Omega Boost: Enhancing Hair Health with Essential Fatty Acids

Omega Boost: Enhancing Hair Health with Essential Fatty Acids

Are you also worried about hair loss despite having nutritious food? 

Then you must be missing out on ‘Omega 3’. Omega-3 fatty acids are a type of essential fat which plays an important role in general health & also, your hair health. These fatty acids contribute to scalp health and may indirectly support hair growth in several ways: 

  1. Scalp health: Omega-3 helps to maintain healthy scalp by reducing inflammation; thereby supporting healthy hair follicles & encouraging better growth of hair.
  2. Blood circulation: Increases the scalp's blood circulation, ensuring adequate supply of nutrients to hair follicles.
  3. 3. Moisture retention: Helps to retain moisture of the scalp & hair strands which helps in preventing scalp ageing, dryness & brittleness of the hair strands.
  4. Anti-inflammatory properties: Omega-3 is loaded with anti-inflammatory properties, preventing conditions like dandruff, scaling or scalp psoriasis.

All these benefits make omega-3 fatty acids a must-have diet component. Here are some of the good sources: 

 Fish or fish oil: High in omega-3 fatty acids, particularly EPA (Eicosatetraenoic acid) and DHA (Docosahexaenoic acid), which are said to have positive effects on hair health.  

Flaxseeds: They are plant-based omega-3 fatty acid which makes it ideal for vegetarians. Snack on flax seeds once a daily with your tea or coffee or any beverage. 

Chia Seeds: Chia seeds are also plant-based omega acid source. You can add it to your yoghurt, desserts or smoothies. 

Walnuts: They provide ALA (Alpha-lipoic acid) which makes your hair stronger and shiny. Snack on some walnuts every morning or add to your diet in any form. 

If you're considering adding any marketed omega-3 supplements to your diet, it's advisable to consult with a healthcare professional to determine the appropriate dosage and ensure it fits well with your overall health and dietary needs.
