This article has been researched and written by Arelang Naturals® in-house writers.

Hairfall stress makes us all want to pull our hair out. Doesn't it? It is probably among the most stressful and disheartening things to witness. Hair falling out like nobody's business, your bathroom floor has fewer tiles than hair, and your pillow has the most natural cover you never asked for. It sounds funny, but is it?

How many strands is it okay to lose in a day?

Investigating the enigma of hair strands making their great escape from our scalps each day has become most of our favorite past times. But when should we worry? On an average day, we're all destined to part ways with approximately 50 to 100 precious strands, as they seek new beginnings elsewhere, dreaming of becoming wig-makers for mischievous squirrels or stylish nests for whimsical birds. If your hairbrush or hand collects this mere amount, rejoice because your hair is saying "We're off to pursue greater adventures!" You can happily embrace this inevitable hair fall. But anything more than this is a red flag. What causes more hair fall than what is normal?

The Role Of Vitamins, Minerals, and Nutrition

You would imagine all the topical treatments and hair oil would help combat hair fall. But as with everything, there is nothing better than quality nutrition to fix this. Remember, true beauty comes from the inside out.

Nutrition, vitamins, and minerals are huge precursors in the battle against hair fall. They are the trusted knights that protect your hair and scalp from all things scary. Essential vitamins and minerals support our overall well-being and hair growth, strength, and vitality. Here are some vitamins for hair fall and vitamins for hair growth that you need to know about:

  1. Vitamin A:

    This bad boy is all about keeping your scalp in tip-top shape and As are the perfect hair vitamins. It's like the secret weapon that helps create sebum, an oily substance that is like a natural hair conditioner. Do you know when you have oily scalps? That is the best thing to happen to you. Here's a tip. When you have an oily scalp and run into the shower to wash your hair, remember to massage all that oil from the scalp to the roots to nourish your hair and make it stronger. Too little vitamin A will make your scalp feel like a desert and will not support healthy hair growth. But watch out. Too much vitamin A is not the best thing to happen to you, it will lead to more hair loss. α-Carotene and β-carotene are provitamin A carotenoids that come from orange and yellow foods, along with some leafy greens and they can be converted in the body to vitamin A. So load up on carrots, mangos, papaya, pumpkins, sweet potatoes, spinach to give your scalp the Vitamin A boost it needs.

  2. B Vitamins:

    These are the ideal vitamins for hair growth, the hair growth gurus if you must. This group includes Biotin (B7), Niacin (B3), and Cobalamin (B12), and they're all about giving your hair the love it deserves. Biotin takes the spotlight with its reputation for making your hair follicles strong and unbreakable. It's like the best of proteins, building the very structure of your hair. Niacin and Cobalamin are second in line, teaming up to nourish your scalp and keep your hair healthy. These hair vitamins are must-haves, and to get your dose of these Bs, chow down on whole grains, eggs, nuts, and leafy greens. These power-packed foods are like the fuel your hair needs to grow and shine. If that's too much cud for you, then Replenish With Greens is just as amazingly nutritious and as close to the real thing in the smallest and cutest sugar-free gummy to provide the greenest greens that will give your hair the uplift it needs.

  3. Vitamin C:

    Vitamin C is a potent antioxidant that helps combat oxidative stress, which can contribute to hair loss. It also aids in collagen production, which (surprise surprise!) is also vital for maintaining hair strength and elasticity, not just skin. Additionally, vitamin C improves iron absorption, an essential mineral for healthy hair. Citrus fruits and colored fruits and veggies like strawberries, kiwis, berries, and bell peppers are excellent sources of vitamin C. A combination of Replenish With Greens and Replenish With Phytos gummies are perfect to stop your hair fall and for hair growth.

  4. Vitamin D:

    If you've been wondering which vitamin deficiency causes hair fall, vitamin D will always be on that list. This superstar and most understated nutrient has a vital role to play in the hair department. When your Vitamin D levels hit rock bottom, it can send your precious strands into a panic, leading to hair loss and thinning that'll make you go, "Oh no, not the hair!" While catching some rays is the best way to soak up this vitamin, you can also find it hanging out in fatty fish, fortified dairy products, and even those golden egg yolks.

  5. Iron:

    Iron deficiency, also known as anemia, is a common cause of hair loss. Iron helps deliver oxygen to the hair follicles and promotes growth and vitality. When the body lacks sufficient iron, it prioritizes essential functions over hair growth, leading to thinning and shedding. Iron-rich foods like lean meats, seafood, beans, and leafy greens into your diet to maintain optimal levels of vitamins for hair fall.

  6. Omega-3 Fatty Acids:

    Omega-3 fatty acids are essential fats that nourish hair follicles and promote scalp health. They help reduce inflammation, prevent dryness, and improve hair elasticity. Omega-3 fatty acids help produce natural oils that keep the scalp and hair hydrated. Fatty fish like salmon, chia seeds, flax seeds, and walnuts, are rich sources of omega-3 fatty acids. Rekindle For Women is a sugar-free dark chocolate supplement made of natural plant-based ingredients that helps manage hormone levels while also giving your body its ideal requirement of Omega-3 fatty acids.

Now that you know what vitamins you need, let's deep dive into the effects of vitamin deficiencies on your hair:

Vitamin deficiencies can have a profound impact on the health and appearance of our hair. Without an adequate supply of essential vitamins, our hair follicles, like all other functions, struggle to function optimally, leading to distressing consequences. For example, a deficiency in vitamin C can result in weakened hair shafts, making them prone to breakage and slow growth. Low vitamin D can hinder the hair follicles' ability to regenerate, potentially leading to thinning or hair loss. Vitamin E deficiency may lead to dryness and dullness, robbing the hair of its natural luster. Moreover, inadequate levels of hair vitamins like vitamin B7, or biotin, can make hair strands brittle, fragile, and more susceptible to splitting. A balanced intake of essential vitamins for hair loss and growth is crucial for maintaining vibrant, resilient hair, as deficiencies can contribute to a variety of undesirable hair conditions.

The combination of Caim by arelang’s Replenish with Greens and Replenish with Phytos gummies is ideal to ensure your hair and skin shine bright and stay healthy. The greens help boost your body's natural collagen production through cells called fibroblasts and the Replenish with Phytos help with boosting natural glutathione production.

These cells are the most active and are able to therefore produce an abundance of collagen, especially during the growth stages of our life - say about the age of 25 years. As we grow older, our bodies undergo various changes, including a decline in the number and activity of fibroblast cells. Some of these cells become dormant when not in use and are called fibrocytes. The active fibroblast cells now produce enough collagen that gives your body structural support, repairs cells, and tissues, and gives your body the ability to heal wounds etc. Quality, targeted nutrition through these gummies ensures fibroblast cells do not forget their role in the body and do not get dependent on external sources for collagen. The Replenish with Green gummies are made of the most potent plant-based extracts, that are rich in antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals that help stimulate your fibrocytes and kickstart natural collagen production to ensure better hair, skin, nails, and joint health.

Our body can naturally control oxidative stressors through antioxidants like glutathione which binds with free radicals and neutralizes them. Thanks to various factors, one mainly being a lack of good nutrition, the body cells become lazy to work and generate antioxidants to fight these demons. That is where Replenish with Phytos can help, especially with ingredients like lycopene, catechins, phycocyanin, and piperine. They help transport the right nutrients to enable the creation of glutathione which is a master antioxidant that your body is able to naturally produce. It helps take care of free radicals to prevent cell damage. It is the most powerful and versatile part of the body's self-generated antioxidants. Lack of nutrition that supports the body's production of glutathione will affect hair growth, skin, and overall vitality. These antioxidants are fighters that help tighten the pores of the scalp and strengthen the follicular hair filaments. All this in just 2 gummies a day.

Your hair, your mane, your shining glory! It needs protection and no one can protect it better than you. Always remember to nourish your hair with the right food, just as you would the rest of your body. Shampoos and topical treatments are secondary. Remember, good health starts on the inside.
