The epitome of manifested physical health is a long, thick mane of hair. From children’s stories about magical locks to the rows of colourful hair treatment bottles on shelves and in stores, we are taught very early on that hair is important and needs to be cared for! Unfortunately, not all of us are blessed with thick hair that grows quickly. A lot of this is determined by genetics and environmental factors, but interestingly enough your hair growth and health can be directly influenced by your gut!
The gut microbiome not only supports the production of some of the nutrients needed for growing hair, it also can regulate the hormones that control the transition between the anagen, catagen, and telogen phases (the growth and maturation of hair and the activity of the hair follicles that produce individual hairs) can even maintain conditions in your body that favor healthy hair. Any disturbance in the digestive system has the potential to cause a deficiency in the nutrients your body needs in order to grow hair. Hair loss may be prevented with proper care for gut flora health.
WHERE IT STARTS
We now know that when the microbiome on our skin gets out of balance, it can cause or aggravate scalp conditions such as eczema and psoriasis, rough hair, hair breakage, and reduced hair shine. Additionally, poor scalp health associated with scalp conditions may also lead to premature hair loss! The microbiome has been shown to directly affect the health of the scalp. Make sure include these foods into your diet order to keep your scalp healthy so that it can serve as a foundation for healthy hair:
✔ Salmon for Shine
✔ Grow With Greek Yogurt
✔ Spinach to Battle Brittle Hair
✔ Guava to Prevent Breakage
✔ Lean Poultry for Thickness
✔ Sweet Potatoes to Fight Dull Locks
✔ Cinnamon for Circulation
REAL, SUSTAINABLE GUT HEALTH
It’s not always realistic to follow a strict diet or limit foods that don’t serve the purpose of hair growth, but what is realistic is to implement Klean into your daily self-care routine.
Evidence that suggests that the use of probiotics may help to stimulate the growth phase of the hair growth cycle. Now, that does not mean it will cause your hair to grow rapidly, but it may help to encourage growth in those who may have a limited amount of routine growth.
Lactobacilli probiotic strains can stimulate hair growth and help support the scalp, promoting the body's ability to grow thick, amazing hair. Probiotics also support your hair by reducing gut stress and improving gut function, therefore helping reduce stress-related hair loss. Klean’s Nourish Probiotics not only contains this specific strain of probiotics but is a 20 billion spore blend, 4 times stronger than most generic probiotics you can find at the pharmacy.
With Klean’s Nourish Probiotics, you not only get to experience significantly enhanced hair counts and hair thickness but a nourished and balanced gut, which in turn also clears skin and strengthens nails. The benefits are truly endless. Give your body what it needs to thrive!
