If you've noticed your hair falling out, brittle strands that won't grow or premature greys, then you should probably go for 'b'. A quick blood test will reveal if you're suffering from an overlooked, yet all-too-common deficiency that's often behind these hair problems. If you are, then you might be in luck: that miracle beauty product does actually exist. It's called iron.
How iron boosts hair growth
As rewarding as the product junkie lifestyle can be, good haircare really does start from within. The nutrients in your diet make up the structure of your strands - which makes iron like hair magic. Along with other micronutrients like folate, vitamin B12, vitamin D, and selenium, iron plays a major role in the rapidly dividing matrix cells that lie in the root of your hair. When your follicles are deficient in these essentials, all sorts of things start going awry: hair turns grey way before its time, strands start falling out, and your mane grows in slower, thinner and more fragile.
There are tons of studies linking iron deficiency to hair loss, and several which show a relationship between low iron and premature grey hair. Not only can iron deficiency give you low energy, decreased resistance to infection, and poor intellectual performance, it's bad news for your follicles, too.
Luckily, a lot of this is reversible. Boosting your supply of iron and other key micronutrients won't only improve your overall health, it can also fight back against premature greys, weak, breaking hair, hair loss and slow growth.
