LETS GROW HAIR: WITH SWEET POTATOES?




I love researching, especially topics like growing hair afterall it is the #1 question I am asked on a regular basis. So far we've discovered, Avocado oil, Drinking water and Biotin VS. Skin Hair & Nail supliments aid in the quest to lengthin our locks for this I've discovered you can also eat your way to natural healthy hair growth. 

I love eating and in my last post check it out here if you haven't "Working out is hard to do" I'm going to start on a fitness journey and from what I hear abs are made in the kitchen and sweet potatoes/yams are one of the main ingredients on the menu! Now I've learned that they help grow hair and give you fabulous skin.

The how, what, when and why:

Beta-carotene in foods is converted to vitamin A in the body, and vitamin A is necessary for all cell growth, including hair. 

A deficiency can lead to dry, dull, lifeless hair and dry skin, which can flake off into dandruff. Be aware that you can have too much of a good thing when it comes to vitamin A: Too much can cause hair loss. Because, of this risk instead of taking vitamin A why not add beta-carotene-rich foods like sweet potatoes to your diet here are some other great additions you may already eat things like carrots, kale, butternut squash, cantaloupe, dark green lettuces, asparagus, and pumpkin. Follow my pinterest board "Yummie in our Tummies" to find some great recipies showing off these hair growing ingredients 

If you should choose to take a multivitamin which I do, check the label to make sure that your brand supplies no more than 50 percent DV of vitamin A in the form of retinol. Retinol is listed on supplement labels as palmitate or acetate, and should never exceed 2,000 IU. The other 50 percent or more should come in the form of beta-carotene (or carotenoids), which is converted to vitamin A only as we need it. (Source)
