Hi, this is Sunday from Nutritional Designs. And this is a little special little segment I want to do for you ladies, and I really want to talk about something that when it does happen, we all really panic.
And it’s when our hair starts changing and this is something that when women come in, it’s a scary, scary thing. When you start seeing that all that hair kind of build-up on the pillow case, or you notice that change in texture in your hair. Now this can happen with hormone shifts, it can happen after pregnancy, it can happen with menopause, it can happen after a surgery or a trauma of some type. All of a sudden the hair starts to shift. And when this happens, we panic.
This is, it’s just not acceptable. So I want to talk to you today about four things that to me are very, very important, the first place to address when the hair starts making those changes. First thing, nutrient wise that we want to really dive into is something called biotin. Now biotin in a multiple vitamin might be a very, very low dose. Maybe 300 and we dose it as micrograms. Very small quantity. When the hair is shifting in a negative fashion, we hit this hard. 5000 micrograms is what we’re looking at, also known as 5 mg. So high does biotin is one of the first things we have to look at.
Second, thing, this all works together is a good B Complex. You need a really good high potency B Complex, as part of this. This is all have been part of getting that hair follicle to spark comes in. The third piece, is a good omega 3, and your omega 3s of course are flax seed, chia, fish oil, those are your omega 3s and you just pick one of those. We’ve got to get something in there, very important for hair, skin, nails anyway. So of course when we want that hair follicle to spark have that good omega 3s.
The last piece is good healthy proteins in the diet. And when I say protein, I’m not just saying that you have to eat meat all the time. Protein sources are found everywhere. They are found in our vegetables. They are found in nuts and seeds. They are found in beans and legumes, so there are many sources of good healthy proteins. And never forget the protein needs to come in at breakfast. This tends to be the time that we really skip that, so we’ve got to make sure that we have good healthy protein options because that is very necessary, again for that hair follicle. Now, those are the four factors we’ve got to look at.
Good forms of biotin, high dose, high potency. Good B Complex, again, nice high potency, and then we want some type of omega 3, we want good proteins in the diet. Alright? So those are big factors for hair and hair health. It is literally the first place that I am going to approach with any woman that comes in, really starting to panic with what’s happening and what’s changing in their hair and their hair quality.
Alright? So, that’s it. It’s just that simple to start. There might be some other things that play and sometimes we do need to address that maybe like a thyroid issue. But, if that’s all been ruled out for you, this is the approach to make. Alright? So there you go ladies. Hopefully that takes care of the issue.
Alright? Until next time, be well.
