Hair Growth Tip: Get enough vitamin C.

Vitamin C deficiencies can cause hair that is weak, lusterless, and prone to breakage.

  • Your body uses vitamin C to build collagen, which is crucial in developing hair growth. Vitamin C also assists in breaking down iron, another building block of hair, so maintaining good levels of vitamin C is necessary to absorb iron.
  • The body cannot make vitamin C on its own. It’s therefore crucial that you eat and drink foods that have high concentrations of vitamin C. Cantaloupe, citrus fruits, broccoli, bell peppers, and spinach are all fantastic and great-tasting foods that are packed with vitamin C.
  • Vitamin C is loaded with anti-oxidant properties, just like vitamin E and zinc. These anti-oxidants reduce the damage that is caused by free radicals that are formed when food is converted into energy by the body. These free radicals can do a lot of damage to your hair, which is one reason why we need to make sure that we have enough of this vitamin in our diets.

To ensure that your body is getting enough vitamin C, I recommend supplementing with Long & Healthy Essentials (hair growth vitamins).  It differs from other popular brands because of its time-released vitamin C.  This ensures a consistent release of vitamin C in your system to boost the benefits of all the vitamins, minerals and herbs aiding in giving you the best hair growth.

Lean proteins for hair growthSince your hair is primarily made of protein, make sure you’re getting plenty of protein in your diet.  Some proteins to consider incorporating into your diets: lean meats such as chicken and turkey, fish, eggs, soy products, beans, and nuts.
