Total Health Packs for Healthy Hair

hair shiny beautiful

It doesn’t matter if you are dealing with fatigue, mood, heart, or hair issues, looking and feeling great is not dependant on just one or two vitamins and minerals.  You can’t isolate one nutrient from the others and say, “just take this vitamin and that mineral”.

This can be a hard concept to grasp.  People want to know which specific vitamins are needed for their specific health concern.  But we need ALL of our essential nutrients for EVERY health issue. The only difference between nutrients in relationship to various health issues is that some nutrients have a more direct impact on a specific health issue and other nutrients have an indirect impact.

Can you imagine isolating the key ingredients from a cake recipe and baking with only those? How would the cake turn out?

I know our health is more serious that baking a cake, but sometimes a simple analogy can wake us up to the insanity of what we are doing or asking our bodies to do or do without. For your body to function optimally, it needs all essential nutrients.  PERIOD.

Healthy hair is dependent upon both blood quality and circulation, which in turn are dependent upon nutrition.  Even a partial deficiency of any nutrient can cause hair problems.

Think about your yard and garden.  If you want a lawn with nice green grass and a garden with pretty flowers, you have to maintain the soil underneath. Hair is the same.  In order to have healthy hair, you must feed it the proper nutrients from the inside.  Your hair needs all of the same nutrients that your body needs. These are all the ones that we have included in the Total Health Pack.

hair good and bad

Here are some of the nutrients that have the most impact on hair health.

Vitamin A: a deficiency of vitamin A may cause hair to become dull, dry and lusterless and eventually fall out.

Note: Each Total Heath Pack contains 5000 IU vitamin A

B vitamins: Biotin promotes healthy hair, prevents graying, and baldness. Hair loss occurs during stress or when the diet is inadequate in the B vitamins, especially B6, biotin, inositol, and folic acid

B6, biotin, inositol and folic acid are members of the B complex family.  There are 11 nutrients that belong to the B complex family. Not all 11 nutrients are actually B vitamins but they are grouped together because they are interrelated in function.

When taking the B vitamins it is important to take all of them together. In other words, you should not just take B6, biotin, inositol and folic acid, you should take the complete B complex family.

Note: All 11 B vitamins are included in the Total Health Pack

Vitamin C: One of vitamin C’s major functions is to help produce and maintain healthy collagen, the connective tissue found within hair follicles. Vitamin C is also a strong antioxidant and protects both the cells found within follicles and cells in nearby blood vessels.

Note:  There is 900 mg of calcium ascorbate and 180 mg of bioflavonoids in each Total Health Pack.

Vitamin E: is a nutrient that has an indirect affect on hair growth.  Vitamin E is necessary to provide good blood circulation to the scalp by increasing the uptake of oxygen.

Note: There is 400 IU of vitamin E (d’alpha tocopherol) in each Total Health Pack

MSM: (methyl-sulfonyl-methane): this is one of the most important nutrients to have a direct effect on the health of your hair.

MSM is a naturally occurring sulfur that is present in every cell of your body. MSM is not the odorous, inorganic sulfur that you find in hot springs, and it isn’t sulfa or sulfites, so you can’t be allergic to it.

MSM is a natural form of organic sulfur which helps to form the keratin that is required for healthy, strong hair and nails.

The shaft of the hair is made up of a three-layered structure. On the inside is the medulla. Surrounding the medulla is the cortex, the most fibrous part of the hair strand which contains mostly keratin and structural lipids. On the outside of the hair is the cuticle, consisting of dead skin cells which form a protective layer around the hair.

The life cycle of your hair consists of 3 phases: growing, resting, and shedding. Not only is sulfur a building block for your hair, it also has been shown to lengthen the growing phase of your hair. A longer growing phase (before resting and shedding) means longer hair.

Note: There is 1000 mg of MSM in each Total Health Pack

Omega 3: Studies published in many respected medical journals such as the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition and the British Journal of Nutrition found omega-3 was useful for treating varied conditions from Alzheimer’s disease, ADHD, atherosclerosis, depression, eczema, memory loss, migraine headaches to hair discoloration, thinning, and loss.

Lack of Omega 3 in the body often leads to dry or brittle hair. Fatty acids are the building blocks of cell membranes.  Omega 3’s are needed to maintain proper cell membrane health and to develop healthy hair follicle cell development.

Note: Each Total Health Pack contains EPA 180 mg and DHA 120 mg

Manganese: A deficiency may slow hair growth.

Note: There is 1 mg of manganese in the Total Health Pack

Zinc: is a trace mineral that plays a vital part in many bodily processes and functions such as in cell reproduction, hormonal balance, proper absorption of vitamins, and in protein synthesis. All these processes are vital for proper hair growth.

Note:  There is 5 mg of zinc citrate in the Total Health Pack

Selenium: (another trace mineral) along with zinc, can help your body properly utilize proteins and hormones to produce more hair.

Note: There is 50 mcg of selenium in the Total Health Pack

SUGGESTIONS: To maintain healthy hair growth I recommend taking one Total Health Pack per day. If your hair is dry, brittle or just lacks that healthy sheen, try one Total Health Pack twice per day.

WHAT ABOUT HAIR LOSS?

Hair loss in women may be caused by a hormone imbalance or subclinical low thyroid condition (meaning that you are experiencing low thyroid symptoms, but your blood work shows your thyroid function to be normal).

This subclinical low thyroid condition (also referred to as subclinical hypothyroidism) is usually preceded by Adrenal Fatigue.

When you are experiencing hair loss, Adrenal Fatigue is the first thing to check. You can read this Health Solutions article about Adrenal Fatigue http://hormonerollercoaster.com/category/health-solutions/adrenal-fatigue/

You can also learn about supporting your Adrenal Glands and your thyroid, as well as balancing your hormones in my book

Hair loss in women that occurs in cycles may be due to stress, diseases, surgery, childbirth, abortion, or discontinuance of oral contraceptives, or it can occur after menopause. Certain medicines can cause hair loss in both men and women. They include antibiotics such as penicillin, sulfonamides, and mycin, the hyperthyroid drug carbimazole, and the anticoagulant drug heparin.

Men with the start of male pattern baldness should follow the recommended protocol outlined in the article “Total Health Packs for Prostate Health”, to read this article  GO HERE.
