6 nutrients for healthy hair

Healthy hair and skin start from the inside, so having a nutritionally balanced diet is vital to support healthy hair growth and shine.


Iron & Zinc

Iron and Zinc are key for the maintenance of healthy hair follicles. Red meat is jam-packed full of these nutrients. Prefer a meat free diet? Try soybeans and lentils.


Omega 3 fatty acids

Omega-3 fatty acids are important fats that our body cannot make itself. Eating fatty fish, such as salmon, helps to nourish your hair cells, which promotes healthy hair growth.


Biotin

Eggs are rich in vitamin B, which is essential for growth. They’re also an excellent source of protein and vitamin D which both help to keep your hair strong. Not an egg fan? Snack on some walnuts instead.


Spinach

Popeye wasn’t the best advocate for spinach, as he didn’t exactly have flowing locks. However spinach is filled with vitamins B, C & E as well as potassium, calcium, iron, magnesium and omega 3. The iron content helps red blood cells carry oxygen to the hair follicles, which is essential for healthy hair growth.


Vitamin C

Vitamin C helps the body to absorb iron. It also assists in the production of collagen which is highly important in hair growth. The best sources are blackcurrants, blueberries, guava, oranges, kiwi fruit, sweet potatoes and strawberries.


Protein

Protein is the main component of your hair, making it absolutely essential that you include plenty of it in your diet. A lack of protein in your diet will have a big impact on your hair, making it weak and brittle. Chicken, turkey, fish and eggs are excellent sources of protein along with vegetarian sources such as legumes and nuts. Viviscal's key proprietary ingredient is AminoMar C™ which is a marine protein complex.
