What vitamin is good for men's hair?

There are a huge variety of vitamins out there and some of them have the potential to give the hair on your head a boost. If you’re currently using our male hair loss treatment, the importance of sustaining the hair you already have shouldn’t be understated. Fortunately, a lot of the vitamins that could improve the quality of your hair are easy to find in a well-balanced, healthy diet. So - what vitamin is good for hair? Here are some examples:

Vitamin A

Every cell around your body requires vitamin A in order to grow, so there’s no doubt that vitamin A plays a crucial role in the structure of your hair. In fact, hairs are the quickest growing tissue on your body. While deficiency is rare, some studies have shown that vitamin A deficiencies could lead to hair loss. Thankfully, it’s not difficult to find sources of vitamin A. From carrots to spinach to dairy products, the vitamin can be found across the dietary spectrum. 

Vitamin B7 (Biotin)

One of the most popular treatments for the promotion of healthy hair is Biotin, scientifically known as vitamin B7. While there is a lack of data regarding Biotin’s effectiveness in regrowing hair, the supplement has been shown to fortify and restructure existing hairs on your head. Biotin does this by improving the infrastructure of Keratin within your body, a basic protein that is crucial for the structure of hair, skin and nails. Biotin is also a part of our full works hair loss treatment plan and can be taken daily to reinforce your hair quality.

Vitamin C

As a powerful antioxidant, vitamin C plays an important role in protecting your hair against oxidative stress, often the result of free radicals entering the body. The role of vitamin C doesn’t stop there either - the vitamin also has a part to play in creating collagen, which is one of the building blocks for healthy hair. Vitamin C can be found in all sorts of foods, including strawberries, oranges and other sweet fruits.

Vitamin D

Unlike a lot of vitamins, vitamin D is one of the more common deficiencies that people develop. In fact, it’s thought that 30–40% of the UK population are below the threshold during the winter season, due to decreased sunlight and more time spent indoors. Studies have shown that a deficiency in vitamin D has also been linked with hair loss, so building up your body's daily dose of vitamin D should be a top priority. Your body creates vitamin D from the sun’s rays, but it can also be consumed in foods such as fatty fish and a variety of mushrooms.

While vitamin B7, otherwise known as Biotin, can be bought separately, the full works treatments combine all of our supplements and medications into one handy monthly package. Signing up for this treatment gives you the best chance of saving your hairline, on top of sustaining the hair you already have on your head.
