If the diet is not rich enough in vitamins, minerals, proteins and nutrients, the hair, skin and nails are the first to resent it, since the nutrients are absorbed by the body's major organs such as heart, liver, etc. leaving hair and nails until the last.
If your hair falls out easily or is damaged, it is more likely that your diet is not the most appropriate. Shampoos or outpatient treatment for hair can only do very little for the hair, but pay special attention to what you're eating, remember that your hair is fed, mainly by your diet.
So here are the essential nutrients for a great hair, and some juices to drink during the day so you will always have the basic nutrients.
Even if you eat very well, there are three factors that can prevent that hair gets nourished:
1. Stress, which does not allow adequate absorption of nutrients and which also causes tension in the scalp and does not allow the follicle to feed properly, weakening the hair and causing it to fall.
2. A saturated intestine: the intestine is responsible for absorption of nutrients and that these pass into the bloodstream to be distributed. If intestine does not work well or is loaded with toxins and harmful fats, then it cannot absorb nutrients properly. To keep the bowel clean, we must not abuse the saturated fats, junk food, sugar and refined flour.
3. Poor blood circulation, which can be remedied by exercising and helping to stimulate the scalp with massage. The blood is what carries nutrients to the hair, if it is not efficient and "up" properly to your head, your hair will suffer.
So, taking into account these few tips, here are some of the foods most effective for your hair which must be in your diet:
