Probiotics and Hair Growth
I must be honest and say that I have been through the most when it comes to dealing with an unhealthy gut. If my diet is not as it should be, it surely reflects and makes me miserable. I now incorporate natural ways to support my gut health and give natural relief.
Why is gut health important?
Our digestive tract plays a major role in the detoxing and immunity of the body. If your gut health is not good, other complications may arise like constipation, bloating, cramping, fatigue and decrease in mental clarity.
If there is an imbalance in the immune system of the body, this makes us vulnerable to the many toxins we come into contact with daily. Diseases can begin to manifest in the body.
What does probiotics have to do with hair growth?
Our gut consists of good bacteria and bad. We experience problems when there is an imbalance and hair loss can be a result. If the gut is healthy, the blood in our body will be cleaner and this blood nourishes our hair follicles.
Full course antibiotics can kill the good and bad bacteria in your gut. If you are prescribed antibiotics, you can incorporate probiotics into your diet to support a healthy gut. It can take up to a year for our gut to return to good health without taking probiotics, so it is a plus to support our health now. Toxins accumulate in our gut and over time you may experience symptoms such as fatigue, nausea and most of all, for me, an alteration of mental clarity.
Hair loss is largely influenced by your diet, lifestyle, and environment. Hair follicles that are subjected to malnutrition, inflammation, and environmental pollutants cannot sustain hair growth activity and, as a result, die off.
Probiotics encourage healthy flora in the gut and this improves health. Your body will be able to ward off toxins and other conditions that could result in hair loss. Probiotics can increase hair growth and thicken hair. They also have a positive effect on your blood pH levels, thereby resulting in a healthy shine.
Which probiotic is best?
The most commonly used probiotic in modern studies is lactobacillus. When choosing a probiotic supplement, make sure that is the primary strain. You can consume probiotics by supplementing with capsules, consuming foods with live cultures such as yogurt and drinking probiotic drinks.
We should take preventative measures internally to support healthy growing hair!
