3 ESSENTIAL NUTRIENTS
3 Essential Nutrients;
Collagen; Skin is made up of 90% collagen protein.
Collagen is also a key component of the hair and nails.
A collagen-rich diet helps to maintain healthy skin, hair, and nails.
A homemade bone broth is a rich source of collagen and will help strengthen nails and hair.
If you consume a well-rounded diet that supports collagen production and absorption (eg. Vitamin C) you're likely to see its benefits on your health.
Hyaluronic Acid; This lubricating fluid is produced naturally by the body.
It has a large capacity to retain water in the skin.
If you suffer from dry scalp, dandruff of flaky skin increasing the hyaluronic acid intake could promote the much needed hydration to make them stronger and healthier.
Broths containing chicken/beef bones are a good source of hyaluronic acid.
Zinc; Zinc supports hair growth. Lack of zinc can cause dry and flaky scalp, and in extreme cases baldness.
Like vitamins E, zinc acts as an anti-inflammatory agent to tackle skin conditions such as eczema and acne.
Nuts and seeds such as almonds and pumpkin seeds are high in zinc.
Probiotics are also needed to increase the absorption rate of zinc.
Make sure to include fermented foods in your diet such as Kefir, yoghurt and raw cheeses.
