Yes, another Hair Post: The Top 3 Vitamins for Healthy Hair

Thinking about replenishing your once luscious locks? Well boys and girls, listen up! Yes, boys too… even if you don’t have the thickest head of hair, these 3 vitamins offer plenty of other health benefits too. So here, I present to you the Top 3 Vitamins for Healthy Hair!

1. Vitamin B Complex:

Very Very Long HairAfter having done my research, I learned that Biotin (a water-soluble B vitamin), is key to maintaining healthy hair, skin, and nails. While biotin does not initiate hair growth (probably not useful for those gentlemen who are genetically balding), increasing intake should lead to a thicker, fuller head of hair. The only problem is, in some cases biotin can lead to mild acne and skin irritation. The Natural Factors Vitamin B Complex has pantothenic acid which counteracts and eliminates these side effects. Sufferers of symptoms of depression, migraines, PMS, mood swings, and feelings of stress and anxiety can also benefit from the B vitamins!

2. Vitamin A:

Vitamin A is another highly effective vitamin contributing to improved hair growth, strength, and damage repair.  However, there is a dosage limit. If the vitamin is taken in excess, it can lead to a less desirable effect: hair loss. So the aim is to take approximately 25,000 IU daily, and that includes through dietary intake and supplementation. In addition to the hair-related benefits, vitamin A also improves night vision, scalp acne, and protects against free radicals because it is an antioxidant. And don’t worry too much about that dosage limit; it’s hard to exceed.

3. Vitamin E:

Another vitamin for hair I stumbled upon is vitamin E, and while I thought it only came in cream form, I found yet another pleasant surprise. It can be taken as an easy-swallow or adversely, it can be found in certain shampoos, conditioners, and other hair products. Vitamin E actively protects against ultra-violet radiation from sun exposure. The sun can be extremely detrimental to hair health, causing it to become dry, split, and brittle, so vitamin E can be very useful!

So no more complaining about that seasonal hair damage! No more protests against the sun and wind of summer, and the cold and dryness of winter. These three vitamins will surely help you get through the year with stronger, healthier, longer, and thicker hair. No complaints here!

Dr. Oz Recommends CLA to Melt Fat Away!

Dr Oz FAT

How does it work?

CLA helps block fat cells in the body from filling up by interfering with the fat-storing enzyme, lipoprotein lipase as well as by increasing the sensitivity of cells to insulin. CLA is also believed to help burn fat by revving up muscle metabolism and increase lean muscle mass. The more muscle you have, the more calories your body uses, speeding up the fat burning process.

Dr Oz CLA

How much do I take?

For weight control, the suggested daily use is two 500 mg capsules, three times a day with milk or food or as directed by a physician. The proteins in milk or food will bind the fatty acids. People report that they start to see results in two to four weeks!
