Hair loss can be caused by a lot of different things, including age, illness, poor nutrition, etc. You may know that consuming foods rich in vitamins and protein can help prevent hair loss, but did you know that eating foods with silica can do that as well?
Silica is a trace mineral, and though your body just needs a little amount of it, that tiny amount is necessary for your overall health, including that of your scalp and hair. What silica does is strengthen the inner wall of your blood vessels and enhance blood circulation, which means nutrients can get to where they are needed more efficiently. And with better health, thick, shiny, bouncy and beautiful hair follows.
Examples of foods that contain silica includes beer, carrots, coffee, iceberg lettuce, mineral water and whole grains. Do not consume raw silica in any of its forms without consulting your doctor.
