When it comes to overall wellness, hair health also plays a vital role. Having healthy hair not only keeps your scalp issues away but also helps make your hair frizz free, hydrated and promotes hair growth. Healthy hair also boosts confidence, and may have a huge impact on self esteem.

The immense amount of pollution and dirt, regular chemical and heat treatments, and some illnesses may end up hampering our hair health. In such cases, only using the right products may not be enough and you may have to use external supplements. Here are some of the best supplements that can help you maintain those lustrous locks:

Multivitamins

Multivitamins can be effective in filling the nutritional gaps in our diet that may be causing hair loss. Zinc and B vitamin present in multivitamins aid the body with the growth of red blood cells as well as the maintenance of hair follicle health. Multivitamins come loaded with various other benefits that aid the maintenance of bodily functions.

Multivitamin supplements contain various combinations of vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and other nutrients. TrueBasics Multivitamin tablets for women as well as men are offered by multiple brands, and can be consumed as required. These can also be consumed in other forms including gummies or capsules.

Biotin

Biotin (or vitamin B7) is a water-soluble B vitamin that is known for its properties to support hair growth and maintain overall hair health. The body needs biotin to create a protein called keratin that is essential for the composition of hair, nails and skin. Biotin deficiency may not only cause hair loss or thinning but also other issues such as skin rashes, brittle nails, fatigue, and so on.

Plant-based alternatives for biotin supplements are also available in the market these days. The daily recommended intake of biotin for adults is 30 mcg and 35 mcg for breastfeeding women.

Omega 3 and Fish Oil

Omega 3 are a type of polyunsaturated fats that can be beneficial for hair growth and hair hair thickness. Fish oil, a specific type of TrueBasics omega 3 capsules, is specifically recommended to maintain hair health. Intake of fish oil provides proper nourishment to hair follicles, reduces inflammation, and facilitates proper circulation to boost growth.

Fish oil is usually obtained from salmon or mackerel, and up to 5000 mg of the supplement is safe to use on a daily basis.

Iron

Lower levels of iron in your body may lower haemoglobin levels as well. Haemoglobin acts as a carrier of oxygen in the body to various body parts (including your scalp to enhance hair growth), which, if failed, may lead to various health problems like lowered immunity, pallor, brittle nails or anaemia, in addition to hair loss.

The normal recommended daily dose of iron supplements is 7-27 mg based on various factors like gender, age, and any prevalent health conditions.

Conclusion

Intake of improper amounts of these supplements is important to prevent the risk of any side effects. Consultation with a doctor for the appropriate dose to be consumed.

Other than supplements, maintaining hair hygiene is also important for healthy and vibrant hair. Some other basic measures may include eating healthy and getting a well-balanced diet, having an active lifestyle, drinking plenty of water, and reducing stress. These were 4 ultimate ways women can live more healthy and maintain overall wellness. The discussed points can not only be beneficial for women, but for men as well.
