Have you ever thought about how Vitamin C can affect your hair health and growth?
Your hair says a lot about your health and wellness. If you have thick, full hair - that is a good indication that you are taking care of your body. If you have limp, weak hair, we need to talk. This is a sign that you are not feeding your hair the goodness that it craves.
Today, we are going to specifically focus on the benefits of Vitamin C. Although it has many functions through the body, the most critical is holding cells together through collagen synthesis. Collagen supports hair strength, growth and thickness, so without collagen you won't have the luscious locks that you so badly desire.
Vitamin C has many other benefits, such as improving blood flow, increasing absorption of iron and strengthening the immune system.
You may ask, where can I find this Vitamin C that you speak of?
Just to name a few ideas, Vitamin C can be found in oranges, sweet yellow peppers, kale, broccoli, brussel sprouts, or strawberries. If you don't like eating fruits and veggies, try drinking them! Orange juice is a great option that is full of nutrients.
Make sure that you are giving your body the proper nutrients to flourish. You know what they say, an orange a day keeps the weak hair away!
