5 Vitamins & Nutrients To Boost Your Hair Growth

16 January, 2022

Most people want healthy and strong hair, and this usually becomes a focus for men and women as time goes by, when the consequences of age, hair products, heat tools, and hair dye start to be noticeable. Many men start struggling with hair loss at the age of 30; before thinking about undergoing  a hair transplant, they’ll try to find non-surgical alternatives to prevent it.




Among those alternatives are plenty of supplements that help with hair growth and strengthening. Here are the top 5 most effective vitamins and nutrients for hair growth in men:


When you think about vitamin C, you might immediately associate it with a strong immune system, but there’s also something about this vitamin that commonly isn’t said: vitamin C can boost iron absorption, which is one of the most important nutrients for your hair growth. 

You can find high vitamin C levels in fruits like oranges, grapefruit, berries, pineapple, strawberries, kiwi, and watermelon, as well as in vegetables like cauliflower, peppers, spinach, broccoli, and brussel sprouts.

Vitamin E can improve collagen and reduce oxidative stress in the scalp, which enhances hair growth. Studies have indicated that vitamin E can benefit blood circulation, which is linked to healthy hair growth. 

High vitamin E levels can be found in foods like almonds, hazelnuts, peanuts, avocado, salmon, mango, pumpkin seeds, pecans, apricots, blackberries, asparagus, and spinach.

Iron stimulates the production of hemoglobin, which is essential for hair growth as it carries oxygen to your hair roots.

Zinc repairs hair and contributes to the proper working of the oil glands around the follicles. This nutrient also inhibits the formation of steroids associated with male pattern baldness.

High levels of zinc can be found in almonds, chicken breast, yogurt, egg yolk, milk, pumpkin seeds, beef (steak), and cheese, as well as in seafood (prawns, crabs, lobster, oysters).

If you are taking vitamins and supplements, but want your hair to grow at a faster rate in areas like the crown or temples, then mesotherapy can be a great option for you! 

What Is Mesotherapy?

Mesotherapy is a non-surgical, minimally invasive procedure that consists in the application of painless microinjections of vitamins, antioxidants, and amino acids to improve the health, strength, and volume of your hair. The treatment is safe and quick (one session it’s usually completed in 20 to 30 minutes).
