Hair Growth Nutrients and how to send them to Your Scalp!
Hair growth nutrients are quite simply the best way to feed your hair and thus promote new hair growth. Not only are you going to give your hair the exact nutrients it needs to grow faster, thicker, longer and also healthier; you’re also going to deliver those growth nutrients straight to your hair in high doses, every day, all day. These vitamins for hair growth are great for hair loss in women as well as men.
Niacin is a B vitamin that makes your blood flush to your skin which consequently in turn we are going to use to flush nutrients to your scalp. I mean one of the keys to hair growth is good blood circulation in your scalp and thus a strong blood supply to the hair follicles. Eventually hair loss sufferers have very weak blood supply to their hair follicles. Further we are going to force blood and hair growth nutrients into the neglected capillaries that connect to the hair follicles we can do a lot of good towards reactivating dormant follicles – and completely reinvigorating your scalp and hair. Buy a niacin supplement in 50mg tablets.
Please note: Select a standard Niacin (vitamin B3) supplement, not a “No Flush” Niacin supplement. We need the flushing effect to help deliver nutrients to your hair.
L-Carnitine improves bone mass, reduces body fat, improves fertility, increases energy and thus is a powerful antioxidant. At the same time it’s a great hair growth nutrient that is incredibly good for you and has many great benefits. We’re going to use it for its amazing ability to stimulate hair growth, which was proven in a 2007 study (Foitzik K, et al). You can use either the standard L-carnitine supplement or the acetylated derivative of L-carnitine.
In addition, You will also need a source of potassium; this mineral improves the delivery and use of the Lcarnitine in the hair follicles. Here is a selection of foods you could use (you only need one of these):
- Half a banana
- One serving of spinach
- Handful of dried apricots
- One serving of natural yoghurt
- An avocado
- One serving of mushrooms
How to use the Niacin and L-Carnitine
- Every morning on an empty stomach drink half a glass of water and take 500mg of L-carnitine.
- Pour half a glass of juice or smoothie, or prepare your high potassium food to eat.
- Now eat the food or drink the juice and swallow the 50 mg niacin. TIP – leave 10-20 mins between having the L-carnitine and the niacin; this will give your body more time to digest the L-carnitine. 10 – 20 minutes after taking the niacin you may feel your skin become hot and itch; don’t worry this is expected and will not last.
Please note: L-carnitine causes fat to burn faster. If you have a very low body fat index (in other words you’re very thin), consider increasing your intake of carbohydrates to compensate. If on the other hand you want to lose weight, the L-carnitine may help you achieve your weight loss goals.
How Long Should you Take L-Carnitine and Niacin?
L-Carnitine is used to reactivate dormant hair follicles and promote hair growth however, after six months discontinue use of L-Carnitine and niacin. However, if you want to give your hair an additional boost, take a one month break and then complete another six month course of L-Carnitine and niacin to reactivate more dormant hair follicles. You do not need to take this supplement for the rest of your life.
The Hair Growth Smoothie
The Hair Growth Smoothie contains some special natural ingredients that support hair growth. More importantly, drink the Hair Growth Smoothie on an empty stomach three times a week. Either have this for breakfast or have it at a time of day at least 2 hours before or after eating.
Ingredients per large glass
- Half glass of watermelon or pink grapefruit juice
- Make up the remaining volume with low sugar blended berries such as blueberries, strawberries and raspberries
- 2 tablespoons of organic cold pressed EFA oil
- Optionally add one raw egg yolk
Always choose low sugar fruits for your smoothie. Here are some good examples of low sugar fruits:
- Casaba Melon
- Honeydew melons
Hair Growth Smoothie Ingredients
The purpose of using the watermelon (or pink grapefruit) is for the chemical ‘citrulline‘, which increases the amino acid arginine in the body. Eventually this increases nitrogen in the blood, which has many benefits – the main one being improved blood circulation. In fact, they have been described as ‘natural Viagra’ because of their effect of increasing blood circulation to the body’s extremities.
2. EFA Oil Blend
Essential Fatty Acids, or EFAs, are extremely beneficial for your health and thus EFAs will help your body grow something called ‘prostaglandins‘, which regulate hormonal balance in your body. This is key for hair growth because healthy, balanced hormones will help reduce the potential impact of androgenic alopecia (Male Pattern Baldness).
The best EFA oil blend products to buy are ones that contain borage seed oil, hemp seed oil, evening primrose oil, sunflower seed oil and pumpkin seed oil. Secondly try to purchase a blend with a ratio of 2:1:1 of omega 3, 6 and 9. Always make sure you buy cold pressed EFA oil.
3. Organic cold pressed Extra virgin coconut oil
Before or after drinking the smoothie, eat a tablespoon of organic cold pressed extra virgin coconut oil. The coconut oil helps provide stability for the digestion of the essential fatty acids, which are molecularly unstable. In addition; Coconut oil also has many other health benefits and Incidentally, despite being high in fat is often cited as a health food that aids weight loss.
Key Amino Acids for Increasing Hair Growth
N-Acetyl Cysteine (NAC) – Cysteine
When used correctly, cysteine increases hair growth, hair density and improves hair health and texture. Actually, it’s also good for your liver and your immune system. To view more of the benefits of cysteine, read this Life Extension Magazine article.
In the case of cysteine supplementation, it’s better to use the acetylated derivative, which is called N-Acetyl-Cysteine (NAC). Furthermore; NAC supplements are more easily used by the body than L-Cysteine supplements. Take 600mg of N-Acetyl Cysteine (NAC) and 1000 mg of L-taurine after you’ve had your breakfast.
is an amino acid that helps make your body use the NAC for hair growth rather than for energy. However, in addition to improving the absorption of NAC, taurine is also believed to reduce fibrosis, which may reduce hair follicle miniaturization significantly. Consequently, It also protects the hair follicle. To learn more, consequently read this journal produced by L’Oreal, France (2006) – http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/18489269.
**An important note about hair growth nutrition’s supplementation**
Please consult your doctor before beginning any supplementation program or consuming any hair growth nutrients. Supplements can interact with medication. Furthermore, If you are taking any kind of medication it is especially important that you consult your doctor before beginning a supplementation program. Actually, If you’re already applying these instructions, so far you’re already using four new supplements and EFA oil. These are all very safe supplements because they are natural single nutrients, that we are using for a specific purpose. However, please take your time and try to incorporate these changes into your life gradually as much as possible.
Lysine is an amino acid that has been clinically proven to increase the rate of hair growth and is used all around the world by hair loss clinics. Take the L-lysine between lunch and dinner (500 mg).
L-Arginine is the final amino acid that we will need for amino acid supplementation. Therefore, for two days of the week (for example on the weekend), stop taking the lysine and take L-arginine instead. (500 mg x 2) and avoid using lysine on those days.
How Long Should you Take These Supplements For?
The Hair Growth Nutrients are just that – a supplement to your diet – and thus not a replacement for healthy foods. For now, take these supplements for six months to give your hair a boost. Furthermore, Consult your doctor before beginning a supplement program. Finally do not take supplements if you are pregnant, breast feeding or on medication.
