At some point throughout our lives, many of us wish for longer, thicker hair. Whether it's due to hair loss or just an overall want for voluptuous hair, lush hair is the goal. There are countless "treatments" out there claiming to give you the hair you always dreamed of; however, few deliver on that promise and many of these treatments are filled with harsh chemicals that can irritate your scalp. Life's Grape believes that the fresh fruit from Mother Nature is the answer to so many of our problems. For example, did you know that vine-dried grapes are good for hair health and help promote longer, thicker hair?
Life's Grape uses Selma Pete grapes, which are high in Vitamin B, iron, Vitamin K, potassium, Vitamin C, and antioxidants. All of these nutrients are necessary when it comes to hair health. According to Healthline, a half cup of vine-dried grapes provides the average female with 7% of the recommended daily amount of iron. Iron plays a huge factor when it comes to hair growth because it carries oxygen to the roots, which enables the hair to grow faster. If you've tried our product, then you know that eating a half-cup is a piece of cake!
While bananas may be known as a great source of potassium, vine-dried grapes actually have more! According to WebMD, one banana has 424mg of potassium, while half a cup of vine- dried grapes has 680mg of potassium. Potassium is crucial when it comes to hair health because, without enough potassium, your hair actually could be at risk of falling out. Livestrong notes that this is due to high-salt diet that prevents the hair follicles from properly absorbing vital nutrients. Adding more potassium into your diet will prevent sodium accumulation around the hair follicles, thus allowing the follicles to get the nutrients they need to be able to grow long and thick. So, the next time you're reaching for a banana, go for a handful of vine-dried grapes instead.
We all know that biotin is crucial when it comes to skin, nail, and hair health. But how do you get biotin? Well, vine-dried grapes are a great source of biotin, which is a part of the Vitamin B family. The average adult needs 30-100mcg of biotin a day and half a cup of vine-dried grapes contains 1.44mg! According to Healthline, increasing your biotin intake can help improve thickness and shine. Just remember, your hair quality will only improve if biotin is consistently in your diet.
Vitamin C not only helps your immune system but also your hair health. Like potassium, too little Vitamin C can result in hair loss. According to the News Journal, Vitamin C in vine-dried grapes maintains the hair's follicle connective tissue, which is known as collagen and promotes hair growth. Vitamin C is easily absorbed and helps improve scalp health to improve hair growth and shine. Now you can turn to Life's Grape products for a delicious way to get your Vitamin C intake.
Finally, we have Vitamin K and antioxidants. Vitamin K helps in the regeneration of hair strands, which can not only help hair grow faster and thus thicker, but also naturally reverse balding. Vitamin K2, to be specific, is crucial to preventing scalp calcification, which is when calcium builds on the scalp and prevents hair growth. Vitamin K2 helps us regulate our calcium intake and maintain a healthy scalp. Now, let's talk about antioxidants. According to Healthline,
antioxidants help remove free radicals from your blood and prevent damage to your cells. While there's countless benefits to this from cancer and heart disease prevention, it also promotes healthy hair. Antioxidants help stimulate hair follicles, which promotes healthy cells and cell turnover to increase the rate and health of hair growth.
