What causes gray hair ?




Developing gray hair is a real phenomenon. It is a reflection that something else is going on in your system. Stress and family genetics play a role in gray hair. Normal aging is the biggest culprit. Your lifestyle, ethnicity and stress also contributes to developing gray hair.

Melanin is the pigment that gives human hair its color. Melanin is derived from the amino acid tyrosine. In addition to tyrosine, Iron, copper, zinc, vitamin B12 are essential. A lack of even one of these nutrients impairs melanin production. The best nutritional support is to ensure adequate iron, zinc, copper, vitamin B12, and protein. In addition to eating healthy I supplement with the following iron, zinc and B12 supplements to slow down gray hair. I also add biotin to my hair care regimen to promote new hair growth.
