I started noticing the first signs of grey hairs in my late thirties, for some it’s earlier and for some later. No matter when it happens it can be a bit of a shock! That powerful feeling of youthful invincibility that we once had is destroyed in flash by the horror of just one singular grey hair. A sign, more so than any other for men, that we are entering a new phase!
Hair colour is produced by pigment cells called melanocytes within our hair follicles. Hair does not stay the same colour throughout our life and as these melanocytes die off so your colour changes, that’s why our colour fades as we age. This keeps going until there are none left at all and your hair is completely white.
When men begin to show a slight greying at the temples which continues on to a full head of salt and pepper or completely grey hair adjectives such as distinguished, dignified, but still handsome are used to describe the look. For many this is an acceptable part of the ageing process but for others who maybe feel this is premature or that it just doesn’t suit them, they may want to delay the onset of anymore grey hairs.
Stress and diet play a huge factor of course but here are a few simple supplements that can help if like the majority of us your busy life means that you find it hard to manage your stress and diet.
The following is a list of supplements to help prevent more of those grey hairs.
Vitamin B-6 and B-12 are two of the Complex-B vitamins that aid in healthy skin and hair. B-6 may help restore hair to its original colour following an illness or deficiency. Marmite is a great source of both these vitamins and great for vegetarians.
Para-Amino benzoic Acid (PABA) and Pantothenic Acid (vitamin B5) are part of the family of B-complex vitamins. Both of these vitamins are available at health food stores and pharmacies. Use them to postpone the onset of greying. It is reported that when Pantothenic Acid and Folic acid are taken together it helps reverse greying by taking the hair back to its original colour. PABA can be found in bran and yoghurt.
Inositol, a substance found naturally in the human body, may encourage the growth and overall health of hair. Beans, Citrus fruits and whole grain breads are high in Inositol.
Biotin produces keratin which is a major component of hair and nails. A good quality biotin supplement will provide all you need. Eggs and Almonds are both good sources.
Niacin contributes to scalp circulation which in turn nourishes the hair follicles. Turkey amd peanuts are both good sources.
Copper may enhance the production of Melanin. Shellfish, dark chocolate and dried apricots are all good sources of copper.
Horsetail is good for helping break down hydrogen peroxide and the possible reversing of grey hair. Horsetail is a natural herbal supplement, rich in Silica and must be taken as a supplement.
So there are a few suggestions to help your system out when you see unwelcome grey hairs.
These supplements can never stop your hair greying eventually but they may help slow it down. A healthy diet is best but by boosting certain essential nutrients that you may be lacking it will give your hair a boost and slow down the greying process.
