How Vitamin D Promotes Hair Growth.
What do fish, eggs, and sun all have in common? Vitamin D. Vitamin D is essential when promoting hair growth. It is a fat soluble nutrient, which means the calcium from these foods is absorbed and stored in your bones to increase the amount of cell growth. If you are deficient in Vitamin D, then you are not absorbing enough calcium which leads to poor hair growth and hair thinning.
Because your hair is made up of cells and protein, calcium also is essential to the growth of new hair follicles, which are tiny pores where new hair can grow. Dormant follicles are a result of balding and prevent your scalp from producing strong, thick hair.
Vitamin D has many other benefits such as bone development, supporting a healthy immune system, and can reduce inflammation.
You find D-3 in fatty fish, eggs, mushrooms, and dairy products. What you eat can tell a lot about the appearance of your hair, which is why making healthy choices is so important.
