Maintaining healthy, stronger hair as I age has been a top priority for me, and I’m thrilled to partner with HUM Nutrition to share a look at one of my favorite hair supplements. After experiencing hair loss due to stress and breakage with color treatments, I started trying biotin supplements to help with hair growth. I’ve tried several over the years, and the one I keep pending back to is the HUM Hair Sweet stronger hair, so this collab couldn’t be a better match for me!
HUM Hair Sweet Hair gummies come in two sizes, a 60-bottle, and a 14-mini bottle. As someone with a sensitive stomach, I like that they are easy to eat anytime during the day—a day without food. Your mileage may vary depending on which ingredients work well for your body.
These Contain: Stronger Hair
- Biotin, folic acid, and vitamin B-12 help new hair growth by promoting healthy cell growth
- PABA para-aminobenzoic acid helps maintain healthy, natural hair color by increasing hair pigment production (believed to help prevent gray hair)
- Zinc helps reduce hair loss by repairing growth tissue and is also great for boosting immunity.
- The fo-Ti extract is for scalp health
According to HUM, you can expect results in 4-8 weeks. I notice stronger, healthier hair around week 4 of daily use (take two daily). After using them, I lose less hair in the shower or the bath, the hair grows faster and healthier, and my natural shine is back. I highly recommend trying them!
Have you ever tried any of the HUM supplements? If yes, which ones? What were you thinking? Several of you have recommended that I try the Glow Sweet Glow (I just bought the mini of this one) or the Daily Cleanse. I have beauty zzz on my list to try and help me sleep.
Wild Fatty Fish Stronger Hair
Certain types of wild fish, such as salmon, mackerel, and sardines, are high in protein, vitamin D, and omega-3 fatty acids. Protein provides structure to hair follicles, keeping hair strong and reducing breakage.
Vitamin D deficiency does show to cause hair loss. Of course, we get the greatest of our vitamin D from the sun, but for those who live in colder climates or spend a lot of time outdoors, a supplement (such as HUM’s Here Comes the Sun) may be in order.
Oysters – Stronger Hair
Zinc-rich foods like oysters, pumpkin seeds, or whole grains help the body better utilize protein, resulting in stronger hair. A zinc deficit can lead to hair loss and a dry scalp, leading to dull hair. A good quality multivitamin, such as Base Control from HUM, can help you get enough zinc if you feel you are lacking. Don’t take zinc supplements alone, as high doses of zinc can be toxic over time.
Spinach for Stronger Hair
Leafy green vegetables like spinach, kale, and broccoli contain growth-promoting iron. Many women of childbearing age suffer from iron deficiency, which can decrease the amount of oxygen that reaches the hair from the blood, leading to reduced growth and breakage. Ensure your multivitamin contains the right amount of iron for you since men and postmenopausal women have lower needs. Leafy green vegetables are also high in beta-carotene and vitamin C, which helps fight free radical damage that can dull hair.
Carrots Benefit for Stronger Hair
All orange vegetables, like carrots, sweet potatoes, and mangoes, contain beta-carotene. Beta carotene is the inactive vitamin A form that activates after ingestion. Adequate intake of beta-carotene helps reduce itchy scalp and dandruff. A multivitamin can provide beta-carotene, but it’s always ideal to try to get it from food sources.
A lack of adequate nutrients, and stronger hair, counting vitamins A, C, D, and E, zinc, B vitamins, iron, biotin, protein, and essential fatty acids, can slow hair growth or even cause hair loss. Fortunately, correcting a deficit in any of these nutrients can help treat hair loss and help the rate of hair growth.
