Diets that are lacking in iron, iodine, protein and B vitamins combined with poor digestion and stress can lead to poor hair quality and quantity. Supplementing your diet with hair complex, rich in millet, stinging nettle and brewers yeast, may help you on the road to healthier hair.
Millet has been used as a food for many years and is a staple for many cultures such as the Hunzakuts who live in the mountainous Hunza Valley in Pakistan. The people there are known for their luxuriant hair and their excellent health. Millet is a good source of silicon, an essential trace element for strong hair structure. It also contains protein which is important for providing the keratin of which hair is mostly made, and magnesium which counters stress. It contains small amounts of iodine and B vitamins such as pantothenic acid which contributes to hair quality.
