Vitamin C the miracle worker.

So let’s get to know vitamin C better.

Many people see healthy hair as a sign of health and beauty.
Like any other part of your body, hair needs a variety of nutrients to be healthy and grow.
In fact many nutritional deficiencies are a factor in hair loss.
While factors such as age, genetics and hormones also affect hair growth.
Optimal nutrient intake is key.
Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that helps protect our body.
In addition our body needs it to absorb iron which is a metal essential for hair growth.

Vitamin C

Vitamin C deficiency.

A lack of vitamin C can cause dry and brittle hair.
It can also lead the body to iron deficiency anaemia and this often leads to hair fall.
Deficiency is also caused by smoking, alcohol abuse, chronic diseases and eating disorders.
It is better to take vitamin C through the diet than from supplements.
However, when hair loss is the problem, a combination of both is best.

Because vitamin C is water-soluble it can be easily lost in cooking.
So it is extremely important to get it from fresh fruits and vegetables.
The following are packed with nutrients and rich in vitamin C.

Vitamin C in fruits and vegetables
  • Oranges
  • Lemons
  • Strawberries
  • Kiwi fruit
  • Melons
  • Watermelons
  • Cabbage
  • Broccoli
  • Red and green peppers
  • Potatoes and sweet potatoes
fruits rich in Vitamin C

Why is vitamin C important?

It is essential for a wide range of bodily functions, including wound healing.
Also, bone health, collagen production and hair protection.
Our body cannot make or synthesize this vitamin on its own.
Therefore, it is imperative that you consume the above foods.
You can even take supplements containing it on a daily basis.

If you follow these tips that can only do you good, in less than six months you will see spectacular results in your body and hair.
