HAIR SCIENCE: OMEGA 3’S
While almost everyone at this point knows that essential fatty acids such as omega 3 are important to maintain your health…what you might NOT know is why!
WHAT OMEGA 3 DOES
While hair is composed primarily of keratin protein, omega 3 fatty acids are essential to nourish the all-important follicles, encouraging healthy hair growth that is both strong and shiny from the outset. They may also help prevent inflammation that can lead to hair loss, dandruff and other scalp conditions.
OMEGA 3 DEFICINECY
A deficiency in omega 3 is said to be dry, lackluster and brittle hair and nails. Over time, a deficiency in omega 3 fatty acids can even lead to hair loss. Recent studies have further shown that conditions such as dandruff and eczema of the scalp may also be related to a lack of omega 3 fats. As important as strong and shiny hair may be to us, it is actually pretty low down on the body’s list of priorities. Well before the visible signs of deficiency are seen, key areas of the body such as brain function, cell formation and inflammation prevention have already been comprised as they all rely on omega 3’s fatty acids.
