The Importance of Soluble Hair Growth Vitamins
Raise your hand if you have heard of Biotin. Now, raise your hand if you take Biotin to make your hair grow.
If the answer was “yes” to the above scenario, then you are already taking one soluble vitamin. Biotin is commonly referred to as the “hair growth vitamin.” Biotin assists with hair growth by producing fatty acids and improving keratin infrastructure. The recommended daily serving is 30 mcg per day for adults. Besides supplementing with Cheveux, you can find Biotin in foods like whole wheat bread, cheddar cheese, pork, salmon, avocado and cauliflower.
However, this is just one piece to a large hair health puzzle. There are multiple soluble vitamins, which all play a part in getting that long, luscious hair that you desire.
Vitamin C is also an essential soluble vitamin needed for hair growth, as it creates and maintains collagen. Hair is composed of collagen, so clearly Vitamin C is a MUST. The recommended daily serving is 75 mg per day for adult females and 90 mg per day for adult males. You can find Vitamin C in foods like oranges, red peppers, kale, brussels sprouts, broccoli, strawberries and guava.
Niacin, also known as Vitamin B, is another piece to this hair health puzzle. This soluble vitamin improves blood circulation, which helps hair grow by causing more blood flow to the scalp. More blood flow to the scalp means more oxygen and nutrients to the hair follicles. The recommended daily serving is 14 mg per day for adult females and 16 mg per day for adult males. You can find Niacin in foods like chicken, salmon, tuna, turkey, avocado and brown rice.
Remember, to achieve your goal of thick, long hair – you need to think about the big picture. While taking Biotin is important, it is also important to ensure that you have a balanced vitamin intake. Cheers to healthy hair.
