Fünf Lebensmittel für gesunde und schöne Haare

Five foods for healthy and beautiful hair

Most people are not even aware of how much influence nutrition has on our scalp and thus also on hair growth.

Have you heard others say things like "I'm already taking silica" or "I'm already taking biotin, but that doesn't help either"?! Hair Active Expert and National Dietitian Patricia Valderrama Alvarez usually responds to such statements, "Yes, it's great that you're already supplementing your diet. But what does your diet look like in general? What foods are you already using to promote hair growth?” Patricia recommends five foods that make a useful contribution.

walnuts and almonds

These types of nuts contain a lot of zinc and biotin. Zinc is important for a healthy immune system. Biotin promotes beautiful hair, skin and nails and protects against hair loss. A small handful every day also supplies our body with valuable unsaturated fatty acids.

spinach and chard

Especially raw spinach in a salad or smoothie is rich in iron. This in turn enriches our blood with oxygen, which is essential for hair growth. Spinach and chard also contain a lot of folic acid, which gives the hair a healthy shine.


I definitely recommend adding oatmeal to your daily diet. Be it muesli, porridge or for baking. It is not for nothing that oatmeal is an absolute all-rounder. Due to the high fiber content, they promote our digestion and thus help the intestines with detoxification. The zinc it contains promotes the formation of the protein collagen. In the body, this is responsible for ensuring that the hair can anchor itself well in the scalp.

On the other hand, you should be economical when consuming meat and sausages. The cholesterol it contains not only clogs our arteries but also our scalp. Likewise carbohydrates in the form of simple sugars. In addition to classic table sugar, this also includes brown raw cane sugar, rice syrup, date syrup, agave syrup, honey, etc. Simple sugars put a strain on our organism, promote obesity and cardiovascular diseases, fuel cravings and, last but not least, have a negative impact on our hair growth.

Finally, we would like to draw your attention to our new Hair & Vital. This product contains vitamins and minerals in an optimal ratio that is specially tailored to hair growth. With Hair & Vital in combination with a healthy diet, nothing stands in the way of hair growth!
