Important foods for healthy hair

If like many of us, one of your 2020 resolutions is to watch your diet, we’ll bet you didn’t stop to think about the impact it might have on your hair as well as your waistline! So don’t forget to consider the all-important nutrients for hair health.

But don’t feel that means that you need to quit on your weight loss aspirations!

Don’t quit, but remember to feed your hair when you’re on a diet to lose weight.

Your hair thrives on a plentiful supply of specific proteins, vitamins and minerals. When your body isn’t getting enough of them from your daily diet, it will naturally prioritise other needs. Which means your hair is often the last to get a look in and its health suffers as a consequence.

So when you’re on a diet, or if you’re just not eating healthily every day, (which can be difficult with a hectic lifestyle), it might be that your hair also needs supplements. The extra nutritional intake will help support and maintain normal hair health.

How Viviscal supplements can help

Viviscal supplements are the result of 25 years’ research and development. They combine a whole host of ingredients to feed and nourish the hair from within.

The unique ingredient, AminoMar C™ is a proprietary marine protein complex. This is blended with ingredients like iron, vitamin C, silica, millet seed, and niacin. Plus, importantly, biotin and zinc to support the maintenance of normal healthy hair.

Zinc is essential for your hair health. It promotes the health of hair tissues and repairs hair tissues. So Zinc should be a part of your diet to boost hair health. And Zinc deficiency is also linked with hair shedding.

A surprise to most of us is that it’s actually quite normal to shed between 100 and 150 hairs every day! But if you think you are shedding more hair than usual it’s probably time to re-evaluate the nutrition content of your daily meal, and also see how Viviscal supplements can help.
