Thiamine (Vitamin B1) for Healthy Hair

You might know by now that most B-complex vitamins are great and essential for healthy hair after reading how our diet plays an important part for our hair here. We'll take a closer look at one of it - Vitamin B1, also known as thiamine.

If you want strong and healthy hair, this is one of the go-to nutrient.

Metabolism and Our Hair

As we age, our bodies' metabolism naturally slows down naturally and so does our hair growth.

Most of us may have heard of metabolism especially if we have come across some weight management products and ads.

Metabolism is a biological process where our cells convert the food we eat into the energy it needs to function in circulating, repairing and growing. When metabolism is affected, it affects how optimally the cells function.

Hair growth can be affected when the hair follicles' is not functioning optimally.

How Thiamine Helps Healthy Hair

Deficiency in thiamine can lead to fatigue, muscle weakness, nerve damage and also hair loss. Here are some of the benefits of thiamine.

Improved Metabolism

Thiamine is essential for efficient metabolism. It helps to improve metabolism efficiently which in turn ensures that your cells function properly and grow optimally, making sure that our scalp and hair stays healthy.

Combat Brittle Hair

When circulation is affected, it may result in our scalp and hair not getting sufficient nutrients and moisture to stay healthy.

Thiamine also helps prevent our blood vessels from constricting, leading to better circulation of essential nutrients to our scalp and follicles.

Getting Rid of the Free Radicals

Thiamine also possesses excellent antioxidant properties, keeping the free radicals at bay and protecting our hair from accumulated damage.

Stress Relief Management

We previously explored how stress can affect your hair here. When we are affected by stress for prolonged periods, our cortisol levels are constantly high. This stress hormone, cortisol, is known to affect our hair follicles' function and regulation, leading to inflammation.

Some studies have shown that thiamine can provide stress relief by reducing cortisol levels and naturally calms our adrenal glands.

Sources of Thiamine

Before you consider jumping onto supplements, here are some of the best natural sources to derive thiamine; nuts, soy, cereal, eggs, lean meats and carrots.
