7 Vitamins You Can Take To Help Prevent Hair Loss

7 Vitamins You Can Take To Help Prevent Hair Loss

Premature hair loss can be devastating especially when factors like hormones, genetics and age are behind the hair loss. However, there are ways to prevent this from happening.

One remedy that’s proven to work is adding vitamins for hair loss to your daily routine. Yes, your main source of vitamins should be from consuming a variety of nutrient-rich foods, but you can add supplements if you’re not getting the vitamins from your diet. These vitamins work to fix the root of the problem, such as fighting oxidative stress or regulating your hormone levels that increase as you age.

 

Vitamins that help prevent hair loss

1. Thiamin (B1)

Containing the mineral sulphur, this is the essential element of the hair that gives gloss and shine.

2. Riboflavin (B2)

This vitamin is vital for body cell breathing, ensuring efficient oxygen utilisation for cell repair and production.

3. Niacin (B3)

Helps to widen capillaries and vessels thereby increasing the blood circulation to the scalp to help stimulate hair growth. It also may reduce the cholesterol buildup, which is essential since cholesterol on the scalp will convert to the enzyme 5-alphareductase.

4. Pantothenic acid (B5)

This vitamin helps in restoring hair colour and brightness. It works with the amino acid Tyrosine folic acid, PABA and copper in the deterrence of white and grey hair.

5. Biotin (B7)

Biotin is a widely used ingredient in hair products due to its hair promoting properties. Thus, biotin increases hair cortex
elasticity, prevents breakage and thickens hair cuticles.

6. Cobalamin (B12)

Regenerates red blood cells for healthy hair.

7. Pyridoxine (B6)

Responsible for protein intake balance, it helps in transporting amino acids to the proper tissues.This is also essential in the conversion of one amino acid to another like the conversion of methionine to cysteine.With inositol, they regulate oil flow to the scalp and the skin.
