Vitamin C: Its Benefits for Your Hair & Scalp

In this world there are so many options to choose from in regards to what vitamins and supplements to take. Everyone wants to live a healthy lifestyle. As part of the new lifestyle, people want to know which vitamins they should be taking for optimal health and wellness. One of the vitamins I highly recommend for your health journey is Vitamin C.

Vitamin C is required for the proper development and function of the body. It helps the body absorb nutrients properly, it helps the body make collagen–a protein that helps support tendons, ligaments and blood vessels and keeps the skin and other organs together–and improves hair growth as well as fight hair disorders.  People who consume recommended dosage of vitamin C see physical improvement in:

Hair Growth & Thickness: Hair is free of dryness and split ends. (Vitamin C helps promote strong thick hair, improves the blood circulation, and strengthens and repairs the capillaries).

Healthy Scalp: Scalp is minimized of dandruff and dry flaky skin (Vitamin C helps fight the bacteria on the scalp, dryness, and itchiness).

Hair Loss: Stops hair loss and encourages more hair growth since the adrenal glands are the key to maintain proper hormonal balance (Vitamin C reverses the adrenal gland fatigue).

Hair & Scalp Disorders: treats and prevents a variety of hair disorders (alopecia, baldness, etc.), which can damage the hair follicles and affect the normal growth of hair (Vitamin C is an essential nutrient for damaged hair).

The recommended maximum dosage of Vitamin C is 2,000 mg daily. Taking more than 2,000 mg is unsafe and you will risk possible side effects in your body. If you are unsure of the proper dosage needed for your body’s overall healthy hair and internal wellness, follow up with your physician or nutritionist at your next visit.  Taking vitamins and supplements is not for everybody. So do not feel pressured. In fact, it’s recommended that you consume your Vitamin C from a diet high in fruits and vegetables. The more fruits and vegetables you can consume to get your daily vitamins, the less demand there will be for you to take vitamins and supplements.

The U.S. Dietary Guidelines for Americans recommends five to nine servings of fruits and vegetables daily to ensure you are getting an adequate amount of vitamin C and other vitamins and minerals. Vitamin C is found in a variety of foods. Fruits great for Vitamin C are: strawberries, cantaloupes, mango, strawberries, blueberries, papaya, oranges, kiwi, pineapples, oranges, grapefruit, and their juices. Vegetables good for Vitamin C are red and green peppers, broccoli, baked potatoes, tomatoes, cauliflower, turnip greens, spinach, and winter squashes. (Please be mindful that this list of fruits and vegetables is not all-inclusive.)
