vitamin D does not utilize the cholesterol in your body, meaning you skip a step and leave the cholesterol without being converted to vitamin D?
Kristen Recommends - salmon and egg yolks.
The Role Vitamin A Plays In Hair Loss
Vitamin A: cod liver for the win again. Vitamin A needs to be balanced with vitamin D and helps keep your liver healthy. The most important role vitamin A plays with your hair is keeping your scalp moisturized.
Kristen Recommends - broccoli, sweet potatoes, carrots, and pumpkin seeds.
The Role Iron Plays In Hair Loss
Iron: helps your hair to grow as it boosts circulation and carries oxygen to the root helping it grow faster and longer.
Kristen Recommends - eggs, liver, broccoli, pumpkin seeds, and oysters
Ferritin: is a type of protein found in your blood that stores iron. When your body gets low in ferritin, your body will take that ferritin from your hair, leaving it weak.
Kristen Recommends - green leafy vegetables, beans, pumpkin seed, and 85% or more dark chocolate.
The Role Vitamin C Plays In Hair Loss
Vitamin C: helps you absorb your iron more efficiently. Supplements made from High Fructose Corn Syrup actually rob your body of ferritin. vitamin C from a whole food source like Acerola Cherry Powder will give you the vitamin C boost needed for hair growth.
Kristen Recommends: brussels sprouts, strawberries, kiwi, and grapefruit.
The Role B12 Plays In Hair Loss
B12: is needed to carry oxygen to your hair follicle. Remember, B12 is depleted every time you experience stress and/or eat sugar. Desiccated liver is a whole food source of B12.
Kristen Recommends - eggs, salmon, clams, and nutritional yeast.
The Role Zinc Plays In Hair Loss
Zinc: is essential in keeping the oil glands around your hair follicle working. If your hair is really dry or oily, we can look at zinc for solutions.
