Niacin

When looking to improve hair growth, it helps to be sure that a person has plenty of vitamins in one’s diet. One of the best vitamins to use is Niacin. This vitamin, which is also known as Vitamin B3, is helpful in that it works to promote hair growth.

Niacin Improves Blood Circulation
In order for hair to be able to grow properly the blood in one’s scalp will need to be healthy. Niacin can work to help with improving blood circulation in that it works to help with expanding capillaries and vessels around the scalp. When this is done it will be easier for blood to be able to flow along the scalp in a healthy manner. As a result of this, hair growth can be properly stimulated.

Niacin Can Lower Cholesterol Levels
Cholesterol is known for being a harmful material in the body in that it can clog up arteries. This is something that should be considered in the scalp when it comes to hair growth. When cholesterol is present in the scalp not only will blood have a hard time moving around but the cholesterol will convert into enzymes that are known to inhibit hair growth.

The enzymes that the cholesterol can convert into are 5-alpha reductase enzymes. These are harmful enzymes to the hair in that when these enzymes are produced at an excessive rate hair loss can occur. This is due to how hair follicles will shrink in their sizes.

What Foods Contain Niacin?
One of the best things that can be done to help with stimulating hair growth and to prevent loss comes from having a diet that is rich in niacin. The most common types of foods are ones that come from animal sources. For example, lean red meat is a good source of niacin to use. Fish and dairy products that come from animals can also be used.

A variety of vegetables are also ones that are rich in niacin. Green leafy vegetables like lettuce and cabbage are some of the best things that a person can use. Celery, carrots and turnips can also be used as a means of getting plenty of niacin in one’s diet.

Overall, it will help to get plenty of niacin in one’s diet. Niacin is something that can work to help with getting hair growth to be properly stimulated. It also works to make sure that cholesterol that can stop hair growth can be avoided.
