Healthy hair: do care! I know, I said that totally wrong but my students always reveal my bad quoting of their pop culture terms. If you don’t have teenagers in your life to point out your flaws, your missing out! They keep me on point with the latest…..everything!
I tend to research B Vitamins on days when I don’t sleep well. It takes longer because my fingers are dragging from exhaustion but B vitamins are partly responsible for your energy.
My first research on B vitamins was when my iron anemia was in hyper-drive and when I was exhausted from not absorbing, wait for it…………..my vitamins!!!!
Just because you take a pill vitamin doesn’t mean you absorb it. In fact, if you have any health condition where food does a disappearing act when it hits your mouth, you will do best by eating vitamin rich food.
What can B Vitamins do for you?
I know, your wondering how these vitamins affect your hair. Hair growth has many different components to making it work. B6 helps regulate hormones & can in turn protect from hair loss. B12 helps to prevent anemia which was a major cause for my hair loss.
Pssssst, don’t forget to copy down your vitamin A shopping list here & vitamin C & D shopping list from here!
So, what you came here for. Here’s the the top food by Dr Axe for each B vitamin I’ve talked about.
- Turkey Breast
- Grass-fed Beef (B6 & B12)
- Chicken Breast
- Pistachios (I just grab these when I go into a convenience store)
- Tuna (B6 & B12)
- Pinto Beans (gassy people back off, not too much or your spouse might leave)
- Avocados (oh yum!)
- Sunflower Seeds (a summa time fave)
Beef liver(It’s the highest B12 but I won’t eat this)
- Raw Cheese
- Cottage Cheese
- Raw Milk
Hint: Pay close attention to nutrition facts so that you can gauge if you are meeting your daily value of B Vitamins. If you can’t find the nutrition facts, Google it!
If your like me and don’t like drinking milk, add milk to your morning Nutriblast! It gives it a smooth consistency and you don’t have to choke it down by itself. You can add most things you don’t enjoy veggie, fruit, nut or liquid wise and not be able to tell its in there.
