Thinning hair and hair loss can be devastating, whether caused by heredity, diet, stress, pregnancy or medical treatment. For most of us, our hair color, length and style is an essential part of our self-image, so losing it can greatly affect our confidence and self-esteem. While medical procedures to restore hair loss are available, these can be expensive and, in some cases, risky. Instead, many people opt for hair growth supplements. Vitamins and nutrients that promote hair growth include vitamins A and E, Niacin, Folic Acid, Biotin and Zinc. While these supplements can be found in many foods, it’s important to consume each in the appropriate quantities to prevent further hair loss. Choose from a variety of vitamin-rich formulas to help you restore stronger, thicker, healthier hair. “Multi-tasking” supplements are also available to nourish hair, skin and nails in one fell swoop. And remember to be patient, as visible results to promote hair restoration and growth can take up to several months.
