Which Vitamin Deficiency Causes Hair Loss: What You Need To Know

2-minute read

Like all your bodily organs, your hair needs vitamins to function properly and thrive. Without getting these vitamins and nutrients, your hair quality could suffer.

But which vitamins are the ones you need to get enough of to make sure your hair stays strong? And how can you ensure that you get enough of these vitamins?

Here we will explore the nutrients your hair needs and help point you in the right direction to give your hair what it needs.

Which vitamins are important for your hair?

Regular consumption of healthy food is an important part of our lives. It keeps our immune system strong to help fight off illnesses and maintains the regular function of all our organs. This necessity also applies to our hair.

Vitamin B7, also known as Biotin, is widely considered one of the most important vitamins to support hair growth. All the current signs suggest that Biotin contributes positively to the growth of hair and nails. However, it’s important to remember that this vitamin is in no way a cure for hair loss, but it can work towards maintaining the strength of your strands.

Researchers believe that sufficient levels of Vitamin D are important to our hair as well. Vitamin D can help stimulate hair follicle growth, which means that if you’re not receiving enough of it, you may well start to experience hair loss. 

Then there is another B Vitamin, this time B12. Again, the studies conducted aren’t conclusive, but many believe Vitamin B12 is crucial to the state of your hair too because of its links to anaemia and other conditions concerning red blood cells, thus affecting our hair.

What can be done to get these vitamins?

A great way to get your supply of Vitamin D is through sunlight, although this has some geographical restrictions for some. Consider a supplement if you believe you aren’t getting enough of this vitamin.

One supplement you can access through the Sons website is Biotin, which helps you manage and maintain strong hair. It is sold individually or as part of the Full Works package, depending on the severity of your hair loss and your circumstances. Its effectiveness at improving the rate of growth of your hair appears to be strong and will do you no harm in your bid to keep your hair healthy.

Meat, green vegetables, and grains are fantastic sources of Vitamin B12 that will not only give your hair follicles the vitamins they need but also provide you with more energy generally.
