Whole grains provide the body with zinc, iron, and B vitamins - which are very essential nutrients for healthy, growing hair.
- Zinc helps in the maintenance of healthy hair and skin. Studies show that insufficient zinc levels may actually result in hair loss.
- Iron carries oxygen to the hair follicles; making it one of the most important nutrients for the hair.
- B Complex Vitamins work together to help maintain healthy hair and skin. Health experts claim that the more popular B vitamins like niacin and biotin can actually help to strengthen and nourish the hair.
One way to incorporate more whole grains is to add whole-wheat bread and fortified whole-grain breakfast cereals to the diet.
