Promoting healthy hair growth can be as simple as exercising, and eating the right type of foods. When some people have issues with growing their hair, their diet is the first thing that they should take into consideration to determine if they need to alter their eating habits.

Multi-Million dollar Industry

As you probably already know, the distribution of vitamins is a multi-million dollar industry and the demand for good vitamins is something that will never phase out. People are always looking for the next best vitamin to take for optimal health. As you read along, you will learn more about which vitamin supplements are best to take to achieve the best hair growth results.

By the time you are done reading, you’ll have a better idea of what vitamin you should take for healthy hair growth.

Three main vitamins for healthy hair

When looking for the right vitamins to take for healthy hair growth, you should look for these 3 main types:

  • Biotin
  • B Complex
  • Saw Palmetto

These three vitamin types are known for giving you a head start in helping you to see the hair growth results that you truly desire.

If you take these vitamins consistently, you will quickly see desirable hair growth results. Yes, your hair will grow, but it will not be overnight. While taking your vitamins you’ll want to also make sure that you eat a diet rich in protein as it is good for strong, stable hair growth.


Hold on, we’re not done yet! Vitamins alone will not help you with achieving the results of healthy hair. As mentioned in the beginning of the article you also need to make sure that you are eating right as well as getting plenty of exercise. Many people might be confused as to how exercise can help them gain better hair growth results. Well to start, exercise helps your body maintain the correct flow of blood and a good blood flow stimulates the pours or the roots of your hair which gives you better growth. Not only will your better blood flow help your hair to grow better, but exercising will decrease stress. Stress is bad for the hair which is why a lot of people experience breakage. If you can be stress free then that makes way for more successful hair growth.

Medication can cause hair breakage

If you’ve noticed that you have been recently having issues with hair breakage, stop and think about what medications you are taking. Believe it or not, there are prescription drugs that can cause hair breakage or loss.

It is in your best interest to look up the side effects of prescription drugs. You can also ask your pharmacist or doctor if certain medication can cause hair breakage. If you believe that your medication is causing hair breakage, then you might want to talk to your doctor about having your medication changed. It simply might be the best thing to do for healthy hair and as well as for your overall health.
