Hair is one of the first distinguishing features someone notices about you! Whether your hair is short, long, blonde, dark, curly or straight, your hair is as much a part of your personality as your smile or laugh.
Given the visual appeal of hair, is it any wonder we strive to get it looking its best? While hair can go through moments when it may appear dull or lifeless, eating for hair health can provide your body with the right nutrients to bring back to life those lacklustre locks in no time.
Hair is in fact made from protein, so ensuring your diet contains adequate amounts of protein is important for strong, healthy hair. For vegans, vegetarians or those who favour a plant-based diet, as you would know protein doesn’t just need to come from animal sources. There are some great plant-based foods high in protein including quinoa, lentils, chickpeas and hemp seeds.
Biotin, also commonly referred to as vitamin B7, is a great vitamin for hair health. Many foods contain biotin, including organ meats, eggs, fish, meat, seeds, nuts, as well as some vegetables including sweet potato.
Biotin can also be taken as a supplement. Herbs of Gold Biotin 3mg contains high-strength biotin for supporting hair health, hair strength and hair thickness.
As B vitamins are water-soluble, they are not stored in the body, so regular dietary intake is important in order to maintain adequate levels.
Biotin also features with Silica in Herbs of Gold Silica Hair Skin & Nails. In addition to being the second most abundant mineral in the earth’s crust, Silica is also present in high concentrations in connective tissue throughout the body, including hair, skin and nails.
Developed as a high-strength, comprehensive formula, Herbs of Gold Silica Hair Skin & Nails features both biotin and silica in a one-a-day vegan-friendly tablet supporting hair strength, hair thickness and hair health.
