Why seaweed is good for your hair
If you're looking for an addition to your diet that will give you strong, glossy, healthy hair, look no further than seaweed. This superfood has been a traditional part of the beauty regimen in many countries for thousands of years, but is just now making its way into the mainstream of Western culture.
So how does seaweed keep your hair healthy and strong? Here are some of the nutrients in seaweed that contribute to shiny, beautiful hair:
- Zinc: This mineral helps to regulate the body's levels of dihydrotestosterone (DHT), which is responsible for hair loss in men. Zinc deficiency can lead to hair becoming thinner and finer than it usually would be.
- Iodine: By regulating production of the thyroid hormone thyroxin, iodine also helps to grow long, strong hair by reducing the amount of time that your hair follicles stay dormant. The less time hair spends in the dormant stage, the faster it grows.
- Vitamin B and folic acid: Seaweed contains vitamin B complex, which includes folic acid and choline. These chemicals are vital for controlling your metabolism, which affects the rate of your hair growth, and encouraging cell growth and division, which is important in the creation of new hair.
- Vitamin D: Full of omega-3 fatty acids, vitamin D helps protect the scalp against dandruff and infections. It also aids in the absorption of calcium, another essential nutrient for follicle health.
