9 Foods For Healthier Stronger Hair

Some cultures have very few instances of hair loss. The main reason why Western society has more occurrences of hair loss is because of the lack of nutrients in our diet. Americans are known for overeating. However, you can overeat and still not get the nutrients you need for optimal health.

You need to get these nutrients in absorbable forms. You also need to get a wide variety of different vitamins and minerals to ensure that your hair loss isn’t being caused by a nutritional deficiency.

1. Chickpeas

Eating chickpeas will help you to get all the zinc and vitamin B6 you need for healthy hair growth. Zinc has an important part in building hair protein and it also works together with vitamin A.

Not having both zinc and vitamin A in adequate amounts might cause you to have dandruff that could possibly cause you to have hair loss.

2. Roast beef
Non-vegans can choose roast beef instead and get all of the same benefits as eating chickpeas plus protein.

3. Soy beans

Soy contains optimal amounts of iron and vitamin E. Iron helps with hemoglobin production, which is responsible for getting oxygen to the tissues of the body. Vitamin E also helps to increase blood circulation to the scalp. Soy is also believed to have an effect on DHT.

4. Almonds
Almonds are an excellent source of vitamin e, iron and protein. This cholesterol-lowering food will help you avoid taking potentially hair loss causing cholesterol-lowering drugs.

5. Whole wheat

Whole-wheat is an excellent source of iron and silica. Silica isn’t usually found in abundance in western diets and it is very important because it helps with the absorption of other nutrients.

6. cow’s milk
An excellent source of iodine is cow’s milk. Milk is an excellent source of iodine and you can’t overdose on iodine from food sources. However, you can overdose on iodine from iodized salt. So you should be careful.

7. oats

Another excellent source of iron is oats. It’s also a good source of minerals potassium, magnesium, and phosphorus.

8. Oranges

Everyone knows that orange juice is a good source of vitamin C. Vitamin C alone is believed by many to help with hair loss, but it also helps with iron absorption.

9. Fish

It is an excellent source of EFA’s. EFA’s play a major role in maintaining healthy hair. It’s also a good source of vitamin A, protein, and vitamin B6.
