The Importance of Health and Nutrition for your Hair

When my sisters and I we're growing up, we we're fortunate enough to have a mother who was ahead of her time, but I'm not talking about her hair, persay, I'm talking about nutrition! Luckily her passion for eating healthy was instilled in all three of us. We all grew up with a good, solid awareness for why we should eat foods that are packed with nutrients to fuel our bodies. Today, while the trend is to be eat healthy and exercise, to be in shape and feel great, we can't forget about that old saying, you are what you eat, and that includes your hair!

Oh! Eager to finally modify the general vibe with my steadfast website. Feelings about the overall appearance of Truly a magnificent Calgary based contractor insurance broker online if desired in the whole Alberta areas. Value your feedback. Appreciated!

According to webMD, your hair grows to inch every month. If you're not getting the proper nutrients your hair needs to be healthy then it's not going to grow in healthy! Worried that you'll have to redo your entire grocery list and spend all your time thinking about what to eat and what now to? Don't! Luckily, I've done the research for you and it's easier than you think. I've included some recipes to try too. So read on, and cheers to shiny, healthy hair!

Omega 3 Fatty Acids

Source: Fish, especially salmon, flaxseed, fish oil supplements, leafy greens, grass fed cows and chickens fed a diet rich in greens and flax

*Did you know that fish get their omega 3's from eating green plants and seaweed in the ocean. As for those of us that are land bound, omega 3's not only give us a healthy scalp, but they provide an excellent source of energy. (They are found in the flight muscles of hummingbirds!) Omega 3's help keep our scalp healthy and our hair shiny.

Vitamin A

Source: carrots, and dark leafy greens (also a good source of vitamin c) such as spinach, broccoli and swiss chard

*Did you know that vitamin A aids the body in the production of the oily substance called sebum, which acts as a natural conditioner for your hair when secreted by the hair's follicles

Vitamin B12

Source: eggs, salmon, whole grains

*Did you know that in addition to B12, eggs also contain biotin. Although it is not likely, but a deficiency in biotin results in brittle and dry hair.

Protein, Iron and Zinc

Source: legumes, whole grains, oysters, nuts, poultry beef and lamb

*Did you know that protein and iron help to enhance hair growth, while zinc strengthens hair and discourages shedding.


Source: low fat dairy products

*Did you know that the calcium in dairy products is important for hair growth! And ad if that wasn't good enough, dairy prodcuts are also a good source of high quality proteins thanks to the presence of whey and casein.

Remember, just as a deficiency can cause side effects, you can also experience symptoms from too much of certain vitamins, always consult with your doctor before added anything new to your diet and body.

I love coffee, so when I saw this recipe I had to give it a try.I love how the rich flavor of coffee complements the juiciness of the steak. But not only does it taste delicious, it supplies you with lots of hair healthy nutrients, including iron, protein, vitamin B12, and zinc! Eat up y'all!

Coat a large nonstick skillet with cooking spray and preheat it over medium-high heat or preheat the grill. In a small bowl, combine all the ingredients except the meat and rub it well into both sides of the steak.

Cook the steak for 5 minutes per side, turning once, for medium rare or to your desired degree of doneness. Allow the steak to sit for 5 minutes before slicing thinly.
