Moringa For Healthy Hair

The overall condition of our body is reflected by appearance of our hair. If the body is healthy and well-nourished, the hair will be shining glory. If there are any health problems or nutritional deficiencies, the hair may stop growing or show damage or become brittle. Daily intake of vitamins and minerals play a huge role in keeping the hair healthy. Certain vitamins, minerals and amino-acids are crucial to the metabolic pathways involved in keratin protein (hair) metabolism.
Moringa leaves obtained from Moringa oleifera tree, as a supplement provide 17 times the calcium in milk, 15 times the potassium in banana, 4 times the Vitamin A in carrot, 25 times the iron in spinach and half time the Vitamin C content in orange. The nutrients present in Moringa are of high biological value as it is easily absorbed by the body compare to synthetic supplements.

Hair growth requires optimal delivery of oxygen and nutrients from the circulatory system to the hair follicle. Vitamin A is a key component for developing healthy cells, tissues in the body, and reducing hair loss. Additionally it works with silica and zinc to prevent drying and clogging of the sebaceous glands, the glands vital to producing sebum. Vitamin A deficiencies commonly cause thickening of the scalp, dry hair, and dandruff. Moringa with its high vitamin A content helps in the hair growth and maintenance. Zinc stimulates hair growth by enhancing immune function. Zinc deficiency will result in atrophy of the hair follicles as there is a marked impairment of DNA and protein synthesis where zinc influences the confirmation of nucleic acids.

Hair loss occurs when the diet is inadequate in the B vitamins - especially B6, biotin, inositol and folic acid. Vitamin E is an antioxidant that stimulates the scalp by increasing blood circulation. An increase in blood circulation makes more nutrients available to the hair follicles so they can grow stronger, healthier hair. Vitamin C aids in improving scalp circulation. It is important to maintain capillaries that carry blood to the follicles. Moringa contains these nutrients needed for the healthy hair.

Moringa has Vitamin A, Vitamin B1, Vitamin B2, Vitamin B3, Vitamin B6, Vitamin B7, Vitamin C, Vitamin D, Vitamin E and Vitamin K. The list of Minerals present in Moringa is abundant and few of the main minerals include Calcium, Copper, Iron, Potassium, Magnesium, Manganese and Zinc. Research has shown that in our hurry up world of fast food, and extreme work schedules we have developed extraordinarily poor eating habits. This extremely poor diet affecting our general health and energy levels and makes our fingernails weaker and our hair thinner and far less healthier.
