An estimated three-quarters of North American adults DON’T get enough Vitamin D in their diet. But if the increased risk of bone loss, weaker muscles, and potential cancer isn’t enough to scare you into adding more D, consider what this means for something much more noticeable – like your hair!
Experts tell us that Vitamin D absolutely can stimulate hair growth. Recent studies have shown that D helps increase nutrient metabolism in our follicles, so they pump out more healthy hair… And as a bonus, dermatologist Dr. Whitney Bowe says D also triggers follicles to produce more oil – which may sound like a perfect recipe for acne – but actually keeps our hair hydrated.
Bottom line: For healthier, younger-looking hair, stock up on more D-rich dairy products, or consider taking a vitamin D supplement.
