Not getting the appropriate nutrition can lead to a decline in hair growth, and in some extreme circumstances, even hair loss. To go from limp to lush, try adding some of the supplements below to your regimen.

Biotin – Sometimes called B7 or Vitamin H, biotin works by renewing hair follicles that are already growing and may result in stronger, thicker hair in about six months. Taking a daily dose of 5000mcg of biotin will help give you a stronger, thicker mane.

Omegas – The anti-inflammatory properties of Omage-3 fatty acids make for a powerful ally in combating hair loss by opening follicles and promoting healthy hair growth. Plus, they can give your locks a healthy sheen while preventing dry, flaky scalp. WIN!

Folic Acid – If you’ve ever taken a prenatal, you may have wondered why your hair and nails seem to grow like weeds. The answer is: folic acid. While it may prevent spinal and neurological birth defects, it can also help aid cell and tissues growth, too. A study performed by the Ontario Veterinary College at the University of Guelph in Canada, states that folic acid also seems to be effective in treating alopecia in calves. There’s a lot to like about this powerful member of the Vitamin B family!

Vitamin D – This is a new one you’ve probably haven’t heard. Recent research has revealed a connection between the absence of vitamin D and hair loss. A recent study found that vitamin D controls mineral balance in the body through vitamin D receptors. What’s interesting is that zinc is one of those minerals controlled by vitamin D, and a zinc deficiency can cause hair loss, with hair growth resuming only when zinc levels are restored.
